Possible, but unlikely.
There was he FB on the outside release to contain the edge.
There were also a couple of unblocked receivers (besides Blackmon) in the middle of the field.
There were at least two unengaged O-linemen on that side.
There was the RB (also in the middle of the field after his blocking assignment).
And there was Henne.
I don't think Manning is going to go far.
BTW, the All-22 Film is available early this week on Game Rewind.
