Saints burn to the ground in second half in 39-17 loss at Philadelphia

The Saints came up with 2 interceptions in their own end zone (yes really!!) and two turnovers on downs to nurse a flimsy 7-0 lead, before going down 10-7 at halftime. They would then put a comprehensive drive together to make the score 10-10 in the 3rd quarter. It was a competitive game, one right there for the taking. Then, complete implosion. The offensive line in particular was...

New Orleans Saints Positional Roster Preview: Offensive Line

Over the past few months we have went over each position on the defensive side of the ball. Covering the defensive players in this series, after the pathetic 2014 season, was a very rough and emotional part of the series. Things should start to be a little more of a euphoric feeling while moving into the offensive side. Although the Saints didn’t have an impressive season, what...

Intel on Mike McGlynn

Here’s a little tidbit I got from Arrowhead Pride on McGlynn via twitter. If Lelito or Kelemete (or both) don’t beat him out, that might not be a good thing.   @SaintsNationBlg rough year w/ the Chiefs. He was signed like a week before the season so it was a tough situation — Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) May 22, 2015

Saints sign G Mike McGlynn, release WR Andy Tanner

Tanner was never making the team and McGlynn will compete with Lelito and Kelemete for a starting spot. He’s been a starter in the NFL the last five seasons. This move is a no brainer. But read my tweet below. Yikes. Mike McGlynn, per @PFF, was rated dead last of 78 qualifying guards last year with a -32.6 grade.

Camp Preview: Washington Redskins are going big on the offensive line

With each passing day, the Redskins offseason moves sink in a little more. In all, the team did well to address their special-teams unit, make a couple splashes at receiver, tend to gaps at linebacker and in the secondary and fortify a suspect pass rush. More than anything, though, they bolstered their offensive line. After a changing of the guard from Mike Shanahan to Jay Gruden...

Saints waiting on a move from Brian de la Puente ☆

I’m surprised that Brian de la Puente has made it this far into free agency. Evidently the center has yet to receive the offer he was hoping for. The New York Giants expressed interest in de la Puente a good 20 days ago but nothing has come to fruition as of yet. Ten days ago de la Puente had a visit with the Redskins, but again no contract was finalized. Since then, the Redskins...

The Redskins continued their slow move through free agency on Friday, signing interior offensive lineman Mike McGlynn.

McGlynn has started 47 of 56 games with the Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals and most recently the Indianapolis Colts over the past six seasons. This...

Best guard in Indianapolis Colts draft history

Offensive guards are significant to the Colts as of late. Why are they significant? Well, because the Colts have had a bevy of issues with the position during the Andrew Luck era. Mike McGlynn is an abysmal right guard and rookie Hugh Thornton struggled mightily in Donald Thomas’s place due to injury. Coupled with the terrible play of center Samson Satele, the innards of the Colts...

It is no secret that the Indianapolis Colts need help all across the offensive line. Keeping Andrew Luck healthy and upright is vital to the Colts success for years to come. So investing in some big boys come May is crucial. The Colts need to hit a home run somewhere in the draft with an interior lineman, even though it will not be a glamorous pick.
