IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan isn't hiding his desire to beat Cleveland in his first game against the Browns since they dumped him two years ago.
Ryan, the twin brother of New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, says Sunday's game at Cowboys Stadium is personal for a simple reason. He didn't think coach Eric Mangini and the staff had enough time to turn a franchise that has missed the playoffs nine straight years.
For Ryan, it doesn't really matter that Cleveland's ownership and front office changed midseason. He says ``of course it's personal'' when you ``pour everything you have into it.''
Ryan's first year in Dallas was rough, but the Cowboys are holding steady this season at eighth in total defense despite several significant injuries.
