Jets Looking Forward To Facing EJ Manuel

Bills_EJ-Manuel-2013 [1]One week after befuddling Tom Brady, the New York Jets face a less daunting challenge at quarterback — Buffalo Bills rookie EJ Manuel, who has 45,000 fewer passing yards than the New England Patriots’ star.

Jets coach Rex Ryan revealed a confident smile Wednesday when asked if his eyes light up when facing a rookie quarterback.

“Maybe a little bit,” he said. “It’s hard to say, ‘Oh, no.’ But, yeah, because I know he doesn’t have the experience. No rookie has it. … I’d much rather face a rookie quarterback than Tom Brady.”

Ryan’s complex and aggressive defensive scheme has caused a lot of problems for rookies. In four-plus seasons under Ryan, the Jets are 5-1 against rookie starters, the only loss occurring last November to the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson.
