    What's the best combination for the offensive line?

    What do you think the starting offensive line will be in week 1?

    I like Ranaan's layout here, but I don't think that will be it. Seems they're really pushing Mosley, likely based on experience, before getting Richburg out there. Mistake IMO.

    Giants morning run: What is the best offensive line combination?

    EAST RUTHERFORD -- The Giants were trying a little bit of everything on Tuesday afternoon.

    Right tackle Justin Pugh was playing left tackle. Right guard Brandon Mosley was playing right tackle. Weston Richburg was playing every interior spot.

    Giants coach Tom Coughlin is mixing and matching right now, getting guys reps at different spots just in case and/or because they need to prepare for everything. At least he has a lot of options, even if they aren't of the highest quality.

    Given the choice, my starting five would be Will Beatty at left tackle, Richburg at left guard, J.D. Walton at center, Geoff Schwartz at right guard and Pugh at right tackle. That combination -- one the Giants have yet to try -- makes sense.

    It puts the two best run blockers (Pugh and Schwartz) on the same side. It puts Schwartz in the position he's most comfortable in after having played on the right side in Kansas City. It puts the two fleetest-of-foot linemen (Beatty and Richburg) on the left side. That should work well for screens, an integral part of coordinator Ben McAdoo's new offense.

    It also leaves Brandon Mosley as the odd-man out. Mosley has been average, at best, so far in the preseason. At this point, might as well go with the rookie second-round pick (Richburg) over an average player.

    Sound like a solid plan? What do you think? What would be your choice for a starting Giants offensive line in Week 1?

    I admit I did not watch any preseason game yet so I base this solely on what I've seen in camp and match highlights...

    I think it is time Mosley is replaced. I'd like to see the Giants try a line like this:
    Beatty - Richburg - Walton - Schwartz - Pugh

    ^That's how I'd do it.

    That or Beatty, Pugh, Richburg, Schwartz, Brewer. And also realize I've been the biggest proponent of keeping Pugh at tackle, but our interior line play blows and Brewer's been real good.

    I mention that in the other thread

    Beatty - Pugh - Richberg - Schwartz - Brewer

    Or even

    Beatty - Pugh - Walton - Richberg - Schwartz

    Yeah I think
    Beatty-Pugh-Walton-Richburg-Schwartz gives us our most complete if not our most athletic lineup.

    ^ That's the line mentioned in the article. Agreed. Think this will be the way to go. Hope they try it tomorrow night.

    Oh yeah, didn't read it thoroughly enough so it seems. But anyways, that's how I'd like to see it. Where did Jerry play in Miami? LG?? Cause if he can make his way back to his form of last season he might grab the LG spot as well

    Think he played RG. He's still fighting back from injury and all that. So far he's not in the mix with the starters and not even taking over Mosley, so not looking good so far. He'll likely be on the roster, but it'll be a little while until he contributes in a meaningful way.

    Schwartz signing was big for us, but he's a RG, we're playing him at LG and he looks lost. After he was injured tonight on a play which he was ran through (he's 6'6'', 340 lbs mind you) not over, the OL had its best run of pass blocking this whole preseason. It was during the 2 minute drill but it was great. When/if he returns he either goes to RG or nothing. If JJ can't get back and take someone's spot, the starting personnel in no particular order is Richburg, Beatty, Walton, Schwartz and Pught. They can get it done, but any twist/stunt in front of them or outside blitzer coming at them and someone gets an untouched run at Eli. Zone-block people, coaching has to fix that. Pugh has to stop giving up the inside move to, it happens too often.

    I don't do many endorsements. I'd rather get doused by Gatorade than bust my butt selling it.

    I just re-watched the game via my DVR, rewinding every snap to watch every individual D and O-lineman at work. I'm high on Richburg and feel that he is going to be really good for us. It's too bad that Schwartz is going to miss some time, but Richburg starting anywhere on that OL will be good for us. I watched him making his initial block and then sliding to the next level to pick up another one....it was fun to watch. He wasn't perfect, but better than the others.

    Pugh is improving but he occasionally gets beat inside and that can't happen.

    Where's .Sean. to talk about O-lineman??

    So in light of the Schwartz injury, and after watching last game, here's what I want: Pugh-Richburg-Walton-Boone-Beatty

    Here's what makes more sense: Beatty(WAKE THE **** UP)-Richburg-Walton-Brewer-Pugh

    Here's what it'll be: Beatty-Richburg-Walton-Mosley-Pugh

    Eli is ****ed.

    What's the best combination for the offensive line?

    Jerry getting reps with the 1s is promising.
