It’s one thing to say a player needs to work on his craft, but it’s another to say they’re plain bad. Former New York Giants head coach, Ben McAdoo, made the expected mistake of taking a shot at a new player.
Left tackle Nate Solder, a player who has fought through cancer and didn’t let up a sack after week two in 2017, was put down by McAdoo, the coach who was fired for making every wrong decision possible.
According to the NY Post:
“Getting a left tackle in there will help them in a lot of ways,” said McAdoo. “I don’t think (Solder’s) a very good player, but I think it will help them in a lot of ways where they needed help in that room in the past and they haven’t had anyone to do that.”
Wait a second… Solder isn’t a very good player but he’s going to help them in ways that nobody else could? That sounds about right coming from good ole McAdoo.
Ben didn’t stop there, as he continued on to Ereck Flowers, who struggled at left tackle for the Giants during the former coach’s reign. He proceeded to break down why Flowers is so porous at tackle and why switching to the right won’t make a difference.
“(Flowers) can’t bend, you got to be able to bend,” said McAdoo. “You can run around him on (the right side) just like you can on the other side, Eli just gets to see it, which may help Eli. It’s not the blind side, it’s in his vision, so if he’s comfortable with what’s going on over on the left side, it can help him move in the pocket a little bit better.”
