With his back to Wright, Ogden can tell from watching Okeafor that there is a problem. "I could see he was looking at the quarterback," says Ogden. "He was running straight for him." Ogden lunges at Okeafor and knocks him down just before Okeafor can get his hands on Wright, who feels the heat and takes a step forward. Then, with a clear lane, Wright sprints left and scrambles for a five-yard gain and a first down.
"That's the kind of thing you've got to handle in this job," Ogden says. "You've got to block big guys, little guys, all kinds of guys. You've got to handle the pressure."
In 43 pass plays against Seattle, Ogden allowed no sacks and only one quarterback pressure by Okeafor and Brown. For Ogden it's been a good day. No better, no worse.
