JJ Watt is the best defensive player in Football. Saying someone belongs on the bench because they got beat by JJ Watt is like saying somebody belongs on the bench because Lawrence Taylor torched them.
Thankfully, we have Sean Payton, who knows what he is talking about.

It's miss not sir. There are females on this board hence the screen name NonieT. Strief is old, slow and gets injured a lot. Age as caught up to him and he needs to be upgraded. You are welcome to your opinion, however I have mine and it isn't anymore wrong than yours. If Strief is the starting RT tackle he will get Brees killed. The bench is where he belongs. Let him go block that.

He didn't beat Armstead. Reason he went back to the Rt side. He couldn't get past the LT tackle.

Why do people always forget this part?
If Payton thought Peat could beat out Strief, we probably would have drafted a guard, but we didn't.
So, tomorrow let's go back to being great at our jobs, and trust that Payton knows what he is doing at his. (for references, check nfl.comteamstatsoff)

I agree. Strief catches way too much grief. He is an above average player and the definition of a team first kind of guy.

Our worst OL last year was Evans, who played RG, who we cut

Re: I admit I was wrong

How many years in a row has Brees been a top 5 QB in yards with Strief as RT?

When he played RG, yes. Kelemetes play at RG was completely horrendous and during those games that's where most of the pressure came from.

The grief is deserved. I am going to say it again, STRIEF NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. Let is butt adorn the bench.

Bench our 2nd highest rated O-lineman on the team and our 3rd highest rated player?

Why would anyone want to do that? It just doesn't make sense at all.
