Trent Cole on Terron Armstead: “He’s got some weak spots”

The Saints took a huge chance putting an untested rookie at left tackle with two games left in the regular season.

But while Terron Armstead bounced back from a nightmare debut against Greg Hardy and the Panthers, that performance put him on the radar of Eagles outside linebacker Trent Cole.

He’s very athletic, but he’s got some weak spots,” Cole said, via Terrance Harris, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “That’s the thing, man, going into the game you take advantage of them. I see they helped him out with a bunch of chips and stuff, and it’s helped out.

“But it’s a challenge for him, and it’s a challenge for me. Every game is different, every player is different.”

Asked if he expected the Saints to provide help for Armstead, Cole replied: “They’d better.”

Armstead played better in his second start in relief of Charles Brown, but he was also faced with less of a challenge.

Cole is an upgrade over what the Buccaneers threw at him last week, and Armstead better be ready for the Eagles to throw multiple looks at him as the Panthers did, in an effort to confuse.

    The Eagles should overload that spot the first few d plays to shake the man’s confidence.

    Old Orleans is a mess. Switching up their LT and K right before the playoffs, geez…

    Cole won’t get to brees once on Saturday. Brees, against that secondary, will have the ball out before he has a chance to take him down. But hey it’s good to be confident. And sean payton is a smarter coach than billy davis and chipper, so he’ll have it figured out. Start making golf plans, trent.

    Wow 8 whole sacks huh? Shaking in my boots.

    Let’s check the stats on Mr. Cole, shall we? 8 sacks, 43 tackles. In the worst division in football. Where was he the other 1,000 defensive snaps this season?

    Let him come. And by the time he hits the line and Armstead flatens him Drew will have passed to Sproles who now occupies his spot.

    saints fans talking trash about cole…that’s really cute. now sit back, relax, and wait for your arse to be handed to you…

    the switch from the 4-3 to 3-4 base was a concern initially about cole…but the second half of the season he’s been bringing it and looks much more comfortable.
