Giant fans have been asking all year: who is that out there wearing No. 91? It used to be Justin Tuck, but that guy wearing his shirt is no Justin Tuck.
Well, as it turns out, after a slew of on and off-field issues, Tuck is rounding into back into form. Injuries to his neck, groin and ankle held him back this year on the field. The passing of two close family members at the beginning of the season held him back off of it.
His season bottomed out several weeks ago, when he could not make much of a difference as his Giants began to spiral into their annual nosedive. He annouced to the world that he “sucked”. Last week, he picked himself up off the canvas and began to fight back. Justin Tuck has returned.
“I am starting to get a little healthier,” Tuck told reporters today. “I think the biggest thing for me was that I had a great friend call me and gave me some words of wisdom. It opened my eyes to how you have to play this game, regardless of if you are feeling great or feeling like...

DeMarcus Ware has a simple theory about Justin Tuck.
To the Dallas Cowboys’ pass-rusher, Tuck is nothing more than a desperate wannabe. And every time Tuck trashes the Cowboys, every time he talks about how much he “hates” Dallas and how he thinks Cowboys Stadium a dump, Ware feels a sense of ...
Justin Tuck took a moment in the Giants' locker room this week to glance at the ceiling. Was he asking for help from above? In a way, perhaps.
The hardest thing to figure out about the Giants' performance in Sunday's 38-35 loss to the Packers was why they performed so much better than they did against the Saints.
It's something that's been troubling Justin Tuck. He spent a little time sharing his disbelief about the inconsistency of the Giants' play with Jeff Roberts of the Bergen Record.
The Giants are in the midst of what could be an "historical" collapse, to borrow a word used by Justin Tuck. They've lost four straight games to turn a 6-2 start into a 6-6 record and they've fallen into second place in the NFC East. Now, on Sunday night in Dallas, they need to stop their ...
Trash talk between the Cowboys and Giants is certainly not a new phenomenon. There is no love lost between the two teams, who always seem to put on a show when they get together during the season. One player who is particularly vocal about his hatred for the Cowboys is Justin Tuck. He has been [...]

Ware, who is the NFL’s sack leader with...
Dallas is first on Justin Tuck’s list, ahead of the Eagles and the Redskins. There’s no team he hates more than America’s Team. And now the Giants must beat the Cowboys to make something special of their season.
Frank GrayBGB EditorThe New York Giants (6-6) enter this weekend with confidence. After taking the defending Super Bowl champions to the brink of their first loss and nearly pulling it out (had the refs not put in the fix), the Giants take their intensity to Texas to face off with the Dallas Cowboys (7-5). This week is a must win scenario for the Giants, but as our own Jim Mancari...
Justin Tuck talks a lot about how he “hates” the Cowboys and that their stadium is a dump. Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware has a theory about this. “He says that because maybe he wants to play here,” Ware said via the New York Daily News. “Everybody wants to play for the Cowboys. If I wasn’t…
