Um, our offense will never be a problem with Payton and Brees. Worry about something else.

I still don't know why people worry about our offense. Its been elite for a decade.

Yea because of an elite QB who is going to start needing protection more now than ever.

Why? Did something happen in the offseason that we're unaware of?

Brees has aways needs protection to be productive. Brees has been productive up until the last game a few months ago.

So exactly what happened that makes this such an urgent issue?

Yea no problems there on offensive line. Love the depth we have there. You are right what a dumb post I made.

Re: Offensive line?

I get why Dude is concerned. I am personally more of a optimist and I truly feel we will be ok. But the comment about maybe someone will get dropped could very well happen. So lets not panic yet until we need to. Keep the faith!

I agree, even with Dude's concern, but this is the preseason and the starters were on the sideline. Another major factor was that isn't wasn't Drew Brees taking the snaps. He has the ability to make his offensive line look much better.

Also he had the ability to take the team to 10 wins or 0 wins depending on his health. Our starters can keep him clean. Let's hope Unger and Rami are back. I also think we will see a pick up or two from elsewhere. Especially when cuts start coming .

Both valid points. I remember last preseason thinking we were totally screwed with the O line. Remember how terrible they looked? It worked out pretty well though.

Re: Offensive line?

I really need to re-watch the game. I was a bit preoccupied. My son's first album was released around midnight eastern time and it is currently sitting at #3 on the Blues chart on iTunes. Facebook has been blowing up. LOL
