Left Tackle

TyreeHelmet : 11/12/2017 7:42 pm
"Today was Andrew Whitworth's 50th career game with 20+ pass blocks and 0 pressures allowed. That is 15 more than any other LT since 2006."

It's almost as if Left Tackle is an important position in the NFL. Sure wish a guy like Whitworth was available to sign. Oh wait...nevermind Reese doesn't want to build around 36 year olds. He'd rather build around shitty 23 year olds. What a joke.

Thank goodness for Porzingis.
Actually Flowers is now the least of our problems

and has been very consistent for a while now. Im not sure if LT is his position, but hes shown that he can play.
Flowers has been pretty solid

Big dick. I mean of the all the takeaways from that game and that's what you come up with?
he probably will be the highest graded

lineman from today's game. He was hardly the problem today.
Flowers is the single worst pick

Flowers  
Sammo85 : 11/12/2017 7:55 pm : link
Has slowly raised his level to an acceptable level. Hes not a good LT though. Its just compared to everything else, hes at least competing
and has generally stemmed the penalties and bumrush sacks he was giving up.

Flowers has been their best OL this season, Slapdick.
Getting Whitworth doesn't mean Flowers explodes.  
robbieballs2003 : 11/12/2017 8:01 pm : link
It means that Hart or Jerry gets pushed out. Getting Whitworth and putting Flowers at maybe LG with Pugh at RT would have been a much better OL. I am not ripping on Flowers. But the excuse the Giants gave for not even considering him was just fuckin dumb. We went out and signed talent 2 years ago with some character. This guys has both. He should have been a serious target.

umm. fucking tool
Not sure if you watched the game today but LT was not the problem  
SterlingArcher : 11/12/2017 8:06 pm : link
today. That whole defense left a stench on that field that will take a week to clear out. You had Louis Murphy catch passes against the defense today!

Listen to B in Alb, he knows what he's talking about.

not about hockey, but in this case, he knows his shit.

Are you forgetting Eli Apple?
If we signed withworth  
djm : 11/12/2017 9:53 pm : link
We'd likely be a better team. How much better? Ask yourself that. We're 1 and fucking 8. Were gonna be no better than 3-13. Whitworth wasn't helping the Giants beat Dallas week one. He wasn't beating Detroit week 2. The Giants were woefully unprepared to start the season. Yes, flowers struggled early and maybe one player makes all the difference but not likely. Not whitworth, as good as he's been. Not this team. Not this year. Maybe he adds 2 wins. Maybe.

Nothing was saving this season. This shit was and is terminal. Triage would have thrown this lump of shit out into the cold and said not salvageable.

Make peace with it. This suck was inevitable.
Flowers  
Marty866b : 11/12/2017 10:08 pm : link
I have thrown him under the bus for years now but, at this time, Apple is by far the lesser pick of these two top 10 draft choices. That these two were selected in the top 10 tells you all you need to know about our inept scouting dept.led by Jerry Reese. Reese,IMO, should be the first to go.

Running game has improved and he hasn't allowed a sack in 5-6 games, barely any pressures. But that's "acceptable." GTFOH.

With little to no TE help and a revolving door at LG. Yeah, it's more than acceptable. GTFOH.

I think you misunderstood me, dick. My point is that Flowers has been damn good these past few weeks, whether folks want to admit it or not. Now the new excuse is they're throwing the ball quicker (BS) or are scheming around him (more BS).

nowhere to go but up.
Flowers and Pugh are two guys we can rebuild around  
PatersonPlank : 11/12/2017 10:51 pm : link
FLowers at Lt or Rt, Pugh at G or T. The rest of the OL players we have are JAGs.
Flowers has been playing

Didn't he give up a sack today? Pretty sure I heard the announcers say it was Flowers' guy on one of the sacks.

No worries, bud. Not sure why folks try to discredit what's been a hell of a season for him after a bad start.
