Rob Ryan calls (presumably) the Eagles the "all hype team" and adds "we're going to beat their ass"

Even Marcus Spears finds it funny Rob Ryan called him a "bully."
Even Marcus Spears finds it funny Rob Ryan called him a "bully."

Here's the actual quote, via Josh Ellis of the Cowboys' team website.

"I've got three bullies over there waiting for Thursday," Rob Ryan said. "These are proven players, and that's what we need. I don't know if we win the all-hype team, I think that might have gone to somebody else, but we're going to beat their ass when we play them."

The "three bullies" Ryan is referring to?  None other than Marcus Spears, Kenyon Coleman, and Jason Hatcher.  Thanks, Rob: You've just given Eagles fans (or me, at least) a new, funny nickname for three stiffs on your terrible defense.

And as for the "all hype team" comment, I seem to recall reading a story that Jerry Jones, Stephen Jones, and Rob Ryan were all passing around a cell phone with Nnamdi Asomugha on the other end, after which there were celebratory fist bumps.  I guess they were trying to convince Nnamdi to sign with the Eagles in an attempt to stay "hype free?"

I don't even think Eagles fans should be mad by this.  It's really more comical than anything.
