IRVING, Texas -- It's hard to have much hope for the Dallas Cowboys' defense right now.
Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is basically holding open tryouts to try to plug holes at inside linebacker and in the secondary. The recent results have been about as pretty as the pictures of a shirtless Ryan that surfaced after the Cowboys' training camp beach party.
"Hell, we've got to fix it," a weary Ryan said on Sunday night. "We've got to play better than that, and we will. We've got some excellent coaches, we've got some excellent players. We'll find out what we can do best with what we have."
I'm happy to help. Here's some free advice, Rob: Play to the strengths of the only two certified studs left standing on that decimated defense.
