Boley moving to the middle opens up an opportunity for JWill to start.

JWill, Boley, David... Makes for the fastest, instinctive and quality starting LB Corp in the NFL.

Probably the smallest too. Would be great for playing passing teams and put in kiwi for Jwill for running teams.

David is just amazing, love the guy. shame too, not a lot of people are overly high on him around here and all over the social web. I understand he doesnt have great size/bulk but the kid has tremendous instincts and athleticism

what separates him from a guy like bobby wagner is his experience playing man coverage. he has a track record of covering TEs like say a michael egnew or RBs downfield like demarco murray. unlike a guy like wagner who just does a "meh" job dropping in zone coverage against average competition for the most part

And Rivers was brought in not to play?

And we still have herzlich and Greg jones who could be good players. Linebacker is looking pretty deep this year.

In that hypothetical lineup how's playing SLB ? I don't think either David or JWill are well suites for playing the strong side.

In base defense Kiwi played the SLB and JWill played in nickel D with Boley along side.

In base defense Kiwi played the SLB and JWill played in nickel D with Boley along side.And throughout the year, Williams played roughly 50% of the snaps. All of them either from the MIKE or SAM. Boley always played WILL.

And yes Kiwi did play the SAM, but I'm only responding to your question of who'd play SAM if David-Boley-Williams were on the field.

David is a nice player but another WLB to me doesnt make much sense. Giants primarily play Nickel anyway.

You are right . I guess my head keeps spinning with all those formations and just miss the good all days when LBs played 3 downs, that been said its nearly impossible to find a "complete LB " this days with all the complex passing offense in today's game.

Could David be viewed more as a replacement for Grant? More like a PF safety playing down in the box?

Doubtful, David did in college exactly what Boley does for the giants. Grants role is different, even as his hybrid LB role he still spends a lot of time dropping into deep coverage. Dont see that with David.

God forbid we upgrade our LBs....
You people do realize there's a extremely good chance Kiwi won't be a Giant come 2013???
Boley eventually won't be around either due to cap space...
& We literally don't know who our starter is at MLB....
