Often the key for a successful offense is the offensive line. You can have a great quarterback but if his line is in shambles there is a good chance he will struggle at times. The offensive line is sometimes an over looked position. The position is so important yet so overlooked. Many times when a team is struggling on offense the line takes the blame. However people are quick to overlook the line when a team is having great success. The offensive line is vital to the success of a quarterback , running back and even the receivers. We are seeing impact linemen picked in early parts of the NFL draft more and more each year.

The New York Giants had a miserable 2013 season. Eli Manning had his worst career season and the offensive line was in shambles. Manning did not have the protection he was used to seeing in the Giants Super Bowl title runs. The Giants were led by a core of linemen in David Diehl , Shaun O’Hara , and Chris Snee.

The New York Giants have had a rich history of having talented offensive linemen. The Giants have had talented players at the position in every postseason run in the teams history. The Giants have two Hall of Famers in Mel Hein and Roosevelt Brown at the position. Al Blozis was also a great linemen but was also a courageous man who died in his World War II service. David Diehl was a part of two championship teams.
