Excerpt: "Giants offensive tackle Sean Locklear, a journeyman who has been with three NFL teams over his nine-year NFL career, is quickly showing the coaches that his accumulated experience is more than sufficient in helping to protect quarterback Eli Manning’s blind side.

“He’s been what we’ve hoped for,” said offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. “He hasn’t hurt us in the pass game at all. His protection’s been excellent– he’s been one of the better performers in pass protection. He’s still learning some of the things with the run game and the way we do it, so I think he’ll get better. When we’ve erred, it’s not been something that he did that hurt us. I’ve been very pleased with him.”

If we can give Eli time and the running backs holes through which they can run, we are going to be a force.

agreed. 15th in NFL in rushing will be plenty sufficent for a 11-12 win season.

Hopefully in game time when called upon, it stays that way.
