    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rex Ryan will be confronted Saturday night by his No. 1 tormentor -- Peyton Manning. After being dominated by the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback throughout his coaching career, Ryan expects a role reversal in their AFC wild-card matchup.

    "I don't know when I'm going to beat him, but I want it to be Saturday night," the New York Jets' coach said Monday, looking ahead to a rematch of last season's AFC Championship Game. "Is it personal? Yes, it's personal. It's personal against him, Reggie Wayne, all those guys, yeah. (Dwight) Freeney and (Robert) Mathis and those other dudes? Absolutely."

    Quite simply, Manning has owned Ryan. Since 2005, against Ryan-coached defenses with the Baltimore Ravens and Jets, Manning is 5-1, with 12 touchdown passes and only two interceptions.

    The loss deserves an asterisk because it came last December, when Manning was pulled with a third-quarter lead. The Colts wound up losing with the unproven Curtis Painter at quarterback. At the time, the then-undefeated Colts wanted to rest their starters for the playoffs.

    Manning exacted payback in the AFC title game, throwing for 377 yards and three touchdowns in a 30-17 victory over the overmatched Jets. Manning is 2-0 versus Ryan in the postseason, including a win over the Ravens in the 2006 divisional round.

    "You lose a playoff game, it's devastating," Ryan said. "I want to put the shoe on the other foot. I know this team does, too. We want him to experience it this time."

    Ryan took a swipe at Manning's former coach, NBC analyst Tony Dungy, who said Sunday night on the air that blitz-oriented defenses like the Jets and Ravens aren't suited to beating Manning.

    "I don't think you can beat Peyton Manning with a defense that's just trying to fool you," Dungy said.

    Told of Dungy's comments, Ryan responded, "When you get out there [in the media], you've got all the answers, but you don't have to play anymore. I respect everybody's opinions, but the only one I care about is my own."

    Ryan and Dungy had a war of words over the summer, when Dungy criticized Ryan's use of profanity in the HBO reality series, "Hard Knocks." Dungy accepted an invitation from Ryan to visit with him, which occurred in September, at the Jets' facility.

    Considering Dungy was the coach for 4 of those 5 wins against Rex, I'd say he had the answers when he was coaching too.

    Probably not the best choice of words considering his recent bout with the gossip pages...
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    If I were Peyton I'd keep the old shoes and socks on whenever coach Ryan is half-way near him.
