Re: Saints tackle Zach Strief, still rock-solid heading into 12th year in NFL, happy to take Ryan Ramczyk under his wing

Zach Strief just keeps chugging along and is proof that good things can happen to good guys; he truly inspires, if even for a moment...

Big Country looks to have recovered from a rough 2013; remember when Strief allowed that Ahmad Brooks sack where Brees head nearly came off?

Understandably, he was distracted when his now ex-wife, ex-Saintsation, media hound divorced him and took the house; Strief is better off without her...

Just ask Junior Galette's ex-girlfriend, she whipped out some raw-dogging gossip; or was that really a bitter Junior?

Well now he's received a boost in pay to not only return and mentor Ramczyk which is a great situation for both; and it should offset what the ex got...

Zach also opened a brewery, Port of Orleans Brewing Company, in Uptown at 4100 Tchopitoulas Str; so give the Future Saints Hall of Famer a boost...

After all, what else are you going to do in New Orleans, go sight-seeing monuments? Or just drive around on the unarmed on the Interstate?

I really envy him the "not hurting" part. I've played for almost 18 years and ad 36 my body is like a train-wreck.

Zach is the ultimate pro. Always there to assist a rookie. Think back to those days when he was Stinchcomb's understudy. He developed a ton & put in work over the years. It wouldn't surprise me if he stayed close to the Saints organization once he retires.

Amazing story how he wanted to quit as a rookie because he didn't think he had it in him to be a successful tackle in the NFL; nice subplot re: his father...

Another player we drafted to replace him and he's being the consumate professional. I hope he is able to get through the entire season without injury.

For the Zach Strief haters, I'd like to remind you of some silver lining in that BS loss to Denver last year...
