Thursday Morning Beastlines

Let's take a quick tour around the most fascinating division in the NFL this morning:


  • New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck had some kind words for Dez Bryant: "He's just one of those players that every time he touches the ball, you have to have an account of where he is in every situation -- special teams, as a wide receiver, even when he's running a reverse. He's one those players that can beat you. They're going to do their best to get him the ball, but however they do it, he becomes the most dangerous person on the field when he has the football. But we knew that, we understand that he's a great talent."


  • As the Daily News' talented NFL man Paul Domowitch knows, it never hurts to lead with a Rodgers and Hammerstein reference. For the under-40 crowd, go rent "Oklahoma!" and try to figure out what the hell's going on during that dream sequence.
