Sean Payton making moves to fix his teams problems before they face Carolina

Today Sean Payton the head coach of the New Orleans Saints made some pretty big moves. The first move was cutting ties with Garrett Hartley the kicker that helped them get to the Super Bowl and secondly replacing to replacing Charlie Brown their starting left tackle with third round draft pick Terron Armstead. Payton said he understands their will be growing pains, but a change needed to be made.

“Players get injured and thrust and put into positions,” Payton said of Armstead’s lack of experience. “I think it falls on all of us to help him have success, including Charles [Brown]. And I think that his teammates will make sure they do everything they can to make sure he’s in a position to have success. We will as a coaching staff. …

“He’s athletic. He’s someone who has a pretty good feel of what we’re doing. Certainly there’ll be growing pains when you play a young player like that. And yet, it’s a guy like him who’s been around now for eight months, nine months in our program. But I think he’s smart. I think he’ll prepare and study and do all the little things. I think he’ll get great support by that room. It’s a pretty close room. So I’m anxious to see him compete.”

The Panthers defensive line has to be licking their chops to face a rookie left tackle, but don’t be surprised if Armstead shuts them down. The kid is a freakish blocker with great speed and movement.
