Land of the Giants: Tuck still ticked

Flozell Adams' wallet is $12,500 lighter, but Justin Tuck is still angry about the tripping penalty that left him with a partially torn labrum

"It makes me hate the Cowboys a little bit more. You can write that I did say hate. I stand by what I said right after the game that it was a bush league play. You move on, that’s my plan, to move on," Tuck said. "Normally, people go to the Pro Bowl for blocking people, not tripping people. So maybe he should keep his feet on the ground. We’re not going to get into a war of words here, we are going to let it be what it is, and I’ll see Flozell (Adams) when we play them again."

Tuck would like to get a piece of former Giants running back Derrick Ward this weekend. Tuck said Ward, now with Tampa Bay, "has been calling me and guys around here talking a little trash so I would love to be able to go out there and shut him up a little bit."

  • Ward may be talking trash privately, but he has played the model of humility in his public comments about the Giants.

"I learned to become a man with the Giants. When I got into the league, I didn’t have any direction when it came to the NFL. I was content to play special teams and really not playing because of Tiki (Barber) and then the injuries that I had. Playing with the Giants it taught me how to overcome adversity and to work as hard as I can to get to the point where I want to be in my career," Ward said. "That is what I did the past few years in New York. The Giants prepared me to become the player that I am today. I will always be in debt to the Giants when it comes to that factor."

  • The Bucs are 0-2, but Tom Coughlin doesn't want to hear talk about Tampa Bay being an easy victory for the Giants this weekend.

"They are aggressive. They run extremely well on the defensive side of the ball. They have good special teams, a Pro Bowl player, punt returner, kickoff returner in (Clifton) Smith. So they do have multiple weapons and they have played two games which were very tight," Coughlin said. "They are averaging 401 yards a game. And they are 0-2. So it doesn’t quite fit. It doesn’t quite jive together."

"I've come to realize that I didn't have the training camp that I would have liked to have had so sometimes you have those little tweaks and nicks here and there as a result of not having the work in training camp," he said. "I don’t think it's anything more than the body not being used to football movements."
