    I hope David DeCastro falls to us. I would be cool with us taking him to improve the LG spot.

    If you look at the rushing numbers, they are FAR higher with Diehl at LT last year then with Beatty (like 30% higher).[/quote]
    Yes, because we all know the LT position is the only position that impacts the run game.

    Beatty is a better pass blocker than Diehl is (at least as far as least year went) but DD is a much better run blocker.
    Prove Diehl is a much better run blocker. Go ahead. Ill wait. Team running success or failure is completely attributed to just the LT, right? Why even play the other 4 guys?

    [quote user="juice33s"]Your numbers don't really say much to support your argument either. [/quote]
    Well they certainly dont support yours.

    For starters running around the tackle usually has a TE involved so you can't give sole credit to the tackle and secondly it only has average, not total yardage or attempts
    Why would attempts or total yards be more meaningful than yards per attempt?

    Also, you originally said that LG was the problem when your own numbers show running in that area has one of the highest averages.
    Behind the LT/LG they averaged about the same as they did running outside of Kareem McKenzie, who was awful.

    Its no secret that Beatty is not a mauler and I don't think its much of a coincidence that his absence coincided with the giants rejuvenated run game.
    You keep saying this like you have any evidence of that being true. Beatty holds his own in the running game. In fact he may have been the BEST run blocker on the OL last season.

    Where as guys you seem to have a problem with (Boothe, Petrus) had a noticeable and direct impact on the run games improvement once inserted in to the lineup
    Yes, replacing Diehl who was horrible at LG had an improvement on the run game. Glad we agree.
