Del Rio wants NFL to look at Liuget’s hit on Peyton

liugetpeyton Getty Images

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is expected to be fine after taking a hit to the leg on Sunday. But that doesn’t mean the Broncos are happy about that hit.

Manning expressed his displeasure to the officials immediately following the hit, and Denver interim head coach Jack Del Rio confirmed today that the Broncos have asked the NFL to review the low hit committed by Chargers defensive lineman Corey Liuget.

However, the Broncos may not be happy with the results of that review: Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that a preliminary review of Liuget’s hit indicates that it was within the rules.

Liuget was not flagged for the hit, which came on Manning’s last pass of the game, while the Broncos were nursing a 28-20 lead with less than two minutes to play.

    You can’t hit high and you can’t hit low, what the hell is the guy supposed to do?

    OMG please stop your freaking crying… I thought the Phillip “cry me a” River days had left the AFC West.

  4. patriotsdefense says: Nov 11, 2013 4:28 PM

    The only penalty I saw on that play was Holding on Ramirez against Liuget. Can’t really expect a guy to be able to control his body when an opposing play is mugging him.

  5. repmochief50 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:28 PM

    You mean God (aka Peyton) was wrong, it was a legal hit?

  6. patriotsdefense says: Nov 11, 2013 4:28 PM

    Peyton Manning double standard. Take note T-Sizzle.

  7. riverhorsey says: Nov 11, 2013 4:29 PM

    In that shot the hit looks legit. Looks like he got it a foot or more above the knee.

  8. greymares says: Nov 11, 2013 4:31 PM

    It’s listed in the rulebook chapter 6 article 4:2 “THOU SHALL NOT HIT GOD” or any other of his deciples that take a snap from the center.

  9. chargerdillon says: Nov 11, 2013 4:31 PM

    This coming from one of the dirtiest players in his time, Del Rio is quite the hypocrite.

    Touch a QB anywhere above the stomach you get a flag, so now players go low.

    Unless the QB’s are playing two hand touch, stop crying foul

  10. therealraider says: Nov 11, 2013 4:31 PM

    On a completely unrelated topic.. the Browns raped the Colts in the Richardson deal.

  11. brento1499 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:31 PM

    gotta protect the qb’s that arent athletic enough to protect themselves. meanwhile the vicks and rg3s of the league are left to fend for themselves

  12. jonbeck316 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:33 PM

    And this is why we all hate the baby broncos

  13. yaryers says: Nov 11, 2013 4:33 PM

    That picture is proof right there. He didn’t hit the knee directly. It looks like he hit the upper thigh or the lower buttocks. He was also already lunging at him when Peyton threw it, so I don’t see the problem with the hit.

    Well it looks like my prayers were answered this weekend! Chargers didn’t get blown out and we lost, but it was a close one! Just the way we all like it! Yesssss!!

    Now if we can just almost win/lose this weekend and not get blown out again that would be great!

  17. 7pints says: Nov 11, 2013 4:35 PM

    Jealousy is running rampant from the posters on this one.

  18. n0hopeleft says: Nov 11, 2013 4:36 PM

    I like Peyton Manning, but this has to stop..

    If your offensive lineman throws me to the ground, and I gain my bearings – see that the opposing QB is standing above me – I am diving at whatever I can to bring him down.. Period..

    A blatent shot to the knee versus clawing with the game on the line for a sack are two different things.

  19. jredshoes says: Nov 11, 2013 4:37 PM

    Instead of letting Peyton be touched why don’t we just declare the Broncos winners of the next 7 games.

  20. malvaren18 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:37 PM

    Liuget or whatever this LOOSERS name is, should be suspended for at least 3 games. Trying to take a cheap shot at through greatness, I hope he reads this blog LOOSER

  23. godfther81 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:38 PM

    How much longer til the NFL breaks out the flags and makes the defense count 5 Mississippi’s before rushing the QB?

  24. donnymacjack says: Nov 11, 2013 4:39 PM

    Take a look at the Seattle Atlanta game highlights. On Atlanta’s lone TD drive you will see the exact same hit to Matt Ryan…EXACTLY the same….really…EXACTLY…zero difference. On that play a flag was thrown against Seattle 15 yards for unnecessary roughness. It was a BS call.

