An unhappy Osi is in Atlanta. Lawrence Tynes, who kicked two winning field goals in overtime, is gone.
Rookie Damontre “Da Monster” Moore will be learning how to sack NFL passers. Josh Brown will be kicking.
What Happened to Justin Tuck?
Defensive Captain Justin Tuck is entering the final year of his contract.
In 2011, Tuck was ranked at #60 on the NFL Top 100, a list of the NFL’s best players, chosen by the players. Tuck dropped to #62 in 2011. He was not chosen for the list in 2012. Tuck acknowleged that he has not played well. Tuck said:
I realize I haven’t played my best the last two years, whether it be injuries or the circumstances surrounding this team. Who knows? I knew it was time for me to try something different.
Tuck credits walking on hot coals at a seminar led by motivational expert Tony Robbins for his improved attitude. Robbins said:
I just took him through a process where he identified some of the most limiting beliefs in his head, about why he wasn’t performing, about why things weren’t fair.
Bring Back Brandon Jacobs
Tuck wanted the Giants to bring Brandon Jacobs back last year. I think Jacobs, David Wilson, and new Tight End Brandon Myers would be awesome together.
Giants added undrafted TE Chase Clement yesterday.
New York Giants face the Denver Broncos in their home opener. It will be the third Manning Bowl. Peyton Manning won the first two games with the Colts. Eli said:
Anytime you play your brother, it is special, and it is unique. And I cherish those moments, whether before the game, or looking across during the national anthem, seeing my big brother, seeing him at the coin flip. Those are great moments that we’ll cherish.
When Are The New York Giants on TV?
I created a simple, easy–to–read 2013 schedule. I added links to each opponent’s Web site, because I enjoy reading their opinion of Giants games. I will update the schedule with the results throughout the season.
