Oh, Peyton. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Yep, different team, same shitty run game.

The game totally changed once Moreno was knocked out. Pass protection went to shit, and those two jokers in the backfield couldn't muster more than a 4 yard rush if their lives depended on it. There was one play where Hester was completely destroyed by the DE, which led to a Manning sack. Meanwhile, Ray Rice is busting out a 100+ yard game, and on the other channel you got Kaepernick with almost 200, Gore with over 100, and not really sure what happened with Green Bay (although, they lost too and that could probably get placed on the shoulders of the run game, too).

If Denver wants to make a serious run at the Super Bowl next season, they need to be spending a first round draft pick on a running back next season. Trade up if they have to, the window with Peyton is small.
