Yes, but both schools are known for defense.

Yes. The O-line was good at times, especially in the run game but gave up way to much pressure in the middle.

Goodwin was a shell of his former self and just should not have been starting. Evans and Grubbs simply aren't worth the money. They should try and replace Strief as a starter but keep him as depth at both tackle spots.

Re: Is it really our offensive line?

I thought Goodwin started the season OK,but after picking up his first I jury he seemed to constantly be niggled by injuries and that's no surprise at his age. I do wonder if that is why Evans and Grubbs struggled. I like what I saw from Lelito but was he kept out the side because he wasn't good enough or was it the worry of injuries and lack of depth at guard that coach kept him on the sidelines as he could slot in anywhere on the interior.

Brees ability to scramble, and try to get rid of the ball (INTs), made the line look better than it was and him worse than he was.

Re: Is it really our offensive line?

You guys must have taken a collective holiday vacation to Colorado in the last few weeks to think that Evans needs to go.

Coaches and Players don't vote you to the Pro Bowl if you're having as bad of a season as you guys claim his was this year. And 1/3 of the votes by fans doesn't carry him to the PB either.

He is the next Saints player after Brees in my estimation to make the HOF (And I don't mean the Saints' HOF) and has a couple good years left in him.

Re: Is it really our offensive line?

As a general point to the first sentence of the original post, YES the Saints are slow...if you flip around the dial and watch any game by any other competitive or good teams around the league, you will see with your own two eyes how SLOW the Saints really are. Cooks and Saunders are probably the only actual FAST people we have on the entire roster! Seattle's defense has DB's and LB's swarming and flying to the ball...look at other teams' special teams kicking and coverage units, they are burning down the field, arriving just as the ball does.....wide receivers for Atlanta run screaming down the field, sprinting themselves open, and the running backs for Green Bay EXPLODE through the line into the second level so fast you can barely see them....the Saints by comparison are old, they look old and slow and kinda tired.
