Baas got pushed around tonight and in my opinion is a major reason why we have failed to run the ball effectively this year. He is average in pass protection and below average at getting leverage / opening holes in the run game. He seems like a nice enough guy, but we need a mauling center who can push people around. This is NYG football, we need to run the ball!
It is beyond obvious when Petrus came in at LG and Boothe shifted to center that we played better overall. If we as fans can notice the difference, then you know Reese has to see it. If we fail to make changes next year it's because Reese has too much pride to admit the Baas signing was a poor one.
