In addition, the fallacy is that a Max protect line is the answer to help the protect Manning when it was confirmed by JDR and Gruden that the Max Protect gets the QB hit as much as a normal line call in fact Manning was injured in a max protect call that's why I think the Oline needs to chip more not Max protect
In theory I agree with you, but here's where you're wrong:
- On only 5 of 38 passing plays, we have more than our 5 OL pass blocking
- The Chargers brought 5 a LOT more than 38 times.
- A free runner GUARANTEES Peyton AT LEAST gets hit.
We can't have that. A healthy Peyton in January is much more important than 2 or 3 more first downs.
