    I'm totally neutral on Rivers.....I'd grade him an "incomplete" in 2012......pretty much the grade he's had his entire pro career.

    He seems to lack field vision....basically every highlight reel that includes him is one where he is getting blindsided by someone.

    I really hope Reese isn't counting on Rivers to to productive in 2013.....but if he'll resign for cheap, fine.

      I agree with the many who say its all about the money. I would absolutely keep him if he isn't too pricey. He has great talent when he is on the field. It's just so hard to believe somebody can be so unlucky that they would get injured every damn season. Unless we pick up something better, what the hell else do we have as Backers?

        This will have to be a show me contract: show me you can stay healthy and show me you can play with the big boys. Wouldn't spend much over vet min.

          Honestly, the Giants need a long term answer at MLB, and Keith Rivers is not that answer. The pass coverage over the middle is just awful, and once coaches started exploiting it, the defense looked terrible.

          As far as bringing Rivers in, Id rather just keep Chase, Ive seen Chase make a lot more plays, and no one has more heart. Just wish the dude could actually defend soemone in pass coverage.

            With our lack at LB, he's worth the vet min.

              I have a big feeling that Blackburn will still be on the team in 2013, either playing and/or mentoring whatever rookie we may have in the position...

                No.....tired of "settling" when it comes to LB's.
                I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                  Chase is awful. I hate hearing about "heart". So what!? That's what our linebacking core has become. I like guys that are good not guys who are terrible but play with "heart".

                      Not settling, just adding depth. Can't go into the season with Paysinger, J Will, and Herzlich as your only guys. Giants usually take at least 7 LBs into the season.

                        I'm also getting tired of the word "depth" when what we actually need is "starter" at LBer

                          They need both. LBs are usually your best ST players too.

                          Giants aren't going to add 5 linebackers in the draft. So they need to add a couple in FA. And rivers is one of the best available for little money.

                            I actually like Rivers and feel he is just having bad luck with his injuries because I don't believe that a player can be injury prone its all bad luck. So if Rivers can ever get a break and stay healthy I think he can definitely be a starter

                              I hear ya, Chase is awful in pass coverage, but he does his job against the run. And like it or not, hes the best guy we have. But I agree with you, we need an upgrade, bigtime, but Keith Rivers is not that answwer. Making a small trade up for Ogletree would make me one happy fan.
