Top 5 NYG O-line since 2008

UK Giants Fan : 2/8/2019 9:04 am
Seen a few threads on top 5 all time giants and other similar such topics, I was wondering, what is your "fantasy" o-line since 2008 superbowl, basically anyone except McKenzie, Seubert, O'Hara, Snee and Diehl.

You can ignore injury history.

I would go

RT Locklear
Gutted when he got injured, looked steady

RG Pugh
Could slot him in anywhere, he was so versatile, don't feel he ever lived up to a 1st round draft pick though

C Jones
I liked his story, rooted for him since he signed from CFL)

LG Hernandez
Nice to see a young hog-mollie in there

LT Beatty
Thought he was gonna be a solid 2nd round pick, had a good season or two but seemed to lose all motivation

I am sure names will be suggested an I will change my top 5, but it gets the discussion going
I can see why our OL sucks

An awful group
It is a very tough task to think of players

Bass, Flowers, Richburg, Wheeler, Brewer, Schartz, Jerry, Newhouse.... I think every name except for Hernandez made me grimace. Solder could make the list and maybe Brown.
Baas was superior to Jones

And by a very wide margin.
And even with only half a good season  
BillT : 2/8/2019 9:39 am : link
Solder is better than Beatty.
Why would you eliminate Snee, McKenzie, Seubert, Diehl, O'Hara?  
nyjuggernaut2 : 2/8/2019 9:40 am : link
Those were clearly the Giants top OL in the last ten years.

Why not just start the list from 2013, when those guys were gone?

Just thinking of piecing together

The "best" OL combined over the last 6 years makes me want to puke. This is a good exercise in showing just how bad the talent has been for Eli to work with. Couple that with the running back talent he has had in that same time span (pre-Barkley) and it gets even uglier.
Ugh...  
BamaBlue : 2/8/2019 10:00 am : link
not the 'best' by any stretch. This is an exercise to find the 'least bad' offensive line combination.

How about the tight end "talent"? Or the receiver talent outside of Beckham?

The 2015 roster was arguably worse than the 2017 Browns if you took away Eli and Beckham.
Tough to name starters from among career backups and “almosts”  
Ivan15 : 2/8/2019 10:12 am : link
It I liked Locklear. Shame he got hurt.

Newhouse was better than those who succeeded him.

I would have preferred Jerry at RG over anyone else they tried in 2018.

It often gets mentioned how many weapons Eli has had over the past few years, but when have they actually all been on the field together for any stretch of time?

Cruz and OBJ were never on the field for long together at their peaks.

OBJ has been injured for long stretches twice now in the past 2 years and in his first year missed the first four games.

Engram missed 5 games last year.

Shepard missed 5 games two years ago.

Is this a joke?

Because if so, it is very funny.

That's what I was thinking too. This is like "The Greatest Hits of Lawrence Welk" or something.
I'd go Solder, Hernandez, O'Hara, Snee, MacKenzie.  
yatqb : 2/8/2019 11:27 am : link
And I'd be quite happy to go into battle with that OL.

That line wins a Superbowl for sure. Barkley would have the first 3000 yard season in NFL history. I think being quite happy is an understatement.
Comparing careers you'd take Solder over Beatty  
widmerseyebrow : 2/8/2019 12:10 pm : link
But peak Beatty vs 2018 Solder is debatable.

Yes. Baas wasn't bad at all, he just was hardly ever 100%.
Wow  
jogo1 : 2/8/2019 1:37 pm : link
I'm not sure this OL would even be league average.
I would rather go in the breakroom...

...and eat the oldest item in the fridge than review who the best Giant linemen were over the last decade.

Actually, it's the same exact exercise.
Such a silly question...  
EricJ : 2/8/2019 4:00 pm : link
it is like asking which girl with a mustache is best looking
Kevin Boothe did a good job for us  
GeorgeAdams33 : 2/8/2019 6:32 pm : link
Played Center & LG and was not bad at either. Failed early on at RT, but held his own inside.
Thread reminds of that joke from movie Airplane  
Jimmy Googs : 2/8/2019 6:39 pm : link
when the passenger asks for something light to read.

And the flight attendant says how about this pamphlet on Famous Jewish Sports Legends...
This is disturbing  
eric2425ny : 2/9/2019 8:55 am : link
I think the point of the post was to be positive, but man, no wonder our offense has sucked so bad the last ten years. Outside of Hernandez who needs some time before judging him, this is a real collection of turds.
This is why Reese sucked  
LauderdaleMatty : 2/9/2019 10:49 am : link
Kyle Long could have been had over Pugh. At least Pugh was anstsrret level player.
Max Unger instead of Clint Sintim
David Wilson Over Cordly Glenn.
Either Ramzcyck or Cam Robinson Over Engram.

Reese and or Ross passed on guys early in his tenure that would have been much better that what he grabbed later. Beatty was handed the job and very mediocre. Unger and Ramzcyck huge part of the Saints line. Reese is a scout. Not a GM. His early success was a fools gold
