It’s been a Giants-heavy day at PFT, with Rosey interviewing safety Antrel Rolle in a special segment of PFT Live and yours truly interviewing defensive end Justin Tuck while guest-hosting The Dan Patrick Show.

Tuck talked about plenty of topics, including the prospects of the Giants pulling off the upset at Lambeau Field.

“We’re a very confident bunch,” Tuck said.  “To be the best, you gotta beat the best.”

Tuck also talked about far more important matters, such as why Osi Umenyiora’s jersey is so tight and how Umenyiora manages to get out of his pads after games.

Tuck also downplayed the recent “guarantee” from Jason Pierre-Paul that the Giants will win the game.

  1. “To be the best, you gotta beat the best”???

    First of all, the Falcons were nowhere near the best.

    Second of all, they still have the Packers to deal with.

    Don’t get on you’re high horse yet Tuck!

  2. Wow, finally a compliment for the Packers (albeit a backhanded one) out of the Giants. I’m impressed.

    That said, I love Justin Tuck. The guy’s a monster. I know his face mask is designed to prevent further injury to his neck, but it’s friggin’ awesome. Makes him look like some kind of ninja cyborg.

    =====================================

    Wow !! you really should read that again Dude, real slow this time !!

    Tuck is saying that the packers are the best right now and now we have to beat them to be the best.

  4. @ch1ckendinner: What high horse? Tuck is just stating the obvious. He’s actually complimenting GB.

    @binarybulge: hysterical name. Tuck’s face mask = cyborg ninja OR Shredder from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

  5. I thought it was to be the best you have to be the best on the field? Not shooting your mouth off…….must be a new york thing…..Rex…..Pierre paul…….rolle……

    r u stupid? Tuck was referring to the Packers. Everyone knows the Packers are the best team in football. The Giants have their work cut out for them this weekend.

  7. So according to Tuck if the Giants win the Superbowl does that mean that the Redskins are the BEST? Or Seattle, San Fransisco, Philly, New Orleans, or Green Bay.

    Or maybe if you beat them twice. Than the Redskins and possibly the Packers are better than your team.

    Any way you look at it your team cannot be the best Tuck.

  8. Hey Tuck…you had your chance to beat the best on Monday Night in New Orleans but got spanked…again. Go ahead and get you a win in Green Bay this weekend then, c’mon back down here so we can spank dat %@# once more!

  9. “So, Jason (Pierre-Paul), do you think the Giants will win this week?” “NO, Definitely not.” “We are the worst!”

    What’s the guy supposed to say?

    Lets jump on every last bit of media crap and fall for it ever time.

    Have all you guys signed up for the Discount Double Check at State Farm too?

    Wuh? Really? The Chefs walked GB so according to all of this logic, they are the best.

  11. If Elie plays like the franchise QB some of you say he is, the Giants can win. That DL is incredible. No QB can withstand constant pressure and constant hits/take-downs the entire game.

  12. Cross your fingers that ALL the playoff games get officials worthy of the responsibility. Worst year ever for officiating.

    Wuh? I didn’t know there was a team named after the guy from “South Park”. And by the way…”walked”??????

  14. As a New England fan I will say this:

    The last team anyone should want to play right now is the NY Giants.

    Pack fan, they get to the QB without the blitz with a sensational D-line and have a truly “elite” QB. I expect a close game and would not be at all surprised with a Giants win.

  15. I remember last January being on this site and all the posts saying the Packers wouldnt be able to handle the Pittsburgh blitzs
    I remember at Thanksgiving how the experts said the Packers couldnt handle Detroits D line
    Now im hearing how the Packers cant handle Big Blues greatest D line ever.
    The Packers play the 2 premier pass rushers in this league in Julius Peppers and Jarrod Allen 2 times every year. They seem to survive that

    Big Blue , your front 4 is good but your back 7 well there not so good. And bravo for beating Atlanta By the way the Packers do that on a regular basis. Except we like to go to their house to do it.

  16. cap1378,
    That’s great that the Giants are peaking at the eight time. The Packers have been peaking since mopping the floor with your team last year and they’re even healthier than the Giants. Watch out NY. Just sayin.
