    So what weighed him down?

    I just don't get this comment and other anti-Tuck comments here.
    Just because some people including myself dont think Tuck is much more than an average DE starter at this point doesnt mean we hate him. The proof is on the field he hasnt performed to the level this team needs or expects . His shoulder is a big part of it his body is breaking down. I love what Tuck has done over the years but if the Giants can replace him with a better player so be it

    Many people can tell when someone is motivated and energetic. Many people, including Enigma agree with point number three. In fact, I can read Tuck's body language easier than reading a pop-up book. You obviously don't play poker or you would understand.

    Also, what was the reason for his consecutive poor seasons?

    1) His injury is worse than expected and he can't play like he use to.
    2) He is disinterested and unmotivated?
    3) He is too old to play effectively

    If your answer is 3 or 1, why would you even want him back on the team?
    You can retort with all the pithy comments you want. There is no way Justin Tuck is "disinterested" on the field. That is a completely ridiculous contention.
    And there is no way a fan could tell with "body language" that a player is disinterested either. To suggest to the interest of a player can be guaged by fans at the stadium or on TV is silly.

    I don't know, that is a good question but if he told the story once about 5 weeks ago, why does it keep popping up in one media outlet or another every 7 days since then?
    If this all came from one soul serching moment weeks ago, I would submit that the media IS NOT doing its job because they are conveying an improper context to us ie Tuck can't let go of this theme and is obsessing about it while trying to convince himself he's got something left in the tank.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    What Tuck is saying is that his C on his jersey weighs 20 lbs and is weighing him down during games.

    That's kind of what I got out of it. I really think they should make someone else the captain, and tell Tuck to find himself.

    Find it hard to believe he keeps calling these reporters to tell them he wants to get better next year.
