Otah is the new Stewart. Just let him sit every day we're not playing, no need in getting him banged up in practice.

Glad we can have a debate without someone getting bent out of shape. I might be a homer but I think Otah is better in pass protection than given credit for. I also think he's not as injury prone as people make him out to be. J- Stewart misses more practices than anybody as a precaution and but shows up game time. I think the same approach is being taken with Otah

Theres a little difference in a RB who never misses games and a T that constantly does. RB really don't need to practice with the team to maintain consistency but OLman do. The worst thing for a OL is constant change.

His pass blocking isn't bad but it certainly isn't as good as I would like at T but I could live with it if he could stay healthy. And we have a whole year to see if he can. If he keeps missing games we might go after Kalil if he's available. If not it will probably be LB or CB (unless a DT shows up out of nowhere).

This is false dude. His rookie year he started in 12 outta 16 games.

His next year he played in 13 straight until hurting his knee.

Missed a year after 2 knee surgeries and comes back this year and misses 1 out of 4 over a concussion. Dude does not miss as many games as some think including you.

Again the knee injury cost him 19. Probably wouldn't have been that many but cuz of last years debacle they didn't rush him back. 19 of those games were due to an injury that's no longer an issue/not being rushed back in a lost season due to a variety of reasons last year.

Take that out and it's a whole another story. It's only 5 of 33 when you account for that.

Any time someone has a season ending injury it skews there number of missed games, especially when they've only been in the league 3 years.

As a Saints fan, I love Shockey, and because I love him, I do not want him to play Sunday. I do not want him to be like Steve Gleason and become a statistic of the ravishes of football in his post-playing days. Listen to your Mom, Shockey. Football is just a portion of your life. There is more to come. Believe me.

most likely precautionary.

otah is a beast but bell has done a good job filling in for him, so i'm not tremendously concerned.

shockey is an important player but olsen will do just fine as a fill-in, so i'm not tremendously concerned.

hangman has improved our line's play dramatically. if he's out i'll be tremendously concerned.

best post of the thread.
