Now I'm not saying OL quality determines anything in today's NFL, but it effects a QB's performance when he has to throw or get sacked after 2 seconds.

The situation Sanchez was in his first two seasons was a young QB's wet dream, while Manning played in a young QB's nightmare.
agreed, though that 2008 OL was decent.
