Coach on the field

Rex Ryan, Jets head coach:

It’s not just a coach on the field. You give the coaching community too much credit. This guy is one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the game. He is one of the smartest guys. It’s not just a coach dialing up plays, he dials his own plays up. Each play has three options. He comes up and takes option one, whatever it is. Or “Forget those options, I’m going to go to option four.”

This is who he is. The guy is tremendous. There is no one else like this guy in the league. Nobody studies like him. I know [Tom] Brady thinks he does. I think there’s probably a little more help from [Bill] Belichick with Brady than there is with Peyton Manning. Tom Moore has done a great job with him for forever, and [Jim] Caldwell and Tony Dungy. It’s Peyton Manning. That’s who it is.

  • He’s catching a lot of flack for saying this from ESPN, but crap it’s true. And I don’t think it was a big shot at Brady – everyone knows Belichick is calling the shots. Manning is unbelievable, there may never be another like him.

  • Favre has great seasons followed by terrible one’s….this year being the latter.

    but bill is coaching a team, peyton doesn’t have the success with his team especially recently. Go Pats! (maybe Payton should share some advice with his bro 🙂

    Tom brady no doubt is a good player, but peyton manning is a machine. I sometimes wonder if Manning is shouting out the defense, not the offense, thats how well he knows the game. And peyton can win 12 games in a season by just carrying a team with passing with battered down receivers. Tom brady has an aresenal of weapons and a much bettr defense than manning. Both are hall of fame qaurterbacks, personally, manning is better.

  • Huh?

    Which team last won the Super Bowl, the Pats or the Colts?

    Which team last went to the Super Bowl?

    Teams win because they are WINNERS and lose because they are LOOSERS. When WINNERS lose it is because the other team cheated, and when LOOSERS win it is a fluke.
