    Actually the G - C - G graded outstanding in pass-pro.

    the starting 5 on the OL is already on the roster.

    No, it was a massive need that had to be addressed. The Giants HAD to acquire a big dynamic receiver.

    The G - C - G are the most important pass-blockers in this scheme. NOT the tackles.
    Lol, yeah, the tackle protecting Eli's blind side is less important than every other position on the O line.

    The foundation of McAdoo's passing offense is the firm inside pocket.

    Of course you did start a thread the other day about how terrible Justin Pugh is, so this makes total sense.

    How long have you been studying Madden?

    Luckily, the G - C - G are blocking 2 DTs. 3-on-2, so either the LG or RG will be 1-on-1.

    McAdoo likes to slide the line left so his scheme requires a great pass-blocking RG who doesn't need help.

    Hypothetically, if the Giants drop back to pass 40 times, 32 times Richburg will slide left (John Jerry 1-on-1), 5 times Richburg will slide right (Pugh 1-on-1), and 3 times he will stay put (pick up blitz up the middle)





    "The reality is, most left guards should grade out higher than right guards," Former Patriots guard Ross Tucker wrote for Sports Illustrated. "Most teams are 'right-handed,' meaning they often put the strength of the offensive formation to the right side rather than the left. As a result, most slide protections—a zone scheme in which three linemen block two defenders—go to the left, which is customarily the quarterback’s blindside. This means the right guard on most teams has a tougher job because he’s tasked with more one-on-one pass blocking assignments than the left guard."

    The above statement DIRECTLY applies to McAdoo's scheme and how he slides his protection.

    I reluctantly have to agree at this point but hold out hope that there is still time to upgrade
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!
