Dallas DC Rob Ryan on RGIII: “He’s a special player, but I don’t like him”

The Dallas Cowboys will be the next team to try to attempt to slow down Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III as the two teams clash on Thanksgiving.

“He is a special player,” Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said to the Dallas Morning News. “That’s why they traded half a team to get him. Obviously, he’s a tremendous athlete and they say he is a hell of a kid. I don’t like him, but I know he is very talented. This game looks like it’s in slow-motion for him already and hopefully we speed it up a whole lot this week.”

Ryan has cause to be concerned about Griffin as he has posted an NFL-best 130.2 passer rating against the blitz, completing 31-of-50 pass attempts for 442 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions.

“It’s hard to blitz a guy when you got to keep your option responsibility,” Ryan said. “When you start going off on it like that, it’s a great thing to do when it’s pass and when they don’t block it. But you have to be smart.”

RG3 isn't that special of a player. In another year, he will just be another Cam Newton. I'm still playing my cards that he's a bust, I know this to be true... I'm just waiting for the day it happens, and won't be surprised at all.

Rob Ryan, you my fat friend, are about as predictable as a chronic alcoholic in a room full of booze. You and your loud mouthed rants are really boring, much less obnoxious. So you don't like RG III...let's list the top x reasons; 1) He is thinner than you. 2) He can see his when he looks at his feet. 3) He can read your defensive schemes as easily as a comic book and really aren't they almost the same thing? 4) He an NFL caliber quarterback unlike Tony Romo. 5) In his rookie season he shred your high paid veteran defensive unit to shreds. 6) He makes a lot more money in his early twenties than you have in your whole life. 7) He has a future in the NFL, you, we'll we'll see how long you have left at the end of this season. 8) The sports media gives him a lot of coverage and paints him as a talented player, you on the other hand get minimal coverage most of which results from you making obnoxious comments like the one mentioned here. 9) RG III appears to keep his hair neatly styled while you continue to support that trailer trash growth that screams old man redneck who likes to drink PBR while sitting on your couch outside of your mobile home. 10 ) RG III is laughing all the way to the bank when idiots like you make such immature comments to the press. Ok Rob, we've been listening to your B.S. long enough. Your record speaks for itself. Maybe Andy Reid will give you a shot after he finds his next job but I don't think too many other teams will.

That's alright Rob.  Don't like RGIII. Rumor has it he likes your defensive schemes...ALOT.  Almost as much as the Patriots like Rex Ryan's coaching skills...

Previously "unliked" items for Ryan and his brother Rex are hair care products and SansaBelt pants.  To be "liked" by them you have to be something that can be served with Corn Flakes or ketchup.