    No offense to Peyton, Ryan, or any other QB but if you can’t hit the guy above the shoulders and you can’t hit the guy below the waist, then there needs to be a penalty against the QB everytime they duck. The “window of opportunity” is stupidly small. If you want to protect these guys than make it 2-handed touch for any QB in the pocket.

  25. jdubkc says: Nov 11, 2013 4:39 PM

    Should Read: “Peyton Manning wants Del Rio to ask the NFL to look at Liuget’s hit on Peyton.”

  26. ibreathefootball says: Nov 11, 2013 4:40 PM

    Kaepernick hands off to Gore then gets laid out, legal. Peyton Manning gets tackled at the same time he’s throwing the football, illegal. Come on now, just because he runs a 7.1 forty doesn’t mean you should feel sorry for him.

  27. chaddukesthebuttpirate says: Nov 11, 2013 4:40 PM

    maybe he means he wants the entire NFL to look at the hit because that’s how you now are expected to tackle and hit…

    ( See Brandon Merriweather )

  28. robf2010 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:41 PM

    YA Tittle wants an explanation.

  29. bolthope says: Nov 11, 2013 4:43 PM

    Stop throwing the ball when you are up by 8 if you don’t want to get hit! That hit was clean.

  30. bennyb82 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:43 PM

    I am pretty sure if you tell the NFL to do something more than once, they actually do the opposite. Lets be realistic here…Goodell probably saw it already. If he did not see it, then someone has told him about it. The NFL loves letting everyone know that it can do what it wants so my guess is that the more Denver brings it up, the less likelihood of there being a fine.

  31. slick50ks says: Nov 11, 2013 4:44 PM

    Q: When are the donkeys not crying about everything?

    A: Never.

  32. marcuswelby1 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:44 PM

    There are rules for PM, and there are rules for everyone else. If this was Geno Smith there would be no story here.

  33. stealthjunk says: Nov 11, 2013 4:45 PM

    Go re-watch the tape and turn up the volume instead of spreading misinformation. Manning was NOT complaining about the hit — he was mad because the refs told him he had to leave the game when he went down, even though Denver took a timeout. The refs ultimately got it right and let him stay in the game, but he’s clearly signaling and yelling about how Denver took a timeout and he should be allowed to stay in.

  34. jdubkc says: Nov 11, 2013 4:46 PM

    People in hell want ice water Jack….just because your “acting” as a head coach doesn’t mean you can can cry about everything. We all know your riding. Peyton’s coat tails so you can get a job somewhere

  36. stoney18 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:47 PM

    Sorry, Peyton, Mr. Del Rio, and Bronc’s fans; This was a clean hit. Yeah, it’s gonna HURT when your 37 years-old, have really sore ankles and all the other places that get hit in a violent sport! If you’re on the field and have the ball (or are throwing it, Peyton) ….. WHAM!! He’s a great one and I hope that he’s OK, but the calls should be the same for every QB.

  37. buttfumbles says: Nov 11, 2013 4:48 PM

    We are quickly heading towards putting red jerseys on the QBs during real games. (Well, maybe just on the superstar QBs)

  38. harrisonhits2 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:49 PM

    I hate the constant crying from most of the teams now about hits other teams made, bad calls or missed calls by the refs, other teams having the nerve to actually come to play and winning the game, anything and everything.

  39. thetooloftools says: Nov 11, 2013 4:50 PM

    Del Rio needs to also tell the league Peyton Manning’s dress size.

  40. kingfish1978 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:53 PM

    I saw the hit and its kind of funny that this happened to Peyton. The same thing happened in the game against the redskins from the same guy. I heard someone say he was blocked into Peyton and that was the explanation in the skins game. The same guy just happens to get blocked low into a QB’s knee area in 2 games seems suspicious to me.

  41. thesteelskirt says: Nov 11, 2013 4:55 PM

    Both the colts and the broncos with Manning are taught to hold if they lose leverage so that Peyton does not get touched, but heck with the d-linemen getting chopped block all day right Peyton?????

