We all knew general manager Dave Gettleman was a no-nonsense, hard nosed man coming into the job, but what he just did to Ereck Flowers really shows his expectations for this team.
The New York Giants’ former left tackle was replaced by Nate Solder over the offseason, while Flowers was moved to the right tackle spot. This requires him to learn a completely new technique and system from the right side of the line.
Fast-forward to voluntary workouts and Flowers was the only player absent, aside from several excused absences.[sc name=”NYG Articles Thumbnail”]
Gettleman puts Flowers to bed:
Gettleman featured on WFAN this morning where he made sure Flowers heard his displeasure in regard to ignoring the team’s training sessions and expectations.

Right off the bat, Gettleman attacks his man-hood, and then proceeds to inform the mass media that Flowers has made his decision. This statement clearly promotes the shopping of Flowers for potential draft picks, and at this point a water boy might suffice.
