Zach is and always was one of the best backup swing OT in the NFL. that is were he belongs. he is yet another player that SP and the saints origination has played cute with on the OL. he is an old school RT that does not fit into todays NFL as a starter.

Difference between a LDE and RDE? none really any more when you are talking the better defenses in the NFL. domino effect of a pass happy NFL. waiting for a 8 point line at the 40 next. just like the manufactured points in NBA with the 3 point line. still the stupidest thing i have ever seen. oppsss back on topic

starting RT have to be just as athletic as LT in book. that is just the way it is now. enter Jack Fisher my favorite target for RT in the draft. RT or LT does not matter. polished and ready to go right out of the box. then move Zach back to his proper role. swing tackle back up and run blocking specialist in jumbo sets

then do what you want with Harris. groom him more cut him whatever. just do not let him be first man off the bench.

there is Nick Becton who is an interesting project also on the roster

Strief is consistently rated as one of the best pass blocking RT's in the league. Any pressure that came from the right side last season probably was due to Jahri Evans trying to play through a torn wrist ligament.

He's one of the better RTs in the entire league and our best lineman for two or three years running.

Goes to show you how once a player is labeled a certain way, how hard it is to shake it no matter what they do. It's just the way it is... in football or in life.

Re: Mark Ingram Re-signs with Saints

I hope we didnt waste much on him. He sucked for 3 years. Had one good year and now we sign him. We have been able to pick RB up off the street consistantly throughout the Payton era. Just hope the money was well spent and he keeps producing like he did last year.

It's not exactly magic. It's releasing players and restructuring contracts for players he over-paid in the first place, to make room to re-sign average players like Ingram. He had a nice season, for him. That isn't saying much. The running game was just as effective spreading the touches between multiple backs. He got the bulk of the carries this time, but the team as a whole did not benefit anything extra for it.

Not saying that's his fault, but I am saying that we didn't need Ingram as much as we need improved pass blocking, and obviously a better defense. In short, I don't really care that we re-signed Ingram. It's not an exorbitant amount of money, it just feels kind of pointless.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Just your opinion or do you have anything to back that statement up?

I haven't read anything stating Streif is that poor in run or pass protection.
