I agree, IF we are successful at disrupting the pocket inside, if we cant Peyton will step up at the perfect moment and they brush right by him. I myself would like to see avril as much as possihle because if he gets an oppurtunity for a sack he will probably strip the ball. Bennet could make the difference being that we wont be vulnerable if peyton switchs the play at the line. The way he can release from blocks andhis miix of power and speed makes his a great run stopper.
Im going to make a guess, i think bennett will cause either sacks or hits on peyton from the inside.
I really hope we can get some damn pressure. How amazing would it be if we got on Peyton all day long and sacked him 5-7 times.
Peyton is just to keen at sensing pressure, our speed rushers will be useless from the edge if our guys on the inside dont play to the best of their ability. This is gonna be a good one but we got this.
We have them beat in two phases hands down, special teams, and our offense. We are very strong in special teams which is a weakness of theirs especially in normal altitude. With harvin back they are just simply outmatched, with Harvin we are a top 5 scoring offense easy, their defense will beba relief to our guys after playing a succession of top defenses this whole season. That leaves their juagernaut of an offense versus our historic defense. I think we can win that phase as well, but many of the facets of our defensive game have to play great for that to happen starting with the pressure. It all rides on our d line. Fitting if you ask me, since we have brought in a multitude of rushers this year, just for a game like this. If they fail peyton probably has a good day passing, if they succeed it could be a blowout.
But honestly even if our d line cant generate pressure fast enough, and our defense cant tame their offense, i just dont see that being enough to make up for the other two phases plus the turnover battle we win. even if that happens; their offense out does our D, they simply cant win that phase by enough of a margin, we are too good of a defense to let them make up for the turnover differential, our o vs their d, and special teams.
We are too good on d, i dont see them getting the better of us but i dont think it will even matter...
