    During a conference call Wednesday, the 13-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker made it clear that the Cowboys run defense shouldn’t be expecting to get on track against the Ravens.

    “They can look to do whatever they want to do but it ain’t going to be what they think it’s going to be,” Lewis said.

    Vickers

    When told of Lewis’ comments, Vickers said, “That’s just the way he feels. I don’t remember him being a Houdini or anything like that. He’s entitled to his own opinion. And if that’s how he feels, that’s cool, too. Kudos to him.”

    Vickers has shown a better ability to talk than block so far...

    That was some weak smack talk, Vic.

    "Oh, is that what he said? Well, uh, that's fine. I mean, he's not David Blaine. He's not, right? Yea, uh.. so its fine. Just uh.. please don't hurt us, ok?"

    Vick can block for the bums up front. They gotta do their job too. They haven't.

    Wasn't Vickers supposed to be some beast for us?

    Is a great FB supposed to cover up how bad we are on the OL?

    In order for a FB to get to the LB to actually block him, there has to be a lane to run through.


    Kind of hard to block LBs when offensive linemen are getting driven backwards into your path.

    The swagless robotic culture of this franchise is starting to rub off on Vic.

    "Swagger" is overrated.

    Sad but true. Its why when I talk to other opposing teams fans and they say we have some of the dumbest fans in the league I don't even debate it. Its not even worth it because its some truth to it. Blaiming Vickers for the lack of running game is silly.

    Couldn't disagree more :laugh2:

    Swagger has begun to be used as a synonym for confidence, more or less...and I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn't think that confidence is important.

    I am actually starting to waver on this. I was very happy when Rob Ryan shot his mouth off last year, I thought it was the kick that the team needed to play with an attitude....didnt happen.

    Now his brother (king of swag) is about to get run out of NY. I think that schtick may only go so far - especially when you get smashed in the face. That said, I think the Fischer, Harbaugh, types can be a swag that is controlled.

    I think Rob has toned it exactly where it should be.

    Whenever you two are done.. you may look back through the thread and see that NO ONE HERE HAS SAID that Vickers is to blame for the lack of a run game.

    :rolleyes:

    Coaches should never, ever, talk smack like he did. You can say he has swagger, but if you're not a player, you need to keep your mouth shut.

    Some are dumb, some are spoiled, some are merely trolls from other teams.

    It's as obvious as the Sun coming up tomorrow.
