I'm not expecting much, they seem pretty happy with the current group. I think they want young guys; but, if a really good vet was still sitting there in mid-July, maybe, if the price is right. I really think they're looking at 2022 and beyond, so they want those young guys on rookie contracts.
I think the game plan is to let these young guys develop. Maybe if there are a few major injuries (pray not) we may see a guy signed. Other then that I don’t think so
I guess Im not thinking long term. I just hope were good enough to allow DJ some time in the pocket. Last year was awful for him. A lot of improvement is expected from this group. The pass protection is what im concerned about. I think this could be our year we turn this thing around.
Slightly off topic, but an interesting insight into the 2021 Giants middle of the Giants offensive line...
I'm in a 'show me' state of mind about the Giants offensive line. Pretty clear to me that the Giants were comfortable with the line that finished last season. They didn't address OL in the draft and didn't dip heavily in the free agent market. Is optimism warranted...? Sure, there's real evidence of a learning curve (experience) and the team has invested in more offensive weapons. Is pessimism warranted...? Sure, we may have the same guys out there on the OL and why should we expect different results? We won't know what we have this year, until the season starts. Anyone who speaks in absolutes (IMHO), is not looking hard enough. I found some reasons for optimism from the article at the link about Hernanez' work with Duke Manyweather.
Hernandez is going to be one of the critical links in the success (or failure) of the Giants offensive line. He's been a disappointment after his rookie season and he's in a make-or-break situation this year. Hernandez will be moved to RG (replacing Zeitler) and Shane Lemieux will become the starting LG. The 'hope' is that Lemieux will build on his experience from last season and Gates will continue to improve after transition from 'swiss army knife' to full-time center.
In the NFL and in life, hard work is always appreciated. However, it's results that get rewards. I think the hard work and dedication to improve is evident. Will the results follow... we'll see.
AmaniToomerToeDrag: Wouldn't it be so 2020 for the Giants to not only make the playoffs, but to pull off the greatest playoff push in NFL history? Beat the Bills in the Super Bowl. One could dream. Speaking of Dream, what a stud that Daniel Jones is at QB. 😉Later Haters😉
