    Completely disagree the giants don't value LBs. they have spent money (boley) and drafted them high (sintim)

    That they didn't draft one early this draft only says they valued players at other positions more highly. Had arthur brown been their highest rated player in round 2, he would be a giant now

    I'm sure they value all positions on defense. But its clear that D line and corner are the highest priorities in general. As they should be.
    Get well soon 80.

    Signed Boley and drafted Sintim in 2009 . . . . that was 4 years ago.

    Don't you guys know???? You don't need LBs!!
    Infact, LBs are soo unimportant, we should just take all 3 of them off the field & play with only 8 men....

    I kinda see the Connor signing working only if JR saw him as a system MLB that will fit what PF schemes. He def. doesn't strike me as this big hitter, or as an athletic specimen. He kinda represents a younger, slightly more agile Chase Blackburn. I cant see the FO signing him to handle all the MLB duties you'd see on other defenses bc a) he really hasn't done so yet in the NFL and b) he doesnt seem to be physically imposing. I dunno how much base 4-3 looks to expect bc we honestly don't have a Mike on the team as currently constructed imho....maybe we add Dansby or something, move Connor to strong side, and let Rivers/J-Will battle for the Will...Rivers could prob play any of the LB positions, that's just how I'd see the Connor signing working out based on his skill set or lack thereof...

    So on their most recent Super Bowl wins what LB would you say was a highly touted player? A guy drafted on the first round type guy. Why does everyone say their LB's will be no good? Williams was good his rookie year. Can't say Rivers will be injured. Conner could be just as good as Chase and everyone acts like he is irreplaceable.

    All those guys are just OK, even when healthy....Years of below average LBs has dropped our standards majorly..
    And if history repeats itself, they all have a better chance of being hurt this season than being healthy....
    Another LB MUST be brought in..

    Maybe there just isn't that much LB talent around anymore.
    Back in the 80's the best athletes wanted to play LB, probably because of LT.
    Now they all seem to want to be DE's.
    Get well soon 80.
