    I tend to be thankful that this may be JR's first flub on a first round pick. Lord knows his 2nd and 3rds have not been great. Despite our inconsistencies, we don't have much to complain about.

    I don't see how you can say that when none of the guys you have in mind have even played in a preseason game.

    He's been in camp for 4 days and he's already being talked about as a flub of a pick?

    Yeah, the Giants have a habit of leaning on banged up veterans (see: Tuck, Bradshaw).

    Diehl got injured, sat out a few weeks, and then wanted to play again.....coaches played him, it was obvious he still wasn't 100%....and then they put Locklear back in, until Locklear went down with a severe injury.

    ".....

    It’s now been two games since Diehl slid from guard to tackle, where he played most of the previous four seasons, to bail out the Giants after Will Beatty suffered a detached retina.

    In those games, the Giants have scored 59 total points, have allowed only two sacks after giving up an average of two per game the first 11 weeks and have run for 4.1 yards per carry, including an 11-yard gain behind Diehl and Jake Ballard against the Green Bay Packers.

    As always with the offensive line, it’s about more than Diehl. But having him at a key position has helped a battered unit, and this weekend, he’ll be facing the league’s leading sacker and an old nemesis in DeMarcus Ware.

    Good thing for him he took the time to get comfortable.

    “You’re doing stuff practicing, but there’s nothing like that game speed, playing in that atmosphere,” Diehl said. “That second half, it was just getting back to being comfortable, getting back to taking your sets.

    “And when you do it on the road, it ain’t the easiest thing, especially playing in the Superdome. It’s loud and crazy and it’s a silent count half the time in your first game.”

    It was a little easier this past Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Diehl gave up zero sacks and, by an unofficial count, only two pressures on 41 pass plays. Meanwhile, he made life easier for left guard Mitch Petrus in his first NFL start and also helped Cordle along when he served as a tight end.

    “You can’t screw up if you listen to David Diehl,” Petrus said. “He’s going to make the right call.”

    ...."
    Diehl sucked so bad, that following this article, the Giants went on to win 3 of their last 4 regular season games and then a playoff run ending with their 2nd Super Bowl with him at left tackle.

    Clearly, though Flaherty doesn't have a clue, and neither does Coughlin. Let's start the kid would hasn't played a down over a 2 time Super Bowl Champion veteran.

    Trust me, we were all talking about him as a flub of a pick two seconds after they made the pick.

    I do like the use of the word "flub" though. Its not often used on the Giants MB.
    Get well soon 80.

    That all depends what your expectations were for our #1 draft selection.
