Thread: D Diehl proved he is better than he gets credit for around here

    Let's see how he holds up against a speed rusher (usually his biggest issue) in John Abraham before we're so forgiving...Saint's d-line and front 7 in general has been awful this year

    I would submit that our offense, especially our running game, improved dramatically last year when DD moved to LT. He's not a guard. That's a myth. He's a tackle.
    He is certainly not what he used to be but we did win a SB with DD protecting Eli's blind side.

    Sounds like you're hoping for him to fail.

    And he hasn't been an "aweful player" the last 2 years.
    He was the worst OT in the league, and was the worst Lg in the league. He has indeed been awful

    One game out of the many terrible games he has had over the past two seasons. He did step up yesterday, which is good for the team. But Locklear is still a whole lot better than DD now. But injuries are part of the game. Let's just hope DD can repeat this performance.

    Yet the O line improved substantially after he moved to LT last year.

    As far as I'm concerned, we were damned lucky to have him and are lucky to have him now. What do you think would happen to our O line if he went down with injury now?
    I would say that we'd be in big trouble.

    The OL didn't improve. Did you watch the 49ers game? That was some of the worst pass blocking I have ever seen

    Beatty is roughly 2 million percent better than Diehl is at LT.

    "he has been awful for 2 years" I dont think he is the best T at all but awful thats low. he really is a superb guard though.

    The oline isn't only about protection. What about run gaps. Our run game has declined over the past three seasons. Yes. We had excellent pass protection last season, but we were. Dreadful run team as well due to our oline.
