Are New York Giants Better Off with Chris Snee Going on IR?
It’s been a tough year for every New York Giants offensive linemen, and it doesn’t seem to be getting better.
Chris Snee was elected as a captain and expected to be a leader of the offensive line. He had held a spot on that line for two Super Bowls and has made multiple Pro Bowls. Snee was thought to be a solid player who the Giants did not have to worry about, but unfortunately that has not been the case.
Snee’s knee (and play) have been shaky all year. He along with the rest of the offensive line have been the driving force behind the downward spiral for the Giants, who cannot protect Eli Manning or open big holes this year.
Because of the atrocious play by the O-line many will see his move to the IR as a positive for the overall New York Giants team. They are not completely wrong. His move will give some young guys looks to see whether or not they can be long term options for the Giants. That information is very useful, especially for a team that may tank a season. However, this move will not make the offensive line better. While Snee has not been his Pro Bowl self and has taken a lot of blame for the overall poor play, he is still better than any of the Giants’ backup offensive linemen.
Snee’s injury is one of many for the Giants who are struggling to stay afloat. With Snee out and more players ailing the Giants might be in even worse shape than their record suggests.
