Eisen's Mailbag: Diehl at RT




Today's edition of The Mailbag on

I don t know why the Giants consistently try to move David Diehl from the left tackle position. They won two Super Bowls with him playing left tackle. Is Beatty a better left tackle? And when do anticipate Beatty s return?

Dear David:
It's not about what's best for Diehl, but what gives the Giants their strongest possible line and best chance to win. Diehl is the team's most versatile lineman. They could have won the Super Bowls had been played on the right side, but Kareem McKenzie was there. Diehl can play well at either tackle spot. Beatty is better on the left side. The coaches believe that is their best line combination and I'm not knowledgeable enough in offensive line play to second guess them. Beatty was on the practice field Saturday. If he can't play in the Dallas game, Sean Locklear will. Tom Coughlin said Locklear played well in the preseason.
