Zach Strief tells WWL radio, 'I'll be able to start until somebody beats me out'

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I was watching JJ Watt high lights and his high light was embarrassing Zach Strief. Strief has to know he's in decline. But I like the fact that he's giving it the good fight. He'll probably be a fine backup ...

i love Streif. Total class act and the definition of a team guy. Hes not as bad as people think. A lot of tackles get owned by JJ Watt and Arakpo. It would be different if he was getting beat by some scrubs game in and game out.

Giving up three sacks to a scrub named Jacquies Smith from the Buccaneers in week 2 was that turning point for me.

We can't just accept losses. I don't believe having a defense would have changed the outcome of that game. We can't just lay down on offense because Watt is just that good. If the pats can hang 35 on them then why can't we?

We can't accept losses, but you can't accept Strief not starting because he gave up a sack or two...

If Peat is better than he will be starting soon enough, but he has to prove that he can beat Strief out and not just handed the spot...

Competition is a win/win all around, each pushing each other to be the best they can be...

Exactly. The coaches know a lot more about whos ready and whose not than we do. They wouldnt be playing Streif if anyone else could beat him out. I think its good that they arent forcing Peat to play before he is ready instead of just putting him in because he was a first round pick. Some organizations would have done that.

Strief was our 4th highest ranked offensive player on the team, behind only Armstead, Brees and Hightower (who only played a few games) and the 8th highest rated player on the entire team.

He's nowhere near as bad as some of you claim.

that's twice in two years where Strief got beat to the edge and almost got Brees seriously injured, thanks to him Brees missed the Panthers game this year. I'm really hoping someone beats him out this year before Brees takes a hit that puts him out for multiple games

I'd love to see our #1 pick last year earn the job at RT...

That video is one snap out of 1,096 snaps he took at RT. Every LT in the NFL has bad games. Did you watch the Superbowl?

Do you think 2 bad games should overshadow the other 14?

As far as last year goes, if you didn't like Strief at RT, you damn sure wouldn't have liked the alternative.
