These are the Giants Top 10 Linebackers of All Time. Being a linebacker for the New York Giants is hard enough, but to be in the top 10 of all time is a quite accomplishment.
A linebacker is a person that has no regard for his own body, willing to sacrifice himself so that his teammates can rally behind him and take the person out. Linebackers are the main guys of the defense. They make the call and run the show on the field.
A middle linebacker is the general of the defense, also the quarterback of defense. You as a defensive coordinator always put your best tackler and most hard nose player at the middle linebacker position.
Simply you have to be a leader on the field, you are the one that has to set the tone early. That's what a linebacker's suppose to do.
