    IRVING, Texas – Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan does a lot of things well. Lying isn’t one of them.

    Take, for example, his answer when asked how often he’d mentioned his beef with the Browns to the Dallas defense this week.

    Yes, this one is personal to Ryan. He declared that while the rest of the Cowboys were still celebrating last week’s win over the Eagles.

    The Browns fired Ryan along with head coach Eric Mangini a couple of years ago. While Ryan has fondness for several players on the Browns’ roster, he’s bitter toward the franchise.

    “Absolutely. I spent a lot of time in those offices, too,” Ryan said. “In fact, I slept in them for seven straight weeks when I said, ‘Hey, I’m not going home until we win a game.’ I’ll never say that again. ...

    He's made it pretty obvious all week.

    I'm really expecting a dominant performance by the defense this week.

    I really hope it's NOT personal. I don't want him making irrational decisions to satisfy his anger.

    Just call the right plays. No anger. No bitterness. No irrational thoughts.

    We don't need that crap. We can beat them with solid football !!!

    He's gonna blitz both CB's, including the the nickel back on every play because of his hatred for the Browns.

    The Browns went 5-11 in 2009 and 2010, Ryan’s two seasons as Cleveland’s defensive coordinator. His bitterness stems from his belief that Mangini didn’t get a fair chance to finish a rebuilding job, not that the Browns didn’t consider Ryan as a head coach.

    How ironic if Rob experiences that exact same thing yet again here. Say Red finishes weak and Jerry fires him and brings in Payton or Holmgren who want there own DC. Would feel a bit sorry for Rob.
