Brown: Manning/Gase have added wrinkles with more diverse pre-snap looks

Better With Age

The alternative to trying to fool Manning, and therefore risking being caught out of position, is to simply line up and play base defense. But unless a defense has better players than Denver — unlikely against an offense featuring five players who scored 10 or more touchdowns — that’s not a great answer, either. There’s no such thing as a defense without weaknesses, and Manning knows them all.

Line up and play base defense? That's exactly what Seattle does, as they hardly ever disguise their coverages.

On Sunday, the Legion of Boom will take on the same dilemma faced by every Denver opponent this season: how in the world can you cover all of these guys?
