Jets are certainly being complimentary this week - this ESPN article has Rex and the Jets ladling out the praise for #7 - excerpt below

"I don't think anything really works with that guy because he makes it up as he goes along," said Jets defensive lineman Trevor Pryce, who played in AFC North showdowns and postseason wars against Roethlisberger when he and Ryan were both with the Baltimore Ravens. Most of those games ended painfully.

"The guy is a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of football player, one of the two, three biggest challenges in this league, because you can't prepare for what he naturally does," Pryce continued. "How do you prepare to tackle a guy as big as a polar bear? How do you prepare for a guy who can flick a ball 50 yards at the drop of a dime? How do you prepare for a guy who can run like he does? How do you prepare for someone who wants to win like he wants to win? … There have been many times I've had two hands wrapped around him, and he just doesn't go down. … He's a genetic freak.":chuckle:
