    Coach's Big Decision: Diehl's Rerturn

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-diehls-return

    Excerpt: "The Giants have already made their big decision for this week as they will re-insert David Diehl as the starting right tackle Sunday against the Steelers. Diehl will take the place ofSean Locklear, who had started the past six games since Diehl suffered an MCL injury in his right knee.

    Giants head coach Tom Coughlin all but said the Giants are re-inserting Diehl back into the lineup because a starter can’t lose his job due to an injury. Diehl has played as the team’s extra tight end in jumbo packages the past three weeks, playing 25 snaps.

    “We brought David along trying to make sure that he was okay, and that his strength was there, his confidence was there,” Coughlin said Friday. “He started out in the same role that Sean will be in this weekend. That’s where we are on that.” Read more...

    This move will be under a microscope today. Considering how well the line has been playing if lets up more than one sack this move will criticized up and down on Monday morning.

    If Eli gets hurt today, Coughlin will get tarred and feathered and run out of the swamp on a rail

    While a concern, the bigger concern is Baas. He had an ankle last week and now this week he has an elbow and ankle issue. I think with the strength of the Steeler D line Baas could be in big trouble this week...

    Baas is big trouble every week.....whats new, hes a weak link

    You're right, if Deihl should have come in anywhere it should have been at Center

    Does it matter he's never played at center?

    No he would still outperform Baas..........I think Boothe is a better Center.....Boothe at Center would open up the running game

    Diehl who has never played center would outperform Baas? Diehl who is rated pretty low on protection?
