Justin Tuck is your Big Blue View New York Giants Player of the Year. Voting closed today, and Tuck received 744 of the 2,588 votes cast (28 percent). He edges out Rich Seubert (685 votes, 26 percent) and Osi Umenyiora (619 votes, 23 percent).

The defensive end had a terrific season in making the Pro Bowl for the second time in his six-year career. Tuck tied with Umenyiora for the team-lead with 11.5 sacks, which is just a half-sack off his career high. It was the third time in his career he has reached double figures. Tuck also finished third on the team in tackles, registering a career-high 76.

Truth be told, I was rooting for Seubert to win this vote. The veteran lineman had a terrific bounce-back center after seemingly being near the end of the line following a dismal 2009 season. The work he did at center after injuries to Shaun O'Hara and Adam Koets was critical to the Giants' offense. Let's hope Seubert is able to come back from his latest injury, the dislocated kneecap he suffered in the season's final game.

Umenyiora was also deserving of the support he received, having had an excellent season with 11.5 sacks and an NFL record 10 forced fumbles. He re-asserted his place amongst the league's most dangerous pass-rushing defensive ends.

I will be working with the Giants PR department to see if we can line up an interview with Justin. Maybe I will even ask him if he would come by and do a live chat with us.
