Eye On Sports with Eric Williams:
Justin Tuck was a third round draft pick in 2005.Look, it probably shouldn’t have taken this long, but maybe somebody should try and find out just who’s behind the Giants’ masterful drafting of the team’s highly successful defensive lineman. Osi Umenyiorya was a second round draft pick in 2003.I mean, really, Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka and Jason Pierre-Paul! Really? New York’s new-age ‘fearsome foursome’ sacked Tom Brady twice (both by Tuck), hit him on eight other occasions and forced him to throw early on several others.Oh yeah Eye On Sports readers, I wanna’ know who’s the mastermind behind the drafting of Tuck, a third round draft pick in 2005 and Umenyiora, a second round pick in 2003 – and I want to copy this guy’s method – like, immediately.

Quite famously, it was an officials technically correct application of NFL Rule 3, Section 22, Article 2, Note 2 – the “tuck rule” – that launched the New England Patriots’ dynasty back in 2002.
But a decade later, based on the events of the last two Super Bowls, perhaps it is time for the “tuck rule” to be amended.
