        Tuck's just trying to get them prepared for NFL football...he's the D captain and he should be more vocal. He didn't specifically call out any 1 player in the media, so I have no problem with this

          I think it revolves around effort in practice. Tuck has always been vocal about the vibes he gets during practice and has mentioned in the past during some of our ugly losses, like against the Saints, that the team had a bad week of practice.

          The vets know what winning feels like, they also know about the dark days of losing seasons - so they probably prepare during the week like it's the last game they'll ever play, but the young guys are looking at it as just another day of practice.


          “Basically just stay with your man,” cornerback Janoris Jenkins said. “Follow him everywhere you go. Even if he goes to the bathroom, follow him.”

            This is great news as far as I'm concerned. This is exactly what you want the veterans to do - provide leadership. Tuck said nothing derogatory towards anyone. He and the other veterans just said the youngsters need to pick it up a bit. My glass half empty just got a little fuller.

              Tuck should shut up. He had what I consider one of his quietest games as a Giant! Our captain was standing on the sideline sulking after he missed a big tackle on Murray. I mean he was as much a non factor in that game as anyone on the team. He is supposed to be the leader and I sure didn't see his sense of urgency.

                i personally had no issue with what he said except for the fact he made it public. talk to the young guys face2face, not thru the media, bc then u get the media saying "tuck pointing his finger..." and bs like that. i also dont know what the author is referring to, she says that canty, kp, and jpp all had strong words on the matter but i dont know what they said

                  I agree. Just like the Prince tub incident I believe this stuff should be kept in house. Have no problem with Tuck trying to motivate and prepare these rooks, but don't give the media something like that to run with. They just create extra and unnecessary drama.

                    with Tuck as one of the team leaders i think he is using this language to motivate the younger players.

                    if it works i have no problem with his comments. he knows his locker room and how they operate so he needs to take charge!

                      The deal with Tuck talking is, as a defensive captain, I am sure he has stepped his game up during this week after watching the game film. I would almost say that he is pumping his guys up as well. When it goes on print, and the public see it, word gets back to the players and puts a chip on their shoulders. When that happens .....Look Out cause we all know what happens when our Giants get a chip on their shoulders and feel like they are playing against all odds......They Win! Good on Tuck for this and for not calling out any players!

                        I would rather he motivate the younger players with his play onthe field.

                          Man, leaders fail too. This is Tuck AND the other veterrans(not just Tuck, he was just singled out)stepping up and saying that something has to be done and that there is too much coddling of the young guys. What you have to look at in this article is at what point did his conversation get recorded? Maybe the interviewer left out the whole, the veterans need to step up part in order to make his point for this article. It even seems to start in the middle of a conversation, not at the beginning. Also, they jump to the assumption that this is why Prince was thrown in the tub. This is lazy and shoddy writing more than anything

                          The young guys look up to the older guys, even the crusty veteran that may have lost a step. The thing is he has been there and he knows how to win. If anything, Tuck should not shut up and he should demand more out of the people he is the leader of and of himself.

                          You cannot expect a leader to succeed all the time. Somebody has to step up and Tuck is that man. The last few years folks around these boards were crying there was no vocal leader, but now there is one they're still crying. I'm lost.

                            The writer, Kareem Copeland, is creating drama where there is none.

                            I have to agree with Rat. This is crap writing.

                              good point. this could be some sort of well intentioned ploy to get the younger guys playing mad and with a purpose
