The Cowboys were dealt a serious blow to their defense this week when it was announced that linebacker Sean Lee will miss the remainder of the season because of ligament damage in his right big toe suffered during Dallas’ win over Carolina. While DeMarcus Ware remains their best player, Lee was important in run defense and, as a white inside linebacker, an integral source of grittiness for the rest of the team.
No surprise, then, that Rob Ryan is upset the loss. What’s surprising is how broken up he got about it.
Rex Ryan said his brother Rob was “literally crying on the phone” over the loss of LB Sean Lee. Everyone in league seems to appreciate Lee.

That’s right. Let it out, big fella. The Wolfman isn’t all about braying to the moon and six-week benders in Tijuana. He’s got feelings. Lots of ’em. And when he lets ’em, he lets ’em all the f*ck the way out. Holding back is for repressed pussies. Of course, it’s not just the loss of a key player that makes lose it. Rob cries about lots of things, such as:
A GREAT ass.
“No Van Parking” signs
Dances With Wolves
That acid trip where he sees his grandparents’ eyes on everything
When a stripper retires
Someone swiping his ‘ludes
A stern look from Buddy
Getting cut off at Golden Corral.
The first time he saw the Three Wolf Moon shirt.
A silver bullet through the heart
