Not only will the Denver front five run block, they will do so to the tune of over 200 yards rushing.
One of the ways they will do that, to make Alfred Williams happy, is to use Manning on designed quarterback draws.
It’s the Tim Tebow offense, otherwise known as the “read option.”
Since Fox his channeling his inner Kelly, this is the game plan to offset the Cardinals’ blitz-happy defense. They will never expect Manning to run the read option.
Williams said earlier this week that not only is Manning weak, he’s not enough like Phillip Rivers.
Foxy wants to do one better.
Since his offense hasn’t been able to run the ball since Tebow was the Broncos quarterback, they’re going to back to the well to make Big Al happy.
Manning will prove to Williams he can run, that he is tough and rush for over 100 yards in the process. Manning also will just complete two passes on four attempts.
He’ll play like garbage for 58 minutes and then get bailed out by McManus’ 65-yard field goal as time expires.
Then, Big Al will hit the radio on Monday saying Manning isn’t enough like the “Old Peyton Manning.”
