New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck says despite the team’s back-to-back losses they are not because of a lack of confidence (Credit: AP Photo) The New York Giants did not lose on Sunday, but then again they did not actually play on Sunday. The team had their bye week this week and got back to practice on Monday. After losing back-to-back games, the Giants are starting to face questions about what may be wrong with the team. Despite two straight losses, defensive end Justin Tuck does not think the team lost due to a lack of confidence. “No. Not confidence. Maybe a little focus. We lost a little focus. I think everybody on this team feels that we can be the best team in the league when we’re playing our style of football. It’s just unfortunate that we haven’t played our style of football the last couple of weeks and we have to find a way to get back to playing that because it’s going to be needed leading up into these next few weeks,” Tuck said, via the team’s website. “But confidence? No. I think we always have been very confident. Sometimes maybe too confident, borderline cocky a little bit. But our confidence will never be a… I don’t think it will ever waver on this team.” It is always nice to hear team’s talk about being confident, but if the Giants do not fix their problems, they could be on the outside looking in when the playoffs come around.
