For the second time in three weeks, a member of the Giants is saying an upcoming opponent gets away with murder.
Before the Giants played the 49ers, New York offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said San Francisco defensive end Justin Smith gets away with murder. And now Giants defensive end Justin Tuck is saying the same thing about Sunday’s opponents, the Steelers.
“I hope we get some holding calls because they have gotten away with murder,” Tuck told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols. “They’ve done a very good job protecting Ben — they don’t hold on every play. But we’ve seen a whole lot of it.”
It’s probably safe to say Steelers coach Mike Tomlin won’t respond quite as harshly as 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh did to the previous “getting away with murder” accusation. But the Steelers’ offensive linemen may have something to say to Tuck on Sunday.
