Baas injury has Giants shuffling the line

An injury in the middle of the Giants’ offensive line is going to create a change on the edge.

With center David Baas on the shelf with an MCL sprain, the Giants are going to shuffle things.

According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the plan is to shift guard Kevin Boothe to center, and then move veteran right tackle David Diehl inside to guard to make room for rookie Justin Pugh to play right tackle.

Diehl took a pay cut this offseason, then saw the team use a first-round pick for his eventual replacement, which probably made a move to guard inevitable.

    Giants always seem to have a ton of o-line depth. It’s hard to get hits on Eli and he is the king of the duck and chuck when there is pressure.

    This is the line that should be starting anyway. Diehl simply can’t play outside anymore.

    Eli is good at avoiding sacks and he has Tiki to thank for that. Without Tiki being heroic and carrying the Giants on his shoulders for so many years, poor little Eli would never have been able to develop into a man. You haters never want to admit that and you blast Tiki for his divorce when he was really a great husband.

    I’m realistic. I know 6-10 will be a good record for the Giants this year so let the rebuilding begin. Clean house.

    Things are going to get real real ugly if another guy goes down. Everyone hold their breath.

    With Gumby playing QB does it really matter?

    If that were true, I’d come out of retirement and start for your team immediately.
