Has anybody noticed that since the return of David Diehl--the offense has been out of whack?

I noticed Deihl limping heavily after an early play in the game.........he is not himself. Once again, as with O'hara two years ago Coughlin has rushed a veteran back on the field unnessesarily.

To do us a big favor and make this year's SB your retirement party

Diehl is due to make 4.1 million next year. He'll either take a big pay cut or he'll be gone. I'm guessing this is his last year with the Giants and it should be spent as a rotational player.

I know there are an endless amount of Diehl threads going on, but my title is the best and funniest. IMO, he sux and should be banished to the corn field. Locklear was doing just fine and didn't deserve to go back to the bench. If he stays out there at RT, Eli won't last too much longer. Thank you and have a great day.

Diehl should be a backup and rotational player. Locklear needs to start. Diehl is gone next year. He's due to make too much.

I agree with everyone, Diehl is horrible. If he makes that block with 4 minutes left in the game Eli probably makes the completion and keeps the drive alive. There's a reason why we hadn't been given up sack as much this year, DD has been out of the starting line up.

He's not good enough for that. I'd rather have Brewer get some snaps.

Diehl is an embarrassment to all NFL offensive linemen

you should probably re-watch the game. almost every pressure all day was on diehls side. eli was uncomfortable in the pocket all day. yes, eli still played bad, but it all starts with pressure and there was pressure on almost every drop back

Ur not coaching for the better of the team when u let some dude who clearly has regressed come back into the fold when u have a guy who also is a long standing NFL vet whos been freaking brilliant, go to the pine in favor of him.. I'm so sick and tired of guys careers when they were young and good, make coaches keep them in regardless of what they've found when that person was out, in this case Locklear.... U have to be freaking a blind idiot to not see Diehl is a shell of his former self.. Every fan, casual and hard core knows that.. It litteraly makes my head hurt that a coach making millions can actually make a decison like that.. There isn't one giants fan in this country who would of given Diehl the nod over Locklear.. None!

What I don't get is, he didn't play that well at tackle before he got hurt. So why take Locklear out when the unit was doing good to put Diehl back at tackle? Would have made more since replacing Boothe with Diehl.

11-05-2012, 12:06 PM
As soon as the announcement was made that a player does not lose their position because of an injury, I knew we were in trouble. He should have never had the position to begin with. Here is another position that the giants have neglected over the years. He let pressure in all day and typical false start penalty at the wrong time.

Yeah, supposedly the coaches told Locklear that Diehl would be starting and that the Giants philosophy is that no player loses his position due to injury. IN MY OPINION, DIEHL HAS LONG AGO LOST HIS POSITION DUE TO INADEQUATE PERFORMANCE. Don't understand our coaches at all - Diehl is TERRIBLE.

The funny thing about this is that we dealt with similar garbage when O Hara returned. The OLine was doing just fine and when he came back, the team went to hell. The OLine was doing a nice job. Enter Diehl and then they go to hell.

You are right. He is the main reason why we lost, but you can blame him for the multiple hits on Eli took as a result of his terrible pass protection. He was awful yesterday. Absolutely awful. It was so bad they even had Bradshaw lined up behind Deihl many of our pass plays.

Yes, and on one of those plays, Bradshaw turned his back to the line and Eli got waffled as the defender ran right by Bradshaw unseen. It's not all Diehl's fault

David Diehl returned to the starting lineup at right tackle for the first time since suffering a knee injury in Week 2. He did not fare well against Pittsburgh's speed up front.

Eli Manning was sacked twice in the fourth quarter by Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley, both of whom raced around the right side Diehl was manning in place of Sean Locklear.

Tom Coughlin defended Diehl after the game, insisting, "Yes, he was ready to go. He had, what, three weeks of playing the [jumbo] tight end, so we could watch and see how he was pushing and how strong he was."

On a serious note, Coughlin has no credibility and he cannot be taken seriously no matter what the homers say around here. He said that we cannot have Bradshaw practicing one day and then playing, but Bradshaw is in the game every week. He said that "they addressed" the red zone scoring problems, we all know the results. Oh, well. I guess we have to live with the same crap until, he is gone. Because nothing will change while he is here. The bad thing is, the older he gets, the worst his decision making is becoming.

Fans and readers alike are taking it as Coughlin defending his reasoning for starting Diehl. Coach will never come out publicly and say it was his fault. He needs to prove it in his actions by starting Locklear. I am going to find it difficult to feel good about any of our upcoming games with Diehl starting.

TheEnigma

Diehl is one of the few original players left from when TC started here. Outside of Snee and maybe Eli, Coughlin LOVES this dude more than anyone on the team and would probably defend him in a murder trial. It would take an injury or suspension for Diehl to lose his job.

CuseGirl
11-05-2012, 02:52 PM
Two SB wins in 5 years isn't "mediocrity"Remember, there's still fans out there who want the cake and icing and the sparking candles. I will admit, I'm in that category sometimes: I want the Giants to be good ALL year, to NOT have to hear those statements of "well they were 9-7 last year, they just got hot". I want 12+ wins and a title. I want the giants to be totally GOOD THROUGH AND THROUGH. And seeing Deihl out there who really can't pass protect, it's hard.

This loss probably doesn't mean as much: inter-conference game, only the 3rd loss, the other 3 division rivals are in the rear view mirror. But it stings, especially at home when you have a chance to keep pace with ATL and the Bears.

The reality is that we tried DD at right tackle. He played there many years ago and really struggled. He is actually a better LT then anything else. He's actually not a very good guard either.
He's clearly not athletic enough anymore to play LT, so he needs to be a multi position back up right now. I too am not happy that he's starting at RT. But I'm not upset that he didn't criticize DD publicly either.

On post game interviews TC frequently says "I have to review the tape first before commenting", but with Diehl he does not say that and skirts the issue. Some people have a hard time admitting when they are wrong and in my opinion TC is wrong about starting Diehl over Locklear.

We'll have to wait and see who starts Sunday. Hopefully it will be Locklear or they attach a tight end to Dielh's hip

That is what i am hoping for, but TC's track doesn't show any indication he would start Locklear if Deihl is healthy enough to play.

LOL. Diehl actually blames hmself for the loss.

Right tackle David Diehl allowing a sack that sealed that decisive three-and-out in the fourth quarter, leading him to declare, “We lost the game and of course you could say, ‘Blame it on me.’ ”

Don't be too sure. He wants to win as much as anyone
