You know like me the truly great can do both. More like oranges and tangerines. There's a little difference, but you have to be really technical about the differences.

But point is, Strief will need more chip block help then Brown this year. Just my opinion.

We don't need truly great, and no one ever suggested Strief was great.

And its not real technical. Typically RT's don't have the quick feet LT's have, and LT's don't have the power RT's have. Its been that way for over 40 years.

That isn't the point I was trying to make. Dude said we need Watson to help Brown. I said he'll need to help Strief more then Brown. And its not as simple as that. The best tackle typically plays left or whichever side is the blindside regardless of strength or footwork.

But footwork usually determines who the best OT is. And since LT is more important than RT, its logical that the best OT on the team is the LT. If not, the team is usually searching for another LT.

Usually. Some players just dont have the quickness to be great passblockers. Some don't have good punch. And some are just stupid. Its not just footwork and strength. It gets deeper.

Re: New Orleans Saints: The Ben Watson Effect

depends on which Ben shows up to play. like i said before at times your going to love him and other times your going out to buy a new TV because you tried to kill him.
I hope he is really hungry and wants to end his career on a high note.

Sean's motivational skills seem top notch. Got my fingers crossed...
