Broncos o-lineman says don’t blame Manning for Super Bowl loss


Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a terrible game on Sunday night in Super Bowl XLVIII, as he and the Broncos offense was completely dominated by the Seattle Seahawks and their stellar defense.

Because of the multiple turnovers by Manning during the game, plenty of the blame has been placed in his direction. However, Broncos offensive tackle Orlando Franklin doesn’t want to see Manning taking the blame for the Super Bowl loss because the entire team failed.

“It’s unfortunate that a lot of people are going to try to put it in on ’18′ because he doesn’t deserve that,” Franklin said after the game. “We all had a hand in this loss.”

“They schemed the heck out of us. They did an extremely good job today, getting after guys.”

The Broncos were dominated in every aspect of the game and they could not get anything going from the start.

While Manning would have liked to have played better, the Seahawks were clearly the best team on Sunday night and Manning had nothing to offer.
