Rich Seubert has only been away from the Giants and he's already an honorary captain. He and Mark Bavaro and Michael Strahan will represent the Giants on teh field for Sunday's coin toss.

Eli Manning said he is "excited to see Richie out on the field again with us.”

He had some nice things to say about Seubert, but also threw out a zinger.

“He was a great teammate," Manning said. "A guy when I first came in my rookie year he was around, he was injured, I thought he was 35 years old when I first got here. I thought he was a guy who had been here forever. He had only been here for a couple of years. An honor to have played with him – he was a great leader, great teammate, great guy to have in the locker room – excited that he’ll be a part of the game on Sunday.”

Tom Coughlin also recalled Seubert fondly.

"He was feisty,” Coughlin said. “He loves to play, he loves to be a part of this team and the New York Giants. He plays with every ounce of fiber that he has. He gives it all and shares it all. He is not afraid to get on teammates and he is not afraid to be the rambunctious one in the locker room. He stirs it up better than anyone I have been around. Sometimes it is to the point where you have to step in between. We love this guy and we miss him."
