    The game has changed since LT, Banks and Carson.

    TE's are more relevant then they were before.

    a good pulling guard is too

    Sorry but when was the last time the Bears won anything? The Giants and their lack of great LB's won the Super Bowl just one year ago.

    Sam Huff, one of the greatest linebackers in the history of the game, flourished under a 4-3 system designed by Tom Landry.

    I'm sorry, Buddy333, but you must have taken a wrong turn. This is not talking about Super Bowls. But the last Super Bowl champion had some decent linebackers, too. In fact we might add the Ravens to the list alongside the steelers and the bears.

    Everything is about the Super Bowl. The Giants won the Super Bowl twice in the last 6 years without elite LB's.

But not now and not in the foreseeable future.
    Are you trying to make me cry?

    Big ****ing deal.

    We've won 2 of the past 6 with mediocre LBs and great DEs. We now have a tradition of great pass rushing ends. What does it matter that we don't have "great" LBs anymore.

    Stop romanticizing the past. You're ex isn't any prettier or less of a ***** just because you aren't happy with your current girlfriend.

    Actually, this thread is about nfl traditions. I am merely pointing out that the giants tradition of great linebackers is past history. If you want to talk about Super Bowls that is great but it is not what I'm discussing here.

    So, outside of Huff and the 80's, where's the tradition?

    And this thread isn't about traditions. It's about you passive aggressively *****ing about our current LB condition.
