Shaun Rogers

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He looks like he's finally starting to get his legs under him. I wish Franklin would follow suit. Looks like the line though is improving every week and could actually be rather good eventually once the dust settles....

Yeah I wasn't very impressed by him in the first 2 games but this game I think we finally played the run pretty well. They might not have had Foster back there but Tate is no slouch.

This would be good time.

Maurice Jones-Drew, DeAngelo Williams, J-Stew, Cam Newton, and Blount are next in line. If we are going to crush these teams, it's got to start with our DL.

I'm worried about Ellis. He's been virtually invisible.The presence of two space eaters beside him was supposed to allow him to create havoc as a 3 tech.

So far, and I know its early, but I'm underwhelmed. Maybe they still need more time to gel.

D Line is playing pretty well. Actually they did a good job against Chicago last weekend. Aside from giving up one big run (43 yards) to Matt Forte, they held him to just 6 rushing yards the rest of the day with no touchdowns on the ground. Did a fairly decent job against Ben Tate, but there's always room for improvement! Maurice Jones Drew will be a very good test for this defense. Shut him down and it's game over.

I'm not trying to be an ass about this. But I'm tired of hearing the term "Time to gel." Were talking about people who has been in the league for a long time. Look at Darren Sproles, he just took off. We could be saying he needs time to gel with the oline in setting up his blocks. I use to say it to about the gelling, but players have been in this system now for how many weeks?
Just trying to say it's time to produce NOW.

Well that's true, but you got to remember that the role that Sproles has is in a more individualized capacity. He catches the ball, watches his blocks, shifts and works around people. I'd still argue that Sproles though will probably get better as the season goes as he'll more naturally have a grasp of the way that certain people with throw their blocks, and better position himself to make a play.

The thing about playing D-Line is that there is so many small things that have to be perfected. You can have the best defensive end in the history of the football with 3 other guys out there that are middle of the pack and that player would probably struggle. He'd still make plays and stuff from time to time, just because of his skill set, but the point I'm trying to make is that on the line, all the guys have to be in sync with each other. On the line, a couple of inches can be the difference between being dominated and dominating.
