as far as being skilled at their position, there is no one even close. tom brady, peyton manning are not as good at QB as ryan clady is at LT. 19 games now without a single sack allowed.

agree/disagree?

agree! I loved how Seymour got shut down to the point that he lost his composure! Clash is the man

I liked that "block" he had on the TD run. How'd you like Clady rolling at you at high speed?

Can on O-lineman ever be in contention for MVP?

Best LT in the league after only 19 games, that's for sure.

Good god it hurts agreeing with tsiguy, but I have to agree. Clady is just an absolute phenom. Richard Seymour was reduced to a hair pulling biatch today.

Better start saving now for that contract extension, because it's gonna be one huge MF contract. But one that should gladly be paid.

100% agree!!!! Clady is a beast. Not only is his pass protecting top notch, perhaps the best in the league, but his run blocking has improved vastly since last year! Many of the successful run plays today were a direct result of his efforts. I would also like to mention the other Ryan!!! Might be the best right tackle in the NFL. He is an absolute monster. Chris Kuper is the best guard in the league; very underrated. We have a great young core on the line that plays very well together. Lets keep them together I say.

Flat out dominant.

His run blocking is improving to dominant as well. If Hamilton were bigger/stronger, we could run at will on that side.

That's the next position McD is going to draft for, watch. A dominant LG would make this hands down the best OL in the league and nobody could argue.

But you also thought the broncos would go 0-16 this year so your input really isn't necessary.

There's no LT that comes close to being as dominant as he is right now IMO. Seymour was completely dominated and it showed. ;D

Leave it to Elvis Dumervil to speak up. Dumervil spends all week battling Clady, and on game day he just smiles through somebody else's pain.

"You know one of the reasons I get sacks on Sundays is (Clady). Going against him every day is hell," Dumervil said. "There's no other way to say it. He's athletic, long arms — pretty much the toughest tackle I've ever gone against.

"He's just special. He's going to be on that side for 20 years. He's athletic, he's smart, he has poise — he doesn't get rattled. There's not much you can beat him with."

He's already there and should have been there last year. It was a ****ing joke that Jake Long and that human turnstile from Buffalo got in over him, but that's how it goes.

One of my favorite moments of last year was the Atlanta game when he kicked Jon Abraham's ass so bad that they moved Abraham over to the other side....which Randy Cross (former O-lineman) was more than happy to point out.

Sidenote: Abraham then got his lunch money taken by Ryan Harris too.

I am looking forward to rewatching the game just to focus on the plays leading up to Seymour's meltdown.

Love Clady.

Even when he gets in trouble, his arms are so long and his feet so good that he can still manage to leverage his guy.

The guys with his combination of smarts, physical gifts, toughness, and motor usually go on to be all-generation players. Clady's the best young lineman in the league, and its not as close as people would have you believe.

Is there a better starting OL in the NFL?

Why do you think we took Olsen in the 4th? He's an Iowa guy, played for Kirk Ferentz who was the OL coach for Belichick in Cleveland. Iowa's OL are asked to do a lot of the same things we want from our OL.

Olsen is the first (low cost) stab at getting that stud LG to put next to Clady. If he doesn't look like he's got it coming together by the end of this season then we'll go out and grab another.

yep

Kirk builds his team from the O line out, which makes for good football in the Big Ten

I'm a freak and I rewatch the Broncos game at least once during the week, every week(thank God for DVR) and I just watch the big fella. I am here to tell you that he dominates from the first snap to the last. He never gets beat. It is amazing. By the second quater most defenders quit even trying to rush the QB, most of them feel their chances are better by just hanging back and hoping to tip the ball at the line of scrimmage.

I have not seen a LT this good since Munoz and I sincerely mean that.

What he did as a rookie was truly staggering. Started all 16 games, allowed half a sack and took three penalties the entire season on a team that threw the ball over 600 times.

This was a rookie. That's more impressive to me than Portis or Anderson's rookie years, which were outstanding.

Clady may be the best player that Denver has drafted since Elway, IMO.

A dominant LT is impossible to come by.

its funny jsut watching other teams play. their tackles generally win most plays but occasionally get blown up for a big loss or game changing turn around. not clady, its sick.

A dominant LT is impossible to come by.

The last time the Broncos had one (Zimmerman) it cost them a 1st, 2nd and 6th to get him and that was a lot closer to the end of his career than the beginning. I've always contended that the biggest mistake Shanahan ever made was not getting Willie Roaf when he had the chance.

He wasn't even the first LT taken that year.

True and also not taking the call from Rodney Harrison was another big mistake.

If Clady's career doesn't get derailed by injuries, I believe he'll go down as one of the best LT's in history.

LT is the second-most important position on the offense.

When the QB knows that his blind side is locked up, he can be comfortable making decisions.

Also, Clady's run blocking is getting better and better. A couple of big runs have come off of left tackle. I know that Buckhalter hits that gap btw LT and LG hard...he trusts there to be space there.

Harris, Wiegman, and Kuper are all playing well too. Especially Wiegman.
