Biography

TRANSACTIONS:
Originally a 5th round (160th pick overall) draft choice by the Giants in 2003.

GIANTS NOTES:
Tough, durable and versatile offensive lineman missed only 7 games in his first 10 seasons with the Giants. Diehl started the first 120 regular-season games and 7 postseason games in his career, the longest such streak by a Giant since the introduction of the 16-game schedule in 1978. The streak ended on Nov. 14, 2010 vs. Dallas because of hip and hamstring injuries Diehl suffered the previous week in Seattle.

Diehl was the only player selected in the 2003 NFL Draft to start every game from 2003-09. He was 1 of 4 players who entered the league in 2003 and played in every regular-season game through the end of the 2009 season. The others were Josh Brown, Derrick Dockery and Visanthe Shiancoe.

During the streak, Diehl started 16 games at right guard as a rookie, 16 at right tackle in 2004, 15 games at left guard and 1 game at right tackle in 2005, 15 games at left guard and 1 at left tackle in 2006, 16 games at left tackle in 2007, 2008 and 2009, and 7 at left tackle and 1 at left guard in 2010. After sitting out 4 games, Diehl started 3 games at left tackle and 1 at left guard.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
Has started all 140 regular-season games and 11 postseason games in which he has played since joining the team in 2003.

Diehl has started games at every position on the offensive line but center. In the regular season, he has started 65 games at left tackle, 42 at left guard, 17 at right tackle, and 16 at right guard. In the postseason, Diehl has 10 starts at left tackle and 1 at left guard.

Diehl started 120 consecutive games before sitting out the first of 4 consecutive games on Nov. 14, 2010 vs. Dallas. He suffered hamstring and hip injuries at Seattle (11/7). When he did not play the following week vs. Dallas, it ended the streak. Diehl is the only Giant other than Eli Manning (119 consecutive starts entering the 2012 season) to start at least 100 consecutive games since 1978…Diehl’s 120 consecutive starts was the 12th-longest streak among all active players and tied for the 6th longest streak among offensive linemen.

In 2011, Diehl started all 16 regular-season games for the 8th time in his first 9 seasons. He also started each of the Giants’ 4 postseason games. Diehl started the season’s first 10 games at left guard. After Will Beatty was sidelined following eye surgery, Diehl started the final 6 regular season games and all 4 postseason games at left tackle.

Diehl and the offensive line helped the Giants win Super Bowl XLVI behind one of the NFL’s most productive offenses. The Giants were 9th in the NFL with 394 points and established franchise records with 6,161 total yards (385.1 a game, which ranked 8th

in the NFL) and 4,734 net passing yards. The line blocked well enough for Manning to throw for 4,933 yards, the 6th-highest total in NFL history…In the playoffs, the Giants averaged 402.5 total yards a game.

In 2010, Diehl started all 12 games in which he played – 10 at left tackle and 2 at left guard (at Seattle and at Washington)…Inactive with hamstring and hip injuries vs. Dallas (11/14), at Philadelphia (11/21), vs. Jacksonville (11/28) and vs. Washington (12/5).

Despite starting 6 different offensive line combinations in 2010, the Giants were ranked 5th in the NFL with an average of 380.3 yards a game. The Giants gained 6,085 yards, the first 6,000-yard season in their history. The line blocked well enough for the Giants to finish 6th in the NFL in rushing with 137.5 yards a game and they were the only NFC team with two 800-yard rushers (Ahmad Bradshaw, 1,235 and Brandon Jacobs, 823).

The Giants and Indianapolis Colts allowed an NFL-low 16 sacks in 2010, the fewest sacks allowed by the Giants since the 16-game season was instituted in 1978. Their previous low total was 24 sacks allowed in 2002. The Giants did not allow a sack in a franchise-record 5 consecutive games (Nov. 7-Dec. 5) and in 7 games overall.

In 2009, Diehl started all 16 games at left tackle and was selected to his 1st Pro Bowl.

In 2008, Diehl started all 16 games at left tackle and was selected to the All-NFC team by the Pro Football Writers Association…He was an integral part of an offense that helped the Giants finish with 427 points and 338 first downs, both the 2nd-highest totals in franchise history. The Giants gained 5,695 yards, then the 3rd-highest total in their history. The line’s blocking enabled the Giants to lead the NFL and set franchise records in both rushing yards per game (157.4) and yards per carry (5.0). With Diehl and the line opening holes, Brandon Jacobs (1,089) and Derrick Ward (1,025) became the 4th pair of running back teammates to rush for 1,000 yards in the same season.

With the line opening holes, the Giants rushed for 301 yards in a victory over Carolina (12/21) that clinched the top seed in the NFC playoffs. It was the 5th-highest total in Giants history…Diehl and the line allowed just 2 sacks in a 5-game period from

Sept. 21-Oct. 26. In 2007, Diehl started all 16 regular-season games and 4 postseason games at left tackle. Diehl was a key component of an offense that helped the Giants score 373 points (the 5th-highest total in franchise history) and compile 321 first downs (the 4th-highest total by a Giants team) and 5,302 yards (7th in team history). The line’s blocking enabled the Giants to finish 4th in the NFL in rushing yardage with an average of 134.3 yards a game. Diehl and the line allowed just 4 total sacks in a 5-game period from Sept. 30- Oct. 28.

In 2006, Diehl started the first 15 games at left guard before shifting to tackle for the regular-season finale and the NFC Wild Card Game. Started at left tackle at Washington (12/30), where the line allowed 1 sack and provided enough run blocking for the Giants to rush for 261 rushing yards, including a franchise-record 234 yards by Tiki Barber…Also played left guard in the game after Grey Ruegamer was sidelined temporarily in the 1st half with a leg laceration…Started at left tackle in the NFC Wild Card game at Philadelphia (1/7)…Run blocking helped the Giants gain 151 yards on 31 rushes.

In 2005, started 15 games (plus the NFC Wild Card Game) at left guard and 1 at right tackle. The line’s blocking enabled Barber to rush for a franchise-record 1,860 yards…Pass blocking helped Manning to pass for 3,762 yards, the 5th-highest total in franchise history…Blocking at left guard helped Barber rush for 203 yards, including a franchise-best 95-yard touchdown run, at Oakland (12/31)…Started at right tackle in place of Kareem McKenzie vs. Kansas City (12/17) and line's blocking enabled Barber to rush for a then-team record 220 yards.

In 2004, Diehl started all 16 games at right tackle. He missed a snap for the 1st time in his career when he left the game for a play in the 4th quarter with a cut below the eye at Green Bay (10/3). Returned to the game and helped the Giants rush for 245 yards.

In 2003, Diehl played right guard and became the first Giants rookie to start all 16 games since Mark Bavaro in 1985…Was one of 14 NFL rookies to start all 16 games…Was 1 of only 3 offensive linemen on the roster to see action in all 16 games, was 1 of only 2 to start every game during the year and was the only 1 to start at the same position each game during the 2003 season.
