    SAN ANTONIO -- It's tough enough to block Jay Ratliff when offensive linemen know where he'll be. Just imagine the challenge when the element of surprise is added to the equation.

    Now you understand why the orneriest member of the Dallas Cowboys is practically giddy about playing for creative new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

    "I don't know if I've ever felt this excited my whole career," Ratliff said.

    Ratliff can sum up the reason for his excitement in one word: scheme.

    It'll be great to see Ratliff get back to form.

    Rob Ryan has a lot on his shoulders. I hope the players come through.

    Perhaps he could consult with his belt buckle -- no one is carrying around more weight than it is.

    Here's a better word, Jay: Execution.

    Scheme only carries you so far and then only at select times. Talent, execution, accountability, and no excuses are the trademarks of the best defenses. Schemes are secondary to all of the above.
