The Guard

One of the players who showed well in rookie minicamp was fifth-round guard Mitch Petrus of Arkansas. Tom Coughlin went out of his way to compliment him on his mobility and tenacity.

My question is, how comfortable would you feel putting him into competition with incumbent Rich Seubert for a starting spot. I say Seubert simply because I'm assuming Chris Snee isn't going anywhere. Also, for today's purpose only, let's assume David Diehl either beats out Will Beatty in their competition at left tackle, or that Beatty moves into the starting lineup at right tackle in place of Kareem McKenzie. Either way, we're considering Seubert-Petrus today.

Floor's open.



  1. Seubert, if fit, is the man, for this season at least, no contest. i think thats the universal opinion, not just from fans, but from TC as well.

    i have a feeling that if Beatty does come in, then it'll bhe at LT with Diehl moving over to RT.

  2. Opening day lineup, LT Beatty, LG Deihl, C Ohara, RG Snee, RT Big Mac, only two definite bench spots go to Boothe and Petrus

  3. I would like to get more interior push on the o-line. O'Hara ia not big, Snee is not big nor is Seubert. Petrus could give us a bigger push so I am ok with him taking the reins.


  4. Seubert will probably win the job, but I would not be surprised to see the kid get time as well. Same with Beatty. Mackenzie is getting knicked up and Beatty could spot start/spell him.
    I see Seubert as a super sub after 1 more year of starting.

  5. We have a very talented and experienced O-Line. I would like to see Seubert start if healthy and let Petrus fill in if needed, like Beatty did last year. I also have not problem with him starting, but he should sit back and learn as long as he can. We do have that luxury with a healthy starting line.
