These days everyone wants to be a dynasty. Are the Giants there?

"Not just yet," co-owner and executive vice president Steve Tisch said today. "I hope that at a certain point towards the end of this season, hopefully going into the playoffs, that that word will be used. I’m not going to use it, but it’s a nice word, and if others sort of feel we could be a dynasty, or are becoming one, I’d be thrilled. But I’m not going to say we’re a dynasty. We’re a great football team, we’re defending a world championship, and for me that’s very, very exciting."

Tisch, by the way, has a new movie coming out. He's a producer for "Hope Floats" with Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, Steve Carell. He said many of his movie-making friends have enjoyed the Giants' recent success.

"They love it," he said. "There’s a huge following of the Giants in Hollywood. Got a lot of fans out there."

We noted earlier how Tisch was reveling in the quiet of the Giants' training camp compared to the Grucci production over in Cortland.

"I think it says a lot about how Jerry goes with the team," he said. "With Tom, and the other coaches. It says a lot about the players too. I mean the players don’t want the distractions. They want to come here and start training camp, go into the preseason and start playing football in the regular season. So with no distractions, or a minimal amount of distractions, it’s fantastic. It just brings them closer and closer, starting yesterday, and starting today."
