New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara recently got engaged to his long-time girlfriend and during an interview with Muscle and Fitness, he admitted that he doesn’t drink alcohol and has never slept with his fiance. In fact he’s a virgin. His teammates refer to him as the “black Tim Tebow.”
I grew up Catholic, so it just started out as one of those things. I’d think, “If I do this, maybe I can get to heaven,” so I said no drinks, no sex, all the big things. As I grew up, I realized that’s not what it’s about. It’s about having a relationship with Jesus. It’s not about “Don’t do this. Don’t do that.” But still, it’s just one of those things I haven’t done, and I don’t see any benefit to doing it. You’re always reading about people getting DUIs. So many bad things that happen and wind up in the paper are alcohol-related, so by not drinking, it saves me, my team, and my family a lot of trouble.
You said one of your nicknames is “the black Tim Tebow.”

Many NFL players wouldn’t want to be compared to Tim Tebow, but in Prince Amukamara‘s case, the comparison makes some sense.
Amukamara plays on the opposite side of the ball from Tebow, but they have more in common than you might imagine — like the fact that they are both virgins. Amukamara recently did and interview with Muscle and Fitness Magazine and the Giants cornerback...
Defensive end Justin Tuck could care less if the New York Giants started 0-2 in 2007, and then went on to beat the undefeated New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl. “I don’t want to hear it,” the Giants’
The New York Giants have always built there defense around the pass rush. They rely on the ability to rush the quarterback to help their defense stop the pass. So far through two games the pass rush has not been a factor for the Giants. This is their biggest problem on the defensive side of the ball. Who can fix this problem for the Giants? The answer is Jason Pierre-Paul.

Eli Manning didn't come out and say the New York Giants are facing a must-win game heading into the third week.
The two-time Super Bowl MVP came close though, and he wasn't the only Giant expressing concern after an 0-2 start.
Outspoken safety Antrel Rolle has seen an inexplicable lack of excitement on the bench in losses to Dallas and Denver, and it concerns him.
Conspicuously absent over the first two games of the season is New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. His stat line may read six tackles in two games, but he's been anything but impactful for Big Blue. If anything, it looks like he still has a lot of rust to shake off after missing the offseason due to back surgery.
But that didn't stop JPP from speaking up after...

With their backs against the wall, the Big Blue isn't panicking or doubting themselves, but coming together as a team.
The New York Giants endured pathetic loss to the Denver Broncos 41-23, falling to 0-2 to start their 2013 campaign. Big Blue's Mathias Kiwanuka tried to put his finger on exactly what's keeping Big Blue from finishing on the winning side.
