    Joe Benigo even just said the o-line hasn't been the same

    Joe Benigo on WFAN even just said the o-line hasn't been the same since Diehl returned.

    Gee what a revelation.......I like Joe but that is over-stating the obvious.

    Coughlin is out to get Eli killed...........guy has 500-600 snaps and you sit him??.........for an injured guy who is lookin like a turnstile?

    the offense has been struggling ever since david diehl was back into the line up. I call this the "The Diehl Factor" It is an unlimited source of bad Juju. Until we get him out of the lineup, we will continue to be hit by "The Diehl Factor"

    All we're doing is seeing a replay of what happened when O'hara was done and Coughlin stuck him back in the line up when he shouldn't. Putting Diehl back in isn't all of the problem but it's definitely hurt the teams chemistry. The lack of protection of the ride side has started turning Eli back into his old self plus the lack of protection from AB1. And that to an awful running game and the lack of explosive plays we are looking like Clark Kent right now rather than Super Man.

    well at leaast he did the boneheaded dance at the halfway pole and not at the end lie he did with O'hara.

    Sending Petrus packing was a stroke of genius too LOL

    I think you make a good point with your comparison to O'Hara.

    Some people might fault Coughlin for excessive loyalty to Diehl....that may be true. But I can understand that.....Diehl is a guy who helped this team win 2 Super Bowls.....he's a tough, hardworking guy, and I'm sure Coughlin is personally very fond of him and wants to give him every opportunity to keep his job.

    I'm not saying that to defend the choice to go with Diehl, but rather, just trying to explain it.

    Bill Parcells said that when a player is past his prime, the decline in performance can be shocking. I think that's the case with Diehl. Or, it could that his knee simply isn't 100%.

    Either way, he's got to be replaced. Eli was far more comfortable in the pocket without Diehl in the lineup.....and I think that will be the deciding factor.

    I believe Sean Locklear will be the starting right tackle v. Green Bay.

    I hope so, but Coughlin is so damn stubborn. We might not win another game if Diehl keeps on starting.

    Why use irreputable sources to support an otherwise solid argument?
    No one remembers who came in second.

    If cougnlin plays diehl again and starts bradshaw, he deserves to be fired because he's not stubborn anymore but plain stupid.
