Re: The O Line

lets face it the saints are rolling the dice once again on the OL. OG can only do so much and staying in house for yet another year will get Drew killed.

They blew it in the draft. I like out 3rd pick but we needed to do more.
also in not signing prospects for the OL from other clubs when the PS was put together.

One day this will all come back to haunt us

Re: The O Line

Ingram is running the same way he's been running since we drafted him in 2011. There has been no improvement both in his ability and the way we use him. I will continue to cheer for him when his number is called, but I would honestly take his touches and feed Thomas and Sproles even more.

He's just not that good.

I agree with this.
In our system, you need receivers, and pass blockers. We needed one guy who
can shut down his opponent, and allow us to hammer someone else.

You know what? I dont sweat holding penalties on pass plays.
I'd rather lose 10 yards on one series one play one game...
... than lose my QB for a year.

Did anyone else notice Drew had more time in the 2nd half?

Re: The O Line

O-line definitely needs some work, that was obvious for most of the game.

I don't agree with that. How could we have done more?
We picked a highly athletic LT to develop for 2014. We had Strief, Brown, Smith, Jones, Armstead and Harris all in camp, and by most reports all but Smith flashed at some point.

We needed defensive help and I have no problem at all with the guys we picked.
