Word from inside is that our coaches were down on one of our guard's performance... Warford's.

At this point though, our opinions are pretty much pointless. Peat is signed for 5 years.
So regardless how any of us feel, he's a Saint and not only that, he's one of our core players going forward.

My thinking says we should really get behind him and hope for healthy and improvement for him and Wardaddy.
A couple of years ago, Peat was looking great. That was also his healthiest stretch. Also a couple of years ago,
we were all excited with the beast guard we signed in free agency. Both have the potential to be really really good.
If they both reach that potential this year, then we will have one hell of an OL. Our RBs will have gaping tunnels to
run through and Drew can sit back, pick defenses apart, and read a book or nit a sweater in the pocket.
Interesting. I’d have judged them the other way around. Although I think Larry is just getting worn out and losing tread now quickly.

And you’re spot on, it matters not what we think or want. Also even if I think the player is terrible I always pull for them to do well and be healthy no matter what. Can’t imagine any fan doing otherwise.

If healthy I do think Peat is a nice run blocker and can pull and such. His weakness to me is on pass pro.

Always remember that an OL is the sum of it's parts. Nobody has 5 elite linemen... There's not enough elite OLmen on earth.
And as the saying goes, a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link. Our O-line has been arguably the best in the NFL over
the past few years. If Peat is the weakest link, then he pretty much has to be darn good for our Oline to be one of the best over
that period.

Respectfully disagree wholeheartedly about us having the best or even near the best unit in the league. Especially if counting the playoffs.
We get manhandled on the line in the playoffs.
I do agree about sum of its parts and weakest link etc.

Injuries, worn down ...whatever. I'm not in the camp of LB, CB, WR with our #24 if one of the top 4 rated OL drops in

Yep. I'm hoping one of the top OL drops nicely into our laps at pick 24. It's a long season for the trenches. ( Hopefully considering what's going on )
