If you’re a left tackle, the more anonymous you are, the better. If you’re doing your job, you never want anyone to say anything. Usually, the only time a left tackle's name is mentioned is when he gets his quarterback demolished. Like a baseball umpire, if no one mentions your name, you’re probably doing your job correctly.

Manning vs. Brady. Belichick vs. Dungy. Cut that meat. Fourth-and-2. “Throw the damn flag.” Willie McGinest stops Edgerrin James. The Manning Face. Mike Vanderjagt.
