New York Giants News And Notes: David Baas' Season In Jeopardy?

Good morning, New York Giants fans. If you are tired of reading injury news about the Giants, I have bad news for you. We begin today discussing the mysterious headaches, neck issues that have been plaguing Giants center David Baas.

"All that I really have to say is that I have had neck issues. I have been dealing with it pretty much all season. These issues have stemmed into migraine issues and now we are getting a lot of tests done, some evaluations and we will let the medical staff handle all of that and make the right decision," Baas said. "I really want to play football but my health is very important to me. They will make the best decision."

Could that decision be that Baas' first season with the Giants is over? He did not want to speculate

"I am not thinking about that at all. What I am thinking about is this week and I am going to do everything that they want me to do as far as tests and getting stuff checked out and looked at.," Baas said. "I just have to deal with it. We have to deal with it and we have to do what is right for this team and the medical staff is going to make that decision and make the right one."

During Eli Manning's meeting with reporters Wednesday a reporter made the observation that the Giants don't seem to have the mindset of a team on a four-game losing streak.

"This is exciting. When you're getting into December and you're playing for playoffs and division leads and different things, this is what it's all about. This is a fun time. I think it's important that the guys look at it like that. It's not something to get nervous about or get anxious. It's something to look forward to," Manning said. "The mindset is looking ahead. It doesn't matter what you've done last week or what your record is. It's what you're playing for, who you have this week. And you have Dallas, Sunday Night Football, that's a big one. I think everybody is excited about the opportunity."

Giants' guard Chris Snee said the team has to approach their remaining games as though they are playoff games.

"Our playoffs start now. That's how you have to look at it. We know what's at stake. Everyone is aware of what's going on and the circumstance we put ourselves in by not being able to win some of these games, but heads are up," Snee said. "We're not down by any means. We know that we're still in it. If we take care of our own business, hopefully we'll be playing in January."

Ware thinks Tuck is Cowboy wannabe | New York Daily News
DeMarcus Ware has a simple theory about Justin Tuck.

To the Dallas Cowboys’ pass-rusher, Tuck is nothing more than a desperate wannabe. And every time Tuck trashes the Cowboys, every time he talks about how much he "hates" Dallas and how he thinks Cowboys Stadium a dump, Ware feels a sense of pity for the struggling Giants defensive lineman.

"He says that because maybe he wants to play here," Ware told reporters in Irving, Tex., on Wednesday. "Everybody wants to play for the Cowboys. If I wasn’t playing for the Cowboys I would call it that too, because I want to play for them."
