  • I think we should revamp the O-line through draft/FA & resign Bennett this off season

    "I often hear some fans say where was Bennett this game?"


    Where was Bennet? He was blocking for our putrid offensive line. He doesn't get even close to the amount oif opportunities to catch passes that most other starting TE's get.

    Thus far through 14 games Bennett has had a pretty decent season. No eye popping numbers. So if you look at it, it looks like he's nothing really all that special. However when you see how little he gets to run a route those numbers start to impress.


    He's coming from a team where he saw next to no playing time compiled by poor coaching. In his first stint here with us under Mike Pope's tutelage I think he's turned in a fine season and has so much room to grow.


    I can see Bennett as a 70+, 1,000+ yard, 8+ TD TE without question.

    Resigning Bennett is a great plan and hope the Giants do, but whether they can resign him or not is going to be dependent on what the market is for him. If teams are willing to over pay for him like the Raiders did for boss then he won't be back here.

      Giants already have a ton of salary tied up in the Oline, with Diehl in particularly (and Baas less so) looking like albatrosses, so I don't see them doing anything meaningful on the FA front. As always, they'll draft whomever they think is the best available at that time, not focus on position.

        Draft Defense and Oline players. Look how terrible Dallas Defense was last year and this year they have the best defense (although inconsistent at times) in the division. Eli couldn't do anything in both games when we played them.

          Dallas spent 10/mil a year on Carr.

              the Giants will draft BPA and pass on the guy they really need because he graded lower than someone else, I know most people believe in that theory but it doesn't help your team when you need a really good guard and a WR graded higher so you take him and suffer with crappy O line blocking. I know all the arguments to defend this but it doesn't help when you don't have what you need because of this type of drafting....

                I think it has been very obvious that we need to address the Oline NOW and stop trying to just get by

                  I hope the BPA is a OT, DE, or LB. We need help at all three positions.

                    I have issues with BPA especially if there's a guy nearly as good who fills a need. And, let's be truthful, there's often very little difference between a dozen available players when it comes to their overall rating. The problem, as I see it, is that the BPA often spends two years on the bench doing little or nothing, while the guy who could fill a need would be playing and improving. There's a pile of teams who drafted a starting OL, after we had already picked up Wilson. I'm not bashing Wilson; but there's guys out there who could have done this team a whole lot more good this year, and been starters for a long time. When you can't get your best players on the field because several of them play behind another best player, it seems like a waste. JR's system seems to work for keeping the team competitive in the free agent era; but it just seems like he could still address needs a little more directly than he does.

                      Lol at revamp the oline. Please. The o line is a middle of the pack line, not the disarray people make it out to be. Baas will take a pay cut, DD will probably be released, or serve as a very useful backup who can fill in anywhere on the line for small stretches. Boothe is solid, beatty is a stud, and snee is old but serviceable. We really don't need to sell shop. Hopefully they draft a tackle like dj fluker who is k mac2.0 andcan play RT for the next ten years. We wonthe super bowl last year when they were the worst unit in the league. They've stepped up to a middle of the crowd group that is NOT costing the team games like it did last year.

                        People continue to blame the O-line, as if it is the only problem with the offense, when in fact the line has been better this year than last year. While the line may not be dominate, it is in the run game that they have been bad not pass protection.

                        Manning has been pressured on just 28.6 percent of his dropbacks, which is down from 39.1 percent last season.The Giants offensive line has given up the least amount of sacks in the NFL this season. The rushing attack has gone from producing just 89 yards per game in 2011 to 115 yards this season.

                          If you're basing this on sacks allowed, that's all on Eli's pocket presence... which is also why Eli ends up with a high INT count when he has to throw early due to the porous O-line giving up pressure on damn near every play...

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

                            Read the article I posted above... Manning has been pressured on just 28.6 percent of his dropbacks, which is down from 39.1 percent last season.

                              There are no good offensive players this year so teams will draft defensive players which means all the top DE and LB will be gone when it's the Giants turn to draft.
