I'm so tired about hearing how Peyton Manning would struggle behind our line. No he wouldn't. First off Manning actually has a feel for the pressure unlike Smith who steps into it every time. Second Peyton Manning actually recognizes and dissects blitzes. When you do that defenses become alot more predictable, and the line starts calming down.
Tom Brady has been sacked 14 times this year and 21 times in 2007. When he got injured Cassell got sacked 47 times. You think the line forget how to play that year. Good QB's make their line look alot better than actually is. Manning's line is nothing special. Indy's 31st in rushing this year, and with the exception of Saturday and possibly Pollack it's a make shift line.
I'm not saying our line doesn't need to be addressed because it does, but people need to stop with the crappy QB behind a good line equals success.
