    Tuck almost retired.......

    Maybe this made the news when Tuck was "confessing" last year at his low point, but I don't recall
    hearing he was thinking retirement.

    no question he was doubting his abilities and his drive to play at a top level. Glad he came back and he isnt going anywhere

    Glad he stuck through it. He was riddled with injuries last year and was probably thinking about being able to walk when he is 40, unlike Osi. Wonder if this came out around the same time Osi said he would probably be in a wheelchair at 40. Makes you really think. Is it worth it?

    Hopefully he stays healthy this season, cause if he battles another tough year with nagging injuries, he may call it quits, then we need to fill Osi and Tucks spots next season.

    Justin Tuck showed a lot of courage by admitting his fears publically and them conquering those fears and self doubts to become the defensive leader thay we have so desperately needed since Michael Straham retired.

    Justin Tuck showed NY Giant Big Blue Pride and Heart. I am very proud of him.

    I bELIeve.

    One could sum up Tuck's season in two plays.

    1) During the Monday Night Saints clinic, Tuck had a sack lined up on Brees, but Bress eluded his rush then ran toward the sideline and made the pass for a 1st down while Tuck stayed at the same spot in the pocket giving up on his knees.

    2) During the NFC East championsip regular season finale vs. Dallas, Tuck had a sack lined up on Romo, but Romo eluded his rush then ran toward the sideline. Tuck chased after Romo and crushed him from behind forcing a fumble.

    I'm glad Tuck was able to turn it around and emerge as a vocal leader and a leader by example. He was great in the Super Bowl too
