10:05 AM ET 11.17 | Rob Ryan left Cleveland before the Browns told him he was no longer wanted. But before he landed in Dallas, he had an idea that his days by the Cuyahoga River were numbered when head coach Eric Mangini was fired after the 2010 season. And that's why the Cowboys' defensive coordinator said Sunday's game against his old team was "personal." "Any time you pour everything into it and apparently management didn't see it as good enough, of course it's personal," said Ryan, who spent two seasons in Cleveland when the Browns posted a 10-22 record Even though Ryan said he wouldn't have considered replacing Mangini if he were given the opportunity to interview for the job, he seemed miffed that he wasn't at least provided the chance. "It's not like they asked me to stay," said, Ryan, who had one year left on his contract in Cleveland. "But they should have. But I would have said, "'No.'"

With all due respect to my friends who have suffered through these years as Browns fans...

I hope we beat them by 30.

Finally a team this blob might be able to backup his claims.

I had my doubts about him...

But this defense plays for him, Canuck... and plays well. I'd really like to see them generate some more turnovers - but overall I have no complaints.

No one has a "personal" game against the Browns. They are the most rivarly free team in the NFL

Yep... usually a rivalry implies there's some type of competition happening.

For a good laugh just watch the play calling for the Browns!

As a die hard Browns fan it pains me to say this but the Browns are going to lose by 2 touchdowns.

Meanwhile in local news, Browns fans are storming the castle with hate in their eyes!

I agree with you Otis but I don't like anything Ryan. Way too much mouth and way too little substance.

I have to agree. Not many things in life I like less than the Ryan family tree. As they say however, even a broken clock is right twice a day and a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then, but I swear I'll shoot the monkey that types Shakespeare again.
