So does the O-lines sub par play hurt Nicks?
 
Do we pay him the big money he will want?..or go another route? ..I think we should keep him and draft a good tackle in the 2nd..Remember we let Goodwin and Stinch walk...will we do the same here? Here is a link to some that may be available in the offseason

I say keep nicks, it was obvious from the tape that the tackles were the problem, i dont know whats different from 2009 that makes us not run the ball up the middle well enough, but jahri and carl are the best options at the position. Make charles brown and jermon bushrod eat dirt with no pay check for a week, then draft an OT, or get jamaal brown back.

He is part of the problem so I would hope so.

Yep, 2011 cost Nicks a LOT of money.

Walk, we still have Strief also

Yep i agree...all the pundits are saying our o-line is going to cost us down the stretch..Teams will really try and get after Drew...we have to try and run the ball more or were sunk..Drew wont make it through the season..

I say keep him but don't give away the farm to do so. Something absolutely has to give with the o-line. If our running game gets shut down on a weekly basis Drew will do what he had to do last year, feel like he has to do it all and make poor decisions which will lead to more picks. I think the playcalling did us in yesterday. We just got out coached. Hopefully the play of the offense, especially the line, was just a bad day and they will rebound next week.

Well, if the season continues as it has to this point - at least Nicks won't be making the pro bowl. Nicks has definitely had some bad plays during the first part of the season, but I'm finding it hard to blame Nicks (or Evans for that matter) for the problems with the O-line.

The main problem has been with and caused by the tackles, while the constant state of flux with the center position has not helped things out either. Because of that, I'm hoping the Saints are able to sign Nicks to a fairly long contract, since changing the other guard for next year would be another new part to the O-line with - hopefully - at least a new RT.

Bushrod is a matter of his own, but neither Strief or Brown seem to be the answer at the RT, because I don't think Strief was very convincing before he got injured. RT and OLB should be the main focus of next year's draft, and hopefully the sub-par performances of this season will bring Nicks' price down a little for a very affordable contract.

I do not agree. Evans and Nicks are supposed to be our superstars on OL but they have a hard time creating push in the running game. That is unacceptable.
