Beason may not return to be a starter

Should have kept Anderson, and let Beason go.  

 

Did the NFL get rid of the salary cap while I wasn't looking?

I've begun to think that he will be a starter again at some point...

...but it won't be with this team :(

The next great Linebacker for the New York Jets

Blackburn has been and is a good linebacker ....played well for the Giants....cap issues why he left. Beasons body is pretty beat up at this point and probably will never be the same. Blackburn is healthy and his wheels are still good. I feel bad for Beason but this team has to start winning now.

Absolutely love Beason and hope he recovers but if he can't run any better better than he did in Buffalo, then Blackburn should start.

Should have kept Anderson, and let Beason go. Beason was great prior to getting hurt, but has not played up to his 100% in nearly 2-years. Unfortunately, his story could end up similar to another great MLB that Beason was picked to replace. When Morgan was healthy, he was one of the best MLB in the NFL. Beason replaced him.

Anderson was meh I'd rather roll the dice with Beason any day

Blackburn played ONE (1) game as a starter... and...it was  against his old team, which he more then easily can recognize formations and plays ect...  and we happened to win that game.  How does that mean all of you jump on the Blackburn wagon?  Just because we won the game?  won 1 game? oh boy

 

Blackburn is not some chump signed off the couch. He was a 15 game starter for the Giants last year and a team captain.

 

On the other hand, Beason has looked like a liability when on the field. If he is not the better player today (not 3 years ago) among the choices available to the coaches, he shouldn't play. It's really that simple.

Blackburn started all year for the Giants last year and played very well. Where are you guys saying, "Ohh well he's only played 1 game ever, lets see him play some other team besides his former team", coming from? He played against teams other than his former team, ALL YEAR last year.

Injuries have taken Jon's athleticism and speed. It's damn shame but hopefully his game improves as gets healthier. Remember Jon barely played in the 4 exhibition games.

Blackburn got an int on tom brady in the superbowl. What does that does that have to do with blackburn and him being on the panthers? Nothing really, but blackburn has made great plays before and plays with intensity. I trust blackburn right now more than beason.

I seem to recall someone saying that Beasons injury is one that is very hard to recover from.  Is that correct?  if he does come back to even rotating at the position, it looks as if it is going to take quite a while.  I'm glad that Blackburn is available.
