    Yeah we need him to hold down the fort on this 31st ranked defense until a younger mediocre replacement can be found. Pure genius right there.

There are a bunch of good linebackers we never take that are pro bowl caliber. You are the moron. Its more of the fact with Kaseem that we passed over him all the way in the 4th round. Thats a great 4th round pick considering our lb situation. We are talking about a 4th not a first or second round pick here

          I've got no problem with it.
          No one remembers who came in second.

            If LB play is so important to you go be a fan of the Bears or Steelers fan, then.

              I went on record last night that I wouldn't mind if we picked up a Qb that could either serve as a long term back up or potential trade bait. I would have preferred we didn't trade up to do so

                  Pugh still wouldn't have made it past the Cowboys even if the Bears didn't take him.

                    LB play is important to me....without it, the defense suffers. See 2012 for a perfect example.

                    In 2007, the Giants had Kawika Mitchell and Antonio Pierce.....they were good, not great LBs. In 2011, Boley and Blackburn had good seasons....Boley had a bad season in 2012, and Chase simply didn't have the speed, nor any help from the front 4.

                    This notion that we can get by with the front 4 is a complete fantasy.

                      2012 was more about the DL not playing well. We go as the DL goes, not the LBs.

                        I understand the value with Nassib in the 4th, but I would rather have had Green.

                        And I would have rather have taken Okafor in the 3rd than Moore.

                          yea I like Okafor also, but at that point I'm happy we got either

                            In 2011, the defense looked completely lost until Blackburn was re-signed off his living room couch. The turnaround began during that Green Bay game.

                            In 2011, Boley was a stud. In 2012, his play sagged along with Tuck, Webster, Canty, etc.

                            In 2007, Kawika Mitchell made an impact, and Antonio Pierce was arguably the best linebacker we've had since Armstead.

                            I'm not going to minimize the importance of the defensive line, especially in a 4-3. But I looking at this defense going into 2013, if someone had to pick a weak spot, surely it's linebacker.

                            If Moore and/or Cooper can get worked into a conversion/hybrid role that allows them to either be linebackers or handle some of their chores (covering TE, covering RB in flat, ranging sideline-sideline, things look alot better.

                              You can live in your little fantasy world where it was the LBs that made those defenses. The rest of out here in the real world will still know that it was the defensive line (and in particular the DEs) that made those defenses tick.

                                You're the one that is completely discounting the importance of the linebacker position. Hope you enjoyed last season, because that's reality.
