Several of them... the one I have been noticing and watching if Jeff Faine. This guy needs to be benched and/or sent packing.

Jeff Faine was selected to last year's Pro Bowl as an alternate to Olin Kruetz. That goes to show you just how incompetent he really is. I say we might as well just cut him.

According to some around here we should just take the offensive and defensive lines out behind the barn and shoot them.

Re: What To Do About The O-line

People need to seriously take a looking at the play of the offensive line. They are not hitting people not engageing in there assinments. Its Horrible. I saw on 3 different plays where 2 of our O Linemen were standing around watching the play in stead of moving to the ball carrier and help push the pile or SOMETHING.
I particularly am calling out Faine for missing a blocking assigment he just flat out avoided, stepping aside instead of going and knocking the crap out of a DB as our TE caught a screen pass and was tackled. Even if Faine would have engaged in the block that play could have been some big yards (1st Quarter - check it out). Faine was also caught on 2 occasion watching the game instead of being in the game.

That would be a crule way to go...

Instead, how about we let them continue to work on their problems and see if they can turn it around..

Re: What To Do About The O-line

Sorry Euph I know in no way do you agree with my post when I said Dallas won a game with a 53 yd fieldgoal and we should give the line men the credit. When we could win a game with a 53 yd fieldgoal that was missed and somehow the fault should go to our linemen. We lost that game because Payton didnt bring in a replacement for Mare who had a pulled groin and couldnt even kick a 20 yd fg. To point out Faine who missed a block on what would have been our greatest play ever watchin the te run down the field on a screen pass (sarcasm) was not the turnin point in the game. We have no success with the screen pass NONE no matter who we throw to or who is blocking it just doesnt work. The greatest solution to that problem would be just dont friggin run it anymore.

Re: What To Do About The O-line

As long as I can remember, i've never seen the Saints run a good screen pass. They've just never been able to do it.

P.S. I thought our offensive and defensive lines played better this past week. If they continue to improve and get their timing down, I can see a few wins.
