Scouting The Worst New York Giants Offensive Players

I’ll cut right to the chase. According to Pro Football Focus, the 10 worst offensive NY Giants are by name and rank:

105worst-offense

For some of these guys – they are nearly the worst in the league for their respective positions. David Diehl is the fifth worst offensive lineman in the NFL. Brandon Meyers is the third worst tight end in the league. Snee is on IR. And TE Larry Donnell, while slightly better than Meyers has barely played. In short – the Giants have no answer at TE right now. I don’t know if you’ve noticed the trend in the league where TE’s are utilized in the passing game more and more to create matchup advantages, the Giants haven’t. And yet the JPP of TE’s – Adrian Robinson – continues to remain on the roster and has accrued no playing time since week 2 of the preseason because of a foot injury. That’s a roster spot that could have been used to sign an offensive lineman like Sean Locklear — who was just swooped up by the Falcons the other day. Meanwhile, PFF HAS OUR ENTIRE OL IN THE RED!!

Given that fact, I’m not surprised to see Eli Manning right next to them. Alarm bells are ringing, yet I feel like they’ve fallen of deaf ears when it comes to the Giants organization. We made great defensive moves this year, the offense has been completely abandoned it seems like. No OL, no TE’s to block or catch, and the RB carousel just now — after 9 weeks of football played — is just starting to look like we have something to speak of.

The area this team has to improve on most, and we’ve been beating this drum all season and preseason — the offensive line and tight end position has GOT to be addressed this offseason.

  1. Ok, long time diehard giants fan here from back when they played in my.I’ve stood by eli many times since his draft and he a lot of times got a tongue lashing when he didn’t deserve it, but as we stand here 3-6, he should of been benched after game 2, he already had 6 or 7 int on the books.it would of taken him off the franchise quarterback pedestal he’s on.I know the line has somewhat a role in this but, eli don’t run, he’s sits in the pocket till the last second, gets nervous abt getting hit and lets it fly.how many times have u seen eli just fall to the turf in lu of getting hit.cmon coach coughlin your better then that….put painter in, he can’t do no worse….then eli…

    • I don’t agree – as Eli does give them the best chance to win. Early on, it wasn’t that Eli was JUST the victim of collateral damage (OL, RB, TE not blocking well) it’s that the scheme was to exploit weak secondary over the top. Problem was, he didn’t have time to complete a 5-7 step drop. Since going 0-6 they’ve adjusted to the short game more and more, and you’ve seen them move the ball better, get first downs, and stretch out the defense. the run game has also come along and Hillis, Jacobs, and Brown are better pass protectors. The OL has played pretty poorly all along, they may be just starting to gel. one can hope. Meyers should have been benched week 2 not Eli. Diehl too.
