Yeah, I saw it last year...

Last 8 games 2008 = 4.6 yards per carry

First 5 games 2009 = 4.6 yards per carry

Quite honestly in our passing system the Tackles are a lot less important than our guards. I could get into the nuts and bolts of it, but because of Brees and his height the goal for our tackles is to push their defenders out wide and allow brees to step up because of his great peripheral vision.

It is far more important that our outstanding guard tandem win their battles to spread out the DT's and blitzing LB's to keep the passing lanes, vision lanes, and open front pocket for Brees to step up into.

With Brees as a QB our team will need two great guards(which we have) and a above average Center. We can do just fine with good not great tackles. This is why Brown who on another team would not be great, Bushrod, Stinchcomb, and Strief have all done better here than they would anywhere else.

This is also why we were abused by the Titans with Haynesworth. He collapsed the pocket. Any team that can win the interior battle against our guards with their DT's will always be a harder win for us than a great pass rushing DE.

Hip surgery is not a good thing for Brown to have to deal with along with knee surgery if I am correct and may lessen his valve. I think he has been a good player for the Saints but is somewhat overrated.

hes struggled against the lesser competition like the lions

i didnt get to see or hear the giants game but from many accounts he played surprisingly well

brown should still be here next season but if bushrod is progressing that means he is finally starting to learn how to pass block

J, you'd be proud of how Bushrod handled his position. I'd say he's improved with every game and has earned Brees' trust as one of the most important positions on the O line.

As do all LT's against the better LE's in the league. And percentage wise, yes, he may get more help than an established veteran. Partly due to his inexperience and partly because of how opposing defensive coordinators may try to attack him as the possible weak link on the line. But, to me, he has shown no reason why he can't handle the job so far.

Bushrod does get help BUT he was one on one with OSI majority of the time and did a excellent job, I don't think OSI got close to Brees. If Brown is not traded he should move back to his natural position - right tackle. With Stinch and Strief as back up than the line will be pro bowlers for sure

Or trade him for a star DT or LB.

lol i remember a thread kind of like this one but it ended with papz standing over a bloody cantonlegend
