So there was plenty to write about yesterday. One of the topics that made it into the paper but we did not blog about was Justin Tuck, who came up with a working nickname for the Giants’ defensive front line:

The Four Nobodies.

It’s an attempt to humble the group, which Tuck feels must play as one if they hope to reverse the direction that the last half of the 2009 season was taking the them.

Tuck also spoke about facing nemesis Flozell Adams on Saturday night.

“We didn’t say two words to each other,” he said. “After the first couple of plays you tend to forget about it. Well I did. Business as usual.”

When Adams was released by the Cowboys, Tuck probably thought he was through with having to face him. But of course it turned out that they were lined up across from one another on Saturday night.

“I hope we get to play him again,” Tuck said.

For that to happen, of course, the Giants and Steelers would have to meet in the Super Bowl.

Here are the links to the other stories in the paper, including an article on Shawn Andrews written by former @newsdaygiants Arthur Staple:
