Things really are only going from bad to worse for the NY Giants offensive line this season. In the Week 15 loss to the New Orleans Saints, quarterback Tommy DeVito was sacked seven times. It was a brutal showing for the OL, but this is nothing new to Big Blue fans.

Throughout the season, the group up front has been far too inconsistent. Andrew Thomas is the star at left tackle, but outside of him, no one has looked strong each week. That's why it should come as no surprise that the G-Men are dead last in the league with 76 sacks allowed.

Giants fans continue to call for offensive line coach Bobby Johnson to be fired

Rounding out the bottom five, you have the Jets at No. 2, the Commanders at No. 3, the Panthers at No. 4 and the Titans at No. 5. The Jets, the second-worst OL in terms of sacks given up, have allowed their QBs to be taken down 61 times.

That number would sound like a dream for most NYG supporters, as they're worried something north of 80 will be the new number following Christmas Day's showdown with the Eagles pass-rush in Week 16. Time and time again, the line has been atrocious.

This is why offensive line coach Bobby Johnson is on the hot seat and a lot of people in town are calling for him to be fired as soon as the season ends. Others think head man Brian Daboll should have made the decision to part ways with him earlier this campaign.

Something has to change for the Giants offensive line, as it seems like protecting the quarterback hasn't been getting done for the past 10 years. If Daniel Jones, DeVito, Tyrod Taylor or anyone else is under center behind this group of hosses in 2024, then more of the same frustration will be on the way at this time next year. Joe Schoen has to figure things out in the offseason.
