Rob Ryan Actually Shows Humility, Praises Eagles

"I know they've got great coaches and all that, but I've documented that enough," Ryan said. "I think their players are great. Obviously those X's and O's move so fast. There's not a team like that that has the speed that they have. That's the biggest thing you've got to deal with - their speed and their players."

This is a far cry from his comments around training camp. Though, allowing 34 points to the All-Hype team will certainly go a long way to easing off the smack talking pedal.

Talk is cheap, and hopefully the Ryan family learns that sooner rather than later.
