Rob Ryan, who's done enough talking in half a season in Dallas to make up for all of the silent defensive coordinators throughout NFL history, was forced to eat his words Sunday night.
"It's not the first time I've said something and gotten my butt kicked," Ryan told The Dallas Morning News. "I got out-coached, out-everything. It's all on me."
It's all on me? Not only is Ryan more visible than the average head coach, he talks like one, too.
If you're wondering whether or not Ryan's constant chatter is getting under anyone's skin in Dallas, that doesn't appear to be the case. Head coach Jason Garrett "danced around the issue" Sunday night, according to the report, while owner Jerry Jones downplayed the situation.
"I don't have that issue," Jones said of concerns that Ryan's words motivate the opposition. "I just wish comments could make a difference somewhere. They don't, anywhere."
