Rex Wants to Hit Manning

Rex Ryan spoke yesterday about the need to get to Peyton Manning.

"You want to get a hit on him. You want to disrupt him some. You want to get him off his spot, but he knows exactly where he's going with the ball.

"I love the guy as a quarterback, but I hate him. When you play him, you have such great admiration and respect for him, but, golly, stay back there, take a hit. It's very frustrating to play against a guy like this."

If there's a good reason for Indianapolis to pull its starters, it might be how good New York's pass rush is. The Colts don't want the best player in football taking too many shots in a game they don't need.
