Jim Schwartz Is Glad He Has 'Cowboys' Third Best Receiver'

Jim Schwartz took a little dig at Rob Ryan’s comments last week regarding Calvin Johnson and his standing in relation to Miles Austin and Dez Bryant. Schwartz was set up in his postgame for a one-liner and delivered.

I’m glad the third best wide receiver on the Cowboys is on our team.

To the victor goes the ability to have the final word on the trash talk, I suppose. In case you didn’t see it last week, Ryan claimed that both of the Cowboys’ starters are better than Megatron.

We work against better receivers with Miles Austin and Dez Bryant. They are probably two of the premier receivers in football, but this guy is right there. He’s almost that good. He’s excellent.

Anyone familiar with Ryan – or any Ryan – knows that he is going to talk that way about his players, but the Lions obviously enjoyed reminding of his quotes after the result.
