    Hey Reese...the best 43 defences took the linebacker position serious in the draft

    Quit saying we draft scrubs and expect them to perform. Go talk to Parcells who drafted banks at #4 when he already had Taylor, Carson, van pelt and Kelly.

    Linebackers set the tone fo the toughness of the unit and your defense is soft.

    1985 bears
    Otis Wilson round 1
    Wilber Marshall round 1
    Mike singletary round 2

    2000 ravens
    Peter bouleware round 1
    Ray Lewis round 1
    Jamie sharper round 3

    2002 bucs
    Derrick brooks round 1

    2007 bears
    Ulacher round 1
    Lance Briggs round 3

    1970s steelers
    Jack ham round 2
    Jack lambert round 2


    2001 eagles
    Jessie small round 2
    Byron Evans round 4
    Seth Joyner round 8

    I think the Giants right now aren't good at evaluating linebackers, just pass rushers.

    Right, the salary cap wouldn't allow for that. It is perplexing as to why JR places such little value on linebackers. As a fan who vividly remembers our run starting with Brad Van Pelt and ending with Armstead, it saddens me.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Moreover, why does he ignore our o-line? Beatty is the only quality player on there...

    Funny but he ignored safeties one year and that left us with CC Brown as a starter and a disatrous result that followed...........which led to the big contract for Antrelle and the signing of a bushell full of other safeties.

    Which is why I don't think us old timers will ever see a linebacking corps that we consider elite

    I would settle for "good"
    My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

    Because he places more value on the front and back 4.
