The last two centers left via free agency when they had the chance.

Re: DLP Signs Tender

And after one left, we found another just as good if not even more effective than the previous. Interior lineman aren't that hard to find. Hiddem gems are everywhere and we do a great job finding them.

Re: DLP Signs Tender

Is it really that hard to find and groom centers? Not so much, history dictates. Same might be true for LT in the Saints' system with Drew Brees.

for sure...In reality you only have to be as fast as Drew can release it. I think DLP has done a magnificient job and is getting his due.

Re: DLP Signs Tender

Centers do more than snap and they have to be cerebral, he has to call out o-line adjustments on the line of scrimmage based on how the D lines up. He also identifies the Mike.

Even with Manning at QB, Saturday ran the entire line in Indy.

Re: DLP Signs Tender

And lets not forget that playing between All Pro guards like Evans and Grubbs has without a doubt helped DLP perform the way he has, I doubt he would've been as good lining up to lesser talent.

Which is why he bounced around several teams.

Kromer + All-World OG's would help any OC rate high.

I also wonder if our OG's paid more attention to helping DLP than they did helping our OT's since Drew is so successfull in sensing that outside pressure and likes to step up in the pocket.

If we had a stud OC I wonder if our OG's would pay a bit more attention to outside pressure?

Its hard to evaluate O-linemen individually since they are probably the one unit that plays more as a team than as individuals.
