Recapping the Cowboys' week

By Todd Archer

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys will say hello to their former defensive coordinator Rob Ryan on Sunday when they play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

As we recap the Cowboys' week, much of the focus was on Ryan, whose defense did not perform well enough in 2011 and was racked by injury in 2012. So far things have been much better for Ryan in New Orleans.

But Jean-Jacques Taylor said the Cowboys do not miss Ryan.

In our ESPNDallas.com Hot Button question, I think the Cowboys made the right move in firing Ryan. Calvin Watkins took to Ryan’s defense.

Sean Payton and Jason Garrett are old friends. One is calling the plays again. One isn’t.

DeMarcus Ware will make his return Sunday after a three-game absence with a quadriceps strain.

The Cowboys are looking for a win against a good team this season. Beating the Saints could go a long way for them.

Jimmy Graham will be the focal point of the defensive game plan.

Dez Bryant’s back caused a stir this week.

JJT had a great column on what Tony Dorsett’s revelation that he has CTE means to him and his son, who plays football.

In this week’s Double Coverage, I go over the game with Mike Triplett.
