    IRVING, Texas – The presence of rookie sensation Robert Griffin III won’t reduce the confidence of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

    Ryan once again wasn’t bashful about discussing the Cowboys’ chances on Thanksgiving Day against the Redskins, despite 11 players either limited or not practicing Wednesday.

    “We’re not complaining,” Ryan said. “We’re happy to be playing in this game. The whole country’s watching and they want to see America’s team win, and we’re going to.”

    He clarified afterward that he wasn’t trying to guarantee a win Thanksgiving Day against the Redskins; he just knows what he wants to do in regards to slowing down the rookie quarterback.

    Ryan said speeding the game up for Griffin and playing a smash-mouth style against an offensive attack that features a variety of collegiate-style plays and formations will be critical. Griffin’s ability to run the option and elude tacklers can make life tough on an unprepared defense, especially one that likes to blitz.

    Unprepared defenses that like to blitz get burned by RG3?

    Seeing how we only rush 3 so often = no problem.

    Its the "unprepared" part that worries me.
