Boley had hip surgery. Uggh.
Problem here is that Boley needed the reps in training camp to get comfortable with the defense… ie stop thinking and start playing. Barrow and Pierce both were very intelligent linebackers and both took ~ half a season to get in synch with everything to the point where both were making an impact. Between the injury and missing camp, this means Boley will likely not make the kind of impact we were expecting in 2009. He’ll be out there but it just means LBer is still a Giant weakness.
