    Is anyone getting worried about Blackburn?

    I love the guy. He was a big part of our Super Bowl run last year, but last week it seemed like he missed a lot of tackles. He's never been stellar against the run but still. At least he made up for it with the big INT though.

    Are you serious??? Eleven men on defense and you're laying it all on Chase?
    And, you're still bugged that he was beat bty a WR, when a safety didn't give coverage over the top?
    Excuse me, but that was not supposed to be Chase's man.
    You haven't got a clue.
    I'll bet you're a star on your local flag football team.
    Chase gives us his blood and sweat, and does his best.
    If Coughlin had someone to measure up to your standards he'd be out there.
    Shouls Chase apologize to you for not being as fast as a pro WR? For missing a couple of tackles?
    Where the hell is the gratitude on here for the solid job he did for us last year?
    Without him our defense wasn't as good. Period.

    He was really bad last week. He is the worst starter on Defense

    Where did U see that. Boley ran a 4.56 at the combine. Blackburn ran a 4.78 at his pro day. Regardless of 40 if u think Blackburn is as fast as or quick as Boley your crazy

    Your right. Thanks for driving your opinion home with some tangible proof.
    Right. So he is not only smart but so fast that he found himself waiting for a call last year while Boley and Kiwi where playing football in the NFL.

    Its just a fact that whenever we talk about someone white, we naturally call them a "smart player". I can recall a thread earlier this year when we were talking about Joe Martinek and someone said he is slow when he is actually fast, http://hopatcong-sparta.patch.com/ar...utgers-pro-day .

    News flash! Chase Blackburn is one o the few players on the giants D that is currently getting it done. Here is short list of people not getting it done:

    Rolle, Osi, Tuck, JPP, Webster, why don't people start worrying about why Osi can not get a sack or play contain. Or why webster is pretty much a whipping boy now.

    Instead everyone is super focused on Chase Blackburn not being fast enough, Ill tell you what whenever it was who turned that receiver free for that 60 yard wheaton TD, I did not see anyone else on the giants :cough: :cough: safeties, even on screen. So when both a CB fails to chip and a safety fails to cover the right area of the field chase blackburn's speed is not really the issue.

    Chase is built more like your traditional throwback middle linebacker. Tall and thick. He is a little stiff in the hips and not as athletic as your modern day middle linebackers who are more agile and quick...more like a bull v. a cat. He definitely has the brains and heart which I think endears him to the coaching staff.

    when you look at some old games from 05-09 you realise how good Antonio Pierce was for us at MLB .......he wasnt the quickest either ...but he was able to play both the run and pass very effectively and had a great football brain .....Chase is full of heart and bravery but just not nearly as good as AP was

    regards UK

    Whats with all this talk of 40 times? Are these comments referring to combine stats? If so, thats along time ago for Boley and Blackburn.

    I'm more worried about the state of our "pass rush" than anything else on defense (quotes intended)...

    I'm sorry I totally disagree with this. If Chase Blackburn is anything - he's a difference-maker. He always seems to show up big - as evidenced by crucial defensive plays made by him during last year's Super Bowl playoff run. He's even had some success this year. I think Chase is a good player and I love that he is a Giant.

    Off. Coordinators may not be planning to take away Blackburn but he's one of those guys that come up big in big moments and fly under the radar - which I feel is so important to our team and its chemistry on the field.
    He's definitely not a difference maker. A difference maker would be considered a core player. He's servicable but we'll be looking to upgrade.

    There are many things that need to click at the right time, in addition to chemistry and Karma, when teams get hot at the end of the year, like we did in '07 and '11.
    To me there were 2 things that occurred that helped us in last years run... Fewell relenting to the request of the DB's to play man, and the addition of the veteran savvy and stability that Chase brought to the middle of our D.
