Do the Redskins have a future guard in Flowers?

Recommended Posts

Obviously he could easily regress because up to this point we haven't seen loads of Flowers as a guard, but on the flip side he is still young & has adapted to this role quickly so his upside would suggest he could be a nice value signing if we get him signed up soon. Would we get a better value for money replacement in FA if he walked & had to be replaced?

That video does show some interesting things. Flowers does not always have the best technique, its not usually pretty, but he does seem to generally get the job done. Could we get an upgrade? Yes. For what he should cost. No.

Curious timing on that.  Last week (vs the Lions) Moses finished as the highest ranked player on both teams, per PFF.  He didn't have any penalties then, or Sunday before he injured his back.  

 

 

 


 

Well your guy Moses will be back in on Sunday I just heard.

He isn't my guy.  But the idea of Bruce replacing 4 starting linemen in one offseason appeals to me even less.

 

With the exception of Roullier, all of them were prone to mental errors, and mistakes. 

 

Since Jay was shown the door, all five guys have appeared on PFF's Team of the Week (which equates to them earning the highest grade at their position for the week).  

 

The salary cap is not going to be a constraint for the team in 2020.  If this unit continues to improve through the end of the season, I'd be all for keeping them in tact, if possible.  There's plenty of other places on the team that will need attention.  

 

If the FO cuts Moses, we're pretty much pigeonholed into taking a T with our top pick, if Penn actually retires.

What I like best about Flowers’ play is his attitude.  He goes looking for work and when he finds it, he puts a lot of nasty into it (in a good way).  He’s fun to watch and I think that attitude can be infectious (in a good way).

Yeah, I feel the same way.  Honestly, I’d be looking for Moses replacement (starting this offseason) but keep him around until we find that guy.  Even if that means he winds up as a very expensive backup for a season.

 

I’ll add that I was impressed with his play vs Carolina, even though he looked terrible at times earlier in the season.  GB will be a good test for him, as will Philly... and probably Dallas.

Okay.  Well I just don’t want to see you backpedal, after defending him so staunchly.  I’ll be watching him closely on Sunday.
