    Why is Boley not getting the snaps anymore?

    This is ridiculous.


    Mark Herzlich, Keith Rivers, Spencer Paysinger, Chase Blackburn, Kiwi, Jacquian Williams all had more snaps at LB then Boley, and coughlin said it was “not necessarily a health thing.”


    My question is why?

    Like all the Giants, Boley was upset about the team's lackluster performance. But the linebacker also was not thrilled about playing just 21 snaps.

    “Yeah, but, that wasn’t my decision,” Boley said Wednesday. “But coaches make the call, that’s what they felt like going with, so we played it.”

    Chase Blackburn played the most of the linebackers, with 79 snaps. Mark Herzlich saw 60 snaps and Mathias Kiwanuka received 50, playing at defensive end as well.

    Jacquian Williams played 36 snaps, Keith Rivers got 35, and Spencer Paysinger received 31.

    Coach Tom Coughlin said earlier this week that Boley’s lack of playing time was “not necessarily a health thing.”

    “It had been a cumulative health thing,” Coughlin said. “He was having some issues for three weeks that we felt was not allowing him to play the way that he’s capable of playing and that’s the reason we went into the game with these different personnel combinations.”

    So what is the deal here? Why are we phasing him out?

    Players and coaches rarely agree on health issues. Boley wants to come back next season so we'll see how that goes.

    The only one that doesn't make sense is Paysinger. Herzlich makes sort of sense since he was mostly in on that 4-4-3 formation we used on defense (in which case we would be adding an extra inside linebacker to stop the run). But Paysinger over Boley makes absolutely no sense at all...

    He's being phased out. Hard to imagine him returning.

    Boley has had a down year too.
    Do not feed the trolls.

    He didn't again practice today. I'm not sure they're phasing him out just yet, but that's possible. If they were hoping to get speed and agility our of the four linebacker set then doesn't it make sense to reduce the work for a player having knee and back issues?

    It doesn't make sense to use Blackburn and Herzlich if they want "speed and agility" from the LBs either.
