Is it really our offensive line?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Yes it really is the O-Line. Our game begins and ends with offense, and mostly passing. If Drew is on his arse, we're in trouble. We really cant do anything else....

Re: Is it really our offensive line?

i do not care about defenses as bad as ours when i look at the OL. top 10 defenses only. yes the OL needs to be addressed. RT is my first concern.

this is a great year for RT, RT that also can play oG which is an area of concern cap and age wise.

center is still up in the air, i am not ready to say we have top center that can handle the better NT in the NFL. well not just yet

Yes. He was hurried as much as any QB in the league. When you are constantly hurried mistakes happen, interceptions are thrown, bad decisions are made.

Re: Is it really our offensive line?

Brees is one of the best if not the best I've ever seen with pocket awareness and being able to shift around. He doesn't have speed, but you stick a decent O-Line in front of him I think he'd rarely get sacked. This year it looked as though he had constant pressure in his face. He couldn't step up in the pocket and many boneheaded plays were made as a result. There is obviously a drop off on the O-Line. Could Brees be in decline too... I dunno tbh, but I still feel as though we are solid at QB position until I see Brees struggling with a clean pocket.

He had a pretty clean pocket on some of those picks.

People are so quick to want to move on from Drew...

We need a mean, nasty center. Goes back to Kreutz.

Could it also be that Drew as the leader of the team starts to force some things trying to make plays? I know I would when he undoubtedly had no confidence that the defense could force a punt on the next drive...

He had to feel like he needed to score with every possession...

I agree, but we expect the offense to score on most possessions. That's nothing new. Having a bad defense is nothing new. It never used to matter before.
