Re: PEAT gats a B-

I don't really get the idea you guys are having about switching Armstead to RT and inserting Peat at LT.

Armstead is by far the more athletic of the two and are currently a top-10 (maybe even top-5) LT in the league. Athletic ability is most important at the LT position since he usually faces the opponents best passrusher and that is precisely why Armstead should continue to play there and Peat should stay on the right and bulk up a little.

Playing Armstead anywhere but LT would be absurd.

This is incredibly biased on my part but I think he's a top 3 tackle in the league at the minute.

Armstead is a monster and should have been in the pro bowl

JP's been pushing that forever even though Armstead continues to climb into elite ranks as a LT. It makes no sense.

Re: PEAT gats a B-

I have come to respect a great OL, more so than a DL. It seems like it takes longer for them to develop and even harder to get them all on the same sheet music. When they do though it's fun to watch...seeing all the blitzes fail, seeing your QB having all day. We really need that with Brees getting old.

Couldn't agree more. You know most successful coaches were not good players. For whatever reason their know how of the position just couldn't translate to physically being able to do it at a high level.

Usually the superstar athlete makes a horrible coach.
