Good morning Giants fans. In their continuing quest to figure out the linebacker rotation, the Giants have been using Keith Bulluck at strong-side linebacker. When asked if he believes this is good for him, Bulluck responded:
"At this point, it doesn’t matter. It’s a different system. In the past month or so, I’ve been practicing at the middle linebacker, and the last two practices, I’ve been at the outside linebacker. It really doesn’t matter. I just want to get out there, help, and contribute, and be the best linebacker I can be for this team. If and when my number is called, I’ll be ready."
Clint Sintim sounds like he's embraced having Bulluck around, saying that he "embraces" the competiton:
"I mean the guy’s been in the league, like I said, for a decade. He knows the ins and outs of the game that I don’t really know too well-what I can look for, what I can do better and things like that. I’m excited to be out here and just really kind of take his two cents in from somebody who’s played the game versus somebody who’s actually coached and you can kind of see it a little bit different. That’s a big benefit to me"
Kenny Phillips is scheduled to see a lot more of the field on Sunday against the Ravens. Whether you see this as a positive reflection on Phillips' recovery or a negative reflection on the Giants banged up secondary probably has a lot to do with how you see the world. Personally, I think it's good news.
- David Diehl has more than pride on the line in his fight to hold onto the left tackle position, as does newly signed Shawn Andrews.
