Re: Could Strief be finished with the Saints

I would have let him be the backup yesterday. But, he was having a great game and looked to bee 100 percent healthy. That being said, the staff rushed Breaux back last year and who really knows about his career now. Props to Peat and Ram. They line up and compete.

And knowing what we have of samples of his character in the past, they should have told the big fella to slow down and not rush it...

He's been a tremendous leader and one of the true, constant bright spots of this team since he was drafted as a 7th round pick...

Looking at his build, bulk vs his the muscular size in his legs, I don't see him coming back at this point of his career to prove anything...

Hope he works hard to get rid of that dead bulk on his body and enjoy a good quality of life and success in his business post-NFL...

Re: Could Strief be finished with the Saints

Let's see what the reports say today. He may have a sprain that can heal over the next few weeks so he can finish 2017 and retire. We should have Armstead back after the bye so Ram can start at RT with Strief coming back later in the season if we make a wildcard berth. I've had both knees reconstructed from football. I can take a misstep after changing a light bulb that's so painful I can't walk for the rest of the day and 3 days later I'm fine.

Ram looks great at RT, it's time. We'll come back from the bye with Armstead and Ramczyk hopefully manning the tackle positions for the next 10+ years.

Iím excited to see what our line looks like when Armstead gets back. Letís give it up to Larry Warford for being our best lineman so far this season. He doesnít get talked about enough.
My thoughts exactly. They could have waited until after the bye. Even if it meant a loss to the dolphins a win against the Lions means a lot more than beating an AFC team.

When he does get healthy, might be the time to return Strief to the tackle-eligible role and let the young pups Armstead/Peat/Ram handle the starting tackle spots.

Well, the two go together when it comes to O-linemen.

Re: Could Strief be finished with the Saints

His knee wasn't bent backwards.

In fact when you watch the replay he appears to do a very good job of lifting his leg as soon as he feels contact vs it getting pinned and getting seriously injured.

My guess is this is a minor issue and he'll be back in two weeks.
