    Harry started from '76 - '88. 13 seasons




    Starting LB's every year with Harry




    '76, '77, '78 - Van Pelt and Kelley




    '79... went to the 3-4. Starters with Harry were Van Pelt, Kelley, Dan Lloyd




    '80 - Van Pelt, Skorupan, and Marion.




    '81, '82, '83 - Van Pelt, Kelley, and Taylor




    '84, '85- Hunt, Reasons and Taylor




    '86 - Banks, Reasons, and Taylor




    '87, '88 - Banks, Pepper, and Taylor




    Not a bad crew of LB's in any of those years. God, we were spoiled then.




    Question... Harry started at MLB in his rookie year, '76. Who was the MLB in '75 that lost his job to Harry?

    lol... good story, rbc




    yeah, Skorupan wasn't great... surely the lowest ranked of any others. But, Frank Marion was decent

    This list just goes to show you how our defensive focus has shifted over the years from making LB a draft priority to DL the draft priority. I would have no problem with us going back to a 3-4 once the personnel is up to the task. Truth is, if we trade Osi like a lot of articles suggest, and drafted towards a 3-4 slant we could probably pull it off this year. Sintim, a McClain, even Goff and Boley seem better suited for that style. Tuck, Cofield, Kiwi. It would mean getting rid of a few D linemen not suited for nose tackle, but it would be a more attacking style out of the LBs. That is something we are sorely missing.

    Anything would be better than last year's D. With the Giant tradition established, last year was rough to watch.




    Now that all the boats are burned, it's hockey season.

    Yeah, anything would be better. It was very difficult to watch, especially since there seemed to be little effort and pride.




    I'd like to see a 3-4, too. But, we surely would need 4-5 very good LB's. I'm not sure what we have in Sintim and Boley. Goff might do well... still not enough experience to go on, even with him. I'm still praying that our #1 is a LB this draft... someone tohelp bring back the pride. If we go 3-4 we'll need 2 LB's, like Carson and Reasons, who can stuff the run. I expect Sintim would be that blitzing LB to put the pressure on, ala LT. Now, who is going to be the LB who, like Banks, can keep his feet and string out any wide run?
