    The truth is, every pressure when Eli threw his picks or fumbled came from the left. More specifically it came from Kevin Boothe's man.

    So all you divas ragging on Diehl owe him a big apology cause you obviously don't know jack.

    Other than that, have a nice night.

    The backs and tight ends were helping Diehl constantly. That leaves nobody to help out with other rushers.

    I have been saying its not all his fault this offense is struggling, and I may not be an expert at breaking down games, but I know enough that Locklear seemed to be playing much better than Diehl. Could it be that Diehl might be a better run blocker and TC is trying so hard to make the run game work he put Diehl back in?

    Diehl's not better period. We had better pass and run blocking when he was out.

    You didn't comment about the backs.

    The backs are ALWAYS there to block and have been for a long time whether Diehl is there or not.

    Did you see how often the backs clipped Diehl's man. That leaves no one to help out with the other rushers.

    Diehl needed help because he was struggling all game. At this rate, you can say that Diehl is good to give up a sack minimum every game. That is simply unacceptable. I know our line was regressing before Diehl came back, but its frustrating when you see someone give up a sack a game or more for someone who did not give up a sack over multiple games.

    Please stop...

    STOP BEING A HOMER....

    I used to be a homer for Jason Sehorn... I would make excuse after excuse as to why he wasn't playing like he did pre-injury.

    The guy had the type of potential at the position that made you drool. He could hit, tackle, run and get the ball at it's highest point.... and he had hands like a wide receiver. For the first 3 years of his career I don't think I ever saw him get beat on a fade. I'm sure a lot of you remember the 1997 playoffs when he skied in the air in front of Cris Carter... I have never seen a human being attack a ball like that EVER.

    BUT, this is apples to oranges because Diehl NEVER WAS THAT TALENTED. If We had to compare the talent difference I would say it's more like Delvin Joyce compared to Joe Morris.

    LET IT GO. HE ISN'T GOOD. He was always a hardnosed, outwork you type of player. He has physically declined and judging by his current weight and the sheer look at his lack of tightness... he isn't keeping his body the way he should to play professional football. The guy is a joke out there.

    DAVID DIEHL IS PASSED HIS PRIME. We had no problem letting go of Shaun O'hara and Kareem McKenzie despite what they did for us. Why should Diehl get a pass?
