Just seeing the behind the scenes sights and sounds footage from the last few games these guys are just kids....excited kids.....having fun and playing the game with passion and fire. Not to say the rest of the team wasn't excited nor playing with fire but it just seems different with these two......fresh and not forced.
They're arguably the Giants' best offensive and defensive players on the team. At times this season when it seemed like the Giants were just going through the motions of another game it was these two kids who kept on making game changing play after game changing play.......when all the expectations of a season and weight of the moment should be falling on the shoulders of seasoned veterans it was thesekids who turned it onand got Big Blue through.....I'm in awe.....JPP (only 23) bailed out Tuck (Captain)and the D's early struggles and Cruz (only 25) has bailed out Eli (Captain) and the O on numerous occassions.......they seem tojust work harder than EVERYONE (both teams included) on the field.....I wonder if this has to do with them being young and hungry and initially without expectations.....wonder if the fire and excitement they bring will wear down over time.....I hope not.
It's scary to think each of these guys are still pretty raw with hopefully at least5-10 yearsin front of them as Giants.
