the "realist" is a lazy piece of crap that works on his tan while sipping a margarita,
the pessimist changes the sails while complaining about the lazy piece of crap,
and the optimist changes the sails while hoping the lazy piece of crap will start to do his share of the work.
Diehl is the veteran and it should be his to lose. If Pugh is ready to start in his 1st season, then he'll show it and the Giants will probably give it to him because he will have earned it.
