Which Saint Guard is Better? Evan vs Nicks

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Most of the rushing yards was gotton behind Nick. The guy is a mauler. I think we may finally have the best finess and power OL in the league. Thought?...

I think the edge goes to Nicks because he is a better run blocker but they are pretty even pass blocking.

Re: Which Saint Guard is Better? Evan vs Nicks

evans has fallen off a bit but i dont think its all his fault.......hes sandwiched between an average RT and a below average center and hes being asked to hold down the right side all by himself right now

nicks is playing great and hes sandwiched between 2 backup tackles(whichever one plays) and that same below average center

i think jahri is a great guard and i think for now, hes still a step above nicks......but nicks will be one of the more dominant guards in the league....ive been saying that since before he started last season

Nicks was a great draft pick. Again, In Sean I Trust.

I have to give the whole OLine credit, they were blowing Buff off the ball in the second half. We averaged more yards per carry than per pass today.

The left side sure seemed to be blowing guys off of the LOS in the 2nd half.

Great game run blocking.

I was think that Evans is better in pass blocking and Nicks is better in run blocking. However, I hope both play at a probowl level for many years with the Saints.

Nicks was the steal of the draft.
