Terron Armstead To Start at LT

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Raw but agile. Hate that his intro to the role is under these circumstances but we'll know soon just how prepared he is. Could be a head-scratcher......

Oddly enough Brown is our better pass blocking Tackle and lineman. Sean may have let it play out because we've been struggling to get the running game going.

A few obvious exceptions being guys like Reggie Bush or Colston who arrive and just go to work...but other than that, look at Ingram's rookie year....look at Pierre Thomas' early year or two, when he was battling it out with Aaron Stecker for the spot behind Deuce....look at Khiry now... look back at the game logs for rookie years of LOADS of Saints players and you'll see -- with a few exceptions - you will see a LOT of rookies being eased in to the league with, 1 game, 2 games, 3 games on their rookie game log, IF they get any games at all....P-Rob spent a lot of his first year playing special teams, which is where I first noticed he existed...Zach Strief was nowhere near the field for his first couple years....Jenkins only started as a rook because of injuries all over the secondary. Things like that.

Most of the Saints linemen who have played AT ALL as rookies, have been thrown into the fire with no other option but "next man up"....Nicks, Bushrod, filling in for veterans who couldn't go, to name just two.

I think it's just something Payton does. One reason why a lot of people love to label Saints' high draft picks as "busts" is because, a lot of times they don't come in and instantly produce, INSTANTLY on the field upon getting here.
Strief and Nicks at least got on the field on ST, but you are right, Bushrod wasn't even active as a rookie
same as Meachem, and the few disposable early round CB's

I love the counter option. In my experience, a defensive player thought that he'd go unblocked until I swing around and hit him as a Guard or Tackle. Very fulfilling.

Re: Terron Armstead To Start at LT

Hate to say it but I think Armstead struggles mightily in this game.

His inexperience will cause him to get beat on the edge and confused by stunts.

I hope I'm wrong but this could be a long day
