something to consider

Re: something to consider

Wasn't meant to offend Papz.....Strief has performed better in the game's he's started at LT than Brown. I think Brown is a great RT, but he's either getting beat or making bone head penalties at LT. Like others have said....this coaching staff is very reluctant to change after the season starts. Case in point #1: Why was Bullocks starting until damn near mid-season? Case #2: Why did Pierre Thomas not get his shot until the end of the season? We can debate this all day, but I'll still say Brown is an over-rated LT & if we can get a shut down CB for him......pull the trigger on the deal!!!!!!!! There's a guy on the bench who can fill Brown's shoes (better in my opinion). Who's gonna' stop the pass that's been killing us? Gay? David? Thomas? I'd rather get someone who can handle their own in man to man. The guys we have at CB get beat like a pinata on Cinqo De Mayo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

None was taken gandhi1007. We have a difference in opinion... nothing wrong with that.

ARE you *&^%$^)*&*^$#$ NUTS Drew Brees is the heart and soul of this team.
You do not trade his main protector,especially a Pro Bowl player like J.Brown.Ashmoungha is good but he is not worth J.Brown no way . Teams build there offense around LTs

Re: something to consider

OK I have been thinking about it. Is there something you are trying to say? Browns knees not all that good? Are the backups ready to step up?
Now a straight up trade for Brown leaves me a little uneasy without answers to these questions.
He is not a LT. But he is without a doubt a great RT.
How about Stinch instead and a lower pick?
Then if Brown is to go because of any of the questions above are answered with a yes, then get picks for him.We should come out ahead of the game that way.

Re: something to consider

I'm sorry....I just can't help but remember DeMarcus Ware using Brown every single play. Or....then there's Julius Peppers man-handling him. I understand these are upper echelon DE's I've named, but your "ALL-PRO" LT (as some of you have called Brown) should be able to at least hold his own against them on a few plays. Right? He didn't. He got used like a $2 hooker for an entire ball game... damn near every time we played them. He's led the offensive line in penalties for a few years as well (most in crucial situations). Tell me again what makes Brown so good at LT?

I agree that Goodwin, when he was filling in for Faine, out perforned him. That's why he's now a buc. We need a CB , no doubt, but taking any chance on protecting Drew is not worth it.

Re: something to consider

Im gonna have to go with papz and triman on this one. This team lives and dies with drew. You take away from his protection and hes gonna be rushed and thatll just cause more INTs and those INTs were the differences in many games we shouldve won last year.

plus i dont see the point of messing with our Oline unless its necessary, theyve been pretty damn solid the last two years.
