  • The Rocky Mountain Sigh

    There is a great article over at Football Outsiders about our offense and offensive line in particular. It's too long here to post but you can read it over at http://www.footballoutsiders.com/wor...-mountain-sigh.

    There are a number of good points about the line's mental mistakes that, hopefully, should becoming less frequent.

    We can only hope.

      Do all teams struggle with DL stunts like our do?

      The first gif imo was just real good play by the two DL. The guy who engaged did a great job at getting both OL engaged. Our OL could have made it harder on them but most of that was the DL guy doing the dirty work...that does not get reconized enough by anyone outside former coaches and players imo.

      Besides that tho it seems our OL has been struggling with DL stunts and movement since the McD days.
      Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

        the line is still sucking....But some here pin the offensive struggles straight to manning, they don't understand its a lot more complicated then...mannings old and cant throw over 10 yards

        look at the first gif...manning had no time to do anything without the pressure instantly on him at the goal line

        and all they see is "manning the feinting goat doing what he does best, falling down untouched"

        what do they want him to try and avoid it by going into the endzone....just stand tall in pressure and take the sack risking injury or a fumble into the EZ like a young strong armed qb?

          Those that are whining either never wanted Manning, hated him because he used to clean our Clocks or just want Oz to take over or
          Maybe even more so do not want to pay him his contract.

          Take your pick.

          The guy can effectively lead a team down the field in a two minute drill and score.

          Yet they whine because we are "JUST" winning games. Opposed to beating folks 40+ to 35.

          We are 4-0 have the best D in the league for now and they do not want to give him credit for the wins. But if they lose and it is not his fault they are first to give him. Credit for the loss.

          Some fans seem to be unhappy no matter what happens.
