We have spent some time the last couple of days trying to find out what Big Blue View readers believe the New York Giants offensive line should look like in 2011. Let's finish that off today by voting on the much-discussed and ultra-important left tackle position.
First, though, let's review. Chris Snee at guard and Kareem McKenzie at tackle are set on the right side, so we have been discussing center and the left side.
In our poll asking who should start at center Shaun O'Hara was a clear winner with 58 percent of the 1,101 votes that were cast. The question for O'Hara will simply be if the 33-year-old will be healthy enough to return to Pro Bowl form following an injury-riddled 2010 season.
Next up was left guard. That poll is still open, and we have a somewhat surprising leader there as David Diehl has received 37 percent of the votes cast to 34 percent for Rich Seubert. Best guess there is that those who are voting for Diehl are doing so for a couple of reasons. One, because they doubt Seubert will be healthy enough following another devastating leg injury. Two, because they want Diehl somewhere other than left tackle. Vote in that poll if you have not yet done so.
Now, we move on to left tackle. You really have three choices there. Diehl, third-year man Will Beatty and Shawn Andrews, who might be the most talented but is also the biggest risk because of his history of back woes. What to do with Andrews is another key decision the Giants face once the lockout is over. For now, though, he has to be in the discussion.
Vote in the poll and let us know who you think should start at left tackle.
