T Zach Strief

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Didn't know why he was drafted so low on draft day... but man did we hit the jackpot with our two seventh rounders. You can't beat that. I knew Strief could be a decent player in the league but Colston ...

For once, props the the front office.

man payton is just rubbing it in isn't he. I confess he did draft an excellent group. Zach was outstanding. So much waiting to see this group fail. I will never second guess him again.
yeah right.

Broken finger. His hand was wrapped so that only two fingers were showing. Resembled a lobster claw. Didn't appear to hinder his play....

Like I said in another post.......I'm all for starting Strief over Brown. At the bare minimum, we would have less penalties against the offensive line.

I am disqualifying myself from ever negatively commenting on any of Sean Payton's draft picks as this group of rookies has shown me I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.

Then atleast he's not going to get a holding call. The guy played allright but I would like to see him do it on a consistant basis.

i agree with u cuz i was against the Roman as Safety, didn't understand why they pick Marques Colston when had traded w/ NE for a WR...drafting Stief when I was expecting for them too find someone who can run up and down the field for special team..pretty much I thought everyone of our picks was bad except hass, josh lay, Jahri Evans & of course Reggie.

i said it earlier, before the season, that strief will be taking over the right tackle spot.... i figured he'd be starting by now, but he hasn't been healthy but now that he is, it's only a matter of time.... esp. when you see payton chewing stinchcomb's ass after each series.... i think that with brown, faine, evans, and strief to run behind, deuce and bush will have plenty of good years ahead of them....

Na.... Brown is better than Strief.... Rice wasn't 100% that game anyway... but not taking anything away from Strief he did good....
