Sticky this! I was shocked at how well he did. I've said for awhile now Rice is vastly overrated at this point in his career, but I still thought Rice would eat Strief's lunch. The knock on Strief is he isn't very fast laterally, and with his fingers hurt, I thought he had no chance.Very pleasant surprise. To tell you the truth, I thought he would do awful.
Time to eat more crow.
I think it's more likely we won't resign Stinchomb (or will resign him at a O-Guard's salary if he wants to stay) and will move Strief to RT. That's what he's ideal for.Nah, I doubt it. Sean Payton said the move of JB to LT was perminant. I would like to see Strief start in place of Nesbit, though.

Yup, and not to mention some smart play-calling on certain down (i.e., rolling Brees away from the potential pressure of Rice).and Strief played with only two fingers on his right hand ) but he got a lot of help from backs and TE, and Rice had a bad shoulder....
