NO, not George Orwell. Not Van Halen. This is a Giants blog! When was the last time the Giants picked a linebacker in the first round? You are so smart!- 23 years ago in 1984… Carl Banks.
TWENTY THREE YEARS AGO! HOW SAD IS THAT?!!!! Don’t you think it is high time we picked a LB? Considering there are 7 major food groups (WR/TE, OL, QB, RB, DL, LB, S/CB), we should have picked more than one LB in the last 23 years at that impact spot. We have gone WR-happy and this is the cost: a defense that is without an identity. By some miracle we had a pro bowler out of the 8th round named Jessie Armstead, but those kinds of things happen to a franchise about once every 5 or 10 years, if you are lucky. So quit the prayers and stop with the Thomas Lewises, the Hilliards, the Tim Carters and Amani Toomers and Brian Alfords, the Sinorice Mosses and Joe Jurevicious WRs. I have just mentioned SEVEN WRs that went before we took a SINGLE LB the past ~13 or so years! We have used free agency to snap up Barrow and Pierce, or else we would be total dung. DRAFT A LB, prioritize defense.
