    DAVID DIEHL: POSITION MAKES "NO DIFFERENCE"

    "Say what you want about New York Giants
    offensive lineman David Diehl. And
    I know many of you will say he's terrible, the Giants should have cut him along
    with Kareem
    McKenzie
    , etc., etc. One thing you cannot say is that Diehl is selfish.



    Diehl has started at every spot on the offensive line except center during
    his nine seasons with the Giants, and he might be in for another move in 2012.




    He began the 2011 season at left guard, making way for Will Beatty at
    left tackle. Then, of course, moved back to tackle when Beatty went on Injured
    Reserve.




    Odds are, Diehl opens 2012 at right tackle in place of McKenzie. In typical
    Diehl fashion, he really doesn't care.




    "Whether it's at left tackle or right tackle, it's no difference to me,"
    Diehl said this week.




    It is that kind of attitude that has helped keep Diehl in the Giants' lineup
    this long. And it takes players with attitudes like that to win Super
    Bowls."

    what some think about DD:




    he sucks




    he's a turnstile




    he cant block




    he's gonna get Eli killed




    he's one of the worst O-linemen in the league







    well I guess Reese and the Giants FO think differently.

      Well bout time he realizes that the only chance for him to start is at RT, LOL

      I heard that the LG competition is gonna be between Boothe and Petrus, Snee has the RG spot on lock, Baas isnt going anywhere just yet, and Beatty is our LT, so naturally the only spot open for grabs is RT

          Crossing my fingers for Brewer to win the spot. Diehl will make versatile depth.

              [/quote]Hell yea, and most versitle backups as well. The guy has experience at every spot on the line (not sure if he ever snapped, but we always have Boothe)

                Diehl is just a great Giant and always has been. He was pretty good at Guard and stepped in admirably when he switched to LT a few years ago. Players like David Diehl don't come along often, and even though his skill set may be declining some, he's still a valuable member of the Giants and I'm appreciative of everything he's done for the organization. Just a class act all around.

                  If we sign Winston and draft OL, it wouldn't surprise me if he is cut.

                        Re: DAVID DIEHL: POSITION MAKES "NO DIFFERENCE"

                        I love Diehl and he's the ultimate team player.

                        I don't want to see him go, but like BJ I'd like to see him take somewhat of a cut to stay.

                        If Diehl is starting anywhere on the line in '12, then we're on trouble. But I'd love to keep him around as a back-up.

                            Diehl has never objected to moving to RT, ever. And he played there early in his career.
