The results this season on the offensive line have been below par, at least according to the high standards the Giants have set for themselves. For years, the line was the team's bedrock — steady and stout and occasionally great. But with change up front, this season's group has taken a while to mesh. The time, however, could be coming when it plays its best ball of the season. The pressures allowed still have been too frequent and the run blocking isn't yet where it needs to be, but OLT William Beatty has had a nice season, ORG Chris Snee is coming back to his typical form and ORT Kareem McKenzie has improved. Beatty has been a quiet surprise. He has shown more power and physicality in his game than he was regarded to possess and also has kept his good, athletic feet. Insiders have credited the leadership of David Diehl, the starting left guard who has played every position on the line except for center, for Beatty's development.
