Armstead Grades????

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think our offense problems has been the inability of the LT to protect Brees long enough, when the LT comes through, you get the result seen today. I am hoping that is something being built on for the post ...

I am hoping that is something being built on for the post season where the Saints can go on a tear, wishful thinking to win 3 straight playoff games on the road......but much more silly things have happened.

Actually the biggest problem is Brees inability to step up in the pocket when the rush is coming around from LT. In the past Brees would just step up to avoid the rush but with DLP being pushed back he can't which makes it look like the main problem is LT when it is interior line fault.

And wasn't Armstead up against a pro-bowl DT on that side?

We're going to let go of Will Smith for sure, that should free up a lot of cap space next year. Well, a decent amount anyway. In Loomis we trust!

Exactly. That is why I say De La Puenta needs to be replaced. You always build your O-Line from the middle out. We have two pro bowl Guards in Grubbs and Evans. We don't have to have a pro bowl Center but we need one who is more effective in the run game and can hold his own in pass blocking. You can always find a good Center in the draft, the position is never really over valued.

Armstead will be able to handle LT get a new Center and we will have a good OLine, you saw that long ball where brees stepped up and bombed it to meachem, yea thats what would happen more often if our center isn't getting beat up

Grubbs is paid WAY too much money to be thrown to his arse like he was this year...

Lelito looks like a great development...

One, maybe two draft picks to the offensive line this year...
