Eisen's Mailbag: Starting left tackle




Today's edition of The Mailbag on

Do you think Will Beatty will get back his job as the starting left tackle or will Sean Locklear be there for the foreseeable future?

Frankly, I expect Beatty to step back into the starting lineup once he proved to the coaches his back was healthy. But it appears such a move isn't imminent. Tom Coughlin said yesterday, "There will be no change there unless I let you know." So it appears Beatty will continue to play primarily as an extra tight end until further notice.

Everybody is talking about our lack of a pass rush vs. Dallas, but I'm just as worried about the defensive backs. The secondary didn't play well against the Cowboys. Do you think we'll see some adjustments this week?

I don't know about adjustments, but I think two factors will be key in improving the play in the secondary. First, I believe Corey Webster will play better. Tom Coughlin and Perry Fewell both said Webster did not play his best against Dallas. Webster is too good a player to stay down for long. Also, Prince Amukamara should start at right corner. No disrespect to Michael Coe, but Amukamara was a first-round draft choice because he's very talented. His presence will upgrade the secondary. I think the entire unit will rebound on Sunday vs. Tampa Bay.
