Can't believe he's gonna get another Super Bowl ring.

He's healthy enough to play?  
Ralph.C : 11/14/2017 4:01 pm : link
If so, he should have been signed weeks ago.
I'd have thought  
mrvax : 11/14/2017 4:05 pm : link
that if Beatty was in good football shape, the Giants would have signed him.

Let's see how he's used with the Eagles. If he's good, Reese should be ashamed.

I still can't understand

why he never got on the field last year. I can't believe that he was worse than what they trotted out there every week.

It's hard to imagine even at right tackle he wouldn't have added more value. What type of shape must he had been in, which again begs the question why was he on the roster.

Has it occurred to you he did not want to come back here after he resigned last year and never played?

the Philly armour. It's going to start coming apart
He's appeared in all of six games since 2014

And wasn't all that great then. BFD.

Because the "young, ascending" tackles needed all the practice reps, and your swing tackle was the left guard, I'd say.

Eric Winston got signed off the couch last week. So many OL'men on IR or PUP this year teams are in desperation mode.
I mean, there are a lot of teams that have needed OL help  
Greg from LI : 11/14/2017 4:59 pm : link
And the Giants are the only team in the last two years who actually signed him. That would seem to indicate that he's not going to be good.

If he does go to the Eagles and plays lights out, is that bad on McAdoo or Reese?

Both, but Mac would seem more culpable, no? It'd mean he has a major problem evaluating OL talent, especially given the shifting they've done all year and mixed results.
I will be absolutely floored if that happens  
Greg from LI : 11/14/2017 5:12 pm : link
Reese/McAdoo notwithstanding, nobody wanted him. He was there for anyone's taking last season and only the Giants wanted him. Same this season - available to any team, but no one gave him a call until the Eagles had a bunch of injuries.

This is a desperation signing. They're hoping and praying that he is at least adequate.
I may tune in

an Eagles game if Beatty is starting. Very interesting.
Championship!

LOL. Who cares.

Mark your calendar for Dec. 17th. If Beatty has one more game left in him, I'd bet that one game will be his best performance of his career. It would only be appropriate.
Please nobody has wanted him

And football hasn't been a priority for him.

He should be ashamed for making the current mess, especially at OL.

That last line is EXACTLY why we need to go OL, even at 1 or 2 spot. At least 25 teams NEED one young lineman, or more; we may need up to 4. Teams are going to move around just for one, even after FA. WE can't afford the FAs worth FA $$.
Unless the OLs coming out dump on the Sealy at the Combine, we need to do whatever to grab 1.
Or else our replacement for Eli better be a sprinter.
