    IRVING, Texas -- As the injuries piled up on the defensive side of the ball during the course of last season, everybody associated with the Cowboys said they could not be used as an excuse.

    Rob Ryan kept saying it every week but always with some sort of snide remark, just to let everybody know that the injuries were why the defense kept sliding in the rankings.

    Hey, it’s true. Injuries did affect Ryan’s ability to call what he wanted. By the end of the year he was without Sean Lee, Barry Church, Bruce Carter, Kenyon Coleman, Orlando Scandrick and Jay Ratliff. He had DeMarcus Ware playing with one arm.

    But if injuries could not have been used as an excuse two weeks ago, then they can’t be used as an excuse now that Ryan has been told he’s no longer the Cowboys defensive coordinator.

    His two-year run was filled with more soundbites than highlights.

    No it doesn't. And Buddy Ryan is widely (And rightly) regarded as one of the top 10 defensive minds in NFL history.

    He will be missed bigtime.

    This was probably another drunken-stupor-fire-the-coach Jerry Jones moment.
