  • Justin Tuck Says Giants Can Be "The Best Team In The League"...

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river


    Excerpt: "The Giants returned to work today after their bye week ready to begin a difficult final six-game stretch of their season. Coming off back-to-back losses hasn't affected the confidence of the defending Super Bowl champions, defensive captain Justin Tuck said.

    "I think everybody on this team feels that we can be the best team in the league when we’re playing our style of football," Tuck said. "It’s just unfortunate that we haven’t played our style of football the last couple of weeks. We have to find a way to get back to playing that, because it’s going to be needed leading up to these next weeks."

    The Giants play the Packers this week, the start of a difficult final slate that includes the Redskins, Saints, Falcons, Ravens and Eagles.

    The Giants are 6-4 and still atop the NFC East, though the Cowboys closed the gap to one game with a win against the Browns yesterday. After rattling off four straight wins, the Giants dropped consecutive games against the Steelers and the Browns, but Tuck disagreed that the team lost confidence.

    "Not confidence, just maybe a little focus. We lost a little focus," he said, adding: "I think we’ve always been very confident. Sometimes maybe too confident; borderline ****y a little bit. But our confidence will never be -- I don’t think it will ever waver on this team." Read more...

    All i know is, no matter if we go 12-4 or 8-8, as long as we get into the playoffs it's a different game. Giants are a different animal come playoff time, we are like the Miami Heat of the NFL. No one will want to face us in the playoffs.

      They were the best team in the League, the team that beat the 9ers is currently on vacation...

          I would be more interested if Tuck would stop saying things, and start doing things instead. He's had more quotes than plays this year.

            I think the Pack is the best when healthy and if they get hot nobody will want to face us if we get in the playoffs. I think the same about the Giants too.

                instead of saying this stupidity i wish he would say something along the lines of " i'm gonna stop whining, get my big girl panties on and perform instead of talking"

                obviously he is going to say this. i mean did we expect for him to say we are the worst in football and i doubt we will get any better?

                this talking by all our players is so out of the ordinary for a Giant...

                  Tuck's been "saying" a lot this season. I would like to see more "doing."

                      Actions speak louder than words. You are what your record is. We are a 6-4 team. White noise to me.

                        I hate being critical of a guy like Tuck because he is just trying to be a good interview, but I am reminded of the espression, "Talk is Cheap, Play the Games" I like that expression.
                        No one remembers who came in second.

                          I agree with you and Sharick but Tuck has credibility with me...him getting healthy and turning it on late last year was as important as anything when it came to the run they went on..he seems to pick his spots, he showed up against pittsburg, and usually does in big games...Im anxious to see him play this Sunday.

                            sounds like what he is saying is "Fewell is not playing them the way they should be played....and I believe that but it is hard to hear coming from Tuck because his production, effort and demeanor suggest a loss of desire and heart to me

                              he looks tired even when he's not playing
