yeah, patiently waiting for the pass rush to swarm him
If he beats us it's not by patience, it's by getting the ball out quickly
That's been one of my biggest points for the last week and a half. Peyton avoids sacks by getting the ball out quickly, which is great. Peyton is able
the get the ball out quickly because Denver runs a timing based offense that requires their recievers to get a quick release off the line. That's what you have to do when you're a statue QB and Peyton provides the textbook example of that. HOWEVER... Seattle's defense, whether it's 3 deep zone or cover 1, requires our corners to jam (hard) and screw up those timing routes. Those same routes that Peyton depends
on to get the ball out quickly. You know Coach Richard and Coach Quinn know that, so you can be sure that contact within 5 yards is going to be a big part of our gameplan on Sunday.
If Peyton has to sit around and wait for guys to get open, he's going to get hit. When he gets hit he'll either be taking the sack, or throwing the uncatchable ball to salvage the field position, but he will be hit. A lot. PeyPey doesn't like getting hit. It will have an effect on him. I don't expect him to get happy feet or trigger happy, but he won't be a happy camper.
Denver's a pretty potent offense and those recievers are pretty damn good, so I'm sure there will be occasions where their guys get a quick release and PeyPey takes advantage. That will
happen several times on Sunday and I'm prepared to see that happen. But to just arbitrarily throw out that Peyton's going to beat the crap out of Seattle's defense because he's going to be patient or because he's going to get the ball out quickly is a load of crap and whoever says it has clearly not done their homework.
I've been saying this all along; our defense will bend a lot (probably a lot more than people will be comfortable seeing) but it will not
break. We are down right stodgy inside the 20 and we won't let them score 7 points very often. They will be settling for a LOT of field goals. Our offense will need to show up to take advantace and counter those FG's with TD's.
