Thread: Tuck and JPP flipping sides?

  1. #11
    It would be JPP against a weaker link in most lines = right tackle
    Let tuck go against left tackle which is usually the best lineman

    But Tuck is not our best DLineman

    In general, Tuck just needs to step it up.

    I don't want to look too far into this, but maybe they're trying to rejuvenate Tuck with a little change in scenery. I know, it doesn't make sense to give him the better lineman, but who knows.

    I'm almost certain that's the route the Panthers took with Peppers in 2008, and it worked wonders.

    JPP should be able to take advantage of right tackles on passing downs and he is playing the run better these days. Tuck should do well shutting down the run on the right side and give the team a push on passing downs as he'll be 1-on-1 most of the time.

    Could this also have something to do with mobile QBs and a tendency to role/run to their right side? I don't know what the statistics are on that, but it seems like a logical move to put JPP on the side the QB would gravitate toward.
    My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

    I don't think Clowney falls all the way to 32.

    My issue isn't with JPP moving as I think he can play anywhere, but rather Tuck.

    We could just draft a stud DE with the 1st and make all of this a moot point. If someone like Werner were to fall in our laps, it would give us more versatility to utilize with the DEs. I think Tuck needs LESS snaps tbh.
