Re: New Orleans' offensive line in rare form

This is a good indication of how well this o-line has played so far. Ask any qb that has been knocked out of a game or been sacked 30 times so far this year if this is an important stat and they might say it is. It is not so impressive to allow the fewest sacks that may not tell the whole story but if you allow the fewest sacks and have the most passing attempts I think that speaks for itself.

They're playing over their heads... we need to fix this line this offseason. That stat is very misleading.

Thank you. Agree!

I think part of the problem is that they are decent in one area and suck in another area.
