"Don’t blitz him, dumbass."

Let me begin by saying that Michael Silver still isn't the brightest sports writer in the world, but at least he knows who to interview.

We all know the beast of a defensive Brian Urlacher, and he knows Peyton Manning from personal experience. I just found this quote interesting, so I thought I would share.

Just before the Colts’ Peyton Manning threw a fade Reggie Wayne to for Indy’s first touchdown against the Houston Texans, sparking a comeback victory, Urlacher exclaimed, “Don’t blitz him, dumbass.” When I asked him the best way to defend Manning, Urlacher said, “There is none – the guy’s so good, and so aware of what’s going on, that it’s a nightmare. We beat them up [29-13] in last year’s opener, and what we did was we showed blitz every single snap, no matter what defense we were going to play. … I wish we’d been able to do something to stop him in the Super Bowl [a 29-17 Colts victory in February of ’07]. He killed us.”

 

GO COLTS!
