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

    Every time I saw Eli manning on his back I saw #66 on my TV screen.

    Agreed, TC can see the talent in anyone and put them in a situation to win games..

    Against average pass rushers Diehl is bad. Against better than average pass rushers Diehl is AWFUL. The Saints pass rush is one of the worst in the league.

    Smith and Jordan are the type of pass rushers that diehl can handle all day long. Neither are especially fast nor strong. The reason dd gets so much hate around here, is a lot of the time because we're losing and no one knows any better. However he has had a very checkered past, go to PFF to see his play during the super bowl run, not very good. We'll see how he does next week in a dome in on the road against some speedy rushers.

    He has played much better at RT than he did at LT or LG.

    You mean David Deihl isn't the anti-Christ after all?

    The criticism of his play was justified... but like anyone on this team though as soon as they dont perform aces, the armchair GM's demand that not only are they benched, they are washed up and worthless as human beings.

    That begs the question does the RB matter?
