Perhaps one of the shining lights of the Giants defense has been the play of their linebackers, and specifically, the play of linebacker Jon Beason. Beason, who was acquired?from the Carolina Panthers at the beginning of October, has done a tremendous job at the middle linebacker position and he has gained a lot of attention from the media, fans and more importantly, the respect from his team.
"He walked in the door and like I said earlier, the guys gravitated to him and he has that type of personality, he?s that type of a leader," said linebackers coach Jim Herrmann. "He?s a very upbeat leader and it is.? He has an infectious personality.? Most great leaders are.? You see that in him.? To be able to walk into the door and play right away, that?s not easy."
