He anticipates very well what a defense is going to throw at him, which makes him even more dangerous, but Colts QB Andrew Luck can predict everything that’s coming. That’s why Bills head coach Rex Ryan will be doing everything in his power to keep him guessing.
“Yeah, we’ll recognize that he runs the whole show,” said Ryan of Luck. “They run a no-huddle, but it’s more of a muddle huddle type. He controls the tempo of it, all that kind of stuff. He’s very good. He draws people offsides. He can do everything. There’s a certain chess match involved and things like that, but at the end of the day it comes down to, we have to get after him too. You can’t let him just sit back there and go 7-on-7 against you, and we won’t.”
With a healthy defense Ryan will have plenty of options to turn to with personnel groupings and play calls.
“Yeah, you play the game with them,” he said. “You change your looks. You change all that kind of stuff. You challenge them mentally. We’ll challenge him physically, too. He’s gonna have to pick himself up occasionally. It’s not necessarily the sacks, but you can’t just let him sit back there. You gotta pressure him, and we’re gonna mix everything we’ve got. So it’s not always pressure; it’s not always coverage; it’s not always this; it’s not always that; it’s gonna be multiple things, playing a real defense.”
