3. Offensive Tackle(s)
Anyone who watched the team in 2019 could see that the offensive tackles Mike Remmers and Nate Solder were overmatched. The duo allowed 97 quarterback pressures, most in the league. As a result, the passing game suffered.
Remmers looked exceptionally weak at times. It’s clear the back injuries that have hampered him the past few years have taken their toll. The coaches tried to help him out by using a tight end or even guard Kevin Zeitler on double teams. Neither helped very much as the G-Men still fell victim to speed rushers and blitzes. New York has to move on from their right tackle and will probably do so in free agency.
Left tackle Nate Solder was a huge disappointment. The man charged with protecting rookie franchise QB Daniel Jones’ blindside didn’t get the job done. His 57 pressures allowed was the most of any lineman in the NFL and 11 sacks allowed were second-most.
This certainly isn’t what the Giants expected when they signed Tom Brady‘s former protector in New England to a four-year, $62M deal in 2018. While Remmers is likely headed out, Solder will have every opportunity to redeem himself.
