think Pugh would be worst than Lemieux or McKethan. McKethan
looked pretty good his first game, but not since. Lemieux was an absolute joke last night.

how did they not KNOW that these players couldn't block? Most of these guys have been here for 2 years now. They have been practicing here for 2 years now.

I am not even talking about Neal as he's probably still worth a few more games since he was such a high pick. EVERYONE else?

Fans don't know because we aren't there in practice every day. The staff should have seen last night coming.

Why do I even care anymore. Fucking team has destroyed my love for the game.

The next time someone here says the NFL product isn't that good anymore I will remind them it aint the NFL that sucks. It's this fucking franchise. THEY suck. That's why you don't want to watch anymore.


Wow! I can't disagree with a thing here. How the hell can the people who are paid to know these things not see what is clearly incompetence at a level not seen in the pros?

It is independent of JMS. This was in the works since last week.

Couldn’t agree more. It’s been a poorly run franchise for awhile.

That said I still believe in Schoen, they need to get the QB right
Had to be an interesting night for him.

Collins is still hurt. They could sign him right now and he couldn't help them until who knows when. Bengals cut him off PUP.


Collins passed a physical according to Pro Football Rumors quoting ESPN.

"Former Bengals’ OT La’el Collins, who missed training camp on the active/PUP list while rehabbing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament, passed his physical today with Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Collins expected to soon find work."

More than 10 teams have contacted him. My guess is he wants more money and would probably take longer to get game ready. He also has had a back issue that required "maintenance" all last season.

Schoen has not been the impressive. Seems pretty ordinary.
Hopefully this is because Lemieux is out for some time  
BlueHurricane : 10/3/2023 1:16 pm : link
And not JMS. Lemieux hurt his abductor in the game too.

I know the sky is falling but the O-Line is the biggest issue by far. Need AT back. Ezudu back to G. Hopefully JMS back and they can hopefully start to get some consistency.

The Giants dominated the first quarter and then lost JMS and everything went to shit.

After last night's game, a bunch of you were yelling they better get Justin Pugh in here ASAP. They do it, and you mock the move. Make up your minds!!
At least they're acting  
HBart : 10/3/2023 2:34 pm : link
Pugh was cleared to return at about the same time Hausnauer was hurt (BTW I recall BBI Eric saying Hausnauers injury might be bigger than we think). The Giants decided to sign Harlow to replace him instead.

Minimizing adjectives, obviously the OL plan failed disastrously.

One more reasonably competent OL might do the trick and stabilize things before it's too late, although if the injured guys aren't back next week it already is to too late.

Better than standing pat.

We need to rest A.T. and JMS until they are 110% healthy even if it's for the rest of the year. No rushing players back, it's been a problem for years. Let them rest and let us lose.

He’s played it for the Giants before, however I believe he was used mostly at Guard for the Cardinals. Either way, he was never a bad lineman, more on the average side, but it was his injuries that everyone was getting tired of. That said, I think he’s been available more then Lemieux which isn’t saying much. He’ll be an experienced voice however in the room.
We cant evaluate even our own players  
kelly : 10/3/2023 3:32 pm : link
We went into the draft and free agency thinking this o line was going to be solid?

Neal had shown nothing
No center on the team
McKethan missed his first year
Lemieux was always hurt and terrible when played
Peart was always terrible
Ezeudu had done nothing
Bredeson showed a little

I mean somehow Schoen thought be had the makings of a solid line.¹what does that say about Schoens ability to judge talent.

Simply horrible
people rave about versatility  
bc4life : 10/3/2023 3:44 pm : link
also a lot to be said for allowing youngsters to develop at one position.

Pugh signed  
Cheech d : 10/3/2023 3:59 pm : link
Right after the 49rs game I posted we should consider moving Neal to Guard and sign Pugh and Collins in order to give us a chance moving forward.
We signed Pugh but obviously that’s not enough to fix this mess.
I’m pissed we didn’t make these moves on our mini bye.
La'el Collins isn't good anymore. He's just a name.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 10/3/2023 4:33 pm : link
The Bengals had no use for him and they suck at OL. He's toast.

The problem is that our OL probably doesn't look so bad in practice. After all, they're only being asked to block our defense, which doesn't appear to be a huge challenge even for backup OLs (as we saw last night).

They only practice 90 minutes. That's part of the problem any team with developing players has.

Dave on the UWS : 10/3/2023 7:49 pm : link
Look what Seattle did last night. Backups at 4 of 5 OL positions and they could still run an offense.
Players on ours are regressing, not progressing. What they are being taught must be counter intuitive to what they’ve done in the past. Glowinski falls off a cliff at 31? Neal works his ass off in the off season and is now WORSE than his rookie year. To me, logically, it has to be Bobby Johnson. This organization hasn’t been able to hire 1 good OL coach for 10 plus years. It can’t be they whiffed on EVERY guy (AT excepted and Columbo almost ruined him).
How much more does Daboll need to see to realize the guy needs to be replaced.
Shit

Again, he passed a physical with his doc last week and has been cleared to practice. It will likely take him much longer to get game ready and he will probably cost more.
