So, we've got supposedly elite guards who own their share of the line. No one else to brag about.
#74 Jermon Bushrod-below average
#73 Jahri Evans-very good
#50 Olin Kreutz-undersized underachiever
#77 Carl Nicks-very good
#71 Charles Brown-penalties are killer
Starting at a weak spot at LT every other player is insignificant.
It's like trying to build a brick wall with every other brick.

Might be the guard play is a result of a weak center and tackle position.

He's referncing old stats. The Saints are currently at 4.2 YPC ranking 17th.

And Zack Strief hasn't played since week 3.

Perhaps a week 3 article with a new date?

I think Bushrod is under rated. He's not a standout but I don't think he's a liability either. He's doing his job pretty well.

I don't agree at all, and I don't care when it was written.

O-line is just average.
One of the best passing games in the league, yes.
To me, a good O-line can run the ball just as effectively as passing the ball.
Not the case with the Saints. We've got the backs to do it, and still not getting it done.
Bring this up again when we start consistently grinding out 100-150 each week.

What happened to Tennant? I thought he was next in line to take over at center?
