    Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn’t like to picture the Cowboys defense without nose tackle Jay Ratliff.

    There’s something missing without him, he said.

    “He’s the heart of the defense,” Ryan said. “He’s right in the middle of the defense. And when he’s not there, you know, obviously we’ve got a big body out there without the huge heart that this guy plays with. So it’ll be great to get him back.”

    Translation: "When he's not there in the middle, we have to play Olshansky there, and I don't like that."

    (I guess Brent and Lissemore played a lot too, but first series seemed mostly Olshansky)
