Be interesting see what direction they go this Sunday then we can discuss
First of all, you're the one talking about max protect. I'm talking about recognizing the blitz and assigning a back or a TE so there's no free runner at a wounded Manning.
Secondly, nothing "guarantees" Manning stays upright.
It does guarantee, however, that someone doesn't have a clear, unimpeded shot with a full head of steam on the ONLY guy on the team that's irreplaceable.
