"That’s a good thing and a bad thing because a lot of teams are going to use that to their advantage," Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said today. "But for the people who do that the right way, that can really help a guy because there are parts of the season when guys just can’t get out there and go. You get a couple of weeks off, they get healthy and they can go out there and go. I see the good in it and I also see the bad in it."

"I never really got an explanation of why," he said. "It’s just ‘The rules are the rules.’ I never got an explanation why one player got off and I didn’t. But at the end of the day it’s on me, and I’ve got to take responsibility for it."

Are the Giants hiding David Douglas? The undrafted receiver played well in training camp and in the preseason, but would sort of be redundant on a roster with Jerrel Jernigan (they both return kicks, punts and play slot receiver). Of course, the Giants would naturally want to keep Douglas around in case anything happened to Jernigan or Victor Cruz. That's why it was interesting that Douglas barely played in the final preseason game after returning three punts and a kickoff against the Chicago Bears in the third preseason game.

Giants great Taylor tackles off-field issues - NYPOST.com
Giants legend Lawrence Taylor continues to downplay the off-field issues that plagued him both during and after his career.

In an interview on Thursday, Taylor said he does not dwell on his 2010 arrest for soliciting an underage prostitute.

"It is what it is, I’m not going to keep going over that thing," Taylor said on ESPN’s SportsCenter. "Of course it has. There are less opportunities, but I can’t worry about that, I’m fortunate enough to have gotten some of the opportunities that I’ve had over the years. I’m not going to sit here and go on welfare, right now it’s all about living life and getting back into the swing of things."
