Rob Ryan: “I got out-coached tonight by Andy Reid”

Oct 31, 2011, 2:52 AM EDT

Oft-criticized head coach Andy Reid might have been on the right end of a coaching meltdown for once.
“Plain and simple, I got out-coached tonight by Andy Reid and some of his staff tonight,” Ryan said. “I never gave our guys a chance and the whole thing is on me. Our defensive staff did a great job and I just had a bad game plan. I just called a terrible game.”

Ryan, of course, was at the heart of the trash talk heading into Sunday night’s game, referring to the Eagles as the “all-hype team” back in August, and used the term again this week. Whether the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator was right about the Birds or not remains to be seen, but they did their part to fulfill Vince Young’s prophecy for one game at least.

And how often do we get the chance to say Andy Reid definitively out-coached somebody standing on the opposite sidelines?
