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.
