Don't think the Giants can go all out like the 9ers did (or the NY Jets in 06) but OL is a need. Defense unfortunately is aging as well but if one of the stud G's is available, IMO, it's time to pull the trigger.
    Yea, i remember Mangold and D'Brick...that draft helped the Jets gets to the superbowl and made them a playoff team for a while, even when they lost Kareem Mc Kenzie. I thought Shonn Greenes rookie year was phenonmenal one of the best, he was never quite the same. You could say New England tried that route as well, with Nate Solder, he's worked out, looks good at LT, even Indy with Anthony Castanzo.

    1st - guys been in the league a year cant say he sucks yet.
    2nd - My point is teams with elite QBs do bolster their OL to help their starters not just teams with s*it QBs to help their run game

    Eli with time to throw can make anyone a star receiver. Even Barden.

    Drafting OL isn't just for the running game you know... those guys also protect the QB from pass rushers.

    I think he meant something like one game short of the SB two years in a row.

    Thats what you have to do when you need your offensive foundation to be the running game, because they had very poor QB play.

    Same as the Jets dumping multiple high picks into their OL.

    Now compare that to the Colts with Manning, or the Saints with Brees. Both got to the SB with no high draft picks on the OL (maybe 1 here or there)

    That's true .... however our most dominant team was also when our Oline was the most dominant (2008).

    Super Bowl victories aside, we're at our strongest when our OL is at its strongest (offensively).

    That and we've seen collapses from both the Colts and Saints due specifically to neglecting their lines (both offensive and defensive).
