Diehl is saying he will be ready for the Browns and it looks like they are going to Start him. I don't have a problem with that, but my question is when Beatty said he was ready after his injury Why did the Giants sit him.

Because the team thought he wasn't ready?

I agree, I wish Jerry Reese would hurry up and cut him.. Throwing out James Brewer at RT can't be any worse than David Diehl, and the positive is that Brewer is still developing so theres only upside in playing him.

Think they should keep Locklear in and work Brewer in by the end of the year.

Diehl had clearly struggled. I believe Locklear played better at RT than Diehl has. And it looked like Beatty had better game at LT than Locklear. I am anxious to see how the hold up against the Eagles front.

I don't think this is insulting to Diehl. Every player knows he's going to make an obscene amount of money while he's effective, and then be cast aside. It will happen to Eli, Cruz, Brewer, etc.

Would Diehl be a better start at LG, his natural position, over Kevin Boothe?

I don't mind so much if Diehl starts at RT or guard, but I don't want to see him matched up against ANY team's best DE EVER again.

At this point in DD's career he should be just for depth then released after this season he is going to make too much for a back-up

DD isnt playing. if the OL struggles, DD could sneak back into a starting role. but if they play avg. to above avg, there is no way I could see TC putting DD back in.
He'll actually be really good depth. he plays with a ton of passion and energy. who knows, maybe if his snaps are cut, his play could improve

At this point, DD belongs in our ring of honor, not our offensive line...
