Watching Romo vs Colts. Guy is untouched on 95% of the pass plays. Damn.

Will Payton finally adress O-line problems in the offseason?

Are the Colts a play off caliber team? Wow, they look awful. But to your point, yes that Cow O line has been dominate pretty much all season long. Death star nation has what it takes in the trenches to make a strong SB push this year.

They did mention how that O/L took a few years of solid 1st/2d round draft choices to assemble ... pays dividends though, .

Everybody talked smacked when they drafted a C in the first round. Look at them now.. Romo looking invicible, whereas Brees has to constantly run for his life.

... 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.
