    NY GIANTS COUNTING ON A COMEBACK SEASON FROM JUSTIN TUCK

    "Justin Tuck is one of the unquestioned
    leaders of the New
    York Giants
    defense. He has been a key member of two Super Bowl
    winning teams and has been named to two Pro Bowls. He was named the 62nd best player in the NFL by his peers in an NFL Network
    ranking. Still, Justin Tuck is not satisfied.


    Last season was a bit of a disappointment
    for Tuck. Aside from winning the Super Bowl, that is. On the field, Tuck
    struggled with injuries, and struggled to stay on the field all season long. He
    only played in 12 games and
    made 11 starts and recorded 5 sacks and forced only 1 fumble after forcing 5
    each of the last two years.




    This year, Tuck has made headlines with
    his new facemask which should prevent opposing offensive linemen from getting
    their hands into his mask and twisting his head, something that contributed to
    his sore neck. With the new mask comes a new attitude as well. He sees the
    Giants as a team on the rise, a team that will only get better. Right now,
    there is no reason to doubt him. They are going to enter training camp
    with a healthy Terrell Thomas,
    their star cornerback recovering from an ACL injury. Tuck and fellow defensive
    end Osi Umenyiora are also healthy
    heading into camp giving the Giants one of the deepest defensive end rotations
    in football.




    Obviously, having a healthy Tuck would be
    a huge difference. If he can return to his 2008 or 2010 form the Giants defense
    could be among the best in the NFL. He has been determined all offseason to
    return to that form which should scare opposing quarterbacks."

        i agree. he had a tremendous game in the SB. and he played well from the jets game on really, coincidentally after TC and rolle each sat down and had a heart to heart with him.

        dont sleep on tuck. bc he was so unlike himself last season, a lot of people forget just how dominant and complete a de he can be.

        i am looking forward to a healthy tuck, especially one that is motivated to prove he is one of the best.

          He was genuinely worried about re-injuring his neck. While understandable, it tends to make you overly cautious. In the NFL, that translates into sub-par performance. He eventually got it together and we can only hope he returns to form this season.

            its tripe and a cliche but sports really is 90% mental. a split tenth of a second of doubt, confusion, or indecisiveness can be the difference between success and failure.

            after tuck had that man to man with TC, tuck seemed to really play at a much higher level. i cant recall but wasnt TC's message that he needs to go out and give it his all every second of every snap and not let his mind play games on him and to just enjoy himself and go back to having fun?
            whatever it was, it worked...i know rolles message about practicing being crucial got through to a lot of the players, tuck included and maybe even especially.

              Whatever else it is, it's true. If you hesitate making a hit, chances are you don't make it. You also don't get a second chance. Neck injuries are serious and if a player is gong to worry about a "future injury" he may as well retire.

                im not gonna lie, i was and am actually a bit worried about these injuries to tuck. they seem to be the kind that nag, like in the stage before a person needs or can even have surgery but also before being to actually heal and be at full strength. you are up to date and almost everything giants news related, what were tucks injuries and hows his health looking RF?

                  He was questioning (in the press, no less) whether he belonged on the field.

                  That lead Coughlin to tell him "just give me everything you've got".

                    Meh...Never really dominate.

                    Is stout against the run and USUALLY has a good enough motor to compile decent sack totals but not what I'd call dominant. A double team usually shuts him down completely.

                    That said our Dline has so much going on right now I don't think Tuck will see too many doubles anymore. (which is good because he has cried about being doubled in the past.) So all of the conditions point to him having a strong bounce back season.

                      Wouldn't being double teamed mean he is dominating therefore the opposing teams doubles him? Why would you double team a non dominat player to leave Osi or JPP alone?

                        The neck injury was real, then the groin, and a toe as well. Then the mind was holding him back. It's been said before, nothing new here. When he is healthy is absolutely dominat and extremely versatile.

                        Tuck is not faking injuries. He played almost an entire season a few years ago with an injured shoulder after being tripped. Not his fault and it doesn't make him injury prone.

                          Once Tuck mentally toughens up he will become one of the better Defensive Ends in football. Seriously he asked for a new facemask because Linemen is twisting his neck LOL....Tuck get more physical and get their hands off of you...a new facemask will not help that.

                              Really??, your bagging on Tuck because he had to get a new face mask due to multiple non-called penalties every game??

                              "Grasping the facemask by all players, including offensive players, will
                              continue to be strictly enforced. Specific attention is to be given to
                              the runner who twists, turns, or pulls the facemask of the defender who
                              is trying to make the tackle."
