This is what happens when a kid can train for his job full-time. The fact that the Pac 12 is on that quarterly system, screwed him and The Saints last season. With the proper time to train, we could have conceivably won 10 games last year.

Quickness or quick feet are often thrown around as something that is really important for a tackle, and sure it helps, but its not everything you need. The most important part for a tackle, or any o-line player for that matter, is to understand the plays and their nuances. Angles, running lanes, where the ball will be, what the defender will see. By knowing that a good o-line player can put himself in a position to make great plays against somebody that is considered a much better athlete than himself.

Peat is a smart dude and it looks like he is working his tail off. I'd be really happy to see him either at RG or RT this year, it will mean he beat out some other guy to get the job and then we got the best guy on the field.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Peat is an OT, the only reason we're considering him at RG is because we don't have a RG worth a crap
