Giants will be without 40 percent of O-line

New York Giants quarterback Manning pulls himself off the ground after being tackled against the Carolina Panthers during an NFL football game in Charlotte Reuters

If the Giants are going to avoid an 0-4 start, they’re going to have to do it without at least three starters.

The team announced that center David Baas and guard Chris Snee are officially out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs, along with cornerback Corey Webster.

To make matters worse, veteran blocker David Diehl is doubtful, leaving the Giants scrambling for a combination of blockers hoping to improve on last week’s seven sacks allowed.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin wouldn’t say how he’d configure that line, such that he has a lot of options.

    Eli just soiled himself.

    Good thing Jerry Reese realized 80 percent of his line was over 30 and has built them with quality depth….. Oh wait a minute

    Picked up the Chiefs’ D on waivers earlier this week. Thank goodness for dumb friends!

    WOW Not even worth making fun of that sorry team

  5. bassman982013 says: Sep 27, 2013 2:03 PM

    Coughlin needs to protect Eli by playing Curtis Painter until the line regroups.

    they can’t do any worse. brewer should of been starting anyway.

  7. jamesefallen says: Sep 27, 2013 2:12 PM

    How is that a bad thing?

    I hope the Chiefs D give no sympathy towards the Giants ongoing O-Line problems.

    Go Chiefs!! Red Friday!!

    They told Coughlin that he’d be missing 40% of his offensive line and he appeared more confused than usual, then they explained that it means two players.

    take the giants on the MONEY LINE GIANTS WILL WIN THIS GAME

    obviously an 0-3 v a 3-0 tends to go the way people aren’t expecting

    this one looks to be exactly how its expected. there is absolutely no way that they can stop Houston, Hali, Poe, Jackson, Berry, Flowers, Smith. that D is just tough, they will hit your QB all day, and you can’t run on them unless you have a running QB

    Eli is screwed.

    “they can’t do any worse”

    wait until you get a first hand look at Justin Houston, then say that.

  13. kappy32 says: Sep 27, 2013 2:23 PM

    Couldn’t simply say that they’d be without 2 starting O-Linemen? Does “40%” sound better? After last week, I wouldn’t mind seeing them be without 100% of their OL.

    Dontari Poe is licking his chops.

    With the way baas and snee were playing, this means zip. Knowing TC’s penchant for stubbornly sticking with vets, even when its apparent that they’re lousy, the new players (mosley, brewer, Hermann, whoever) may actually be capable of doing a better job.

    Lets be honest here….if not for Diehl having been injured through the first 3 games, its doubtful that pugh would have even been on the field yet; its the TC way…..play the vets (no matter how washed up they are) until they get injured and you have no choice but to throw the youngsters in.

    The Chiefs are averaging five sacks and three forced turnovers a game. The Giants are giving up just under 4 sacks and 4 turnovers per game.

    Being down two or three starting offensive lineman in this game can’t possibly be a good thing.

  17. lightninglucci says: Sep 27, 2013 2:44 PM

    Eli is getting a taste of what Rivers had the last two years. And the INTs already happening.

    As Madden always said, it all starts and ends with the big uglies up front.

  18. kev86 says: Sep 27, 2013 2:50 PM

    The Chiefs are the sucker bet of the week. The Giants will win.

  19. keylimelight says: Sep 27, 2013 2:50 PM

    Oh well, looks like another opportunity for a home team to play the Superbowl at the home field will not happen.

    Coughlin’s gotta find a way to win some games. Has he gotten bored with coaching or is he just too old to care anymore? I can’t believe I’m seeing the Giants crash like this.

    welcome to the nfl – no excuses

  21. shayeezy says: Sep 27, 2013 2:55 PM

    brutal. chiefs will have a field day.

  22. citynative says: Sep 27, 2013 2:59 PM

    Brandon Jacobs at Guard?

  23. bubbybrister/shovelpass says: Sep 27, 2013 3:04 PM

    Time to insert the fair-weather O-lineman…

  24. kev86 says: Sep 27, 2013 3:05 PM

    Chiefs beat Jax, squeaked out a win against Dal and beat Chip Kelly’s new Philly team.

    What makes everyone so sure this garbage team from last year is suddenly a powerhouse and cant be beat at arrowhead?

    The Giants have a resume that says they can win ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.

    The Giants have won under much more difficult circumstances than they will face on Sunday.

    Careful what you wish for Kansas City…the Giants are coming.

    I see Kev is a diehard, no matter what.

    He’s not very smart either. I hope he doesn’t have a gambling problem too. Not a good combination.

    Andy Reid is on his way to win the NFC east with the Chiefs. Already has wins against Dallas and Philly.

  27. kev86 says: Sep 27, 2013 4:54 PM

    Andy Reid lost 42-7 the last time he coached against the Giants.

  28. acorp11 says: Sep 27, 2013 4:54 PM

    Seahawks will be missing 60% of their line, against JJ Watt. So theirs that.

  29. acorp11 says: Sep 27, 2013 4:54 PM

    Who cares about them though, right? East coast bias..

    Hey kev, I respect the fact that you are an all weather fan, but you didnt really stand a chance before you lost two starters that have to be replaced by 1st and 2nd year players. Pugh is a T Rex. Big body, short arms. Houston is going to have a field day with him AND, Poe, Hali, Johnson, Jackson, Berry, Flowers, the list goes on and on and on. OH and you play in ARROWHEAD.

    Time to start a “Save Eli and the Rest of Our Quarterbacks” movement. Deactivate Eli, Painter and Nassib. Sign a jouneyman and let him get hammered. 62 years of watching Giant football and the last time I saw an “O” line this bad was – well – never. I’m not a fair weather fan, Justin. Not when I pay what I’ve pay for 62 years to go to the games. But I am a realist.
