He was "okay" with help, but he struggled big time in picking up blitzes (uh-oh) and power rushes. That is an awful situation to have at center...especially one with a pocket passer like Manning.
Most of his one on one matches would be against blizters. In a 3-4 he would have some one an one matches against a NT who are very good at rushing the passer anyway. Against 4-3 teams he would have much fewer one on one match ups.
