    I think after looking a little closer at the O Iine (it was always obvious we need a RT) a closer look at the interior particularly at replacing Booth and Baas may me in order. Look for someone in FA and one in the draft (not sure if Cordle is the guy in the center, really didn't see enough of him). Additionally, although many may disagree a solid push by Brewer this year and the G'Men could have a solid line.

      Unfortunately we're not getting rid of Baas anytime soon... it's just too costly on the cap to cut him outright and we're going to have to play out his contract. Wouldn't mind seeing a late round project either this year or next to develop into the C of the future though...

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

        But we gotta take into account 2 Key FA's in Boothe and Beatty, who were the 2best lineman we had for the course of the season.. Locklear was great, but just tore his ACL at his age, and Snee is still solid, but slowly falling off yr to yr, and Diehl is terrible, and Brewer is basically a unknown, and Baas can be upgraded.. The bottom line is that article means very little with the situations are Oline faces going forward....

          Great stuff from @PFF, ranking the NFL's O-lines. Giants ranking was different than I expected ...

          ... PFF ranked the Giants 11th, way up from 31st where they had ranked them last year. They ranked them 20th in pass blocking, 4th in run blocking.

          PFF also had some very interesting analysis of the line and a couple of players in particular -- Will Beatty and David Diehl -- but you'll have to go to their site to read it ...

          Rankings on pass blocking are arbitrary and relate largely to sacks allowed. They don't factor in how much time the QB really has to get rid of the ball or who the QB is. In our case Eli, has a good clock in his head and got rid of it quickly. Why should the OL get credit for that? What we don't know is how much better he'd have been with an extra half second to make that read. I like stats because they provide a reference point to begin the analysis. Howver, many of these stats are little more than numbers which haven't been normalized for strength of the competition, who the quarterback is, the type of stadium you play in etc, etc.
          No one remembers who came in second.
