Congrats

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; You wanted a improved defense. You got it. But look at our poor offense, those playmakers will mean nothng without any oline help. We just couldn't draft McGovern or Alexander could we? Or Tretola or that other razorback? Nope, sadly ...

Or Tretola or that other razorback? Nope, sadly we better hope Carolina does not get a bye. Defense will not be enough to win with our guard play and perhaps Streif.

The offense is in trouble with the defenses we have this year. Payton screwed the pooch here big time. I guess 2017 is when we will contend after all as one has said?

Re: Congrats

I'm more bothered by turnovers. The o line could look completely different 2 1/2 weeks from now.

Re: Congrats

I'm just annoyed we picked Peat when Marcus Peters was still on the board and we needed serious help at CB.

Peat looks completely clueless the entire time, no passion at all.

Re: Congrats

I have unfortunately come to the conclusion that Peat may be a bust. Get him out of the starting line up now, trade him if you can.

Agree that the Saints biggest problem is the turnovers, not securing the ball; but, the Saints do have to add help to the interior line...

Re: Congrats

Does everyone realize Peat is a LT? That's what he played all through college; it's not his fault they keep moving him all over the line...

I'd stick and leave him at the RT spot ahead of Strief and see what happens...

Re: Congrats

Peat is not gonna start at RT. If he's a LT why did they draft him? Because they don't draft for need.

Oh, and that other olineman is Kirkland.

Re: Congrats

I think the only reason they took Peat at all was because Danny Shelton went the pick before and they panicked a bit

Still should have taken Kevin Johnson or if i had my way it would have been Marcus Peters

Re: Congrats

Peat has played every spot on the o line but center.

He's even played two spots in the same game.

The kid is talented. He'll get it together. Have patience guys

Re: Congrats

If Peat is to be RT he must play RG and keep working on his foot work.

I give him 8 games then i will judge.

I will say it again, If Peat is to become a starter it will be in year 3.

Mr Mellow Yellow needs more time.
