Saints hopeful Andrus Peat's return to RG stabilizes OL

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; As SP said, the key is the side, not the position. Some guys never get the hang of getting out of the stance on the other side....

Re: Saints hopeful Andrus Peat's return to RG stabilizes OL

To understand how big of a change it can be to change stance, try writing with your left hand if you are right handed.

Thats pretty much how big a change it is. But don't worry, you'll get the hang of it, it will just take a little time.

Makes sense... but he DID go to Stanford, right? He should be smart enough to handle this, no?

It's not mental, it's physical.

But still not like trying to write with your other hand for the first time in 25 years. So okay, he's got to learn to use an opposite technique. A smart person can adapt. Maybe's he's not as smart as we'd like him to be.

Lelito has really played poorly this camp ... backup material at best.

Re: Saints hopeful Andrus Peat's return to RG stabilizes OL

clowney owned the left side he made his debut but he will be figured out with a running back helping out, we didn't worry about that in a preseason game. i'm just concerned again how we are still so predictable when ingram is in the game, run, screen, sneak out of backfield five yards down and get plummled, five yards in flat for a couple of yards or usually a dump pass that don't reach him by design. spiller has to be that break up the pattern payton has designed and kill the predictability.

It's time for PEAT to buckle down & focus @ RG. At least he won't be on an island at the tackle spot or a TE in to assist. Not to mention he will have UNGER on his inside. Communication will be key.

Wise decision to stop the shuffling.

Re: Saints hopeful Andrus Peat's return to RG stabilizes OL

I've played left guard then switched to right tackle the following year. It really isn't that difficult. It's just about movement. Hands up, and stepping back with the right foot instead of the left. Of course I didn't play NFL.
