... I know, I was like, "Daayyumm, maybe I've been too hard on Tony ... ", but then I shrugged it off and said, "Nah", .

Teams rush the middle of the Saints O-line so heavy because they know that Brees has problems when the pocket collapses. Pair that with Tackles that are only average so Brees would have to step up.. but nothing to step up.

Since they don`t Blitz and only send 4 they can take away the Screen game as well.

And we had a chance at OC Alex Mack in free agency, who signed for about 1/2 what Jairus Byrd signed for.

Can we get a do over?

Personally I think that Evans and Grubbs would have played better with a decent C manning the middle of the line. This has been the weak spot for quiet some time.

The tackles got some help from Graham and Sproles the last couple of years and that was when we were unpredictable. Now defenses just crash the middle and that`s it.

Agree about Mack
He can opt out after next year so we may get that chance again in 2016
