OK, now I'm pissed. 8 weeks into the season, and we have 2 young backups starting, one injured veteran starting, and 2 guys as backups who've collectively seen 3 games action in 3 years each.

We say, "Oh, let's get Ivory back, he'll make a difference. We don't need roster spots for offensive linemen, what the hell do they do anyway?"

There've been several serviceable tackles on the open market that have been signed by other teams in the interim.

All people have done on this board is eviscerate the offensive line. Now, I fear for anyone who lines up in the backfield. Why not put pressure by screaming, "HEY GET A BUNCH OF LINEMEN IN CAMP!" rather than piss and moan who's going to get tackled in the backfield.

We'd be wise to bring in some O-line insurance instead of activating a RB that we don't need.

In related news, several Saints fans also damaged their hip flexor watching last weekend's game.

Too bad for Charlie Brown... He must've injured his hip whiffing on a kick as holder Lucy yanked the ball away as he was about to kick it...

Maybe it was bothering him during the game. That might explain why he was slower than a snail in a glue pot getting off the line!
