    I have a big feeling that Blackburn will still be on the team in 2013, either playing and/or mentoring whatever rookie we may have in the position...

    No.....tired of "settling" when it comes to LB's.
    And now, in the interest of equal time, here is a message from the National Institute of Pancakes: It reads, and I quote, **** waffles.......G Carlin

    Chase is awful. I hate hearing about "heart". So what!? That's what our linebacking core has become. I like guys that are good not guys who are terrible but play with "heart".

    Not settling, just adding depth. Can't go into the season with Paysinger, J Will, and Herzlich as your only guys. Giants usually take at least 7 LBs into the season.

    I'm also getting tired of the word "depth" when what we actually need is "starter" at LBer

    They need both. LBs are usually your best ST players too.

    Giants aren't going to add 5 linebackers in the draft. So they need to add a couple in FA. And rivers is one of the best available for little money.

    I actually like Rivers and feel he is just having bad luck with his injuries because I don't believe that a player can be injury prone its all bad luck. So if Rivers can ever get a break and stay healthy I think he can definitely be a starter

    I hear ya, Chase is awful in pass coverage, but he does his job against the run. And like it or not, hes the best guy we have. But I agree with you, we need an upgrade, bigtime, but Keith Rivers is not that answwer. Making a small trade up for Ogletree would make me one happy fan.
