    Chase Blackburn: Helping or Hurting The Giants' Defense?

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/10/2...-mark-herzlich

    Excerpt: "One of the most polarizing topics regarding the New York Giants these days revolves around the performance of middle linebacker Chase Blackburn.

    Is Blackburn's perceived lack of athleticism and ability physically dominate the line of scrimmage killing the Giants, especially in run defense?

    Does Blackburn's intelligence, knowledge of the intricacies of the Giants' defense and his ability to get both himself and kis teammates lined up properly help the Giants' defense more than any lack of physical skills might be detrimental?

    How long is Blackburn going to keep the middle linebacker seat warm forMark Herzlich, anyway?

    So, let's discuss Blackburn.

    Traditional statistics tell us that Blackburn actually leads the Giants in tackles with 42. He has two sacks, two forced fumbles (both Sunday vs. theWashington Redskins) and an interception. So, those raw numbers are not bad.

    Pro Football Focus
    , though, would have us believe that Blackburn is the weak link in the Giants' defense. He is, by far, the lowest-graded player in the PFF +/- system, with a score of -14.7 for season, including what looks like an awful -11.2 score vs. the run." Read more...

    So he doesn't make it to Canton as a MLB. Its the Coaches decision on who gets to play. If Herzlich was ready, they would start him.
    Blackburn is the type of guy you want on your team and every team has one like him.
    He hasn't lost us a game yet.

    My two cents.

    Blackburn is not a good starting NFL MLB as a whole, but he is a very likeable, hard-working guy who, in spite of his shortcomings, is able to make plays here and there.

    That's a fair assessment
