    Apart from LT, Banks, Armstead and Pepper over the last 30 years and there has been a terrible waste of picks by all GMs especially in 2nd and 4th rounds and awful free agents apart from Brooks and Boley.

    I disagree. I feel like Michael Barrow and Antonio Pierce were some of the best free agent acquisitions we've made.
    In the tough times we find out who we are...that's why I know VC will be back better than ever in 2015. #80 NYG4life!

    The Coughlin years have been very lean at LB by Giants standards.




    When fans on this site get all lathered up over guys like Sintim and Goff, you know it's been a loooooooong time since we've had a truly great one.

    No one remembers who came in second.

    Williams and Herzlich have shown great promise so far. did you kno williams had 78 tackles last season as a 6th round rookie. wow.

    The position is just not as important as it used to be. I wouldn't be surprised if we never have a LB group as good as the one we had in the 80's ever again.

    If we ever go back to a 3-4, we'll need impact players at LB again.
    We need our coaches to assign playing time based on something other than player salary.
