Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Can Carmen Bricillo, Joe Schoen clean up Giants’ offensive line mess?

Can Bricillo put Humpty Dumpty together again? It’s been broken for a long time, and took a significant nose dive beginning with the Joe Judge era.

There are only three certainties about the Giants’ offensive line in 2024:

  • Andrew Thomas will be the left tackle.
  • John Michael Schmitz will be the center.
  • The rest of the line is a grab bag. There is no way to know who the other starters will be, or going even further what the depth will look like.

Giants hope Raiders' Carmen Bricillo can fix offensive line |

Bricillo has some of that on his résumé. He wasn't a favorite of players in Las Vegas, according to multiple sources. There were questions about his coaching techniques, and the Raiders didn't exactly put up a fight to retain his services, given his connection to coach Josh McDaniels, who was fired Oct. 31.

But it's hard to argue with the results. Bricillo got the most out of a line this season that featured standout left tackle Kolton Miller and veterans Andre James, Jermaine Eluemunor and Greg Van Roten, plus young guard Dylan Parham, who has developed into a quality player under Bricillo after being a third-round pick in 2022.

Duggan: Joe Schoen erred in ‘expediting’ Giants’ rebuild. Will he learn from his mistake? | The Athletic

How Schoen will operate this offseason is unpredictable. Does he forge ahead with the plan to use as many resources as possible to build around Jones? Or does he hit the reset button and look to the NFL Draft for a new quarterback?

Schoen said his eyes were opened on unspecified things that need to change after going through this trying season. He even conceded he might have looked at things “through rose-colored glasses” during the successful 2022 season and “maybe you put more weight in something that wasn’t.”
