Rob Ryan wants a piece of the Eagles

Question: how often does the most hyped preseason team turn out to be the best team?  As any fan of the 2008 and 2010 Cowboys can tell you, not often. Since the Eagles started signing every single free agent available, the hype machine has been in full force.  Well, a certain long haired, brash defensive coordinator isn’t have any of it.

Earlier today, Rob Ryan launched a thinly veiled shot at the Eagles, not so vaguely referring to them as the “all-hype” team and stating that the Cowboys will “beat their ass”.  I dig it.  I love how the Cowboys are settling into an underdog role this year.  They seem to be at their best when expectations are lowest.  And, with the underwhelming additions they’ve made so far, expectations have reached an all time low. 

Ryan brings a certain edge that this team has lacked for some time.  You could even argue that they haven’t had true swagger since The Playmaker was carted off the field in Philadelphia.  Ryan might bring that to the table.  Of course, if they don’t perform on defense, Ryan’s approach won’t be well received.
