With all the gloating on how well Peyton is playing, and a deserved one at that no doubt, the offensive line, specifically Saturday is not getting it's due accolades. I watched Inside NFL last night with Saturday mic'd up. He is a genuine leader. He was talking to Diem and others about Peyton getting hit too many times after the throw. Then the hits on Peyton stopped. I saw Saturday taking on 2 D-lineman at one point and winning. What a job!
Peyton is sacked only 11 times in 10 games, he would not be healthy as he his without the leadership and mentoring of Jeff (the Rock!) Saturday. Granted O-line have not opened big holes for the RBs until the last game, but they have made sure that the our QB stay in one piece, and actually gain his strength while playing week after week. It is a huge task and accomplishment given the make shift line Jeff had to lead. So let's give the man, the best Center in the game a shout out for job well done. Let's hope Colts can afford to sign him in the offseason. Pollack, and Jamey are good, but they are not Jeff.
