We had the 4th most sacks in the NFL with the 21st highest blitz percentage. That was in large part due to Junior's effectiveness, and getting pressure with 4 guys makes things a LOT easier ...

The Saints have a better defense and better coaching. If things continue as they did once Armstead replaced Charlie Brown, they'll have a better running game. Broncos would be worse off. So if the two teams finish the season with similar records and they have similar stats, then yes, Manning deserve...
