We need these guys to show improvement and cohesion. The risk is always there, but should we play the starters on the OL for most of this final preseason game? I also think a W in this game would be a good thing to earn heading towards week 1. Some of these young guys need to feel that winning feeling in a Saints uniform.

Absolutely. They need every minute of game simulation they can get with each other.

I also think it's too late to move Peat to left guard. Leave him at right guard and put

Kelemete or Landon Turner at left guard and lets roll.

In a word. ......yes. This O-Line needs to jell and they need to do it sooner than later. If one gets injured what's the difference, we still need better players. We can probably get equal players at least from league cuts.

I would not be against it. They need to get better. They need to improve. They need to get cohesion. Injuries are a right, but I think the benefits outweigh them. They should play at least a half.

I just listened to the conf call of SP on another thread and he stated Peat played 70+ snaps last year at LG so he would have more game expirence at LG , I didn't realize he played that much there

That would put Turner at RG , I've asked on several threads but haven't seen a response about Turner having ever played LG , if switching sides is hurting AP I would assume it would also affect Turner

TA AP MU LT SZ would be the lineup I'd like unless we add a player

But I agree with giving them the whole game , though it's pretty late in the game to change again but if it's not working as is it can't hurt

Yeah, I'm good with where ever they put Peat.
But just leave him there.

No, Play them till they take out their 1s and 2s. Not beneficial for them to be playing against 3rd/4th stringers.

Not going to happen anyway. Even if we make a move for a decent veteran guard like, tomorrow, all we're going to see in any year's final preseason game is the rookie free agents and other scrubs.
