John Schmeelk talks to the Offensive line players .....

Manny in CA : 7/3/2024 8:30 pm

Excellent interview, what stood out for me (mostly about Carmen Bricillo) -

https://www.giants.com/video/giants-huddle-offensive-line

1. Great teacher, tells you what needs to be done and how to do it, and why ....

2. Lets you be yourself, once you understand #1, if your technique is better

3. Emphasizes understanding the whole offense and what each player's role is.

It was noted that Carmen worked under the Pat's O-line genius Dante Scarnecchia.
Neal says he will be ready for the start of training camp

After AT went down, I trusted none of the OLmen, 0 for 5.

After a full off season and a knowledge of what is needed, I trust JMS.....which has me trusting 4 of the 5 OLmen.

Neal is only one that still concerns me.
This is great

I really like Schmeelk, and it's really cool to get a good close look at all of these guys individually. Wasn't sure what to expect with Eleumenor but wow, he seems super impressive to me. Hope these guys can finally give us a respectable OL.
he did a version of this with wide receivers that is excellent

JS did a lot but not nearly enough with the offensive line.
Thomas is a great player but often injured or playing hurt.
Neal has never been healthy and is coming off surgery.
Runyon and Eleumoneur were great pick-ups but there is no depth.
Stinne was brought in at about the vet minimum. Bobby Skinner review was that he is not as good as Bredeson, who got a much better contract. Nelson is coming off ankle surgery and was not ready for OTA. Chances are good that with all of the injuries in the NFL we will see Jones behind Ezeudu, Mckethan or some UDFA again this year.
My own sanity

Is predicated on the interior. I swear on everything holy if the guards on this team still insist on stinking I give up. Center is key as well but the guards have a track record of playing well, elsewhere. If they suck here I’m taking up long walks and water painting on Sundays

Or Lock/Devito for that matter.

Cajuste is penciled in as backup RT

I think he could get the job done. But, so far in his career he has had a problem staying healthy.
Hopefully he’s just not comfortable in front of the camera

But JMS really seemed to struggle to formulate his thoughts into words there. Everyone says he’s very intelligent but considering a Center needs to take command of the offensive front and properly communicate the looks and any adjustments, I don’t know.

After watching Cosell’s take on him and this interview, I think I underestimated how big of a role JMS had in the front’s struggles last year and as a result, I’ve overestimated his natural improvement in year two. If this kid falters, we’re relying on Schlottman(sp)?
If a DT goes across the face of an interior lineman

to tackle a back in the backfield on an off tackle play to the other side of the field again this year, I will believe we're cursed.
