Missed 3 games in '13. I believe 2 were with a concussion. Not sweating that one.

Missed most of 2014 with a leg injury. Typical for an interior lineman. But IIRC, he came back and started the entire playoffs and Superbowl.

Seems ready to go.

Are we really any worse off at Center if he misses a few games?

No worse than a TE who suddenly forgot how to catch footballs

I just wish we had drafted another stud guard.I won't even mention the C word. (Not center)

Okay, I'll say it. I wish we had signed Collins,

Well... Our former backup center is now our starting left guard and we don't really know who the new backup center is. I guess Lelito would slide back to center and Kelemete would start at left guard in that scenario. I'm not worried about Lelito playing center but that left guard spot could cause us some headaches if Unger went down.

I wished we had signed Collins as well. I haven't read much about the Cowboys' pursuit, just that they actually pursued him...

He could have the worst injury of his career and probably still out play what we saw at the center position last year.

Re: Breaking down what Max Unger means for the New Orleans Saints

we traded for an OC that is in the top 3 of any discussion around the league as to who the best center in the NFL is.

i am not worried about this position. back up is set and i am ready for the drop off he comes off the field. LOG is my number one concern

The locals up here are still buzzing about that pick and subsequent signing.
I wish him well though.
