T.Armestead praised in MMQB

Peter King gushed about rookie tackle and the way he handled Trent Cole I really didn't pay much attention to him and that usually is a good thing for a OL player . I have high hopes for Armstead. Our OL needs tweaking.

Several times Brees didn't trust the pocket (may have something to do with conditioning while Charlie Brown was in the lineup) and would scramble outside the protection...Coach Payton is gonna have to "calm him down with some film to show him the err of his ways..."

Good to see him stepping up.
If we can re - sign Streif and the two guards can stay healthy a top notch center in the draft or st least a real camp competition for the spot and the line looks good.

I'm glad to see him improve. Hope it continues. He looks like Jamaal Brown, who was absolute beast for us.

I believe we'll beat Seattle.

Armstead does remind me a lot of Jammal Brown as a young guy. Not huge, just average size for a left tackle, but really really strong and powerful. Love this kid as the future anchor of the o-line.

Only thing is, Armstead is a lot more athletic than Jammal Brown was. That is a very good thing for the Saints.
