It won’t be because of lack of effort or lack of searching. (Video by William Perlman/The Star-Ledger) Well definitely put forth a great effort and turn over every rock to see if we can turn this thing around. Added Jason Pierre-Paul: “If they gave up they ain’t real Giants fans. At the end of the day, we’ll never give up on ourselves.” It was pointed out to Tuck that the NFC East is off to a rough start as a whole.

Justin Tuck is healthy, ready to wreak havoc again for Giants
Maybe hes not on that Hall of Fame level, but he was supposed to be Strahans heir apparent as the face and heart of the defense. Its a young, struggling defense now, and theres no Strahan or Antonio Pierce to pull it together. The fiery Antrel Rolle is still a major factor, but in many ways the defense gets its pulse from Tuck. The last two seasons, that wasnt much of a pulse at all except for six weeks late in 2011 when Tuck magically looked like his old self. In a six-game span he had 51/2 sacks and was a dominant presence on defense. The Giants didnt lose any of those games including a 21-17 win over New England behind Tucks two sacks in Super Bowl XLVI. That bright spot was an aberration, though, not a turning point. In 2012, Tuck endured yet another injury-plagued season and said, My performance was nowhere near what I envisioned for myself. What he envisions in 2013 is a bounce-back season during which hes a force again on defense and nobody thinks for a second that hes almost done.
After two down seasons, Justin Tuck is re-energized
Veteran NFL writer Pete Prisco of CBS Sports called Tuck the most overrated player in the NFL. “[Tuck] spent more time doing Subway commercials than playing good football in 2012,” Prisco wrote in a column last month. “He was a definite name-over-game player with just four sacks. There were times on tape where you wondered how he was ever a dominant pass rusher.” Ouch. Tuck said he doesn’t take the remarks seriously. “It would sting if I believed it, or if I cared about what [Prisco] thought of me,” Tuck said. “I don’t get caught up in people judging what I do when they can’t do it. If I said, ‘Bob, you’re a [lousy] writer,’ you shouldn’t give a damn because if you put my writing against your writing, that wouldn’t even be a contest.
Justin Tuck and the NY Giants better hope he has something left
With whispers growing louder about the job security of Tom Coughlin, Tuck says he better not hear any of that noise, lest he introduce his fist to your face. He told the New York Daily News : If anyone turns on our coach, I would be the first one to punch him in the mouth. And put that in print. It better not happen, I know that. Given the context, its hard to tell if Tucks mouth-punching threat is just for people inside the Giants locker room turns on anyone at all who turns on Coughlin. If its the latter, is he going to stake out theNew York Post offices to punch headline writers? Is he going to listen to Mike Francesa all week so he can add Dominic from Bayside to the hit list? And is this retroactive? Should Tiki Barber start walking the streets in a helmet?
Justin Tuck is going to punch any Tom Coughlin doubters
The answer might surprise you . Ive had opportunities to play the game at the highest level, the Super Bowl, Ive had opportunities to get sacks and big plays at the Super Bowl. Ive also had opportunities to hunt some of the more majestic animals that God has put on this earth. I dont know if I could put one higher than the other, but theyre both pretty awesome. Interesting. Sacking the golden boy is equivalent to shooting a glorious animal trophy? It makes some sense, sure, but there are plenty of differences. Does that animal have a contract with Uggs ? Is he coached by an older stag wearing a ripped sweatshirt and lugging around a video camera to tape the habits of other deer?
