The O-Line Redemption

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Brees was running around like Archie did back in the day as the ghosts of the 1980 O-line have come back 33 years later to possess the 2013 O-line. OK, not that bad. But, again, my apologies for my original ...

OK, not that bad. But, again, my apologies for my original God-awful theory and misplaced optimism for this current crew.

No. 4 sacks today. 77 frippen yrds rushing ain't gonna cut it. The lack of a run game cost us the Patsies game. It's gonna cost us again.

Strief isn't the problem. I'd rather address C and LT before we look at RT.

Yes, this. The short yardage game and pass protection starts at Center. Going from Faine to Goodwin to BDLP from '06 to now is a pretty good downgrade of talent at the position and it shows. BDLP gets his named called too much in-game, and not for good things either. He's just getting blown up too often on short yardage runs; he just isn't strong enough or talented enough to push even average interior D-lineman off the line of scrimmage. Graded the lowest of all 5 O-lineman this week, too, which isn't shocking at all going against a good D-line.
