Terron Armstead will likely be the Saints left tackle this season

With Jermon Bushrod now in Chicago, the Saints need a new starting left tackle for this season. It sounds like the front-runner to take over is rookie Terron Armstead.

A MAGNET WITH NO NAME! Thatís how Coach Sean Payton described the teamís depth chart at left tackle during the offseason. With the departure of free agent left tackle Jermon Bushrod to the Chicago Bears, the Saints must find a replacement from among three candidates: the oft-injured Charles Brown, third-round draft pick Terron Armstead and veteran Jason Smith, a perceived bust after being selected by the St. Louis Rams with the second overall pick in the 2009 draft. My bet is on Armstead before all is said and done.

I canít imagine Smith getting the job and Armstead was pretty impressive for the Saints during their spring workouts.

A little premature, but probably, yes.

Quite premature.

I'm hopeful though.

Game 1, no way.

Game 9, maybe.

Its most likelythat he'll play back-up for a season. He's awfully raw. This isn't like Evans playing guard from day one, or Nicks starting by week 8.

We'll bring him along slowly like we did with Stinchcomb, Strief, Bushrod and Brown.

C'mon Danno! The kid is gonna impress from day one. Coach is gonna give him his due. He's gonna start game 1 as a reward for his hard work and dedication (and because Drew put in a few good words for him).

Well it certainly wouldn't shock me. Especially since Drew put in some good words for him, just like he did with Tyler Lorenzen 2 seasons ago. Oh wait...

I think it's still Brown's job to lose, but with the injury history he has - Armstead will probably end up starting at LT at some point in the season even if he starts off the season behind Brown.

Re: Terron Armstead will likely be the Saints left tackle this season

I want the coaches to Break down Smiths play and see if he's coachable. He could surprise some folks. There is a lot to be said for a change of scenery. Personally, I would like to have an experienced healthy player that doesn't keep Payton up at night playing at LT. That could be Brown(cross fingers) or Smith.
I agree that Armstead is raw and could use a little seasoning before throwing him into the fire. But then again this coaching staff is not afraid of trial by fire.

I'm really big on Smith too. I thought I was the only one. If they want to start Armstead I say try him at RT. We all know how I feel about Strief....

Re: Terron Armstead will likely be the Saints left tackle this season

Im comforatable with Brown starting. We know Brown CAN start. I think he will last 5 or 6 games and then hopefully Armstead will have learned enough to be an actual improvement.
