LB Michael Boley on depth of Giants Linebacking unit

Re: depth of this year’s linebacker corps
A:  We’ve actually got a lot of depth this year.  It’s a good thing for us, Spencer (Paysinger) can fill in and do some work, Mark (Herzlich), those guys can easily pick up a slot. 

Q:  Different than last year’s lack of depth?
A:  Yeah.  I’ve always been part of the team that had a thin linebacker corps.  Now having a lot of depth, it’s a bonus. 

Q:  Can you play a full game if need be?
A:  Yeah, did it for eight years. 

Q:  Even with the hamstring injury?
A:  Yeah, that’s not an issue anymore.  Finally got that behind me. 

Q:  Are you looking forward to playing more?
A:  Oh yeah, most definitely.  Anytime.  Competitors don’t like to leave the field, and I’m one of those guys.  I’m looking forward to being out there for awhile.

Q:  Are you 100% now?
A:  Yeah, feeling good. 

Q:  What’s the mood on the defense?
A:  Something to build on.  That gave us a chance to actually sit back and look at things that we need to correct within ourselves, as well as what the other team does.

Q:  Will you guys look to defend Vincent Jackson differently?
A:  No.  We have some corners that can match up, and do a pretty good job on him, and get hands on him.

Q:  You expect to start right?
A:  Yeah, I expect to.  Unless something changes between now and then.
