Shurmur as general manager and head coach Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys , respectively, it was with the understanding that they would rebuild the team and return New York to “Giants’ Football”. Unfortunately, Bill Barnwell of ESPN ranks the two biggest moves regarding the reconstruction of the Giants’ offensive line as two biggest blunders of the 2018 off-season.The first, and most obvious is the signing of Nate Solder. New York Giants making Nate Solder the highest-paid offensive lineman in NFL historyThe second is more of the opposite side of an equation. He lists the Seattle Seahawks hiring former Giants’ OL coach Mike Solari, and signing former Giants’ right guard D.J. Fluker as one of the best moves this past offseason. Seattle Seahawks fixing their offensive line by adding Mike Solari and D.J. FlukerIf adding Solari and Fluker was one of the best moves, then the inverse — letting them both leave — has to be one of the worst moves of this past offseason. Virtually everyone expected Fluker to be re-signed by the Hog Molly mad Gettleman. After all, when circumstances finally forced Fluker on to the field Color Rush Alec Ogletree Jersey , not only did John Jerry’s problems with stunts disappear, but the Giants could actually run the ball.In fact, the combination of Fluker and Brett Jones helped the Giants mount one of the league’s most efficient and effective running games in the NFL when the two were on the field together. This despite Ben McAdoo having no commitment to actually running the ball, no threats at the wide receiver position. Compounding the mistake, Gettleman signed the since-benched Patrick Omameh to a 3-year, $15 million contract, while Fluker settled for a 1-year Youth Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , $1.5 million deal in Seattle.Then there is the Solder signing. This was supposed to be one of the best moves of the offseason, finally replacing Ereck Flowers with a top-flight left tackle for Eli Manning. Of course, the Giants’ had to pay through the nose to get him, but — it was argued — it would be worth it. It hasn’t been. The Giants’ $62-million dollar man has been a marginal-at-best upgrade over Flowers. The Giants’ offensive line has already tied the 2017 line in sacks allowed, and by even the most charitable count, Solder has already tied Flowers’ worst seasons in sacks given up. He doesn’t commit as many penalties as Flowers, nor does he have as many spectacular failures Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , but far too often he looks helpless against speed, too easily bullied by power, and occasionally strangely lost on the field. But thanks to his contract, Solder will be a Giant until (at least) 2020, so hopefully he can become something like the player the Giants thought they were getting.The Giants will almost certainly give Gettleman another shot at building a functional offensive line in 2019. But this time he has his own mistakes to fix, and regardless of what happens at the QB position, the Giants can’t afford any more blunders. When Giants head coach Pat Shurmur confirmed that quarterback Eli Manning would start against the 49ers on Monday night Authentic Kerry Wynn Jersey , he said that he “explained to Eli that everybody needs to play better” and made no guarantees about what would happen at quarterback after Monday night’s game.On Thursday, Manning said that “it’s always helpful to know where everyone stands” when asked about Shurmur’s message. That didn’t appear to be the relationship that Manning enjoyed with former head coach Ben McAdoo ahead of McAdoo’s decision to bench Manning last season, although one imagines it wouldn’t make it any easier to find out that the Giants no longer want him in the lineup.Manning acknowledged the “urgency to get things going” without mentioning what might happen if he can’t do better, which makes sense because he said he’s only thinking about Monday night.“We worry about this week,” Manning said, via NJ.com. “We have the 49ers. I have a job to do. I’m going to do it to the best of my ability.”The Giants will be home to face the Buccaneers in Week 11 and any thoughts of making a change during a short week will likely be predicated on what the Giants get from Manning in Santa Clara on Monday.
