J D Walton against Pitt and Oak in 2012 


If he stays healthy, I think he could become the best OC the Giants have had in a long time.

Thanks for posting Gordon.   I am pretty excited about what JD could do this year if he stays healthy.  I also love that we can take our time with Richburg and potentially even have some great depth at such a critical spot.

Hope he can do the same job here seems to hold his ground well.One thing that stands out is how much faster Peyton gets rid of the ball compared to Eli.

If he is able to stay healthy, big if, and he is as good as we think he can be, that makes you wonder what happens with Richburg. Richburg was drafted to be the Giants starting center. He's not here for depth or maybe to start at guard, he's a center and they want him at center. So what happens if Walton is really good this year?

I'm not criticizing, I'm literally just asking what they do. Walton is under contract this year and next, but next year his salary is $2.5M which his not a lot for a starting center. Do they expect a talent like Richburg to sit on the bench for two whole years?

Good teams rely on their stars,
Great teams rely on each other.

None of us, even the Giants doctors, know whether Walton's ankle is 1) going to hold up to the rigors of a full NFL season and/or 2) whether that ankle will impact his play. Giants didn't have a choice. They had draft Richburg. If Walton can play, and play well - a very big "if", imho - I am sure Richburg will get his chance to cover for an injury somewhere else on the line before too long. This line is far from being solid.

From what I have read, Beatty is doing well so far in camp, but he also has an injury now (here we go again!). Beatty seems to always have an injury of some sort...and he's 29! That is not young for an NFL player. Wasn't he just drafted in 2009?

Anyways, if Beatty can play well, that secures LT (there's basically no backup there as Brown is atrocious). LG and RT are solid and we don't have to worry about them (as long as they stay healthy). Center and right guard are the question marks. If Walton and Mosley play well that makes a huge difference. Basically if all the starters stay healthy, the line should be okay. But that never happens. Eventually there will be injuries and backups are going to have to play.

Good teams rely on their stars,
Great teams rely on each other.

Beatty left the field yesterday because he did not feel well.  He was not injured.  The report that he hurt is hand was not correct.

Thanks for clearing that up Gordon. I feel better now knowing he wasn't injured. He is vital to this team this season.

Maybe a little off topic but to add to what leagued mentioned about Beatty, if Coach Mc brings a lot of Packers philosophy with him ,their team uses a lot of b.o.b. blocking schemes . B.o.b  abbreviates back on backer blocking and the tight end chips along with the play side t/e.The Packer do their chips a little different in the fact that it starts off as a combo block playside ,tackle and t/e,if the player being chipped takes a rushing lane that runs himself out of the play the t/e releases,if the tackle needs the help the t/e stays with the double team  if not he goes to next level to check on back vs lb block and helps if needed.This should help the tackles quite a bit in assuring positive yardage plays.
