Rex Ryan praises Manning; disses Brady

By Marc A. Greenberg

New York Jets Head coach Rex Ryan was more than flattering when describing Colts QB Peyton Manning.  Tom Brady, on the other hand… not so much.

“There’s nobody like this guy in the league,” Ryan said of Manning. “Nobody studies like him. I know Brady thinks he does.  I think there’s probably a little more help with Belichick with Brady than there is with Peyton Manning.”

Ryan added praise for the Colts coaching staff as well. “Tom Moore has done a great job with [Manning] forever, Caldwell and Tony Dungy and things like that,” Ryan said. “But it’s Peyton Manning, that’s who it is.”

If the Jets beat the Colts on Saturday, Ryan and Brady will meet in New England on January 16.
