    I have no intention of going back and forth so after my comment here, I'll even leave you with the last word if you like.

    Justin Tuck was very close to retiring within the last two years and had to be convinced to continue playing. It seems fairly apparent to many, including myself, that he isn't hungry to play the game anymore and as a result, Tuck's productively has significantly declined.

    If that is true the reporters are NOT doing their job by repeating old news as if it is new news.

    I dont think him thinking about retiring has anything to do with him wanting or being willing to put in the effort of playing.

    I think it has far more to do with his body breaking down and his injuries such, as his neck, both scaring him, and constantly hurting him.

    I honestly think his concerns about his neck play a big part in the drop off in his performance. He acknowledged it in 2011, near the end of the season. If you worry about your neck in 2011, don't have it attended to after the season, it's not likely he's no longer worried about it.

    IMO, He has never been the same since FatF**k Flozell Adams tripped him and he hurt his shoulder.

    And wasn't Martellus Bennet spouting off about signing his brother Michael from the bucs and how he is planning to lobby inorder to get him here? Is he a RFA/UFA this year? Is this a possibility at all?

    All Bennett said was he'd love to play here with his brother

    Hey, he should be concerned about his neck. That doesn't mean we need to pay him like it's 2007. What we are really paying for is production and in a perfect world, next year's prodcution not last year or 4 years ago. That means that Tuck is worth alot less to us next year.Hopefully he understands that and leaves us with some extra cash to reload another SB calibre roster.
