    Difference between the GIANTS and the jets...

    Did you notice yesterday that Canty, Boley, and Bradshaw had nothing but nice things to say about the GIANTS after they were let go?

    Meanwhile every jet that leaves, even some coaches, cannot not stop talking about how bad the locker room was or how bad Tebow was?

    We have a winning environment in our organization and handle everything the right way and treat everyone with respect, and make sure everyone understands that the team is what matters.

    I am so glad we have people like Coughlin and Reese running the show for the Mara's and Tisch's.

    I know we came up short this year, but Canty Boley and Bradshaw enforced what we knew to be good about the GIANTS.

    I'm glad these guys being released now are true class acts. I will really miss them and wish them well in their future endeavors, in or out of football.

    But it was not always that way. Plax, Tiki, and Shockey were some of the most selfish people, but all predated TC. SS12 didn't predate TC, but he flipped straight traitor on us going to Philly even though we had given him an offer, and called Reese a liar in public. No love there. But I look at guys more recently... Manningham, Jacobs, and now the three that were released now, and all of them have nothing but good things to say about the Giants. Jacobs said after his, uhh, experience at the hands of Jim Harbaugh that he would only ever play for the Giants (which means it's likely he's going to retire now). It's a far cry from the hate that other former Giants used to give...

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.

    "Class act" is the most overused phrase on this message board.

    Class starts at the top of any organization and it's something you can't manufacture. Either you have it or you don't and the Mara's built this team showing the way.

    I never saw Smith as a "traitor" but did see him as being gullible to believe he was going to get healthy sooner in Igglesland. I always saw that more as the Eagles not wanting Smith here, rather than wanting him there.

    So true. Class and attitude reflect leadership.

    Don't worry, no one is going to use it on you.

    I tend to agree with you, but another train of thought that's tossed around is that Smith had a good idea of how bad his injury really was and wanted to get paid the most that he could at the time knowing that he would never see that money again in case he never really did recover.
    Either way, I don't fault him.
