    They did a great job yesterday. It really shows what a really good offensive line you have...when you can not have your best running back in there and you still get over 150 yards rushing by your back up rbs.
    Kudos to Kubiak for keeping Slaton on the team. You needed Slaton yesterday to provide relief to Tate. I was glad Slaton did get some reps. He had some good runs.

    I had the game on DVD...so I went back and watched it again. They just manhandled the Colts defensive front.
    I did find it interesting how many times Schaub rolled out. He definetly had to run some. But with the way the they were running the ball. Everytime he did roll out....the defense was not near at all.

    I remember years where our offensive line was one of our weaknesses...Now it is one of our strengths. I do not see any reason we can not run the ball for 150 yards every game behind a line like that.

    Question: Did the starters play the whole game?
    Brown/Wade/Myers/Brisiel/Winston

    I believe so. They only had 7 active OLs and I know Caldwell didn't play. Butler got on the field but I think it was only on special teams.

    Duane Brown stone walled Freeny on multiple occasions.

    Dude has reached the upper tier of left tackles.

    Yeah, he did a VERY good job yesterday. Winston got beat bad once, but that happens with pass rushers like they have.

    I love how they kept showing highlights of him just manhandling Freeny.
    It was a beautiful thing to watch! I think we all knew that they would eventually get some moves through the line, that's what they excell at, but it was extremely minimal this game.

    Lovin' it!!

    First game where I didn't hear Freeney or Mathis' names called.

    I noticed that too. He was making Freeney his punk.

    Mathis had a sack, but freeney was a ghost. Not even an assisted tackle.

    How come I still thought the sack was a win for us when Matt Schaub didn't fumble the ball? :vincepalm:

    Winston gave up a sack to Mathis, he looked slow on that play. Winston played good but not great yesterday, the rest of the line played great. Brown looks like he might have finally got over the hump with Freeney.

    Being up by a lot of points really helps negate pass rushers. Just another positive of having a D that creates turnovers and helps us get points early.

    I didn't think he looked slow. Mathis put a hell of a move on him. Mathis juked inside and when Winston planted and set to stonewall him, Mathis rolled to his left and blew by Winston to get the sack. Perhaps Winston shouldn't have succumed to the move but it's not like he was blown up. And as has been mentioned. Freeney & Mathis were held to 1 sack between them. Heck, Mario had twice as many alone. :)

    The entire line was fabulous, but special kudos to Dwayne Brown. Man if he plays like that for 15 more games, welcome to Hawaii. Just a great game, both run and pass for Brown. That was the play of a upper tier first rounder yesterday. Can't wait to see more of that type play from him.

    The play of the offensive line was my favorite part of the game. Without their play, Tate doesn't gain 116 yds & 1 TD in his first game as a pro!!!
