Eisen's Mailbag: Giant's Linebackers


View the best images from the first four Training Camp practices

Is training camp more on just the fundamentals of "doing your job" or are offensive and defensive schemes being introduced early? -Peter**

Dear Peter: The installation of different facts of the offense and defense continues throughout camp, which makes it as much of a mental exercise as a physical one. That being said, it doesn't help a player to learn the scheme in the classroom if he can't execute it. Everybody on the field better do their job, or they might not have one much longer.


How have the linebackers Devon Kennard, Jon Beason, and J.T. Thomas played and what do you think they can accomplish this year if they all are healthy? -Christopher

Dear Christopher: They seem to be playing well and enjoying performing in Steve Spagnuolo's defense. If they are healthy, the Giants' starting linebackers will be the strongest group they've had in a while. They are all versatile, talented players who can help ruin an opposing offense's game plans in a hurry.
