    JR doesn't have a vote, let alone veto power.
    Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

      Nothing screams "I give up" more to me than starting Flowers next week.

        NO don't have the depth to "Bench" Flowers. Move him to the Right Side YES, Bench Him for a Underrated Rookie in Wheeler? Absolutely NOT!

          The indication is past don't you think? I don't think anyone would argue the kid is a bust a LT?

          But what I find strange about it is that he seemingly has regressed each year.

          I'd love to hear someone explain that.

            I'm totally okay with them experimenting with the line at this point. One this is for clear, Flowers cannnot play LT at this level currently, if you want to plug him in somwhere else fine, but get him the hell out of LT for now, he's costing more than he's contributing there.. it's not working, and maybe it wont work with him somwhere else on the line but at least they can say they tried something with what they had to work with to create a better chance at "complimentary" foootball or whatever mac likes to say.

              Everyone can save face and Move Pugh to LT and Fatboy to LG or RG. I don't care how good practices were. If you follow Jordan Ranan, then you know that him sucking comes as no surprise to people that actually watch them practice.

              This was a calculated risk that they lost on...Plain and simple. Hart gets a pass because the guy had a waaaay lower ceiling as a 7th round pick.


              Well, I guess I'll be in the draft section a bit early this season

                I don't want to see Flowers at LG or RG. He will get bull rushed right into Eli's face. Flowers needs to go to the bench.

                  I would love nothing more than to see Flowers benched, but JR would never allow BM to do it. That's an admission that JR screwed up royally by wasting a first round pick on Flowers. The only way Flowers gets benched over JR's objections is if Mara over rules him.
                  One of these teams is not like the others

                    I would not be against just swapping Pugh and Flowers just to try to salvage the kids career

                    think Robert Gallery

                    then on the other side I believe the Giants have to get on the phone and make a move

                    I don't think it is a bad idea to get on the phone with Rick Smith down in Houston and see if he wants to move Duane Brown who is in the middle of a very ugly hold out

                    this is a pretty urgent situation right now ... without some serious moves this will only get worse

                    I could easily see this team 1-6 at the bye

                      I don't get why they don't put flowers to guard and let Pugh take over at left tackle. Flowers problem seems to be with speed rushers and dropping his head, let him go straight forward and maul the man in front of him. If he can't do that then he needs to be cut.

                        agreed they have to try and do something or this season is already lost.

                          I would like to see this as well. Flowers will still get embarrassed at RT. No thank you for experimenting with Flowers at RT...

                            Every RDE on the Giants schedule is licking their chops right now. Flowers in Philly next week? Disaster #3.

                              Every DC in the NFl is licking their chops as well. You can't get an easier offense to defend.

                                if McAdoo benched Flowers then he might as well bench Eli too because they both sucked equally....
