Default Saturday to Packers

@AdamSchefter
And now, former Colts C Jeff Saturday officially has agreed to a deal with the Green Bay Packers. Nice Packers pickup.

Here is to hoping Walton and Beadles can keep Manning upright

I wonder how important the center's line calls are to the offense and how complicated it is? You would think if it were absolutely essential, they would have made him an offer he couldnt refuse.

It's okay, signing Manning will have those free agents lined up to play for us.

Welcome to the worst pass-blocking, and lowest paid Offensive Line in the NFL, Peyton Manning.

No, see, the offensive line is actually good. See, when you pass a lot, it's okay to give up 40 sacks in a season, because it's just a percentage of total plays. If your quarterback takes 25 sacks in 16 games on a run first team, he's actually getting hit more than someone who takes 40 sacks in 16 games on a pass first team.

So, our offensive line is good. We're going to pass a lot, so if Manning only gets sacked 40 times, it will be like he only got sacked 20 times.

It happens ... I liked the idea of Peyton's center following him, but it's not the end of the world by any means.

Best Player: In something of a surprise, it graded out as Orlando Franklin (-9.1). Denver’s best run blocker, Franklin had some issues in pass protection but improved as the season went on.

Worst Player: You kind of expect J.D. Walton (-28.9) to start getting better, but the man who finished second-from-the-bottom in Pass Blocking Efficiency ranking for centers had an even worse sophomore year. This is a crucial third year coming up for him.

Sorry...not the "worst", but damn close. If we would have passed the ball more last year, I'm sure it would have been the worst.

Yep, and hope to god Ryan Harris is miraculously healed (or draft Mike Adams). They better hope they can sign Jacob Tamme, because they won't have the luxury of drafting an offensive weapon in the 1st round.

This team is so full of holes/bad players, its pathetic.

Nonsense.

If manning holds the ball for 5 plus seconds and has anticipation problems and inexperience, then you might be right.

There is a reason out LT, who led the league in holding penalties, still made the pro bowl.


Further still...if you think things through...we won't see 9 in the box every play either...or we'll beat teams by 100 points.
