  • Tuck Era coming to an end

    Hey fellas, been on the board for a while lurking but never posted. Loving the win yesterday.

    Watching the games this season and last, it just doesnt seem like Tuck has it like he used to. He is about 30 now. He's still a solid DE but I dont see him getting much pressures or even blowing up runs or screen passes in the backfield like he used and you'd think with teams focusing on JPP more so, he'd have more opportunities to make some big plays. Feel like I hardly get to see him do his bow anymore lol.

    Imo Kiwi looks like much better DE. He's big, physical, ferocious as a pass rusher and can even drop into coverage from his time learning OLB which could add some wrinkles to Fewell's playcalling. Unless something changes with Tuck, I see Kiwi and JPP being our main DEs by next season and Tuck as the 3rd guy in the rotation that can even play some DT.

    Just a thought I've been having this season.

    I agree hw ahsnt looked great, but he turned it up in the playoffs last year. In the end Tuck will be right there. i think he is about to go buck wild with sacks. put together a real nice string.

      is this the new standard celebration????

      we won, so let's trash a great Giants player and leader and Super Bowl hero!!!

      Tuck played tons of snaps and we only yielded 3 points to a team you probably thought was better than us !!!

      did Yankees fans secretly celebrate Jeter's broken ankle, so they could see the NEXT guy???? im thinking some probably did/are ...

        Oh how quickly we forget his 2 sacks in the superbowl - one leading to a safety. Judge a player by his overall career not just his game to game. Yes the numbers aren't there but he is not being replaced. Like every giant he will be evaluated at years end. Make no mistake Tuck is still a huge asset to the team. No reason the giants cant get kiwi more plays with his hand in the dirt which will lead to a fresher osi and tuck. Although tuck also moves to tackle on many a passing down. He is still a force and he will show up. Be patient.

          Well to paraphraze what Tuck said: this is only one game. It's not about how you are playing in September, it's where you are in January and February. He knows it's a long road. I think Tuck maybe keeping some gas in the tank for later this season.

            yeah, I agree.

            @tragic22 - welcome to the board. But I think we need to take a step back. Until yesterday he wasn't the only person on defense that wasn't playing well. Tuck is still effective. The guy isn't super man. He got double team quite often this season because tackles didn't play well. Fewell realized that and mixed up DEs and allowed some of them to play DT. San Fran wasn't expecting that at all. The sky isn't falling Tuck is still a good player. I think we are just spoiled that he isn't playing on an elite level. When it mattered, he steps up.
            Lets go, Giants!

              For this being your first post I'd have to say you picked a really bad one. You obviously haven't been watching the Giants play, if you had than you'd realize Tuck is being asked to do a lot. Besides that he had a good solid game yesterday.

                  I don't think anybody has been tearing it up, even JPP has barely had his name mentioned. I don't know why you single out Tuck.

                  Let's see what happens when Canty gets back.

                    This is my opinion as well!

                      Tuck isnt the same guy he was before all these injuries, hell, even last year he was contimplating retirement. Some guys last longer then others, but Tuck can still contribute. It may be nearing an end for Tuck and Osi, but man what a great ride it was with these 2 DE's.

                      That said, I have seen Tuck and Osi playing better as of late. Lots of people bash Osi, but he had some serious burst yesterday off the line. I specifically watched him, since he had more snaps then Tuck and JPP.

                      I think we will see these guys start to shine again and rack up some sacks once Canty and Bernard return. Tough to get the sacks when a QB can just step up and avoid the rush.

                      And of course we all know, it isnt how we start, but how we finish. These guys may be saving their best for down the stretch when we really need it, just like last year.

                        Pro football weekly had TUCK ranked as the 5th best DE in the LEAGUE. So no it's not ending. He's not Jared Allen but he doesn't need to be when he has 3 jared allens around him.

                          It's funny to hear some of you guys say judge him by his past accomplishments, and what he has done to help us win. Do you guys care to extend the same sentiment to Osi as well?

                            I agree with the poster who just said that when we get Bernard and Canty back and can start collapsing the pocket so the QB has no place to step up into then the sacks will come because the QB will be right where we want him to be, between the cross hairs..
