According to SI.com's Tony Pauline, "word from the
Combine" is the Giants will have interest in ILB Bart Scott should the
Jets release him.</p>

<div class="impact">
Scott's 2012 salary of $4.2 million is fully guaranteed, so
the odds are against the Jets releasing him. Newsday did report in
January that Scott won't be back, however. The Giants have a need at
middle linebacker and realize it. It sounds like they'll actively try
to fill the hole in free agency.

MAYBE HE WOULD BE IN ON PASSING RUSHING SITUATIONS.

PLUS BLACKBURN IS ALREADY SLOW SO I DON'T THINK A SLOW BART SCOTT WOULD HURT.

True. Bart Scott, Blackburn and Goff are pretty much equals. Psych. Bart might be on the backside of his career but he's better than those two.

+2. Don't like him. He's a perfect Rex guy. And I don't think he's very good.

Too expensive to bring in FA's anyway. Concentrate on our own guys. If we're going to get a new LB, get him through the draft.

Don't mess with salary cap complications because of a LB. Especially a mediocre one.

I don't know what to think about this. On one hand, we don't want Jets cast-offs. If he's not good enough for the Jets, he's definitely not good enough for us.
But on the other hand, the Jets are bad at personnel evaluation. If the Jets think he's no good, he must be good (see: Danny Woodhead) and if they think he's good, he must not be (see: Mark Sanchez).

I've got no problem signing a quality Jet (who wouldn't be happy with Revis or Mangold), but I just don't Scott is that good. I'd rather not spend the money on him -- he's not an upgrade, or at least not worth whatever it's going to take to sign him.

Sounds like another band aid at LBer. I don't like it. Why the hell can't we find good LBers in the draft? Williams may turn out to be pretty good but other than him we've had NO luck at LB since Armstead. Kinda nutty when you think of all the great ones we've had in the past and now we can't find one lol.

Yay, another washed up LB! Can't we just re-sign Pepper Johnson?

I guess the question is what does he offer that we don't already have at LB? If they just want some depth, maybe. What always factors into these decisions are the people we already have; Goff, Kiwanuka, Boley, Blackburn, Jones, and Williams. If all are healthy, I think we're good to go unless the FO knows we're going to release one or more of them.

There is so much we don't know as fans.

If he is just depth that why would they want to bring in someone of his "character" to the locker room. Scott not "bad" guy but he is a strong personality who likes to talk. Not what the Giants need from someone who is Depth.

hahahah...

You guys are drunk if you think Bart Scott is the same a Chase Blackburn,

Goff is a closer comparison if we're talking Pre injury Goff.

But even then...Old Bart Scott is more likely to make more plays.

He's not at the top of my list but he'd be an upgrade.

In terms of continuity and team chemistry, I'd rather keep Goff an Blackburn as well.

Last season he played in all 16 games made 54 tackles, assisted in 12 and had 4.5 sacks.

if there is one sure intangible it would be his intensity and personality.

think : B. Jacobs on the Defensive side, loud-mouth but a potential fiery leader-type.

downside: worn treads on the tires and like someone said, not great vs the pass

We're in a bad way?? That doesn't make sense. Man, Blackburn played his heart out. He deserves a spot, and a SHOT at MLB. He is a no nonsense guy, Bart Scott is a thug from Jets nation. He's got a big mouth. Jints locker room doesn't need that sh*t. I think Chase deserves a roster spot, much more than Scott does.

Besides, he can tutor the rookies for the Wonderlic.

You take the wonderlic before the draft.

Why do I keep hearing about people deserving spots and all this.

You wanna know who deserves a spot? THE BEST PLAYER.

I like Chase but he's never been able crack the starting line up for us unless we were desperate and we haven't been particularly strong at linebacker since Coughlin has been here.

I don't think we should rely on Chase as our starter.

And then you throw in the guy Goff whos coming off an ACL and it adds up to 'you better sign someone in FA.'

Not saying Scott is the guy but we need someone.

The Wonderlic was a joke, Chase is a math teacher. Where Reese found him when he got him back in Nov. I understand where you're coming from, but I am one who believes in giving someone who performed well for you a shot.

I stand by what I said. I did say they are similar. I was quoting gmen0820's post regarding Scott being good vs the run and a liability in pass coverage.</P>


</P>


Now since you are on the Bart Scott bandwagon, <FONT color=#ff0000>know more than me</FONT>, and joke about my opinion, yes my opinion, here are Scott's numbers from last year----</P>


</P>


66 tackles---54 solo 12 assists 4.5 sacks 1 forced fumble 1 fumble recovered, and 1 pass defensed in 16 games.</P>


</P>


http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/4256/bart-scott</P>


</P>


Now Goff was on IR, but lets throw Goff's 2010 numbers in before Blackburn's</P>


</P>


Goff---80 tackles 54 solo 26 assists 1 sack 1 FF 1 fumble recovered and 2 passes defensed in 16 games.</P>


http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/11399/jonathan-goff</P>


</P>


Chase--26 tackles 20 solo 6 assists 0 sacks 1 fumble recovered 1 int and 2 passes defensed in 5 games.</P>


</P>


http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/9289/chase-blackburn</P>


</P>


Another thing Goff and Blackburn--Goff just turned 26--entering his prime. Blackburn will turn 29 going into the 2012 season. Bart Scott is 31 going on 32 starting the downside of his career.</P>


</P>


Bart Scott excelled in Ryans system and especially when Ray Lewis played next to him in Baltimore. On top of that we have our own cap problems. I'm not saying Goff or Blackburn are the future at mike backer for us, but they know our system and I like what I saw pre-injury to Goff and the hustle and heart Blackburn plays with. </P>


</P>


I stand by what I said earlier---no thanks to Bart Scott! </P>
