    Agree. And I hope so!!

    • I think if Pugh does not start it will be a bummer dude. I think when you draft someone you want them to be good. One way to prove your good is to win the starter job. You know what I mean?

        he never says the word "starting".....first of all.....eventhough that word means nothing at this point

        but listen to it in context .....it means nothing

        he says " the right tackle is David Diehl"

        meaning right now ...like as in today

        no positions are set in stone

          1. The implication is the same.
          2. "Starting" means a lot on the O line. Its not like D line where you can rotate guys in and out. Or play in specialty packages. Its a 5 man unit that must play together, When you "start" on the O line, you essentially play every offensive down.
          Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

            it is exactly as YA said. DD is the starter by default. What team, especially the Giants, would name a rookie the starter??

                  The only other option is not to name the rookie as starter.
                  I'm saying he should have declared the RT position an open competition, which one would expect after the kid was picked at 19.
                  Instead he said that DD "was the RT" (OK Y.A.?). This surprises me given the huge pay cut and the fact that they supposedly "loved" Pugh.

                  The entire thing suggests that they aren't as impressed with Pugh thus far as they had hoped. If Pugh came in and looked good it would have been declared an open competition it seems to me.

                  And BTW....all the other O linemen drafted ahead of Pugh are listed as the starters on their teams depth charts. So the list is actually very long.
                  Of course those teams didn't reach into the second round to draft their guys.

                  So instead of posters lobbing personal insults about misplaced brains, lets have a football discussion.

                    there is nothing to discuss yet really MH. Pat Flahtey said DD is the starter as of now. So what. Means nothing.
                    If you liked the Pugh pick you wouldnt be saying anything regarding this. But since you dont like the pick you are reading way too much into it...IMO
                    If it comes down to the second or third preseason game and Pugh is showing not to be the starter then maybe you'll have a point at that time.

                      I admit that I hate the pick because it was poor value based on their draft position. I have nothing against the kid. I do have a problem with passing on the kind of talent we passed on.
                      But he was picked to start day 1 at RT, and now they are having second thoughts.
                      And I looked it up, actually EVERY O linemen picked in round 1 (i believe its 8) are listed as starters.....except our guy. And our guy has a declining vet in front of him.
                      I'm seeing a huge red flag here with this. You guys can whistle past the graveyard if you want, but my eyes are wide open.

                      And BTW, I hope I'm wrong because as much as I love DD, he has never been a good RT, and now he's near the end of his career. If this kid can't beat out DD at RT, we have a big problem.

                        what you say is all good and you have valid points but you are getting too worked up at this point in camp. The other OLs were named starters....BFD. They may not be come week one.

                          so the 3rd practice of camp 1st team determines more than just the third day of camp 1st team?

                          since when ?

                            I'm not worked up. I'm commenting on this issue based on the facts as we know them.
                            My point is that this comment by our O line coach raises a red flag about the first round draft pick that we supposedly "loved". When a broken down vet coming off a huge pay cut under threat of release is ahead of him.

                              I'm not saying that Y.A. This is just a strange comment from a coach after we drafted this kid so high. And dropped DD's pay to near the vet minimum.

                                ok....yuo are worked up because this topic is on your radar and you have been all over it since the draft. I guess I have too.
                                DD.....which whom they say is now healthy is not broken down. Why is that not taken as gospel if coach is saying it??
                                DD loves the Giants and football. he knew this was his only chance to still play so whats wrong with that??
                                Too soon to get crazy that Pugh will not start. IMO......but you do as you must to maintain your sanity....
