METAIRIE, La. – Though Jermon Bushrod is making a name for himself as one of the better left tackles in the NFL, you’d likely never know it.

The Saints’ fifth-year man who protects quarterback Drew Brees' blindside isn’t flashy. He’s fairly soft-spoken. And he’s not a self-promoter.

That few people have written about him the past two seasons and that few stations have run stories about him is a good thing, Saints coach Sean Payton said.

“Generally when at left tackle, there’s no new, it’s good news,” he said. “When the cameras are on you, oftentimes it’s because there’s a pressure, a hurry, a sack.”

Bushrod is underrated. Im not saying he's great, but he is a good LT.

I haven't really been paying attention to him this year. I've been focusing on our center and RT. I don't know if Payton is still giving him help with chips or not. I've got to say he's growing on me.

He's a good player.

I have to admit, I was one of the ones who said let him go in free agency, but he has definitely upped his game. He reminds me a lot of Stinchcomb in his prime, not always pretty or textbook, but he gets the job done no matter who lines up across from him.

You mean you didn't see him whiff on 4 out of 5 blocks on the screen to his side of the field? This guy is ridiculously bad. I can't even believe they wrote this article on him. He's a veritable turnstile.

I don't know about the screens but h isn't nearly as bad as you make him out to be.

He went from below average, to average, to just slightly above average in about 2 years.

He still has room to grow obviously, but he's no longer the liability on the line.

We'll probably hear the same thing about Charles Brown in a year or two.

We draft 2-3 year projects and are quick to criticise when they don't look like pro-bowlers in year one. Colston, Evans and Nicks have spoiled us.
