5 Saints Players Who Should Be Cut By Week 1

Re: 5 Saints Players Who Should Be Cut By Week 1

Look, I'll be the first to tell you that we definitely need an upgrade at Right Tackle as Streif has admittedly struggled in some big games (e.g. Houston, San Francisco, Seattle) against speed outside edge guys...

So last year we drafted Peat at No. 13 and Peat, as has been subtly suggested he was out-of-shape joining the team, was never able to unseat Strief...

Thus, we got a right tackle who's rated top five at his position by PFF with a near top-10 selection in Peat unable to win the spot, and you dump him?!?

C'mon fellas, don't blame Strief because Peat hasn't stepped up to the plate...

I'm not blaming Peat for Strief's poor play, I'm blaming Strief. I don't care what he was rated, he nearly got Brees killed. He needs to be on the bench as a backup because that is about as good as he is.

And whom should he be a backup to?

Exactly! Hey, I love Strief, 7th round pick, worked his arse off to become a really good right tackle in this league...

Drew is one of the fewest sacked/knocked down quarterbacks in this league, Thanks in part to Zach Strief...

The San Fran player y'all are trying to recollect is Ahmad Brooks - and he's been one of the best, and at times the best, SAM (Strongside) Linebacker in the league...

You can count the games on one hand, maybe two over his career, that Strief's had a bad game; sure they were big games where the challenger's talent is much better...

Is Strief getting old, slower and could use an upgrade - probably, sure...but WHO ARE YOU GOING TO REPLACE HIM WITH?!?

Training camp is coming and plenty of young bucks, including Peat, will have ample opportunity to wrest the right tackle job away from Strief...

But y'all remember this - Zach Strief is a warrior, he's never been a quitter, and he's not going to roll out the carpet for another player just because he's younger...

Someone is going to have to step up and win that job...

Peat! Peat! Peat! And anyone else. Warm the bench. That's where Streif belongs.

Just by looking at the current roster/depth chart, I think Peat will end up at RT. Don't discount changes in coaches (Roushar) & scheme. Again, no one has beat out Zach.

Training camp will tell the story.

Nonie, Peat couldn't win the job last year; what happens if Peat can't outplay Strief again?

Re: 5 Saints Players Who Should Be Cut By Week 1

Charles brown had a string of bad games, he was then benched in favour of someone who couldn't get into the Lineman Stance at the beginning of the season - Terron Armstead

Now whilst Strief hasn't had a string of bad games, every time he has a bad outing Brees ends up getting injured.

He probably won't be cut, but in my opinion he's a couple plays away from being benched in favour of Peat.

So just to be clear, you think the O-line of:

Armstead
Kelemete
Unger
Lelito
Peat

is better than the current proposed starting 5:

Armstead
Kelemete/Lelito
Unger
Peat
Strief
