Same weak O-line

nicky43 : 8/11/2017 10:13 pm
I know, I know it's just the first pre-season game and the o-line needs to gel yet. Sure but all that great eye candy we added to the team wasn't able to do much with all the sacks and hurries the o-line gave up.

I'm just not going to fool myself into thinking the o-line will be any better this year so I don't end up being disappointed by expectations too high.

That said, go GIANTS!

A couple of those sacks

Bisnowaty & Wheeler are not going to help the giants this year

to judge by the 1st game. Rushers went by them like a swinging door giving the QB no time to get set.

I agree with a lot that has already been said about them. They need to get in the weight room and put on some flesh. They are clearly not used to NFL speed & power.

I am afraid we are stuck with the same OL as last year. Oi veh!

Ellison & Ingram look like nice additions & will help diversify the attack. Rudolf looks like a multitool player and is a keeper.

Devon Taylor looked like Kiwanuka on steroids. His long legs help him cover a lot of ground. I think we got a good one.

And, when was the last time you saw a NY Giant 50 yd field goal that cleared the bar by 20 -30 feet. I sure hope Rosas is for real. He could be a great weapon with that powerful leg.
Doesnt this

We have time to fix it I suppose. I hope our OL coach is scanning the waiver wire though because like everyone else, I have my doubts. I almost hate to say this, but even Richburgh concerns me. It looked to me like the he and Jerry were getting run over. Did anyone else see that, or was I just imagining it?
useless comment , you cant rate anyone's play

without Eli behind center.
The O-line needs to "gel"...

They don't know each other from playing together last year for all those games??

The continuity was supposedly an asset from the optimists on BBI...

I thought FLowers played pretty well last night

He didn't get beat once from what I could see, and I had recorded the game so I was able to slow it down and rewind. There was one miss communication early on, but I'm not sure who on the OL was responsible. IMO Flowers looked improved.
