Good morning, New York Giants' fans. Let's get your day started with your morning does of Giants' news.

Justin Tuck talked Thursday about what it's like to play against the Washington offense.

"You definitely have to play with a lot of passion and a lot of speed and a lot of energy against a team like this because everything they do is fast and you've got to make a decision on has he handed a ball off? Is it a keep? Is it a run? Is it a pass and all of that is a split second decision. If you make the wrong decision, it's a big play. If you make a right decision, you have a chance to stop them."

It might not be as catchy as RG3, but Jerrel Jernigan has earned himself a nickname for his scout team work impersonating Washington's rookie quarterback: JJ1.

"That almost sounds like he should have been in Star Wars or something," Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said.

Tuck praised Jernigan, as well as backup quarterback David Carr for their roles on the scout team pretending to be Robert Griffin III. The pair has to study the quarterback's tendencies, and play as RG3 would to give the defense a look at what they might see Monday night.
