    The Cowboys defense has had trouble stopping opponents in the second half of the last three games.

    In answering questions on that topic Friday, Rob Ryan pointed out that his defense has allowed only one team more than 20 points over the last five games and that the Cowboys rank fifth in the league in scoring defense over that span.

    "Guys, honestly now, I mean, they had a couple of drives there, but with 10 points in a half, that's not anything to jump off a building for,'' Ryan said. "I mean, although people around here are. But don't worry, they won't be this week or any other week.

    I've learned to pay absolutely no attention to Ryan and his proclamations.

    He's actually right about this one. People are overreacting to our the performance of our defense in recent weeks.

    I don't like the "let ups" on certain drives by the defense, but when they keep the overall score under 20 points they've given the team a great chance to win.

    And the same people are folding at the same moments just like last year. It doesn't matter if they give up 20 or 200. If they fold when we need them then they arent doing what we need to win. Yes the offense has a responsibility but the complaint is and has been that when the going gets tough or defense gets going... backwards down the field. :bang2:

    I don't think anyone expected the defense to be the 2000 Ravens and completely shut teams out every other week.

    There's been some spots where the defense has struggled but in the grand scheme the results have been pretty stout.

    The only game where the defense just didn't show up was Philly and they were in LaLa land with the offense that day.

    And I'm not quite sure I agree with the, "when needed most" argument. The only reason there are times when the defense is "needed most" is because offense isn't really doing much at all.

    This offense is just too boom or bust. If they don't get quicker scores, they generally don't do much at all.

    Since the bye week, Dallas has only managed 16 drives that were greater than 4:00.

    Of those 16, only 6 have resulted in a TD. 8 have resulted in a FG and 2 have been punts.

    Hey Rob, how did that defense of yours do Sunday versus the Giants???? Mr. Hype, please do me a favor and get a HC job somewhere. Rob, fyi......when you blitz every down...its not good. When your players dont know who to cover, its not good. When you are up by 12 with 5 min left and you blow it...definitely, not good.

    I'm done with this guy. He's Jerry Glanville 2.0 - like JG his defenses are all smoke and mirrors, based on gimmickry and unsound blitzes.

    Hit the road, biker boy.

    Get a real GM so he can hire Cowher.

    Our players on defense are made out of glass.

    Giants did anything they wanted on offense. Ryan's defense is a joke. Dallas gets run on, passed on, horrible. Fire him now. today. You can't do any worse. 3rd and 22...first down. 3rd and 15....first down. Doesn't matter, fire him fire him fire him.

    In the biggest games he fails every time. His blitzes fail. People running free down the field... rediculous. High school crap.

    All you have to do is look at the Browns. They are better now that he left. He is not a defensive guru. Fire him now. I started playing MW3 with 3 minutes left because I knew his defense would fail. fail fail fail. Every time.

    Get out of Dallas Ryan. You talk a big game but can't back it up. You are surely your father's son.

    Your dad was a moron and so are you.

    We never should have trusted a Ryan.
