Re: O-Line Play

Good post. You're right - excellent article. It concisely and accurately relays what many have been saying on this board. It uses solid incontestible facts, observations, and examples - very astute observations.

You're killing me, man. Aaron Brooks isn't a 2nd or even a 3rd string quarterback in a league with quarterbacks on rosters by the name of Tavaris Jackson, Brooks Bollinger, Derek Anderson, Tony Banks, Charlie Batch, Kyle Boller, Trent Dilfer, Rex Grossman, Byron Leftwich, Jared Lorentzen, Kyle Orton, Sage Rosenfels, Jeff Smoker, Jim Sorgi, Seneka Wallace etc. etc. etc.

I've left out many names. Shouldn't the great Brooks beat out one of these quarterbacks?

Re: O-Line Play

bye AB he is done here. Enough
The article was right. good find. We need some bigger and faster players at two position. Brown needs to go back to RT. Stinch maybe better at OG. Maybe Haz was right. I can not believe I typed that.
We need to find out can our young OL play or not. Is Allman or future OG or is he, as his college coached said, better at C in the NFL. Is Bushrod able to do LT? That is a start. Oh when then game is out of control take Drew out then rotate the line. Put Palko back there to run for his life or take the pounding if it does not work out. Sorry that is the 3rd string QBs job.

Re: O-Line Play

And this article leads to another point I've made...Why haven't the "Experts" noticed this? The Saints have played two nationally televised games out of their three losses and ESPN has a Poll asking who is responsible for the losses and the O-Line isn't even an option.

I don't watch a lot of Sportscenter, but I watch NFL live almost every day and they have yet as far as I know to point out the O-Line as the major contributor to the Saints' offense problems. That to me is scary since it is so obvious. They still want to talk about Brees and the play calling when it clearly doesn't matter what play is called since Brees won't have time to execute it.

Re: O-Line Play

I remember when Archie Manning was playing with a poor O Line. He was more athletic than Brees. He took the snap and started running for his life, fortunately he threw pretty well on the run. I will say it agin, I am rela glad we don't have to see Hatynesworth again, he is an animal.

I seriously wouldn't call webmasters or jounalist experts.
