    Just looked at Yahoo sports depth chart for Giants and they have Zack DeOssie listed as a starting linebacker. Also, Tollefson and Kehl are 2nd teamers who might have a chance at some playing time. just wondering how likely it really is for a white starter on the black dominated Giants defense.

    So much for that hope. Now they have DeOssie, Kehl and Blackburn listed as the three linebacker backups, a snow patrol in waiting.

    Also what I've been wondering since Umenyiora went down. I saw Tollefson in the rotation only a few times last year, and knew deep down that they wouldn't consider him for the starting job.

    Heck, they moved a linebacker to DE before they gave a white athlete a chance.

    Tom Coughlin's Super Bowl winning formula -- white QB, white TE, mostly white o-line, all black everywhere else.


    I hope and expect that the Giants will not come close to repeating.
