Thread: Our o-line is an abomination

  1. #31
    Thru 4 games the cumulative PFF rankings for the OL ranked best to worst

    Beatty +7.8
    Snee +4.6
    Locklear +0.2
    Baas -1.0
    Diehl -7.8
    Boothe -7.8

    Hopefully Diehl does not go back into the starting lineup when he is healthy. And Boothe doesn't catch much heat in these forums but he is playing pretty bad too. So much for the reshaped body.

    Yeah Boothe needs to pick up his game but it should be noted that he reached that negative score in 4 games versus Diehl's 2. Beatty also reached his positive score mainly through these recent 2 games. Looking like a C/G would be a nice position to pick up in next year's draft.

    Amazing how the offensive line looked good with Andre Brown, and crappy with Ahmad Bradshaw.

    No it's not amazing. Tampa and the Panthers are not good teams. Dallas and the Eagles have much better defenses.

    You all need to watch the Cardinal and Rams lines before dumping on our OL.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    The Buccaneers are tied with Baltimore and the 49ers for the 3rd best rushing defense in the NFL.....teams are averaging 3.2 yards per attempt. In yards per game, they are ranked 4th best in the NFL, and again, better than San Francisco.

    Against the Bucs:

    Bradshaw: 16 yards.....3.2 yards per carry.
    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/10693/ahmad-bradshaw

    Brown: 71 yards.....5.5 yards per carry
    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/12490/andre-brown


    Just for the record: Bradshaw is one of the reasons why the Giants lost last week. As another poster pointed out, on 1st and 10 on the Eagles 26, he bailed on a play and got 1 stinking yard, instead of a major gain that would have placed the Giants inside a 40 yarder for Tynes.

    Long story short, Bradshaw makes the offensive line look worse than it is. Eventually, though, this nonsense with Bradshaw will stop. I'm guessing it will be this Sunday.

    Bradshaw is not the reason they lost last week. There many reasons why they lost. You could also say that Bradshaw saved Eli from being hit many times during the game because of his blocking. The Giants where also trailing for a good portion of the Tampa game so the running game had a better chance of working. Not taking anything away from Brown, I do like him.

    yea on the first series Eli had to throw like 4 balls away because the giants olines were like turn styles. Collinsworth "Pressure on eli manning that had to throw off balance the entire series"

    Bradshaw is one of the reasons why the Giants lost. Once again, he was ineffective running the ball. His last run was the final straw with me......he bailed on the play, when if he trusted his blockers he would have picked up enough to give Tynes a great shot to win the game.

    I'm frankly sick and tired of hearing what a great blocker he is.....Brown and Eli looked great back there together in their 2 wins.

    This Sunday is going to be it..... Bradshaw will continue to make the offensive line look like crap.....the boobirds will come out, and then they'll hand the rock to Brown and suddenly the offense will come to life.......just like in the Bucs game.

    The OL looks bad because they where bad las year, they where bad during the pre season, and they are still bad.
