Rex Ryan zings Tom Brady

By Mike Reiss

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Even when the Patriots are on their bye week, they are part of the Jets' mindset. That is one conclusion that can be drawn from Jets coach Rex Ryan's remarks today, which are detailed by Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com.

Ryan said that no quarterback studies more than Peyton Manning, even if Tom Brady thinks he does. Ryan shared his opinion that Brady gets more help from the coaching staff than Manning does.

Hmmm ... interesting insight from a coach in another building.

If the Jets defeat the Colts, setting up a playoff visit to New England, this will surely become a hot topic in New England.

Brady has proven to have a Rodney Harrison-type ability to turn words into motivation. Just ask Marty Schottenheimer.
