Former Giants offensive lineman Shaun O'Hara skewered Ereck Flowers, who has struggled this season after having a poor 2016 campaign.
"I watched Ereck Flowers and it kind of goes back to what you were saying about Seattle," O'Hara said on Wednesday during an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Our standard is so low it's like, 'Oh, you know, it wasn't that bad. He didn't ruin the game.' I mean, he's gotten better in pass protection but his run his run game footwork and effort is awful."
Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said after the Giants' Week 2 loss that Flowers would "absolutely" remain the starting left tackle, and that's where Flowers has been during the Giants' losses in Week 3 and Week 4.
"You're going to struggle each and every week if your fundamentals are that poor," O'Hara added. "And every time I turn on the film it's just little technique stuff. If I was the o-line coach those guys wouldn't leave the field until we got it right."
The 0-4 Giants, who might be without center Weston Richburg on Sunday when they face the Chargers, have also been dealing with a less than 100 percent Bobby Hart.
"The one thing that just leaves you scratching your head is the simple aspects of the game," O'Hara said. "Combination blocks are things that Dave [Diehl] and I were working on in high school. If you're doing a combination block with your guard or with your tackle you shouldn't be tripping on each other, you shouldn't be getting split by a defensive tackle. And we all watched the game and the first two snaps of the game they lose eight yards on two running plays."