  42. blingslade says: Nov 11, 2013 4:56 PM

    The game was on the line, in a flurry of activity Manning gets sacked and ends up crying like a little bitch instead of simply closing out the game.

    Yep, I’m seeing another one and done for the Donkeys in Jan.

  43. patsfansknowitall says: Nov 11, 2013 4:56 PM

    This guy would have been banned for life and chased out of the sport if it happened in foxboro to Tom Bieber.

  44. truths4all says: Nov 11, 2013 4:56 PM

    The complaining about Manning’s complaint surely comes from fans whose teams do not have a franchise QB.

    Let’s not be stupid because the NFL is all about making money and its not anywhere about the NFL being a true and real “sport.”

    If you take out your real money makers (the ones who sells the jerseys, tickets, etc.), you take money out of the pockets of the rich men who own NFL teams.

    Make no mistake, the NFL is a business and its not about being a real competitive sport. If it was so, why give the QB more protection than they deserve?

  45. lanman11 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:57 PM

    It looked like he grabbed him just above the knee. It doesn;t matter because he did not hit him hard. He took him down rather gently.

    The bonus here is this sets up the media for “Peyton The Injured Warrior/Hero,” or “Peyton Loses Only Because He Is Injured” angle for this weeks game, and perhaps the entire three game stretch.

    Nobody works the media better than Peyton Manning (Favre was The Master), and nobody laps it up more than these idiots whose jobs depend on having drama spoon fed to them, especial Chris Mortensen. This is why they will not let go of the Miami situation for the rest of the season. They are in the business of selling drama.

  46. Patriot42 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:57 PM

    You can’t hit Manning he is God.

  47. shogunassasin30 says: Nov 11, 2013 4:57 PM

    Broncos have the highest winning percentage in the history of the NFL. Not the Steelers, not the Cowboys etc. Hey Chiefs fan,you’re gonna have to scroll down a little bit. Think about this, the most consistent organization in the history of the NFL. They also have 100 more wins than second place (Cowboys). Basically in every yr throughout time in which football exists, the team that you can pretty much count on most as far as being good, is the Denver Broncos. Chiefs fan – I do look forward to November 17th. It will be a day of reckoning for your pathetic franchise

  48. dt58 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:03 PM

    Hahaha. Love the “double standard” comment from the Patriots fan. “Pot, meet kettle”

    Brady is the biggest whiner in the game. I love seeing a man in his mid 30s throw tantrums like a 5 year old. He’s the definition of double standard and has been for years

  49. masterblaster78 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:04 PM

    Stop the crying. It was a good hit. If he plays football, be prepared to get hit once in a while even if your name is Manning. Geshhhhhhhh get over it.

  50. lanman11 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:05 PM

    If he’s actually hurting, this will be a big game for screen passes and dump offs based on the Chiefs ability to rush the passer. Welker will be a focal point but don’t sleep on Demaryius Thomas. He can take a bubble screen almost as well. If the Chiefs can rush Manning AND play man to man, Mannings accuracy and completion rate should suffer, and there could be some picks to be had.

  51. ltpm3 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:09 PM

    Peyton has been doing this for years and years. He whines to the refs every time a whistle is blown and he is on the wrong end of it. Peyton is so used to getting his way in the NFL, that he just cant believe it when he doesn’t.

  52. granadafan says: Nov 11, 2013 5:11 PM

    Thou shalt not touch Brady or Peyton. The league will make all sorts of new rules.

    I was watching that game when that play happened. I didn’t see any contact with Ryan’s knees at all. I thought the Seattle player rolled into Ryan’s shins. You’re right; a BS call for sure.

    To me, it doesn’t matter who the QB is; there has to be some rule adjustment. It seems as if you can’t hit a QB anywhere except the stomach. What are these defensive players supposed to do?

  54. powpow042 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:14 PM

    OMG…and you wonder why fans cannot stand the Manning family. Peyton…you won…be classy and stop complaining. It was a legal hit…now go home…rest up…act like you’re better than everyone else…and then choke again come playoff time. Cause that’s one move you’ve perfected. Can’t stand this guy.

