  • Boothe needs to be resigned and moved to center

    I still think Boothe to center gives us a better run blocking line. Baas is good in the passing game, but IMO struggles in run game.

    Last offseason I and others said that Boothe should have taken a million snaps during the offseason and be moved to center last season and then Baas could go back to his natural Guard spot which he did much better at when with the 49ers. The coaching staff obviously doesn't see it that way.

      I would love if the Giants draft Wis. C/G Travis Frederick and plug him this year at LG then move him to Center next year. I don't think the Giants are going to be able to resign both Beatty and Boothe. That been said if they are able to ink both am good with that.

        PFF ranked the Giants' line 4th in run blocking, if that helps.

            Idc my eyes tell me differently. One game they would play well and then suck the next two. The group is far too inconsistent as a whole.

              Agree but at this moment Boothe and Beatty are FA. Deihl is playing with little on the tank and Snee is going under the knife and lastly they are a year older. Its time to get younger assume the risks and go foward. That been said I will be glad if Boothe gets signed but my realistic side tells my that Beatty will and Boothe will walk.

                Boothe's butt is too big. It gets in the way of shotgun snaps. Haha. Kinda kidding there. He had some trouble with shotgun though. I'd still give it a go. A whole preseason would help. I guess the staff had reasons for not trying that before.

                  Boothe is the second highest rated OLineman behind Beatty. I'd be reluctant to separate them at this point if we can sign either or both. Baas is a better center than Boothe who tends to let the snap get away from him (and Eli) in the shotgun. The Oline needs rotation depth and immediate help on the right side at tackle.

                    I'd like to keep Boothe as well but the Giants won't pay through the nose for him.
                    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                        Baas is a better center than Boothe.

                          This, I specifically recall a bunch of bad shotgun snaps in 2011 when Boothe was filling in for Baas. He is a decent LG and Baas really didn't have a bad year. Hopefully they can keep both, and just get a servicable RT.

                            boothe is a guard and a solid one at that imo we need to treat him as #2 priorty behind beatty. sucks that petrus fell off after the way he played 2 years ago i thought he was solid

                              Baas lack size, and he is constantly getting pushed around. I think the whole line needs to be retooled for us to have success in the run game.
