Split decision for the best guard the Baltimore Ravens have ever drafted

It’s tough to really try to differentiate as to who the best guard/center the Ravens have ever drafted truly is. We will bend the rules a bit and give you two.   Ben Grubbs The 29th pick out of the 2007 draft was a big success when he was drafted out of Auburn. Grubbs was a big playmaker coming out of college with great technique and a great work ethic. Grubbs played for the Ravens...

Need at center dependent upon The Bridge

The Saints saw solid production from their offensive line in 2013, especially from the three hogs in the middle. Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs were rewarded for their stellar play with Pro Bowl selections, while the most underrated center (perhaps even offensive lineman) in the game continued to turn in excellent performance after excellent performance. Fans of the Saints know just...

Center and guard prospects not on Saints’ radar

Few teams are in a position where they can essentially eliminate one position from their draft board altogether, but that’s exactly where the Saints find themselves when it comes to interior lineman. New Orleans is home to (potentially) the best duo of guards in the game in Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs. Both were pro bowlers in 2013, and neither is in play for free agency this year...

New Orleans Saints: State of the Offensive Line

How many times as Saints Fans, while watching a game, have we said: “C’mon man!”, “Are you kidding me?”, “Block for him!”, “There’s too much pressure on Drew!” ? In my opinion, this has been a difficult year for the Saints Offensive Line. Maybe it’s just because we saw so much improvement in the defense department and tend to focus on Drew and the running game...

Pleasant Surprise at the Pro Bowl

I was all set before the weekend even started for the title of this blog post to be "upon further review, yep the Pro Bowl still sucks". Truth be told: I wanted it to be awful. The game had progressively gotten worse and worse every year, with the effort had all but completely gone by the wayside. Quaterbacks were free to survey the field for as long as necessary and the...

Saints Nation: Saints Send Five Players to 2013 Pro Bowl

The Saints sent five players to the Pro Bowl this year, with some surprises and some no brainers. As far as snubs, you could make a case for Keenan Lewis, Thomas Morstead, Zach Strief and maybe Junior Galette, but unfortunately they missed out. Colston didn't put up the kind of numbers this year to truly merit being in the discussion. The invitees are Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham...

New Orleans Saints: 2013 Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#3)

Last week: 3 (+0) Record: 7-2 After the Saints’ absolute trouncing of the Cowboys, in which they won by 32, despite muffing a punt, missing a field goal, and not recovering an opponent’s onside kick, they now lead the NFL in rate of moving the chains differential. They are moving the chains at an 82% rate, as opposed to 70% for opponents. This makes sense, as the Saints not only...

New Orleans Saints: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#3)

Last week: 4 (+1) The Saints have held all 3 of their opponents this season to 17 or fewer points this season, something they did a total of 3 times last season. Young stars have broken out, especially Cameron Jordan, who is playing like an All-Pro back at his collegiate position of 5-technique defensive end. The offense doesn’t look right yet, but I don’t have big concerns about...

The offense is going to score points. There’s no concern...

Saints Nation: Was Losing Carl Nicks the Reason for Offense Struggling?

I was perusing the PFF grades through the first four weeks of the season today and I came across some interesting numbers. Of all the guards in the NFL, Jahri Evans is currently ranked 5th, Ben Grubbs is currently 8th and Carl Nicks is currently ranked 16th. All things being equal, would I prefer to have kept Nicks? Of course. But his loss, at least so far, isn't as pronounced...
