Being an offensive lineman is a lot like being a politician. It’s a thankless job, where if you’re able to slash a budget without any layoffs or prevent a sack or two, no one will notice. But if someone sees a nickel more on their tax receipt or a quarterback suddenly takes a blindside hit, you’re suddenly the worst person on the planet and need to be replaced by someone more competent immediately.
Every fan thinks that their offensive line is the worst in football. I’m here to say that whoever has the worst line, the Saints don’t. A lot of Saints fans understand how lucky we are to field the guys that we do, but there are others that think of our offensive line as less than physical freaks of nature, and more in the category of turnstiles or, even worse, nothing at all OR, even worse than nothing, Levi Brown, the "Jason David" of left tackles, if you will.
For reference, the Saints starting offensive line heading into 2014 is as follows:
LT: Terron Armstead | LG: Benjamin Grubbs | C: Jonathan Goodwin (Speculated) | RG: Jahri Evans | RT: Zachary Strief
