And our run blocking got better last year when Beatty went out for the season and was replaced by DD at LT and Boothe at LG.
I agree that Hyno and Bennett only aid in our run blocking scheme but I have a feeling that our RBs have something to do with it as well (AB losing steam, the sudden emergence of Andre Brown, David Wilson's success last game, etc ...).
I'm not exactly a David Baas fan (far from it) ... but statistically speaking, he's been playing much better than last year.
The Giants restructured his contract this year so I highly doubt there is an accelerator.
Where do you start... Hate to play the money card however,. Eli has to make up for the state of his line. Baas will never deliver his salary, neither will DD, he'll never be what he once was, and just because snee is related to the head coach doesn't make him special, or does it? For his play he's over payed. The line has become " servicable". Beatty has become the best player up front, quietly protects eli sometimes struggles in run blocking, as the entire O line does. I agree with other posters regarding the answer. Two early rounders in the draft and another couple of veteran pick ups. Don't try to fix it with FA's. Take the hit and re-build the line where needed. Give Eli & Co. some good old fashioned power football. Go Giants!
instead of cutting him how about gettig him to play better. He is still a good player and any player can get better if they want to work hard enough.....
Baas is doing just fine.
I don't think we need to blow up the Oline in the off-season, that would be extreme. But I agree we could definitely use some upgrading.
What was Brewer? Third round? Or was it later?
