Looks like he's really putting in the work.
An interior of Norwell-Jones-Fluker would be a physical middle for Barkley to run behind ;) Fluker Training

is the problem, he stinks.
Working hard is a great trait. Webb is a hard worker too. What you need is guys with talent that work hard.
Fluker isn't very talented in pass pro.
I agree....but its slim picking.
He did a solid job last year....and if they're going to try to run the ball...he makes alot of sense to have.
If they don't resign him, they could end up with Norwell and Quenton Nelson as their guards....that wouldn't upset me.
but not worth throwing $ at out of desperation.

Fascination? Wouldn't call it that and he clearly only mentioned the run for a reason
inserted into the starting lineup our rune game improved dramatically. He has his warts but id really like to see him back.
if you are forcing me to pick between Fluker and Jerry to start at RG, i am going with Fluker and wont think twice.
with a serviceable tackle next to him his pass pro wont be as big of an issue (if barkley is the pick at #2 pass pro is not our concern). Even with that, I think it is fair trade off in order to get his physicality in the run game, especially if we stick with undersized jones at C and bring average sized pugh back for a T spot.
DJ had alot of trouble staying healthy, as well
Improvement starts with hard work but if it doesn't translate to the field, we need to find someone else.
He should be what John Jerry should have been... the 6th man on the OL... can play either guard spot or RT in a pinch... he should not be the starter on paper going into the year but he would be a very serviceable back up
Pass Pro - Jerry
Run Block - Fluker
Combine them and the Giants have a Pro Bowl guard.
would you rather have a better run blocker or a better pass blocker.
John Jerry is better at pass blocker and average run blocker.
Fluker, is a way better run blocker and absolutely terrible pass protector.
Personally I would use the Jerry. He won't get a QB killed.
Outside of a few players on each team, all players have strengths and weaknesses. I like Fluker. He played well, did really well on the run blocking and was ok pass blocking, and worked hard.

He is a terrible pass blocker. I have never seen a guard get beat so badly on stunts in all my years of watching football. He will get Eli killed eventually.
on their ass in the run game. I would bring him back. Jerry should have never been playing over him
Was serviceable at anything should be required to hand in their BBI card, Immediately.
Or more pulling and lots of power run blocking (getting two blockers on one DL or getting a guard in space???)
I suppose those are both systems that require types of linemen over and above just huge and strong.
Great balance. Coach ability. Timing, ability to coordinate with teammates.
Either way. We get more specific run blocking.
this pocket pass, pocket pass, Delay draw in 11... holy fuck please no.more.
Fluker wins hands down. His warts are not as bad as some on BBI would like everyone to believe. Plus if the team can impose a successful power running games, they will control the LOS and dictate the flow of the game. Teams will stunt less when they have to play run first, and when DLs are worn down.
Pass rushes on the inside of the line are brutal. The qb has no chance to escape.
He helped the ground game get going last season.

He showed some flashes last year and I like his heart and mind but I don't think he did enough to get more than another 1 year deal. I think we paid him 1m last year so maybe bring him back with a small raise? Don't think he is on too many other teams wish list.
Need to see the weights on his feet to gain something close to balance or light feet.
