With the NY Giants offensive line in need of some help, big blue signed OT Stacey Andrews.? Yes, the brother of Shawn Andrews who the Giants cut last week.? If you want to find some similarities to the every prospering Philadelphia Eagles and your New York Giants...The Eagles had both brothers in Eagles green at one time in 2009.? That experiment did not work.

Only two quick seasons later...Shawn Andrews the 3x Pro Bowler has been cut by the Giants and Stacey Andrews who had been traded from Philadelphia to Seattle has been let go only to resurface as a New York Giant.

Confused?? Me too.

Shaun O'Hara, a former captain and spokesperson for the New York Giants will be released.

Coupled with the departure of fellow veteran O-Lineman Rich Seubert,this news signals a significant remodeling of an aging unit that at one time was the strongest in the league.

O'hara was a solid if not standout player during his time in New York, which started when he was signed as a free agent in 2004. Moving from G to C, The Hillsborough native helped both RB Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward rush for over 1,000 yards each during the 2008 campaign.

According to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk........

Center Shaun O'Hara has pulled out of the Pro Bowl since he will undergo surgery. O'Hara had ankle and foot injuries and played in just six games this season. Carolina Panthers center Ryan Kalil will take his roster spot on the NFC Pro Bowl team..

It is absolutely the right move here for O'Hara......knowing the kind of guy he is, there's no way he feels he's worthy of the spot after only playing in six games this year.? Plus, he's not physically up to it and needs to get his health issues in order before next season.

Several Giants Lineman Scheduled to Go Under the Knife This Winter

Let's get caught up with some injury news and happenings before the season gets too far in the rear view mirror, shall we....

The Giants have several players that will be needing off-season surgery. One of them is DE Osi Umenyiora, whose knee and hip kept him from practicing in full all year.

Steve Smith?s absence was arguably the biggest injury blow to the Giants playoff hopes in 2010. However, it was the loss of another Giants receiver that could likely prove to be the most significant when all is said and done.

No, I am not talking about fan-favorite Victor Cruz. I am referring to Ramses Barden, who at 6?6 could become a major offensive weapon for the Giants, if he can stay on the field.

It was no secret why the Giants selected Barden out of Cal Poly in the 3rd round of the 2009 draft. Despite lacking the pedigree of a football powerhouse, Barden gave New York a chance to recreate the magic Eli Manning had worked with a slightly larger Plaxico Burress. With his rookie year being a wash, it appeared that Barden had finally arrived early this November when he filled the void left by Smith against Dallas.

Yesterday the Giants fielded only 2 offensive linemen in their normal slots. While Kareem McKenzie and Chris Snee stayed put on the right, the left saw Rich Seubert at C, David Diehl at LG, and Shawn Andrews debuting at LT.

The results speak for itself as New York stomped Seattle in a 41-7 rout. However, as mentioned earlier this evening, the victory had casualties. Both Diehl and Adam Koets (who spelled Seubert multiple times at C), suffered injuries. While the severity of the injuries are still unknown, the theme will likely be recurring in the near future.

Shaun O'Hara is not getting any younger or healthier. A Pro Bowler, team leader, and local product, O'hara has been a key member of the organization since arriving in 2005. Now, he is out indefinitely with a similar injury to the one that ended Strahan's 2006 campaign prematurely. It is not likely that the Giants will continue to pay out a Pro Bowler's salary in 2011 for an ailing player. Moving to the left, Seubert has enjoyed a resurgence so far this season. After experiencing a sharp drop off in his level of play last year, the longest tenured Giant has helped Ahmad Bradshaw become one of the top backs in the league. That said, he too is not getting any younger. Entering the NFL in 2001, Seubert missed a season in a half when he broke his leg during a 2003 showdown with Philadelphia. Seubert reentered the starting lineup in 2007 and has been a stalwart since.

All week we have heard speculation about the situation at C for the Giants. When it became apparent that Shaun O'hara would be forced to spectate, the odds on favorite to replace him was Adam Koets.

As most of you know, Koets replaced O'hara earlier this season for multiple games and despite some expected falters, was an adequate solution. Despite this, the Giants have made opted to rearrange the O-line a bit more. Rich Seubert will be shifting over from LG to snap while David Diehl returns to his 2006 guard spot.

Last but not least, the must anticipated installment of Shawn Andrews into the starting lineup will occur today as the former Eagle will get a crack at the LT job.

Who would have thunk it? Following a training camp riddled with injuries (let alone a 2009 campaign with a disabled list theme) The Giants have only one player ruled out due to injury for their opener.

That player of course is Phillip Dillard, a rookie linebacker who didn't figure to see much playing time today anyway. As reported earlier, Aaron Ross is doubtful.

The Giants, for the first time in recent memory, will have to make as many as 6 healthy scratches to whittle down to 45.

With final cuts days away, the Giants find themselves in a precarious position. Injuries have thrown the availability of several key players into question and providing adequate depth to remedy the situation may force the team to cut players that deserve to stay.

To help untangle the mess, I?ll be posting installments that break down the depth at each position group over the next week.? Today we start with perhaps the most important position group, the Offensive Line.

There are currently 10 players on the roster that have a legitimate shot at landing a spot on the line. The importance of this position and the recent injury problems it has encountered suggest that the Giants would like to retain between 8-9 players. Nine may be too high however, due to the roster issues we will be discussing throughout this series.

I think we can all agree that Jerry Reese is a good GM, who has mostly done his part in providing the Giants with the players that the team needs to win. On the surface it would seem that little of last season?s shortcomings were due to Reese?s personnel decisions, and are more attributable to injuries and bad coaching. But I wonder, if I were to put a number to Reese?s draft and offseason moves, would he average out among the better GMs in league history? Mediocre? Or just plain terrible? Over the next four weeks I intend to apply a letter grade and GPA to Reese?s off season moves and draft picks in order to more realistically tag him as a GM.
