    GIANTS' MITCH PETRUS BRINGS MUCH NEEDED FIRE TO OFFENSIVE LINE

    "It was Week 12 and the smashmouth New York Football Giants were ranked 32nd in running the rock. Say
    what?


    Well, Week 13 and last minute player scratches shifted an already ailing
    offensive line that may have had a hard time opening holes for Darren Sproles.
    Enter Mitch
    Petrus
    to some pretty heavy rock music, please.



    The entrance tunes request is due to my first encounter with #62 on the field
    last season. It was the 2010 Detroit at New York game in Week 6. He was back near the endzone,
    waiting for a kickoff—playing air guitar to AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night
    Long.” He was so full of energy that I couldn’t help but notice him and how he
    brought something extra out there with him.




    Back to the o-line shifting. Most, I’m sure, were nervous about David
    Diehl
    moving back to LT, Kevin
    Boothe
    sliding over more to C and Petrus being inserted as LG for #10, #44
    & #27. Little did they realize the spark (read: mean streak) that this would
    provide in the trenches—in his very first NFL start, mind you.




    Everything happens for a reason and players have to be ready to step up
    whenever their number is called…yadda, yadda, yadda.




    Petrus obviously was prepared for his. He harnessed his “hypeness” and
    focused on the task at hand.




    Watch game film and pay close attention to how #62 took care of 1st round NT,
    B.J. Raji (no slouch—dude can play). Petrus held him to one solo tackle. Raji
    has over 20 pounds on him and a “spin move.” Didn’t matter.




    The more time Petrus gets in on the line, the more he will show he’s got that
    “Rich Seubert” in him. Just remember I said that…




    Interesting game match-up this weekend for Mitch who grew up in Arkansas and
    played for the Razorbacks in college. If anyone out there doesn’t know Jerry
    Jones’ affection for them (AK Razorbacks) doesn’t know this division. Just
    sayin’.




    A true test will be going against Dallas’ fast, rushing 3-4, but Diehl will
    help and from what Petrus has exhibited on-field — he’s in stance and ready for
    his call of duty."

    I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Petrus awarded a game ball Sunday.

      I ****ing love Petrus. I've been wanting him to start since last year (I actually thought he would) but I remember rewatching his game vs the Cowboys (2nd game), and he was having his way with Olshansky for the most part. Petrus completely outplayed Boothe that game.

      Remember that interview when he was a rookie and the vets put ***** over Mitch on his locker? Lmao

          We have JPP on Defense, Blackburn on ST/Defense and now Petrus on Offense. Three guys whose motors never dial down. I honestly think this is the OLine that will take us into the playoffs.

            I remember his getting called into a game last season and he ran in so fast he almost overshot the huddle lol

            That's what we need more of.

              Our OL has to hold up. We have Ware and Ratliff for two games, Mo Wilkerson and Orakpo and Kerrigan coming up.

                [/quote]Haha yup vs Seattle. He should have been our LG last year when Andrews started. Diehl should have never touched the field this year or last year.

                  Looking at Petrus' career, he's pretty much had to scrap for every opportunity he's had.....classic overarchiever.




                  This line desperately needs a dude like this following Seubert and O'Hara.

                      [/quote]that's if they keep it this way. Remember last year we were having trouble running when a couple of starters went down. They plugged the holes and we ran the ball MUCH better but when Ohara and co. Got healthy they went back and so did our run game. Never understood why they changed back

                        I believe if Boothe and Petrus can repeat their performances of last week, Baas will go to IR. Assuming no further injuries, I know, that's a loaded assumption, these guys can take us into the playoffs. Diehl being at LT may stand a chance at getting some extra incentive bonus money as well. I don't think they reworked his contract, just moved him to Guard.

Never understood the switch back and it really turned me off of Coughlin who I viewed as a little too loyal towards his vets.

                              I had just been asking about Petrus on these boards last week before the game. I remember when we first drafted him and the team was saying he was a real mauler in camp. They sounded very high on him. That kind of talent doesn't just dry up.
