One thing I hadn't thought of regarding the Titans game

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Our offensive line didn't look horrible. Even with Grubbs and Evans out. Defenses don't scheme but they do put emphasis on getting to the QB....

Yep, 3 starters out.

I'm officially naming Lelito a starter.

In the re-focus article, kelemente graded out horribly

the only reason ingram gained yards in the running game is because he kept his legs churning and got extra yards after contact

on the bright side, our offensive line has yet to give up a sack this preseason

Here is a little known fact. Last year Streif graded out in the top 5 of tackles in the NFL.

And we officially no longer have a LT problem. Armstead has it under wraps.

I suppose facing Junior at practice helps a lot

Less than a year, Left Tackle and Center are strengths and we've got concerns over Guard...

It's funny how strengths become weaknesses so quickly. If we can get our guards playing strong again then Drew will have the time to pick apart defenses.

Re: One thing I hadn't thought of regarding the Titans game

I think it is pretty safe to say that last year Sean Payton identified the problem, with the O-line, and when Sean Payton identifies a problem (ESPECIALLY one like this, a problem that makes HIM personally look bad or embarrassed, as a coach) then he usually jumps on it and fixes it the next year. I am looking for a stronger performance from the O line this year, simply because it has his attention now, no question about it. Last year, he noted it in training camp (said it was keeping him awake) and sure enough, it turned out to be a royal pain in the you-know-what for the team, and it cost them certain games, and it made him -- Sean Payton -- look bad. It's not going to be without its bumps in the road, but he will get it fixed this year.

I get what your saying and agree to some extent, but the special teams play has been making us look bad since 2010 and SP has still done nothing about that, how McMahon still has the job I'll never know
