A problem for the NY Giants over the past decade has been the terrible work up front from the offensive line. There was hope that the 2023 campaign would be a different story for Big Blue, but the group has been rough to watch.
Time and time again, Daniel Jones barely has time to breathe, let alone scan the field for an open receiver. Pro Football Focus came out with its latest offensive line rankings ahead of Week 4 and to no surprise, the Giants have checked in at No. 32 - yup, dead last.
The good news for head man Brian Daboll is that left guard Ben Bredeson (concussion) and left tackle Andrew Thomas both have a great chance to return for Week 4 against Seattle. If they miss that game, however, then it could be another long night for Daniel Jones.
The Giants offensive line has to improve against the Seahawks
The guard play for the G-Men in particular has been a nightmare. Mark Glowinski entered the year as the starting right guard, but he was benched after his Week 1 showing vs. the Cowboys. In Week 3, with Bredeson sidelined with a concussion, Shane Lemieux got the start at LG. Yeah, that was a huge mistake from Daboll.
Andrew Thomas is one of the best left tackles in the game, but right tackle Evan Neal hasn't made the kind of leap people were hoping to see out of him in Year 2. At center, second-round pick John Michael Schmitz has had some ups and downs, but he's been pretty good overall. Let's hope the OL can finally put things together against the Hawks.
Jamal Adams will make his season debut for Seattle on Monday night
Seahawks fans are buzzing right now because one of their best defensive playmakers will be ready to put on a show at MetLife. We're talking about Jamal Adams, who hasn't been on the field since he suffered a season-ending quad injury during Week 1 of 2022.
According to insider Jordan Schultz, Adams will make his 2023 debut on Monday night. It has been a LONG time since the three-time All Pro has been able to suit up, so you know he's going to be motivated to show the world he hasn't lost a step. This could potentially be bad news for Danny Dimes and Co.
