New Orleans Saints Players as Game of Thrones Characters
Terron Armstead as Hodor
Hodor is best known as the large simple-minded stable boy for the Stark family in Winterfell. In the current season of Game of Thrones an early episode revealed that Hodor’s real name was actually Wylis. He became simple-minded as a young man when Bran Stark, mentally moving through time, willed him to “Hold the Door” to escape the attacking white walkers. This moment in time lead him to only use the term Hodor (a combination of the phrase ‘hold the door’) thus creating his new name.
Hodor was exclusively used as a mode of transportation for Bran Stark after Bran broke his legs being pushed off a tower wall by Jaime Lannister, knight of the Kingsguard, after Bran became witness to an incestuous relationship between Jaime and his twin sister Cersei Lannister.
The comparison of Terron Armstead being simple-minded is not even remotely right because Armstead is fully capable and very knowledgable of his position, but when comparing players to characters in any land of fantasy, you can’t be 100 percent accurate.
The 6-foot 5-inch offensive tackle from Cahokia, Illinois may very well have giant’s blood coursing through his veins. Armstead is a freak athlete with the size and strength to ‘hold the door’ in order to help Drew Brees escape an oncoming ferocious pass rush.
Much like Hodor, Terron Armstead is tasked with all the dirty work and heavy lifting. He has the ability to take the weight of the entire offense on his shoulders and make the team successful. Whatever is asked of the talented left tackle it will be accomplished with no questions asked.
Armstead is selfless, as shown by his continuous play week in and week out while fighting a knee injury early in the 2015 NFL season. He was visibly bothered by the injury during gameplay, but would not personally take himself off the field.
The strength and selflessness of Armstead makes him a perfect fit as the much-loved stable boy from Winterfell.
