Seems like we're whiffing on anything related to the offensive line these days....not good!

How do you fail a physical as a professional athlete, i dont get it. Are these physicals like health related and athletic related? Just on of them? both? Im not familiar with that they mean when they say "physical"; they kinda just toss that word around and never give a solid explanation of what someone failed at.

Beg petrus to come back? You do realize he would jump at the chance of having a job right?

Not good at all.

It seems like any and everything O-line is going wrong this year.

Per Rotoworld:


Claimed off waivers Saturday by the Giants, OT D.J. Jones failed his physical and will be returned to unrestricted free agency.
The Giants are back on the lookout for a reserve offensive tackle. Jones, 24, was waived by the Eagles at final cuts. His injury has not been disclosed.

Coughlin says OT DJ Jones failed a physical. That means there's an open roster spot. #nyg

We shouldn't have picked up this dude anyways. Any player from the Eagles has not worked well for us in the past.

I thought Petrus so well last season when he got his opportunities to play season. I really thought that he would've been starting this season. Our run game was a whole lot better last season when he is in there.

I wonder who gets the 53rd spot on the roster now. We have 3 OL stashed on the practice squad, could see one of them moving up to the 53. Wouldn't be opposed to grabbing some insurance at another position though.

ugh the only weak unit is the oline and the cb's but we'll be fine with them

I guess he good enough all of a sudden.....:)I sure hope Reese is still looking. I don't know how this Jones character fails a physical? Did he have some injury that Philthy missed?

Jones needs to take his sorry butt back to Philly!

unlike some, I think the 2ndary will be Ok as long as the Pass Rush is hitting on all cylinders.

it has been and will remain the O Line as my chief concern.

(McCants and Locklear? Really?)

This is actually a good sign. Last year we brought in a te to retire on us and look what happened with ballard. Bringing in a TE to flunk phyiscal may be some disguised blessing.

Im not familiar with that they mean when they say "physical"; they kinda just toss that word around and never give a solid explanation of what someone failed at.

Sometimes teams find issues that players did know they had (ie. blood clots, heart murmurs, etc.), sometimes players have issues that they tried to cover up and sometimes they haven't recovered fully from an issue they had previously. I am also starting to wonder if physicals might not be standard because it seems some players can make it through the physical on certain teams and not make it on others.

Petrus did not play poorly last year. I dont know what happened to the fire he had. I wonder if he is having personnel or physical problems we dont know about.

JR's OL decisions are about as good as Brian Cashman's pitching decisions!!
