Washington Redskins offensive lineman Ereck Flowers doesn’t have a lot of praise for his former team, the New York Giants.
Remember Ereck Flowers? If you’re a New York Giants fan, you don’t want to. Just to refresh your memory, the Giants drafted Flowers with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami. He played three full seasons for the Giants before getting released in October of 2018.
Flowers was arguably the worst offensive lineman the Giants have had in recent memory. Not to mention, the list of bad offensive linemen the Giants have employed in the last few years is definitely long. Flowers is now a member of the Washington Redskins, and after he returned to MetLife Stadium on Sunday, had some things to say about his former team.
“Once they get back to losing, the stadium will be back empty,” Flowers told Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media. “That’s how I feel about them.”
Kind of an ironic thing to say when you’re on a team that hasn’t won a game yet this season. The Redskins are now 0-4 after falling 24-3 to the Giants. Washington is currently heading into a Week 5 matchup against the New England Patriots.
Flowers then went on to trash the Giants fanbase, one that has every right to dislike their former first-round pick for his struggles.
“I don’t care for Giants fans,” he said. “They feel about me how I feel about dentists. I don’t care for this place much. I would’ve loved to have come out of here with a W, but it’s all good.”
Flowers only started three games for the Giants under general manager Dave Gettleman and two under head coach Pat Shurmur. It’s already been a year since Shurmur benched Flowers and almost a year since Gettleman released him. However, Flowers still doesn’t have a great feeling about either of them.
“Gettleman?” Flowers said. “Nah, I don’t care to see him. [Expletive], the world will go into flames before me and him have a conversation.”
“I don’t care for [Shurmur] either,” he added.
It’s okay, Ereck. Don’t care for the Giants if you don’t want to. The organization is most likely trying to move on anyway.
