    We've had an OK offseason so far I guess, but....

    We have not improved in the area where we were BY FAR the weakest last season: offensive line.

    So I struggle to call this a good offseason to this point. Let's see what happens in the draft, but all signs point to us being really bad on the O line again.

    Is that a good offseason?

    Not to sound like a total downer but I never really get worked up about personnel during the draft or offseason. I used to.I have had high hopes and been disappointed too often and my rule of thumb is wait till they get on the field. Show me something. I get sick of all the talk and hype. Preseason usually gives you a little idea of what you are in store for with your newbies. But as far as speculation goes....shut your mouths till you get on the field.

    Fair enough. I see your point of view, but I would still like to see the team attempt to address real areas of need in the offseason. Between McAdoo basically deflecting attention away from the O line and putting it on Eli, and then Reese not really doing anything in free agency of any note, I'm disappointed as a fan.

    Last offseason we had huge needs on defense, and I felt like they were addressed. As a result, our D was vastly improved and it turned us into a playoff team.

    Now, to get to the next level, we need players who can run block and play the tackle position better. Have we done that in this offseason? No.

    It's disappointing in that sense. I know we have done some other good things, but I just don't see how this can be called a good offseason so far when we have not addressed the O line apart from signing DJ Fluker, a player who was discarded by the Chargers, who had probably the worst O line in the league last year.

    Its almost as if they are setting Eli up to fail,eh? I know, its a disgrace. And McAdoo went about things all wrong....Coughlin, Parcells, or Reeves would have put the blame on the team as a whole including themselves rather than call out the QB. As much as Eli pisses me off and makes his boneheaded moves I will never believe or say that it is one individuals fault. There are other reasons why you are where you are at.

    It's a good offseason because they did the best they could with the cap space they had so far.
    Engage brain before speaking.

    Whitworth is still a high quality left tackle. PFF graded his signing an A. With Eli at the end of the line we could have gotten this guy and it would have solved our problems at LT. Are we looking at a trade for Joe Thomas?

    I don't know about you but I think Reese should be doing all in his power to give Eli the best chance possible at getting a third ring. In not addressing the O line, which was a massive problem last year, Reese is failing Eli in this regard.

    Who should the Giants have signed as an FA OL? IMO, they were all overpriced and glad the Ginats did not pay them

    Whitworth.

    The real answer to all of this is they should have drafted Tunsil when they had the chance. Unfortunately they were scared off because the guy did a bong hit in high school.

    Good move there. How can anyone ever trust or respect someone who tried weed in high school? God forbid...

    3 years 36 million is a lot for a 35 year old tackle. I don't think that is a great use of cap, but that's my opinion. time will tell.
