NBC Dallas- Fort Worth:
Remember a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about Rob Ryan potentially getting interviews for head coaching jobs this offseason?
That was premature, huh? In light of what went down on Sunday night against the Giants, it might be more productive to ruminate about whether or not Ryan should keep his current job than it would be to wonder about his chances of a promotion.
If that seems overly harsh, then you clearly spent your Sunday night doing something other than watching Ryan's defense embarrass itself in the fourth quarter. The team needed one stop in the final 5:41 to get a win that would make a diivisonal title theirs to lose. They needed one big stand to avoid another meltdown and they needed Ryan's defense to give it to them.
It didn't happen. Over two drives, Eli Manning took the Cowboys 138 yards in less time than it takes to heat up a frozen pizza. Both drives ended in touchdowns and both of them came with ample help from a Cowboys defense that failed m...

Rob Ryan really hasn't improved anything on the defensive side of the ball, and his defense's failure may have cost the Cowboys the NFC East title.
Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is a big fan of Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Ryan agrees with Manning that he’s one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks. “If you watch [the Giants’] tape their last two games, you don’t want to watch it,” Ryan said. “Eli Manning threw 22 straight completions against the Saints, then [...]
The Cowboys gave up 37 points to the Giants Sunday night, including two touchdowns in the final six minutes. Instead of blaming Tony Romo, Jason Garrett, or Dallas’ typical December collapses, NFL analyst Keyshawn Johnson says the defense is the big problem. Specifically, he says Rob Ryan’s complicated playbook is a concern for the team. [...]
Rob Ryan's defense has many questions to answer after allowing Eli Manning to torch them again.
The Cowboys have begun their annual meltdown and Bill Barnwell is looking for the scapegoat. I agree with most of his assessments except (and I never thought I'd say this) blaming Tony Romo for the loss. Romo gave up a horrific safety and missed Miles Austin once but other than that had a pretty good game. In the end however the Cowboys lost because they couldn't stop...

Ok I have read the past few posts of my fellow fans and bloggers. One thing is really starting to bother me about this sunday’s game. That you are blaming Romo for this loss. It was NOT Romo’s fault we lost this game. He got the job done. When we needed him too, he drove the team down the field, made the plays and got HIS job done. How is throwing for 321 yards with 4 touchdowns...
ARLINGTON – The play of the Cowboys defense has been a major late-season disappointment.
With the exception of the Thanksgiving Day win over Miami, Rob Ryan’s crew hasn’t made any stops at crunch time in the past four weeks.
In losing 37-34 to the Giants on Sunday night, Dallas allowed New York to amass 510 total yards, including 110 on the ground, an eye-popping number considering...
This one is on the defense.
It seems to be a recurring trend this season. The defense fails to stop an opponent with the game on the line. It happened against the New York Jets. It happened against the Detroit Lions. It happened in New England versus the Patriots. Last week, it happened against the Cardinals. And now, with the ability to all but wrap up the division title...
