Don't care how may A+ grades Mr. Glass gets, since the Big Mo his over/under per season has been 8 regular season games; Armstead is our most expensive player on a Games Played basis - more than Drew...

And while we were overpaying for Warford - spending that kind of money on a guard (which I still agree with) spend the extra mil Sean on Zeitler, after all it's another man's money and you're a democrat...
Can't do anything about it now. TA is still a Saint and integral piece to our offense's success. We probably beat Dallas with him. I'm no doctor but those pec injuries are extremely serious. A lot of times season ending. If he can come back and can perform, that is a HUGE plus. I hope he sits one more week.

It is most important for Armstead to be as healthy as possible and ready to play by the Divisional Round, assuming we get that bye that I believe we are going to get. Fingers crossed.

Maybe the Saints draft one (LT) in the 2nd round of next season.

Re: Worried about the Oline.

I would start Clapp and Tom next week. With Armstead and Peat capable of going out in a moments notice, they need the experience now. Hopefully, Bushrod will be back and Peat could be the first off the bench if needed.

Re: Worried about the Oline.

Hopefully Unger will be fine. Itís a concussion right? When Armstead is back we will play lights out. He really may be the team MVP. There was a very significant immediate drop off when he went down. Even Brees has looked average. He had a huge impact on the offense this year. Our deficiencies at WR while there werenít nearly as glaring as they are now. Sucks heís only good for 8 games a year. He will be 100% for the playoffs and we will be fine.
Looks bad now but better now than in the playoffs

Re: Worried about the Oline.

I’d like to see Armstead next week.
Unger can rest a week.

Sure, no doubt, Armstead's who we brought to the dance this year and who'll we need in the tournament...

But, it's time to move Ramczyk (who graded extremely well even as a rookie at LT last year) to LT, find a RT which is easier for a rookie or a free agent, to transition...

That will allow us to start to transition some of these players like Mike Thomas to contract extensions...

Re: Worried about the Oline.

We find a way to get the best out of tbe players we have on the O line.

Pit will be a tough game. Both the O and the D need to show up big time
