Look at the Baltimore game and how Doom got shut out b/c he was blatantly held on every play. This offense would still be deadly with a slightly above average LT.
You didn't watch the line play in the Balt game. Manning took deep drops and was forced to hold the ball for a long time because his WR's were covered. As it was our OL gave up a couple sacks (including a Strip Sack) late with the game on the line.
To think that anyone could go back there and hold up as long as Clady did is insane, you must be watching the ball and not the players.
