    Training camp hasn't ended with the Cowboys leaving the Alamodome on Wednesday, but here are seven defensive observations from the 14 days spent in San Antonio:

    ** Rob Ryan did not disappoint. The new defensive coordinator caused a mini-storm with his “most-hyped team” stuff and kept quiet for a little bit, but he delivered.

    ** Best defensive player of camp? It’s a tie between DeMarcus Ware and Jay Ratliff. Ware might get the advantage because he was out there every day with Ratliff missing a few days with a hip injury. During the year, however, you will be saying, ‘Look at where Ratliff is lined up on this play,’ a ton.
