I just spoke with Giants defensive end Justin Tuck, and he's not taking the bait on the trash talk coming from the Cleveland Browns' locker room. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that a Browns defensive player said that 270-pound running back Brandon Jacobs will start "tip-toeing" if he gets hit in the mouth. Folks, this is one of the most confident 1-3 teams I've encountered. Here's what Tuck had to say:
"Honestly, we don't pay attention to that crap," he said. "We've got a huge running back and a great offensive line that is helping us lead the country in rushing. I don't fault the guy for saying something, because he's probably trying to rile up his teammates. But we don't pay any mind to that stuff."
My column on the Giants will appear on the blog at some point Sunday. Until then, have a wonderful weekend.
