In the hyper-competitive world of the NFL, where coaches work obscene hours, and playbooks are thicker than phone books, there’s not a lot of monkey business when it comes to preparing for game day. Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan needed a go-to play for his trip to Philadelphia though, and according to his play chart, he was calling Pat’s King of Steaks if the Cowboys found themselves in a pinch. That’s only a partial exaggeration, by the way.
As you can see below, Ryan dedicated a sizeable portion of his chart to an advertisement for the popular steak shop – literally! Still no word on whether he likes ‘em wit or wit-out though.
Rob of course is the son of former Eagles’ head coach Buddy, and looks like he is no stranger to the guilty pleasure that is our cheesesteak, so he probably knows a thing or two about the local establishments. But what’s the Pat’s logo doing on there? According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Ryan does it for fun when he’s on the road, and the advertising is free.
It would’ve been nice if the Cowboys had given Pat’s a call before the game. Maybe a few sandwiches could have slowed down a defense that knocked Michael Vick out of the game and forced rookie Nick Foles into a pair of turnovers. Ah, well. Let’s go eat.
