Default Line protecting Manning at league-leading pace

Line protecting Manning at league-leading pace


By EDDIE PELLS (AP National Writer) | The Associated Press – 17 hours ago


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- It's one thing to block for a quarterback. It's quite another when that quarterback is Peyton Manning, the NFL version of a national treasure.

As soon as the Broncos signed Manning in the offseason, the stakes for the Denver offensive linemen rose considerably. For sure, nobody wants to be the guy who gives up a sack, and in this case, nobody wants to be the guy who gives up the hit that could do serious damage to their quarterback's surgically repaired neck.

''I don't know if you can say it's added pressure,'' offensive line coach Dave Magazu said. ''I think they respect the fact of who we have back there. If their job is to protect you as a quarterback back there, I believe they would put forth their best effort.''

So far, all is going well for Manning and his new line.
