Whatever it is, Ryan continues to keep his own counsel and vowed that at least for the foreseeable future, the rest of his team will, too.
"We never say that it always has to be a bed of roses," Ryan said. "But again, put your name to it. I think people would respect you a lot more for it."
So far, exactly one player on his team has faced all the questions, tried to answer each one and consistently put his name behind them. Fat lot of good that's done.
