Jason Garrett: "We can't do that" in response to Rob Ryan's penalty

Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan got a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct because he was on the field, part of his response to yelling at an opposing player. It was the result of frustration at what the Cowboys believed were missed holding calls.

“There were a couple of times we felt like, when their quarterback moved in the pocket, our guys were getting held,” Garrett said. “And as a reaction on the sidelines, guys were emotional about that. One of their players came over and kind of hollered at our sidelines, and Rob hollered back.

“We can’t do that. We have to keep our emotions in check. That was the scenario there about a potential call and their players’ reaction to us, and Rob had a reaction.”

Asked if the penalty was because Ryan was talking to a player, Garrett said, “I think the bigger issue was he was out on the field. That was the explanation they gave me.”

Rob Ryan, Coach Landry once said, "Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you're in control, they're in control." Rob, you are out of control!

The Jason Garrett need to bring this holding of our defensensive lineman to the attention of the league. Demarcus was not only held on several occassions this game but he was bear-hugged on one occassion I saw. D-Ware should start complaining to the officials himself as well because they seem to turn a "blind eye" to holding when it comes to Dallas.

Yes. I like Rob Ryan bringing some emotion to the team, but he cant be stupid. You cant be criticizing your players for not being under control when you do it yourself.
