    Paul Posluszny Says Hed Like to be a Giant

    Poz - Athlonsports.com

    This morning on Sirius radio with Bob Papa and Howard Cross, Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny said that he would like to play for the Giants. He went on to add that he had previously sat down to dinner with Ernie Accorsi and that he wished Accorsi would have stayed another year to put in a good word for him.

    Frankly, I dont think a good word needs to be put in for Poz. While he may not be a combine monster, he is a hell of a football player. I realize people are going to pick apart his 40 time and claim hes to slow, or break down some other meaningless combine stat but the facts remain; Poz is a ballhawk and an amazing athlete. Not to mention he wants to play in New York for the Giants there is something to be said for that after last season and this offseason.

    I cant sit here and say the jury is out on him. I honestly believe that Poz will be the real deal in the NFL. Hes a leader, a hard worker and a great linebacker. Hes won both the Chuck Bednarik award and the Dick Butkus award; something only one other Penn State linebacker has ever done. There are various other awards and accomplishments hes earned but it would take three hours to list them.

    If the Giants want someone proven, hes as proven as its going to get. Dissect his numbers all you want, some NFL team is going to get a great deal when they draft this guy. I can only hope it will be the Giants.









    I think he is gonna be our pick and its gonna be a great one at that. He can step right in and start for us. he produces and thats the bottom line. He gets it done.

    I wouldn't be upset with Poz at all. I like him as a player alot. The only concerns I have with him is the fact that he's injured his knee already. That, and I think our LB situation isn't as bad as people think.

    Id love him at SAM.

      He sucked in coverage and looked lost at times, according to the stuff i saw at senior bowl week.

        i agree with shocking, we need coverage at LB. With gerris' speed, i'd like to see him cover TE's and put perhaps poz on the other side(of course pierce middle) mitchell doesnt need to start.

        i still feel CB is still more of a need

          I'm growing on him a bit, but i'd still take either one off the top 3 CBs, or Lawrence Timmons in round 1.

            He really fits a Coughlin type player...the more I think about it the more sense it makes.

              He should want to go higher. Dummy.

                Just the fact that he wants to play for Coughlin is astonishing. He must be a damn hard worker.

                Off Topic - Coughlin compared himself to Hitler recently.

                        lol, understandable. I'm taking that quote and running with it just like the rest of the media.

                          I've been a fan of Paul Posluszny, along with GFR, for quite some time. I like his passion for the game, and the fact that he wants to play for the Giants is a huge plus in my mind. You know if he wants to play for them (and who knows, he may be a fan) that he'll give it his all for the team.

                          Also, a lot of people are down on him because of his injury, which I think is a bit overblown. He recovered fine, and while did not play superb, keep in mind that type of injury can take over two years to fully recover from. Just look at guys like Will Demps, who was recovering from the same thing - and as timed passed, he got better and better until he was really doing a great job for us in the secondary the latter half of the season.

                          Not to mention that Paul is still young, and it's a lot easier to have an injury like that when you're young because you'll recover a lot better.

                          I think he's pretty decent at coverage, and he could sort of be a jack of all trades. If Antonio needs breather, send him in, if Wilkinson needs one, send him in, if Mitchell does, send him in. I think it'd make for a great rotation and in a year when he's got some experience under his belt, he can step in at SAM or WILL.

                            I'd rather go secondary, OT and WR before LB

                              I agree with that Damix. I'm a fan of trading down, and if Paul is still around, take him. Otherwise I'd like to trade down and get a chance at Chris Houston or perhaps a guy I've been intrigued with lately, Joe Staley.
