New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck told ESPNNewYork.com that the defense this season has to rely less on their offense. “I hope this defense can carry the team,” Tuck said. “Every time we go out on the field this year, we can’t think that [the offense will carry the team].” “We have to think like we are going to carry this team,” Tuck added. Tuck says they need to help their offense, not hurt them. “That might be something we lack because our offense is so good, thinking to ourselves that we can kind of give up this and that,” Tuck said. “[We have] to kind of get away from that and approach the game in a way that those ’80’s teams did with [Lawrence Taylor] and all those guys. “They went out into a game trying to kill an offense and not give them anything,” Tuck continued. “We have to get back to that on defense. I don’t care if our offense puts up 40 points a game. We have to put up six.” I think Tuck hit the nail right on the head.  The Giants defense didn’t hold
