"Nobody studies like Manning. I know Brady thinks he does. I think there's a little more help from Bill Belichick with Brady than there is with Peyton Manning." Rex Ryan (Jan. 7)

That was Rex Ryan a week ago, trying to prove a point that Peyton Manning-Face Manning is awesome. While in the process Rex was, well, Rex, and found a way to take a jab at the Patriots in the process.

But Rex got us thinking (for once). If Peyton is Best Student, who would win other NFL superlatives?

CUTEST COUPLE: BILLY AND TOMMY

Dont hate; its Massachusetts. And be glad we found a picture where Belichick is sort of smiling.

MOST ATHLETIC: MICHAEL VICK

Hell, running from all those pit bulls and PETA folk aint easy. And its funny; this wasnt the only superlative Mr. Vick won.
MOST LIKELY TO LOOK GOOD IN STRIPES

MOST LIKELY TO TURN A 4-YEAR DEGREE INTO 10 YEARS: BRETT FAVRE

Some guys just dont know when to call it quits.

WITTIEST: CHAD OCHOCINCO

You dont get your own, painful-to-watch TV show unless you have rapier wit.

MOST HONEST: RICKY WILLIAMS

For this quote:

"Usually after a rough season there's a sense of relief when it's over with, but I didn't feel like that. It's the contrast with what they have going on in New England and what we have going on here, and it's a very stark contrast.

"They had less to play for than we did ... and they played harder than any team we played all year, and I just expect that from my team. ... I'm not angry at my teammates. I'm angry at the situation. That's the coaches, myself, teammates, that's everyone. That's the whole environment that we have there, and I'm just frustrated that it's not better.

"It's like we weren't prepared, we didn't show up," he said. "I had a little bit of a sense during the week of practice that we weren't maybe as focused or preparing as well as we needed to."

MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED: CAROLINA PANTHERS

Hey, no ones school superlatives was ever 100 accurate.
