    Lol, yes because every 1st round and 2nd round LB'er ever drafted starts over players who have veteran NFL experience. You are obviously blindly in love with three rookies who have not had one NFL snap that either are complete and utter idiots in the case of Te'o and Ogletree or, in the case of Arthur Brown, has some skepticism associated with him as he barely made it through the 2nd round in a weak draft for LB'ers.

    So we are left with no linebackers and an underperforming group of defensive linemen.....................................and that is why we got what we got last year.

    notice 2 of the 4 guys you named are no longer with the team...JPP was gettting double and triple teamed all season.

    The result had everything to do with Eli Manning outgunning Tony Romo.

    Check Romo's stats....he and Jason Witten put on a clinic pretty much every time they play the Giants.

    Our best defense is Eli Manning, Hakeem Nicks, and Victor Cruz.

    Yup, that sums up 2012 pretty nicely.

    I am surprised that Karlos Dansby is still looking for a spot on a roster

    Money ... he values himself higher than potential teams value him (currently).
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    The game they beat them in last year Eli had under 200 yards to over 400 for Romo. The year before Eli had only slightly better stats than Romo. The last time they dominated the Giants was when hey had the LB's you listed before as being better than what they have had recently.

If one of our starters has an injury (which is very possible) well have a bunch of no names filling in which could be a huge problem when you think of the tight ends in this division.
    The depth is very shaky an injury or 2 and we have serious issues. U have to figure Rivers will miss at least 6 games

    Answer: 4


    Bottom line: The Giants defense sucked for many reasons last season, and the mediocre play of the linebackers was a big reason. The linebackers did not get any help from the front 4, but I still expect them to make a friggin play on their own every now and then.

    Boley was a stud in 2011, and then was banged up last year, and it hurt the unit's effectiveness.
    Williams is a promising linebacker, but his technique and toughness need to improve.
    Chase was Chase....he needs help on both sides, because he doesn't have the speed to cover for his teammates.

    Boley and Chase are both gone, and Reese replaced Chase with someone who is hopefully better than his run-of-the-mill career stats would indicate.

    I really hope DaMontre Moore and/or Cooper Taylor can help patch things up by handling the duties that are normally required of linebackers. I hope Dan Connor takes his career to a new level. I hope that Rivers can stay healthy - it would be the first time in his otherwise lackluster career. I have no hope for Aaron Curry.

    Sorry, but that's the situation......I'm living on alot of hope right now as it pertains to the linebackers.

    Because as history shows, when they don't get the job done, neither does this defense.
    What? The Last 2 we won the LBers Pierce, Blackburn, Boley, Williams, and god knows who else. I can't even remember because they were that irrelevant. Our LBer corps was absolute ****.

    So the correct answer is that we won 2 SBs with great linebackers when defense actually mattered. We won 2 SBs with crap linebackers when defense no longer matters.
