EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — During the first half of the season, tinkering and maneuvering along the New York Giants’ offensive line has been common.
In the last three weeks, though, the group has played extremely well together — so well there doesn’t seem to be room for veteran David Diehl to return to a starting role.
The Giants have won three straight and four of the five games the starting line has consisted of Will Beatty and Chris Snee at guards, Kevin Boothe and Sean Locklear at tackles and David Baas at center. The moves were made when Diehl, the 10-year vet and a staple on both Giants’ Super Bowl championship teams, went down with a sprained right knee.