    ============

    Obviously you have no clue what happened, but thanks for pretending. Manning did not get sacked — he completed a pass to DT for a first down that effectively ended the game. All the jealousy spewing out of some of you fans is becoming comical.

  56. baily67 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:27 PM

    Manning is like Brady, a big babbbbby.

  57. jrbtoo says: Nov 11, 2013 5:28 PM

    While your at it , how about looking at the hundreds of hits Mike Vick has taken the last 2 years that would have drawn flags for Peyton. It was a legal hit quit whining and let them play some football

  58. cospgsmadman says: Nov 11, 2013 5:32 PM

    I bleed orange and blue but what’s a guy supposed to do? The quarterback had the ball so the defense is supposed to tackle him. He didn’t “go after” his knee like the steelers did at Carson Palmer. It was a tackle that Payton happened to get rid of just in time.

  59. buffaloviking says: Nov 11, 2013 5:34 PM

    Play football. Manning can get hit just like anyone else.

  60. mizzousooner says: Nov 11, 2013 5:37 PM

    Peyton *bleeping* Manning will have far bigger problems come this next Sunday.

    Hali, Houston and Poe have plans for Tater Head.

  61. rabidboy says: Nov 11, 2013 5:38 PM

    Well…Del Rio, put your QB in a situation where he may be hit by a DL to “seal the victory”.

    May want to hand it off next time.

  62. fjd10 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:40 PM

    You didn’t hear Favre complaining and they put a bounty on him!

  63. wobblypasses says: Nov 11, 2013 5:43 PM

    Lost in all of this is the fact that Manning did not jump up and yell at the ref about the hit. He was upset that the refs charged Denver an injury timeout, even though the Chargers had called a timeout. You could clearly hear him on tv yelling “They called timeout why are we being charged?”

    ————

    Really? When we fakes going out of bounds and gets hit inbounds and then the refs call a PF which gives the Jets the game – you don’t think all QBs in the Glee Era are a bunch of whinny b-words.

  65. scrotiemcb says: Nov 11, 2013 5:52 PM

    All I can say is: I can’t wait for the Broncos to destroy the Chiefs. It might be more sporting for Denver to give PM a rest and do it with Zac Dysert. (Sorry Brock Oswieler, it still wouldn’t be a fair fight with you in the line up.)

  66. dalcow4 says: Nov 11, 2013 5:54 PM

    Wasn’t Del Rio the big “be a man” guy with the stupid chopping wood and all that? Now he carries water in Peyton Manning’s crying bucket.

    Regardless– the hit was perfectly legal. Liuget’s shoulder was above Peyton’s knee.

  67. jasonculhane says: Nov 11, 2013 5:54 PM

    The hit was legal, but for some reason teams have gotten away with hitting Peyton alot after a throw. You got teams comin out and telling you throughout the week there gonna beat him up and the media ignores it, they’d much rather pay attention to a black/white locker room story that is about as useless as 3 legged horse

  68. vikinganswer says: Nov 11, 2013 5:56 PM

    Don’t want to get your QB hit, RUN THE BALL idiots. Look at the picture, he is well above the knee. Good luck getting money out of Liuget for that one.

    Don’t hit them high…might cause concussions

  72. bullcharger says: Nov 11, 2013 6:27 PM

    That was a shot to the knee on Manning. He’ll be fined. At game speed it looked like a legal hit, so the call makes sense too.

  73. randybutternubs79 says: Nov 11, 2013 6:28 PM

    Keep hating all you fans of less fortunate teams.
    First Manning was complaining about the refs telling to leave the field, but Denver had called timeout, so he didn’t have to by rule.
    Second Del Rio is just asking for clarification from the NFL.
    He should also get clarification on the BS illegal snap penalty that cost Denver a turnover and gave SD a touchdown
    Third, get your facts straight before commenting, you just end up looking stupid, but be my guest

  74. Juan says: Nov 11, 2013 6:32 PM

    You write “Manning expressed his displeasure to the officials immediately following the hit”.

