Justin Tuck: Cowboys O-line is confused

IRVING, Texas -- In a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was asked about the differences between this year's Cowboys offensive line and last year's.

What Tuck said was to the point.

"Just a little bit more confusion. It seems like sometimes they're not on the same page," Tuck said. "When they are [on the same page], I've seen them move great. I don't know what the case is as far as commuication is. That's the only thing I've seen differently."

Tuck has had some battles with the Cowboys offensive line in the past, most notably with former left tackle Flozell Adams, who kicked Tuck in the knee in the Cowboys home opener last year, causing an injury.

Adams is playing for Pittsburgh this season and Tuck wishes he could see him on Sunday.

"I wish I could play against Flo to be honest with you," Tuck said.

When asked why, Tuck said, "I'll keep it to myself."

Tuck did praise the work of left tackle Doug Free, who Tuck won't face too much on Sunday. He said it's hard to find bright spots in a 1-7 team but felt Free was doing a good job.

The Cowboys offensive line has had problems this season with starters Marc Colombo and Kyle Kosier missing action due to injuries. Leonard Davis was benched and backup guard Montrae Holland also suffered an injury.
