Unger will be back. There is enough depth to cover on both lines. The two areas where we have improved the most, LB and secondary, have to this point weathered the storm. That's where our overall success will be determined.

Our Left Tackle played more games for us at LT than Armstead last year.

I've caught crap for this heresy, but I wanted to move Armstead in the offseason, Peat to LT, and add either Dan Feeney or Forrest Lamp to Kevin Zeitler...

Great tackle but stays hurt. Trade next year and let our two draft picks step up

Peat can handle it. Turns out picking the Ram instead of DE was good for us.

Re: Armstead out 4 - 6 months (shoulder)

Honestly, this doesn't hurt us at LT because Peat will be fine playing there. It hurts us on the interior because we're going to go through training camp, pre-season and potentially the start of the season with Kelemete and LeRibeus as our starting LG and C respectively. That's pretty weak. When Unger does come back Kelemete will have to totally adjust to a different guy next to him.

According to Josh Alper on PFT..the window is already shutting on our season. Haters gonna hate.

"Peterson can only do so much, though, and the torn labrum suffered by left tackle Terron Armstead has been added to the list of things that could help slam the window shut in New Orleans this season."

We take a few more key injuries and the door might shut... Unger will be back before the season starts, and the O-line will be fine without Terron (he didn't play last year). We have 3 months before the season starts, can only lose so many guys..