    I suppose it was coyly written to infer Manning was complaining about the hit. Had you bothered to listen to him after the game, he clearly stated he was complaining about Denver being charged with a timeout after the Chargers had already called for one. I guess that’s just too much to ask from a “cub reporter”.

  75. seabreezes51 says: Nov 11, 2013 6:41 PM

  76. jrebar88 says: Nov 11, 2013 6:49 PM

    Only Brady gets the flag for the “Brady Rule” such a joke the NFL is with these calls. Von Miller was penalized and fined for lesser hits last year. Goodell is out to get the Broncos.

  77. melikefootball says: Nov 11, 2013 7:00 PM

    Is the NFL for real you have three QB’s lost yesterday and know one hardly reports on them. Manning gets hit once and the sky is falling. How tired is every fan of this, except in NE and Denver.

  78. jingham2 says: Nov 11, 2013 7:03 PM

    If any of you actually watched the game or listened to PM’s postgame press conference, he never complained about the hit. He was yelling “They took a timeout!” Even the CBS broadcast picked up the audio.

    The ref let Peyton know that since he went down, it was considered an injury timeout and the Chargers were able to retain their timeout.

    As for the hit, it looked fine to me. I was at the game and watched it plenty of times since on replay.

  79. hkdaddyo says: Nov 11, 2013 7:13 PM

    Well, they can’t tackle him at the waist or above for fear that their helmets might make contact with Manning’s. Now Del Rio is complaining because they tackled him below the waist?!?! What is a defense supposed to do, rely on the use of strong language to subdue an offense?

  80. efranklin30 says: Nov 11, 2013 7:15 PM

    This is what kills me about this…legal hit? illegal hit? only the head office will settle that, but when Manning was crippled in pain laying on the ground…the great miracle happened. He miraculously forgot he was in pain, jumped up, ran over to the refs and complained about the time-out. Oh then forgot he was supposed to be hurt and started limping again. His acting is so good from his papa johns commercials that he’s bring his act to a theater near you.

  81. slick50ks says: Nov 11, 2013 7:35 PM

  89. cyraider says: Nov 11, 2013 9:23 PM

    He takes a perfectly legal hit, then gets up and immediately cries about it and the whole world is up in arms. Yet a LB on his team drops a helmet to helmet hit on Terrelle Pryor and nobody says a word. He’s a perfect fit in Denver, he’s exactly how Elway was at the end of his career. I can’t wait for him to retire….

    Can someone please get the story right? Said Manning after the game:

    “I was arguing with the referee over that because I hate they made us take a timeout. I don’t like quarterbacks begging for hits. If they call it, they call it, so I wasn’t arguing about that.”

    Talk about a story with no legs! (Pun intended ha ha…)

    OUCH!!!! Hows that taste? Don’t you just love it when people open their mouths w/o doing the research 1st? As bad as we’ve been the last few years and you STILL have a losing record against us!

    Am i the only Bronco fan that thinks the hit was ok and he didnt intentionally try to hurt Manning? Whats a defensive player to do anymore?

    This coming from one of the dirtiest players in his time, Del Rio is quite the hypocrite.
    **************************************************
    I can’t stand the Donkeys but come on, Del Rio was NOT a dirty player.

    I remember him like it was yesterday, he was a sideline to sideline linebacker who couldn’t keep any weight on because of his non stop motor.

    You completely made this up.

    SMH.

    Jack Del Rio and Co. just need to move on. Anything that would come out of that hit isn’t going to affect the upcoming 3 games, which are the hardest and most important thus far.

    That’s coming from a Broncos fan.

    As soon as I saw the article head I knew the haters would be out in force…. I didn’t think the hit was bad. As a Bronco fan I didn’t want to see the guy crush those ankles…but its part of the game.
    I’m excited to see this coming game. Denver and KC will be there at the end of the year. Even if Brock started. The guy will be starter eventually…Just get PFM healthy.

    Denver should consider starting Dreesen over Thomas to block on games where defenses are 3-4. They could use Thomas on 3rd downs, but Denver’s got the players to help protect, Thomas is obviously a gamebreaker but also a liability on protection
