Tuck upset about Strahan's rippage

On Tuesday, former Giants great (and current Subway spokesman) Michael Strahan went out of his way to criticize his former team, telling the Dan Patrick Show that the squad should be ashamed of itself for the way it blew a 21-point lead to the Eagles.

“The end of the game was fitting because you don’t let a team back in when you’re up like that,” Strahan said in his interview. “The Giants have not finished. I don’t know if they know how to finish, and they need to learn how if they expect to do anything this year. You have to have a killer instinct. You have to finish teams.”

Which is funny to current Giants standout Justin Tuck, who seems to recall that Strahan played on the Giants squad which surrendered a 21-point fourth-quarter lead to the Panthers in 2006.

Sure, Strahan was injured and didn’t play in that game, but to Tuck, those are just insignificant details.

“Strahan was on that team and we lost that game,” Tuck said, via the NY Post. “He was on the team, we fed off his leadership. We’ve all had times in our careers and times we’ve been on teams when things didn’t go our way, I don’t start pointing fingers.”

And that wasn’t all Tuck had to say.

“I don’t understand how – I’m not saying he’s not on our side – but he’s talking to us one day and the next day you say that,” Tuck said. “If I’m in that situation I might just close my mouth and say nothing. He’s entitled to his opinion and I’m entitled to not really care.”

I can understand why Tuck (who's pictured at right with Strahan in happier times) would feel hurt by the comments of Strahan, who was one of Tuck’s mentors and who (I assume) didn’t take great pleasure in bashing his former team. But, aside from the Subway thing, Strahan is paid to analyze the game. Sometimes you have to be objective about your friends. And if you think they should be ashamed, then, you say it.

Of course, your friends are going to be pissed, but hey, a man needs to make a living. A man, after all, can’t live on Subway alone.

Tuck upset about Strahan's rippage

Strahan commented on Fox pre-game today that he stands by his comments.  Heck why shouldn't he?  Giants absolutely blew the big one last week.  Someone here said it was an 'EPIC' collapse.  Heck- that was an understatement.  Tuck needs to shut his mouth and the entire team needs to focus and stop worrying about what people are saying.

If they don't, if they didn't like what Strahan was saying- they sure as heck aren't going to like what us Giants fans have to say after another loss.
As far as I'm concerned- anything short of a decent playoff advancement at this point is unacceptable.  I'm so fed up with the Giants lack of passion and mistakes (especially the lack of tackling) that I don't care how many injuries they have.  They need to produce some wins to make a decent season.  That's my opinion anyway.

being on the bad side of that experience before I'm sure has something to do with Strahan's comments..... no doubt he remembers how it felt losing that type of game.

Strahan does not seem to remember the 2002 Wildcard Game vs the 49ers where they had I believe a 20 some odd point lead in the 3rd quarter and completely collapsed. That spelled the end of Jim Fassell.

Another dumb article. When will this stuff end? Is there nothing better to talk about? Isn't there some charity work to cover? It's Xmas for Pete's sake!

Tuck should be upset. The Giant non-defense gave up 35 points in the 2nd half. You have to work at being that bad. No one slipped them a date rape drug. Perhaps Tuck should play in the NBA, THERE it's only 48 minutes to play. G-men - what's the "G" stand for again?  Garbage? Well, they are at the meadow-lands.  They certainly looked like garbage men last week.  The Cowboys also cleaned their clock a few weeks ago at home. I'd heard talk of the Giants in the Super Bowl this year, that was weeks ago. They resemble the 2-6 2009 seasons last 1/2 of the schedule. If Rodgers is 1/2 conscious the Pack will win. Bye Bye Coughlin, play card with Wade Phillips.

This has to be the most idiotic statement I've seen in years.

Note also that when, at halftime, Strahan said, "If Philly comes back..." he barely got to finish his sentence because Bradshaw and company were laughing, hooting, and making fun of him.  Strahan had the last laugh.
