Ruiz Improvement

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ruiz has looked pretty solid the last couple of games. A bright spot, even. Not sure if that's due to more attention on the left side or not but regardless, he looks much better. Hope it continues....

Re: Ruiz Improvement

I hope it continues too. We have played some weak defenses lately but Ruiz is young and healthy. We really need to let Peat walk this offseason and it would be hard to have to replace both guards. On the upside I don't expect that Peat will receive much interest on the market after being cut, so we might be able to bring Peat back on a vet minimum salary to replace Throckmorton as backup.

I don't know, 76. I have been informed that Ruiz is a bust and will never be anything but a bust. Go figure.

I was hoping that Doug Marone would help our offensive line play better especially on the interior. Ruiz has stepped up after moving from Center to guard in a shortened season. It took him a little time but he looks better each game.

Unfortunately, Peat has not improved his health status or his playing status. I think he will be gone as soon as it is financially possible. We used our second round pick on McCoy and that worked out pretty well. Maybe we could draft a guard in the second round.

Iím wondering/hoping if there is the possibility of a good QB being available early round 2. It seems a fairly deep draft for QBs. One may slip.

Re: Ruiz Improvement

According to PFF counts Ruiz is one of the very best guards in the game right now in pass protection. The numbers don't lie - just 5 pressures on 289 pass-blocking snaps -- 3rd fewest among all guards this year.

Re: Ruiz Improvement



Mebbe he was a slow learner.... like Mark Ingram. Come to think of it, he's coming around faster than Mark Ingram.

Re: Ruiz Improvement

Doug Marrone taught him proper technique and it looks like the game has slowed down for him.

The left side of our line has been a disaster and maybe teams are focusing there instead of Ruiz.

PFF wouldn't account for that so...
