ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver offensive line coach Dave Magazu came in from the cold, took the hand warmers out of his gloves and settled into his chair to talk about his guys.
He said: ''We've been getting killed.''
On the airwaves. On Twitter. In the court of public opinion.
But not really on the football field.
Sure, somebody has to take the blame for Peyton Manning's gimpy right ankle and his recent rash of fumbles, and the O-linemen have bull's-eyes squarely on their chests.
Truth be told, though, Manning's patchwork line has held up pretty well, anchored by prized free agent acquisition Louis Vasquez, the right guard who's given Manning ample space to step into all those throws as he's amassed 3,572 yards passing and 34 touchdowns to go with just six interceptions.
