The Big Blue View New York Giants free agency bracket challenge continues to roll along. No surprise in our last match-up as second-seeded Plaxico Burress easily advanced past seventh-seeded Fred Robbins, getting 93 percent of the vote (491-37).

Our final first-round match-up is an interesting one. It pits third-seeded linebacker Antonio Pierce against sixth-seeded center Bart Oates.

Pierce was a Giant for five seasons, quarterbacking the defense from his middle linebacker spot from 2005-2009 before a neck injury ended his career. He made the Pro Bowl in 2006 and helped the Giants win a Super Bowl in 2007.

Oates signed with the Giants after beginning his professional career in the USFL. He spent nine seasons as the team's starting center, making the Pro Bowl three times and helping the Giants win a pair of Super Bowl titles. He also made the Pro Bowl in the final two years of his career, while playing with the San Francisco 49ers.

Vote in the poll and let us know which player should advance to the semi-final round.
