  • CAN THEY GET ANOTHER YEAR OUT OF JUSTIN TUCK?

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1227331

    Excerpt: "Tuck is a warrior and a two-time Super Bowl champion who, not insignificantly, played tremendous during both title runs. However, injuries and time have taken their toll and, by any measure, he’s simply not the player he was.


    He had just five sacks last year, during a personally difficult season, before revitalizing himself for the playoffs. This season he’s dipped to three and he’s no longer a pass-rushing force. Worse, he’ll be 30 next season and due $4.5 million in salary.

    That’s not a ton of money and he is a team leader. The Giants also will need defensive ends with Osi Umenyiora almost certain to go elsewhere as a free agent. But the hard question has to be asked: What does Tuck have left? And what is it worth?" Read more...

    They can not go into next season relying on him and tis is coming from a fan of his. No way they should sign Osi asin unless he comes real cheap plays on passing downs.

      I wish I knew more about how contracts were structured. We look at a player making, say 7,000,000 in the upcoming season and then we say "we could cut him and have all that CAP space." But then we cut him, and we learn we're still going to pay him some or all of that money.

      I don't see how we keep Osi or Tuck and I believe their replacements are already here in Tracy and Ojomo. But unless we want to rebuild for a season, would we be wiser to keep Tuck "in the rotation" until we can get Tracy and Ojomo enough game snaps to shoulder the load?

      Diehl has to go as well, I love the guy but it's time and far behind can Snee be? Locklear can obviously replace Diehl but is Brewer the answer for Snee?

      Glad I don't have to make these decisions.

        They probably keep Tuck but they can not count on him. Last year he was ready to quit football before having a great finish. This year he has been invisible.

          Imagine having to MAKE these decisions for real?

            It's tough. They ay have to take a step further back to get better though. Have to make some cuts. Webster is a good example. Just an opinion, but they would be better off parting ways with him and going thin next year with the young guys. Then do something with that $7 million they where owing to pay Webster with.

              Very difficult, especially with a guy like Tuck has done so much for this organization over the years. However, this is a performance business where we have a limited amount of dough to spread around in order to field a championship calibre team. We are not in the charity business. I view Tuck's salary as an opportunity for us next yeas as we redeploy that into a much more productive player(s). We also have the right GM to do the right thing for the organization and its fans..
              No one remembers who came in second.

                Tough question. This year Tuck was not the Tuck of old. Tuck used to have a bull rush that was devestating. He could beat double teams. We as fans know something is wrong, but we don't know what it is. Is it an undisclosed injury? Has he lost his love of the game? He's not that old, but maybe the injuries have aged him beyond his years. Whatever it is, we need a DE, (as well as DTs) that will take some of the pressure off of JPP.
                Do not feed the trolls.

                  Tuck is done. We need fresh legs.

                    We couldn't even get this year out of him, why would we get next?

                      That's the real question. He's had injuries as do a lot of good players. In Tuck's case I think it's more mental and it's about his neck which he injured last year and let that control his activity. He either needs to forget his neck, which is easy to say, or retire.

                        Unfortunately, he has a cronic shoulder injury that shows up at the worst times every season. Probably from going on the subway weight training program.... the upside is that RGIII is on the same program, so we should see a drop off in his performance soon.

                            No, Tuck is finished. Let some other NFL team waste money on him, same for Osi.

                              Tuck would need a serious change of attitude. If his body is shot then he is done. I have a feeling its more of an attitude thing though.
