Ryan promises coverages Manning has "never seen before"

Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has no doubt spent nearly every waking hour of the past week watching film of the Jets’ defense. But Jets coach Rex Ryan says that doesn’t mean Manning will be ready for everything Ryan’s defense will throw at him.

As Ryan arrived at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis today, he stopped for a brief interview with NFL Network, and he promised that he has some things up his sleeve that Manning won’t be ready for.

“It’s going to be the combo platter,” Ryan said of his defensive schemes today. “You come after them some, play
some coverages, and then mix some coverages that he’s never seen
before.”

Ryan added that his defense is preparing to see a lot of three-receiver sets, which was the base personnel that the Colts used in their divisional playoff win over the Ravens. Perhaps the Colts’ offense has something in store that Ryan hasn’t seen before.

    If he’s never seen them before how good can they be? Better defensive minds running the 3-4 have tried to attack Manning. Since 2004, few have succeeded.

    The Colts offense ALWAYS has plenty of tricks up their sleeves. I think Mr. Ryan is in for an ugly bag of surprises, today.

    i’m so tired of Ryan’s mouth and even though I’m not a Colts fan, I hope they win 56-0 and keep scoring until the final seconds tick off to shut him up.
    The gig is up dude, no one cares about your mouth. Shut up.

    Something that Ryan has never seen before… a all you can eat buffet he didn’t like. The guy looks at his schemes as a combo platter.

    “Combo Platter” of potato skins, onion rings, chicken wings, chili fries, friend mac and cheese….

  6. Xpensive Wino says: Jan 24, 2010 1:47 PM

    Uh oh. This is a man that obviously knows a thing or two about combo platters!
    In a related matter, something Rex Ryan has never seen is a salad.

    Gee Rex, what prevented you from bringing out the “coverages Manninng has never seen” whenyou were DC in Baltimore? The Ravens have lost 8 straight to Manning & you were the DC for the 1st 6 of those losses!!!

  8. Ravenmaniac says: Jan 24, 2010 1:49 PM

    Someone please shut this blowhard up!!! While you are at it, shut Bart Scott up as well.
    Please send Jim Leohnard back to Baltimore….

    why do i get the feeling Manning is going to throw for 400+ today?

  10. spudz says: Jan 24, 2010 1:52 PM

    I hope Manning spends the entire day either on his back or on the sidelines…

    You did not make the obvious “combo platter” joke. Kudos.

  12. wwwmattcom says: Jan 24, 2010 1:55 PM

    I didn’t really care who was going to win this game, but I am a fan of watching people eat their words. I would like Rex to eat.

  13. ninerfan says: Jan 24, 2010 1:59 PM

    Rex will have crow for dinner with a nice hot cup of STFU!

  14. bearsrule says: Jan 24, 2010 2:05 PM

    Looks like Rex has never seen a combo platter he didn’t like.

  15. Dave The CynicL1 says: Jan 24, 2010 2:06 PM

    Will thre Colt’s win? Probably, will the Jets give them a good fight, probably. But there is no doubt Rex has a mouth that needs to be sown shut. His track record against Manning & the Colts is nothing for him to brag about between the cRavens and the Twits, err, Jets.

    Somebody shove a dozen donut’s in Fatman’s mouth and shut him up will ya ?
    Like Manning will see anything from Ryan that he hasn’t seen before, please.
    Colts 38, Jets 14
    Ryan cries all the way home and in every press conference for the next 2 weeks.

  17. purpleguy says: Jan 24, 2010 2:14 PM

    Yeah, there’s probably a whole bunch of defenses Manning hasn’t seen before.

  18. NewYorkJetsFan says: Jan 24, 2010 2:16 PM

    Jets 20
    Colts 17

  19. JoeSixPack says: Jan 24, 2010 2:18 PM

    Well, seeing as Ryan’s never been able to stop Manning before when he was with the Ravens, it BETTER be something they’ve never seen before.

  20. Xenu_D_Alien says: Jan 24, 2010 2:19 PM

    Rex ‘ll try to have them smothered, covered, chunked, peppered and drowned in sausage gravy.

  21. The Black Cat says: Jan 24, 2010 2:20 PM

    Today: Ryan reveals the man-dime-zone-reverse non-blitz!!! A scheme so brilliant it will be compared as the “Wildcat for the defense” next season. After the game, Manning will say, “Wow, I’ve never seen anything like that before, so I checked to a draw and fortunately it busted for 70 yards and we won.”

    Have the Ravens ever had the DBs RR does now?
    I could see it. Do I think the Jets win though? Hell no. And the Ravens offense was a big part of why the Ravens never beat the Colts. Their D usually held their own, which I assume you realize being that your name suggests that you are a Ravens fan.

    ryan is a cocky mother f’er i hope it blows up in his face

  24. Samuel L. Bronkowitz says: Jan 24, 2010 2:40 PM

    The “coverage” Ryan is referring to is a sweatshirt big enough to cover his fat gut.

  25. Joe C says: Jan 24, 2010 2:44 PM

    Somehow I have a feeling that the Colts are going to pass all over the Jets today…
    …and without the game staying within 3 points, like the Chargers choke job was last week, there’s no way “the Sanchize” is going to win this one.
    Colts 31
    Jets 16

    Rex Ryan is just trying to emulate his old man, with all the talk etc. It almost seems contrived at times, like it’s a family creed to talk out your ass or something. Great, you are going to bring something Manning has never seen, but how the hell do you know it will work?

  27. JDeezy says: Jan 24, 2010 2:54 PM

    Sure Rex. And I have a flavor of Doritos that you’ve yet to taste.

  28. Florider says: Jan 24, 2010 3:20 PM

    Y’all need to kiss Rex’s fat ass.
