    so? i take it you watch giants games and your plenty wrong on several aspects related to them.

    Pitt's OL was better, markedly even, than our OL.

    Agreed....but he didn't have a choice. For the first 6 games, the entire team was like a flaming bag of dog crap. It sucked that he had to try to put his team on his back again, like 2011.

    The major difference was that the team was 2 years older and more run down than in 2011. His biggest passing weapon, Nicks, was a basket case this year. His blindside protector, Beatty, had an atrocious season. The defense's biggest star, JPP, was a shadow of himself. Reese let a very good tight end walk, and replaced him with a guy that couldn't block to save his life. The interior of the line was weak and porous, their best lineman was a rookie. They went through 4 starting runningbacks, until they were literally signing guys off the street, like Hillis.

    Everyone has beaten this topic to death, so the only thing I'll say is that Eli had a bad season, and I can totally understand how that happened.

    Sounds to me like McAdoo is going to take an extremely detailed look at this team, and rebuild the offense from the ground up based on what he has to work with.....and that's exactly what he'll need to do given the the half-*** job our GM has done over the past several years.

    Bens 30 couple more attempts would have nothing to do with those 3 more sacks either.

    Maybe if Eli didn't throw a bunch of INTs & four and outs he would have more attempts?

    Sorry, I thought we were talking about sacks. My mistake

    I thought the debate in which I was responding to was about who had a worse OL. I was trying to point out that only 3 more sacks with over 30 more attempts did not mean that Ben had a worse OL. And you're right. 4 and outs, not sure how many of those they had and more INTs proves that Ben had a worse OL than Eli. My mistake.
