This quote says a lot

A lot of people here have read the article about Victor Butler talking about our beloved Cowboys defense. I loved reading the article as much as the next fan, but I believe that the quote about Coach Ryan underneath the picture says a lot more: "When you've got a coach that trusts in you, it makes you want to go out there and perform better."

For Rob Ryan to trust these guys after two weeks of training camp is very impressive. Especially after watching the tape from last year's defense. I don't know about you but it takes me more than two weeks before I trust someone. This just shows that Rob Ryan is a leader. He may be brash and speak his mind but he knows exactly what he's doing when he says stuff like the all hype quote. He's doing two things: first he's telling his guys he trusts them and secondly he's building up their confidence.

After last year they need a little boost. For some reason I never got the sense that Wade never trusted our players. We all know that if something went wrong, Wade would be on the sideline with a dumbfounded look on his face. Nobody will know why this was. He could have trusted them and was amazed they made a mistake, hopefully that was the case. On the other hand, he could have been thinking I made that call and they messed it up, but we'll never really know why he often had that look on his face. There will be no more coaches with that dumbfounded looks on their faces this year.

This season, if something goes wrong, Coach Ryan will be in these players' faces, not because he's being a jerk, it's because he wants to hold these players accountable. His history of benching players like Shaun Rogers and Michael Huff, who a lot of people were calling us to sign, shows that he's willing to bench some very talented players if they are not playing to their potential.
