Per Jerome Solomon from the Ultimate Texans Blog: Trading DeMeco Ryans to the Philadelphia Eagles was a body blow to Texans players that will take some time to absorb. Here are a few text messages from current or former players: "WTF!! You know what they are up to?" "Damn, man, and they talk about loyalty." "Cold-blooded, man, cold-blooded. But Meco will be better off for it. He’s going to dominate in Philly." "They don’t what leadership means, do they? Bet they won’t finish No. 2 in defense next season." "It’s an ugly business. We’re not the same team without him. Gonna take a lot to replace Meco." Players went onto Twitter with public comments as well. Owen Daniels: "Seriously? Meco too?" Brian Cushing: "I wouldn’t be half the player or person I am today without @DRyans59 this one hurts. Philly got a unbelievable player and leader today. #59″ Glover Quin: "Honored to have had the chance to play with and learn from @DRyans59.. True leader and great person… Preciate you bro."
