Saints: Who could stay and who could go - Offensive Line

Saints: Who could stay and who could go - Offensive Line | wwltv.com New Orleans

Offensive Line
Tackles: Jermon Bushrod, Zach Strief, Pat McQuistan, Charles Brown
Guards: Carl Nicks, Jahri Evans, Eric Olsen
Centers: Brian de la Puente, Matt Tennant

Bushrod: For the first time in his career, Jermon Bushrod earned a Pro Bowl berth. The key for him is following it up with another standout season. He signed a two-year contract prior to 2011 and will be in a contract year. Bushrod shut down tons of talent this past season and, if we were the Saints, wed figure out a way to extend him now because his negotiations could get messy. Bushrod returns in 2012.

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

Not that big on giving Bushrod a big contract. Elite DE's treated him like a $2 hooker for the last 3 years. Most of Brees' hurries came from his side. And.....sorry to say this, but Bushrod rode the "Brees" to the Pro Bowl much like a previous LT we once had. Just saying.....I'd much rather put that money in tha hands of Carl Nicks, Brian De La Puente, & Zach Strief.

While I mostly agree with this I don't think Bushrod was all that bad. He certainly wasn't pro-bowl quality but he held his own in several games.

We could do worse than Bushrod, and we'd have to pay a ton of money to do better.

I'd say he's a B-minus LT in this league.

While I agree that Bushrod did a good job this past season - much better than I expected him to do - he would be exposed if the Saints were to lose Nicks, because having that type of a guard playing next to you will make any tackle appear better than what the reality is.

Then Charles Brown must be one gawd-awful Tackle.

He probably is and brittle as a sugar sculpture.


BTW, I just noticed that Chase Daniel is also a RFA. I wonder what type of a deal they are going to offer him?

Prolly vet minimum, and bring in some competition as well.

Charles Brown, going into his third season, should be seen by an urologist and examined for a pair...

Good Gosh, scouts claimed you have 1 Round Talent, WTH?
