Giants owner John Mara said that Sunday’s win over Philly was the team’s biggest regular season win in a while.
For Giants star Justin Tuck, who is struggling with a neck injury, the win was a reason to believe.
“You’re human,” Tuck said. “You think about the injuries. You think about the people that aren’t here,” Tuck said via Bob Glauber of Newsday. “For me personally, it helped me believe even more in this football team. I do believe in them and I did before we won this game, but now there’s no doubt whatsoever that when we play our style of football, we can beat anybody.”
I picked the Giants to win the NFC East before the year, but it sounds like it took the Giants players longer to forget about all their injuries.
“I think it’s the point in which we’re going to stop worrying about the injuries,” Matthias Kiwanuka said. “After this game, we know this team is good enough to compete with anybody in the NFL, and we have to approach every game that way.”
The Giants are right in the middle of a wide open NFC East race. They know things are going well when they start pissing off Eagles fans.
“I’ve never seen some many middle fingers,” Tuck tweeted last night. “Wow. We just had a 7-maybe 8- year-old throw a beer at the bus. #greatparents. Not.”
