    Mark Herzlich: MLB Job "Mine To Secure"

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/6/17...r-perry-fewell

    Excerpt: "When the New York Giants released Michael Boley and lost Chase Blackburn in free agency, the question that needed to be asked was who was going to take the reigns at linebacker?

    The team signed veteran free agent Dan Connor, but Herzlich was the No.1 middle linebacker throughout OTAs and mini-camp. It's a role he believes he's capable of fulfilling and does not plan on giving it up anytime soon
    .

    "I think it’s mine to secure," Herzlich said after mini-camp Thursday. "I don’t think anyone is handing anybody anything, but I feel like if I work hard and play well, then I have a good shot at hopefully making a difference for the team.

    "
    The former Boston College standout, who then came out victorious in a hard-fought bout with cancer, racked up 30 tackles last year as a reserve linebacker. Fourteen of those tackles alone came in the month of December.

    While Herzlich in a starting role is new to him at the professional, it's a position not unfamiliar to his main competition." Read more...

    Would be nice to see him become that MLB we need. I think he can play it well, but not top-notch

    Would be nice, but I'm not expecting it.
    ZERO quality wins the last 2 seasons. Major changes are needed.

    Training camp is going to have a lot of competitive juices flowing.

    Which is always a good thing. I think a lot of players got complicit at some positions.

    wishful thinking but I think that ship has sailed. he looks good now because our LB unit is that bad.
