    what they should do is get u to stop instigating with LITERALLY dozens of posters every other day. and u can use the ignore feature. peace...
    I have also decided not to respond to any poster who used text lingo instead of the actual english language.
    There are no such words as r, u or w/o. It shows respect for your fellow posters to actually make a little effort to be understood.

    Sorry again...but I must honor my standards.

    nice analogy, now i gotta go buy a 6er

    If we transfers the tears on draft day when an olineman isn't picked in the first the Sahara desert would be an ocean. It's not happening.

    I agree the run blocking, especially in short yardage, wasnt there. Beatty is the only one I see staying over the next few years, Diehl and Snee are retiring, Baas can and should be upgraded. Im simply stating that the posters exaggerate how bad this line is/was. Ok so in QB pressure we were ranked 18th, posters here act like we are ranked last. Wish the fans would give these guys some respect, an Oline coming out and just dominating every Sunday, just doesnt happen. Especially against a defensive front like San Fran, whom another poster mentioned.

    We were 18th in the number of pressures given up, our overall pass blocking ranking was lower, though. (For example, an OLman could get beaten, but have the FB/RB clean up the defender before it counted as a pressure, thus saving a "pressure" from being counted, yet still counting as a "loss" in the OL grading).

    I don't give a **** how good SF's front 7 is, the beating the OL allowed them to give Eli was inexcusable. Sure, it's the most glaring example of how poor they've played, but it isn't completely an outlier, either.

    However, no matter how you slice it or dice it, the OL can use a major upgrade and is nowhere near a top-10 line, or even an adequate line.

    Giants have spent money on the Oline and some of the moves havent worked out that well. Now u just cant keep spending into oblivion to fix it there is a cap.U have to balance the money and here is your choice. Do u spend money on Mike Iupati or do u spend it on Victor Cruz. Now lets factor in a league where u cant hit QB's,cant hit WR's and RB's cant lower their helmets. Its a balancing act and the FO has proved to be up to the task.

    The one thing I didn't like was Baas' restructure this year. To me it just seemed like throwing good money after bad.
