Ryan Clady

Ryan Clady did it.

He probably wasn’t trying to do it. He probably wasn’t even aware of it. No, it’s much more likely that the 23-year-old Clady saw September 27, 2009 as just another Sunday — another instance of the task at hand, and another job to do.

If he could have towed a lunch pail along with him, he probably would have. “Just doing my job,” Clady probably thought.

On this Sunday, Clady was to face recent Oakland Raiders trade trophy Richard Seymour. Like any other Sunday, Clady rendered the opposing defensive lineman helpless and hopeless. He shut Seymour down, and then shut him up.

In doing so, not only did Clady exorcise the only demon of his young career (a half-sack surrendered to Seymour in 2008), Clady made his mark in the NFL record books. The second-year player is now tied with former Jets tackle Ryan Young for the most games to start an NFL career without giving up a full sack.

That’s 19 straight games of pure domination at his position. Clady has never suffered a misstep from his first snap in the National Football League to Kyle Orton‘s coffin-nailing kneel down late Sunday afternoon.

A Mile High Salute to Ryan Clady, a pleasure to watch, and bearer of the proud tradition of Rocky Mountain linemen for years to come.

    Dumervil credits his hot streak to going up against Ryan Clady in practice. “Going against him every day is hell,” Dumervil said. “There's no other way to say it. He's just special. He's going to be on that side for 20 years. He's athletic, he's smart, he has poise — he doesn't get rattled.”

    It's easy to avoid giving up a sack when you're busy with other things– like, say, running down the field in front of your HB because you flattened a few people behind you. He'll keep that streak going indefinitely if he can keep helping us run the ball as well as we did. I think that's as important and as impressive as his pass protection. Dude is a beast.

    Congrats to Clady! Definitely well deserved! He's the best Tackle in the NFL IMO. One small thing though, isn't that 19 games started with only 0.5 sack allowed? 16 his rookie campaign and now 3 so far this year.

    Yeah, thanks…

    Great post Kyle! Seymor really showed his frustration on that PF penalty. And that was a proud moment for Clady. Second year and all he has done is dominate.

  • dbroncos

    Excellent story. I am so glad we drafted him. Hearing non-Bronco fans say things like “he is the Ogden of this generation” puts a smile on my face.
