Nice article.

Let me sum up what you said.

Rob Ryan sux.

I wouldn't hire either of the Ryan brothers to mow my lawn let alone coach my team.


Rob Ryan looks as smart as he is.

What I want for Christmas is a real GM. We are so close to being a good-fun football team. Please Jerry, grant us our Christmas wish. We've been good this year...and the team hasn't.
