“We work against better receivers with Miles Austin and Dez Bryant,” Ryan said. “They are probably two of the premier receivers in football, but this guy is right there. He’s almost that good. He’s excellent.To be fair, Dallas' (inevitable) epic collapse is not entirely on the Cowboy DC who needs a haircut and some exercise. Tony Romo (who I respect a ton for playing through a significant injury) made some bad throws, three of which were intercepted, two of which were returned for Lions TDs. Additionally, in a key spot, Felix Jones dropped a pass in the two-minute drill that allowed the Lions to get fresh D-linemen in, which immediately caused a key sack. Add to that the fact that on the final Dallas offensive play, the WR ran out-of-bounds well short of the first down...on fourth down. (which Joe Buck didn't seem to notice either, but really, who's surprised?) Finally, it's unfair to act like the Lions aren't a very talented team with the potential to come back in a game like this.
“We’re going to get after him. I know he’s on some touchdown thing like that, whatever. [Detroit offensive coordinator] Scott Linehan has done this before with great receivers withRandy Moss. If the guy is as good as Randy Moss, I’m going to go in there and hide. Thank God he’s not, but he’s a pretty damn good player.”

Therefore, a brief list, in no particular order, of things Rob Ryan can eat:
- His words
- His foot
- Coupons for free haircuts and weight loss programs
- A bowl of dicks
- The knowledge that he is responsible for a historic Dallas collapse
- Everything at an all-you-can-eat buffet
Congrats, meanwhile, to the Lions on an excellent 4-0 start, proving the current regime is finally making the changes necessary to turn a floundering team around.
