I keep hearing how Peyton Manning's O-line is going to keep him clean on superbowl sunday. The only tough competition the broncos have faced are the chiefs, now don't get me wrong Hali and Houston are some beasts off the edge. But they don't have the L.O.B or the versatile inside pass rusher the hawks have and that is Michael Bennett. Bennett's speed creates a chaos in the middle of the O-line knifing threw gaps causing trouble for the guards and center. I believe Bennett will get Manning off his spot and get him to hold on to the ball just a little bit longer or rush his passes. Which is all he has to do becuase Avril and Clemons will be coming off the edge and if they have time i believe they hit Manning often.
Almost all of M. Bennetts sacks came against QB's that were not considered mobile QB's. Peyton will slide in the pocket but he does not scramble so Manning basically will be in the same area every play and that plays to Bennett's style of playing inside.
