    I think Diehl might lose the starting job to Brewer or Mosley unless he steps his game up. Don't get me wrong, I really like the guy, but he's been pretty awful the past 2 years...

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

      I think Locklear must have his name thrown in that competition also.

        Competition is always good. A TC coached team is always a meritocracy. If someone beats out Diehl it means our OL is stronger. That is how championship teams are built; continuous improvement, big and small at every position and coaching slot too.
        No one remembers who came in second.

          I agree.... which is why I mentioned one of the candidates left off the list.

            +1. I really don't think that both Diehl AND Beatty will be starting this year going into game 1. Someone's going to step up and start over one of those two. This new starter may not be gangbusters, but will earn it more because Diehl and Beatty aren't that great.

            I'm not crazy about our starting o-line no matter who starts, but I like the overall depth.

              100%. Coughlin always goes with who shows him more. He doesn't care if you were undrafted or a first round pick, and the Giants as an organization stand behind the coach and do not interfere based on pay scale.

                I'm thinking they may carry 9 O-linemen. I guess right now I would pretty much agree that our starting 5 will be Beatty, Diehl, Booth, Snee and Baas. But who knows, nothing is a given right now. I think Petrus, Brewer, Locklear, and Mosley are kept for depth.

                Maybe the Giants put McCants on the practice squad.

                And cant forget Cordle and Capers---don't know if they are practice squad eligible?

                  At least we have the guys to put together a good line and still have depth

                    Still don't like the offensive line. We need to be stronger and more explosive. I still see us having issues in short yardage situations. Beatty doesn't look any bigger or stronger than the day he walked off the UCONN campus. If I was getting paid what he is my butt would be in the GYM 24/7!!

                      this might be a case of the chicken and the egg....,but if you were in the gym 24/7....you might be getting paid what he does.

                        No way does Diehl get beat out. He's been a fixture on the line for the last decade, and until it's painfully obvious he's not longer an NFL caliber lineman, he keeps his position. I think Beatty may have to hold off Locklear; but I can't see TC replacing Diehl. I think Brewer and Mosley sit for this year, and next year maybe TC tells Diehl it's time to pack it in.

                        Remember, they let O'Hara and Seubert go during the off-season, same with McKenzie; it's just not likely you'll see a guy who helped win two superbowls benched.

                        The boldest move TC could make:

                        LT Locklear
                        LG Petrus
                        C Boothe
                        RG Snee
                        RT Diehl, Brewer/Mosley Brewer might be the best option today, can't wait to see him in action in pre-season to see if he's progressed

                        Chances of it happening- 0%
