Yeah moving down the field and getting field position is worthless.
It is if you don't score. Getting to the redzone and coming away with nothing even if you brought it to the 1 yard line would be like loading the bases with no outs and not scoring a single run.
By the way, Manning has nearly marched the Colts for 4000 of their yards. He could make it work with a lesser RB
im sure peyton would still be great without edge, but he definatley benefits from him being there. defenses respect edge, as well as the passing game, which spreads the D. if they had a weak RB, they wouldnt leave anyone at the line and they would drop back on the recievers constantly. edge keeps them somewhat honest. that offense all depends on each other..edge, peyton, harrison, stokely, wayne and the TE's all produce and keep the D's guessing. they all help each other. im sure peyton "could make it work" without edge, but he would definatley have a harder time doing it that way. i guess we will find out if they dont resign edge this year
