INDIANAPOLIS -- The plot continues to thicken with Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.
Rex Ryan: 'I made a huge mistake'
"In hindsight, I think it put undue pressure on the team. We lost focus on what we do best. It was obviously a big mistake. I know I'll be better, and I know our guys will be better. I believe that."
Ryan addressed the locker room strife that went on during a disastrous season.
Naturally, he downplayed the issue.
"I don't think it's maybe the way it was portrayed, that we had huge problems," Ryan said. "We had problems with individuals, but we have the right players, and we're going to get it fixed.
"We all feel terrible about the results, how the season ended, but we can't do anything about it. We can only learn from it, and there's going to be lessons well learned. Individually, there are things I can improve in, too. We'll be focused on building a great football team."
Meanwhile, Ryan also didn't rule out the prospects of going after current Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.
So, the speculation surrounding embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez will continue.
"With our organization we will look at everybody," Ryan said. "We will look at every possibility regardless of the position."
