Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

I never thought I’d see the day that Ereck Flowers and “good” were used in the same sentence, but he’s finally going to do something good for the Giants in 2019.

Flowers, who was picked up by the Washington Redskins, will likely emerge as their starting left guard. The lack of offensive line quality across the league has left many teams scraping for value, and this is just another example. Finally, after years of watching the human turnstile give Eli Manning a heart-attack every play, we will get to enjoy him do the same for another team.

Playing Washington twice per year is a blessing for the Giants, as their lack of defensive line strength will have the pleasure of dominating a first-round pick that would likely go in the 7th round today.

To add to the positivity, John Jerry, former Giants right guard, will likely be the starter for the Cincinnati Bengals at the position. After Jonah Williams suffered a torn labrum on Tuesday, Jerry became the automatic next man up. Ahh, yet another ex-Giants turnstile that we can enjoy fail on another team.

Did I mention the Bengals are paying Bobby Hart an average of $5.3 million per season to play right tackle? Paying Nate Solder $15.5 million per year doesn’t seem too bad right about now, or bringing on Kevin Zeitler. Having a good offensive line is a rarity in today’s NFL, and the Giants could have one of the best in 2019.
