Its not as though the Colts line has been this huge problem, but Manning & Co. havent exactly ridden their performance. Diem, Lilja, and Saturday have been entrenched, but Johnson, at left tackle, and DeVan, at right guard, are suspect. Problems in the running game further show that this units success is based on Mannings ability to unload the ball quickly and the running game to produce through the threat of the pass.
The Saints line, on the other hand, carries a heavy load, with the offenses penchant for releasing five receivers into the pattern, and an emphasis on throwing deep. That, plus the teams productive running game, give New Orleans the edge. Evans is elite, and Bushrod has been very solid in replacing Jammal Brown.
