Vick on Ryan's August comments: 'Maybe we'll make him eat his words.' (US PRESSWIRE)

Posted by Ryan Wilson

Way back in August, before lackluster effort, injuries and poor coaching combined to inevitably doom some teams' season (even after just seven weeks), Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was doing what he does on most days: coaching and flapping his gums.

One particular topic he spoke of early in training camp is of interest this week because it pertained to the Eagles, then everyone's Super Bowl favorite, and in Vince Young's words: a Dream Team. (The saddest part? Young's NFL career will be known more for those two words than anything he ever did on the field.)

Ryan preferred "all-hype team" to Dream Team and it turns out, he was right. The Eagles were 2-4 entering their bye week. He also promised to "beat their ass" when Dallas and Philly played which is this Sunday night.

During a Wednesday conference call, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was asked about Ryan's comments.

"We know it's a competitive game and sometimes people say things they regret days, weeks and months later. I think from a competitive standpoint, he was just talking. It was nothing that we really paid any attention to because we know what really counts is when you step out on the football field and whoever wins and loses the game, that's what matters."

Vick's right, of course. And Ryan (along with his brother, Rex) is known to talk a lot, and almost no subject is off limits. In the past three months, Rob has weighed in on his brother's freakiness, then mocked him for "ring envy," and made a silly claim that Miles Austin and Dez Bryant were better than Calvin Johnson. But even Ryan was smart enough to stop short of angering Bill Belichick and the Patriots before their matchup two weeks ago.

Vick admitted Wednesday that when Ryan made his "all-hype team" remarks he did something he usually doesn't: took to Twitter where he politely pointed out that "People talk the talk, but can't walk the walk when necessary! We accept all challenges here in the city of Brotherly Love!!!!!"

During a radio appearance Wednesday, Vick sounded a tad more concerned than he did during the conference call. "Maybe we'll make him eat his words. I hope he backs it up. … Players, we're on the field, we're on the gridiron. Coach, you on the sideline coaching. I mean, you don't know what it's like to be in this battle."

Head coach Andy Reid, who has other issues occupying his time, didn't have much to say about Ryan's comments. "I don't get into those," he said. "We just play. We practice and play."

And keep the players from calling out the front office.

So let me understand this? Coming from Vick, he hope that Rob Ryan backs his words up on the Eagles being the " All Hype Team". So Vick wants Ryan to prove the Eagles are all Hype and no substance?Foot in mouth
