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.

Re: I admit I was wrong

RG was where the line stunk. Evans needed to go. If Peat takes over as RG and Strief holds up (again) for another year I would draft a good RT next draft to groom or take over for Strief. Last season our pass protection and run game suffered from the right side. This season I can see running right not a problem and pass protection should be better also. I think Strief had to help Evans and Kelemete way to much and neither could help him out at all.

Agree. And Drew couldn't step up in the pocket as well as had in previous years. If Drew had a pocket to step up in to, Strief easily rides his man back and around Brees... no sack.

Saints expect Andrus Peat to start, but aren’t sure where | ProFootballTalk

and where are all of the experts who have been telling us for years that Brees can't see over tall linemen?

That's not saying much since the line didn''t come together until the very last part of the season.

Taking a step up was a huge problem for Brees. The right side getting fixed will be huge in the passing and run game. I would like to see big holes for Ingram to get a head of steam going into the second level not to mention Brees having time to throw. I don't worry to much about the O being good it's always our stinking D that gets us beat.

Mr. Peat's true position is TACKLE (Sean has said this a few times). If they choose to utilize him any place else, I'd be bummed because he will be out of position & detain his development as tackle.

After the dust settles, I hope Andrus ends back at the tackle position.
