According to todayís NY Post, he hasnít allowed a sack in his past 282 passing snaps, the best of any offensive tackle during that stretch.

Just trying to pass along any glimmer of good news, folks.
Yep

Saw this posted in several threads yesterday. Glad he's improving.
the right side was a mess yesterday  
ECham : 11/13/2017 3:13 pm : link
you saw nothing from the left side. very positive development.

he might not be a top flight LT but he is an NFL caliber OL probably best at RG or RT
Maybe...  
looie : 11/13/2017 3:21 pm : link
...all the focus on Jenkins, Apple and the D has taken the pressure off him, and heís becoming a better player as a result. Heís no longer the scapegoat for all the teamís ills. As good a theory as any, I suppose.
I take all of this with a grain of salt

because the Giants offense has changed to accommodate him. The ball is out quicker for Eli's survival.
I keep waiting for the Debbie Downer crowd....  
njm : 11/13/2017 3:27 pm : link
to say it's because the DE on the right side has been getting there first.
I will say this about him.....  
BillKo : 11/13/2017 3:28 pm : link
he plays. And plays hurt if necessary.

I think Flowers (and Jones) are the only starters who are keepers.

Maybe a positional change to RT for Flowers if we find a better LT.

I'd certainly let Pugh walk.

It will be interesting to see what Wheeler can do next summer.
we are going to get two guys....  
BillKo : 11/13/2017 3:32 pm : link
in the top 40 next year.

Almost certainly one will be an OL.

That give you a rook, Flowers, and Jones.

I could see make Fluker coming back.

Sign a free agent......

There's your line.
Move Flowers to RT  
Bramton1 : 11/13/2017 3:35 pm : link
Sign a vet in the offseason and have a competition for the starting job.
This is great news moving forward  
Jay on the Island : 11/13/2017 3:36 pm : link
I still would prefer to move him to RT where I think he could become a dominant RT. I wish that they would insert Chad Wheeler in at RT and let him get some experience and show if he is an option moving forward. He can't be any worse than Hart.
He is better in Pass blocking now  
Elite Mobster #32 : 11/13/2017 3:45 pm : link
He had the Refs picked up the flags last week. He is getting the reputation as a solid honest player. He is not allowed to hold and get away with it so he has to play by the rules. He is picking up the nuances of pushing players out of position and blocking hard.
Big deal  
PaulN : 11/13/2017 3:56 pm : link
He is playing okay now. They are focusing on the right side now and the Giants are running the ball a lot more, trust me if he had to be good he would get exposed again, he sucks.

Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner!
Left Tackle  
TyreeHelmet : 11/13/2017 4:10 pm : link
I started a thread last night about Left tackle and how well Whitworth has played. I got attacked by a bunch of posters but my point was more about how valuable Whitworth would have been and allowing Flowers to play RT or RG.

I don't want any part of resigning Pugh at a big number. Always hurt and not exactly a dominating guard/
Flowers  
Csonka : 11/13/2017 4:16 pm : link
He's no Chaz Green.
I'd like to see him hold a pass block  
Since1965 : 11/13/2017 4:30 pm : link
for balls thrown 20 yards downfield. Then we can say he's playing well. But, when your QB dumps the ball within 2 seconds because the line stinks, it makes sense that the stats look better than they really are.
Jones  
Carl in CT : 11/13/2017 5:40 pm : link
Has been kicking ass in the middle. Look at our YPC after he became a starter.
I'm sick of people disrespecting the line  
Elite Mobster #32 : 11/14/2017 10:03 am : link
Eli need to stay in the pocket like Simms.

Stay poised. The line is not that bad.
