Re: Starting Armstead - Good move?

Didn't Brown completely shut Hardy down the last time we played them?

Apparently the kittens saw something in the loss to the speed goats that they think they can exploit.

Go after Charles Brown: Saints left tackle Charles Brown had a miserable day last week against the Rams and was eventually benched because of it.

Brown had the unenviable task of having to keep defensive end Robert Quinn at bay, and he could not. Quinn, who’s on a short list for Defensive Player of the Year, sacked quarterback Drew Brees twice while going up against Brown, and his pressure on Brees on the Saints’ first play helped cause an interception.

Saints head coach Sean Payton yanked Brown in the third quarter and moved right tackle Zach Strief to the left side, and Payton has not guaranteed Brown will reclaim his spot for Sunday’s game.

It will be up to Greg Hardy to emulate the type of disruption Quinn caused if the Panthers want to be as successful. Hardy – and the rest of the defensive line for that matter – didn’t get much pressure on Brees, and Hardy finished with one tackle, zero sacks and zero quarterback hits going up against Brown.

The Panthers could use a performance from Hardy like the one he gave in Week 3 against the Giants, when he went up against left tackle Will Beatty and used his speed and athleticism to sack Eli Manning three times en route to winning NFC defensive player of the week.

Re: Starting Armstead - Good move?

Why didnt Armstead replace Brown instead of Strief vs the rams? Was he hurt?

Greg Hardy, aside from being a toolbox of a person, is not a small percentage of Robert Quinn talent and skill-wise. I fear Hardy the least of every player on the Panthers D-line.

Re: Starting Armstead - Good move?

Haslett hinted on this back in the day on WWL and it was in to regards of switching out OL. He commented that he never considered it. My thought process is if defensive linemen get tired why not. Why not have Brown and Armstead relieve each other, LT is a critical position. Swap them out and keep them alert and on target. I honestly don't see why this has never been really considered by teams. I think we are at the point now where it should be seriously considered. Swap them, keep them alert and fresh and it gets that much harder on defense to roll on them. Brees gets a formidable fresh LT every couple of plays.

he wasn't active
he has only been active for 4 games
I voted 'No' because
Armstead's next snap will be his FIRST career snap, and bc Brown played well vs Car last time

The fact that there is no tape may be one of his biggest assets going into this game.
