Giants’ O-Line in for a rough go vs Lions

John Fennelly, Lead Writer

We’ve stated our case for the offensive line not being as bad as the current public perception of them, which is awful. We’ll admit, they aren’t very good on paper, but we’re willing to give them the benefit the doubt until they live up – or down – to their billing.

An injury to the group’s most prestigious player – LG Geoff Schwartz – has left them even more vulnerable. The current starting line has one rookie (Weston Richburg), one second-year player (Justin Pugh) and three veteran players (Will Beatty, Brandon Mosley and JD Walton) who are still trying to gel as a unit.

As the Giants’ attempt to get their new offense off the ground, the unit will be under the microscope as they line up to face some of the league’s top defensive lines. The Giants were able to run the football with relative authority in the preseason, but the pass protection has been spotty.

Loudmouths Adam Schein and Chris Carlin discuss the problems facing the Giants’ offensive line in their Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions.

I love the hundreds of beat writers, announcers and all media talking about the problems the Giants have on their offensive line....These concerns and comments coming from people who have never played the game at a high level and some who have and think they have a crystal ball. 

"Loudmouths Adam Schein and Chris Carlin discuss the problems facing the Giants’ offensive line in their Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions."

How do any of you media guru's know if the Giants have problems with the offensive line?....I get sick and tired of reading and hearing about the problems the Giants are facing when a real game hasn't even been played yet. Write about the results not the unknown.

This is a sentence that  makes my stomach churn as a fan.  Beyond the O-line, the Giants are sorely lacking in stars.  I fully get it is a team sport, but I'd certainly like to know going in we have a few pro-bowlers on the team.

@hashburry When do the NYG ever have a lot of pro-bowlers. In the 2007 and 2011 SB years, they sent like 1 or 2 guys to the pro-bowl. Having a lot of stars is not how the Giants roll. They never have. When they win, it's because they get hot as a team.
