08:11 AM ET 02.18 | Rob Ryan, along with the Cowboys' new coaching hires, met the media Thrusday, where Ryan was reportedly confident, cocky and even a little profane. "I'm going to do a great [expletive] job and you're going to see that." Ryan said. ... He refused to get into the problems of last year's defense under the departed Wade Phillips, saying he didn't want "to farm on anybody's land." He did promise that the Cowboys would go from being one of the worst defenses in the league to one of the best in 2011. "We're not making excuses," Ryan said. "We're going to be great the first week of the season. We're going to be ready to go. To be honest with you, I haven't seen talent like this on a defense in a long time. I'm awfully anxious to get going with them."

he also said daddy Ryan will be at training camp and hopes that people don't throw batteries. Good luck with that! Btw...notice the pic is not of a defender. LOL!!!

I like swearing..."What's the **** is up **** sucker's!".

I am wondering what egregious sin we may have committed that we are being treated to threads about Robby and Rexxy this morning.

February 18, 2011  08:23 AM ET

Yeah...I don't think they'll improve much on D, sadly.

Rob's gonna do a lot of swearing when his defense is on the field against the Eagles and Giants.

I think he called Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins cowards in that interview. Too bad Garrett is not going to let his coaches talk to the press next year.

"Thrusday"? Is that a new holiday?

February 18, 2011  08:29 AM ET

Hell yeah Ryan, bring it to them!

Jenkins is! He's as useless as an umbrella in a hurricane.

He gave a rousing interview. Now he and the defense can go get a ****ing snack.

Did'nt see the interview but watched a lot of his daddy when he was with the Bears and the players on Dallas will be ready to strap it on for him.Dallas needs an image and Ryan will give them one.

That's the hope. That D last season was as soft as the cupcake who created it.

Don't know about "greatness" from the defense, but it will be hard to surpass the profanity coming from the their fans from last years performance.

DeMarcus Ware needs to get fired up -probably the most talented pass rusher in the league but sometimes he doesn't quite give it his all.
They need some safeties mainly and it isn't a very safety rich draft
