Enter Grubbs.......the next annointed savior on the O-line. After seeing the O-line perform in regular season how do ya'll feel about him now?

Re: Ben Grubbs vs. Carl Nicks

Grubbs did a lot better than our OT's.
Grubbs wasn't the problem.
He and Evans graded out the best of our O-line.

Re: Ben Grubbs vs. Carl Nicks

Whole O-line didn't seem like they had gelled. They had a game like this last year (think it was the Rams) and made all the right adjustments. Can't single out Grubbs yesterday.

Re: Ben Grubbs vs. Carl Nicks

Gotta remember one the past year we have totally revamped our line. Stinch gone, De la Puente, new, Nicks gone, who am I missing? A new offensive line takes time to gel.

Lets not blame Grubbs. He wasn't the problem....Bushrod and Strief were.

Re: Ben Grubbs vs. Carl Nicks

First pick in our next draft

Some monster offensive tackle because I'm sick of both of ours

When brees notices the blitz and has to do that WOAH CRAP!! kind of recognition, it always coming from their assigned players

Re: Ben Grubbs vs. Carl Nicks

De la Puente got trucked a few times as well. Which can't happen for Drew to be successful. He can step up or out if the tackles get beat. He can't succeed with pressure in his face. Graham is not a good blocker at all. It was collectively a bad effort overall.

The O-Line was man handled period, they know it, we know it, the entire country knows it . The Skins gave everyone a blue print on how to handle the Saints, Lord knows I miss Payton.

Re: Ben Grubbs vs. Carl Nicks

Bushrod has always been someone that needs to be helped either with a double team or a chip. Streif is solid but unspectacular on a great day and mediocre on most days. I agree, the guards are not the issue and Grubbs was not particularly bad. De La Puente was a practice roster player surrounded by two all-pro's to look decent. He is not a particularly strong part of the line. I'd love to see us go after a top LT next year in the draft.
