Takk is out marking this a perfect chance for 44 to show his worth. We’re banged up and need someone to step up, This why you draft elite pass rushers right? If he doesn’t show up today I’ll be all for letting him walk in FA 

He's going up against Armstead(a top 3 LT) Beasley disappears when he faces elite tackles.

Wrong for multiple reasons, the largest of which being that Beasley lines up at LDE. He almost never takes snaps against LTs, something even casual fans notice...Mr. "Objective" Elite.

Before the obvious "blah blah why not line up against the LTs guess he sucks" rebuttal, he's a LEO. Which means he (like Von Miller, Khalil Mack, and other speed rushers) almost always lines up on the right tackle.

That being said, Brees isn't a threat to scramble. Beasley needs to be disruptive today, period.

I'd be shocked if Beasley makes stats today BUT we may be in luck.  Brees is not a particularly mobile QB and he prefers to step up in the pocket.  Interior pass rush will be more important.  Vic, Brooks, Means and whoever else plays DE needs to keep the side walls intact so that we can box him in for Jarrett, Senat, Crawford and McClain (who has been largely a waste of money so far).

What's not true?

1) Armstead isn't a top 3 LT. He's very good, don't get me wrong, but he's in the same realm as Matthews, but with an extensive injury history (ie top 8-12, though Matthews is really balling this year)

2) The talent of the tackle isn't Beasley's big issue, it's their specific skillset. He struggles hard against tackles that move well laterally because he isn't great at converting speed to power.

3) Beasley won't line up on Armstead regardless since he plays LDE (already said this part).

So yeah. Legitimately everything you said was wrong. But let's hope Beasley does well today, because I'm getting sick of the disappearing act too.

Our best defense will be our offense. Keep fa-breezy off the field otherwise...trouble will ensue.

Fa sho!! We need long drives to keep breezus off the field and tire those man to man corners out. Also cant let brees drive the field definitely need 3 and outs.

Cover 3 and man are both great when you have a pass rush. I hope means brings it today cause im not putting my faith in anyone not named tak
