Ex-Giant OL coach Pat Flaherty saw “dramatic” improvement from Andrew Thomas

Photo by Abbie Parr/ ‘Flats’ breaks down rookie tackles Andrew Thomas made “dramatic” improvement from Week 1 to Week 17 of his rookie season as the left tackle for the New York Giants, according to the assessment of Pat Flaherty, Giants offensive line coach from 2004-2015. Flaherty, nicknamed ‘Flats,’ broke down the four offensive tackles drafted in the first round in a video for the 33rd Team. In evaluating the No. 4 overall pick, Flaherty saw what others have previously pointed out. That being that Thomas gave up the inside ‘an awful lot in the first...

Giants’ offensive line: Tumultuous year, but hope going forward

Giants’ offensive line: Tumultuous year, but hope going forward

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ Young offensive line dealt with a lot of adversity in 2020 The 2020 season was a difficult one for the New York Giants offensive line. The starting left tackle opted out of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That meant rookie left tackle Andrew Thomas had to play that spot. Rather than draft a center or sign one in free agency, the Giants chose to convert Nick Gates to the position. Ultimately, that proved to be a terrific decision. It contributed, though, to a rough beginning. The pandemic wrecked a much-needed offseason as the Giants...

Andrew Thomas blocking for Daniel Jones. | Photo by Jamie Sabau/ Thomas isn’t worried about comparisons to other tackles selected in 2020 draft’s first round The New York Giants passed on Mekhi Becton, Jedrick Wills and Tristan Wirfs to make Andrew Thomas the No. 4 overall pick and first offensive tackle selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Giants’ left tackle ended up...

Giants’ rookie report card: From Andrew Thomas to Niko Lalos

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ How did the rookies perform for the Giants? The 2020 season is now over and the New York Giants finished with a 6-10 record. Winning six games shouldn’t be applauded, but there seems to be direction with this Joe Judge team. The team was competitive in just about every game, and there were a ton of rookies who made significant contributions. The Giants were the youngest team in the league and they had eight rookies play more than 90 snaps (non-special teams). This was Dave Gettleman’s third draft as the general manager of the team, so let’s...

Against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, the line allowed five sacks as the Giants lost, 27-13. “It wasn’t good enough … it’s not good enough as a group, it’s not good enough individually, it’s not good enough in terms of how I got them ready to go,” said offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo during a Tuesday...
