Let's see what John does. Then we will know for sure.
IMO he is not elite he is above average in pass blocking, but I doubt he would have been even that without Manning back there this year.
See that is the real test. How he does without manning.
In 11 he led the league in holding calls, and well the sack level was much higher.
So was it Tebow and Orton that sucked or just your elite OLT?
Those are the questions that John will be looking at as well as how do we afford him when we have 24 other UFA coming do next year.
