"Let me just say this: yesterday, we did not win the line of scrimmage offensively, period. When I say that, I'm not talking about the backs. We did not win the line of scrimmage offensively, and they did a great job defensively of being more physical than we were up front. They knocked us back into the backfield quite a few times and held us on a third-and-one. We did convert a short-yardage situation, but ultimately when we watch the running game, we're watching what's going on at the line of scrimmage. If we're not winning the line of scrimmage, like I said before, it doesn't matter what back you have, doesn't matter who you're handing the ball to, you're not going to do a whole lot. I'm not taking blame off the backs because they certainly can do a better job of reading certain plays and all the rest of that, but it starts with what we do up front. We know that as an organization. We know that as an offense. I think everybody knows that around the National Football League. Until we win the line of scrimmage, which we've done this year a number of times, you're not going to run the ball very well. That's just the bottom line."

This quote is in 'Potent Quotables' today, but felt it needs special emphasis. Everything the Broncos want to do, and we want them to do, starts here - at the line of scrimmage. It is a huge reason why the Broncos are in the situation they are in right now.
