Justin Tuck Likes Giants Chances This Year, Is Not As Nice As Prince Amukamara

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck recently sat down for an interview with Stephen A. Smith on ESPN Radio New York 98.7's Michael Kay Show and discussed a varying degree of topics, including this year's Giants team and the ice tub incident with Prince Amukamara.

With many media outlets focused on the New York Jets, many have noted that the reigning Super Bowl champion Giants have gone under the radar. Be that as it may, Tuck believes this team is capable of doing something special as long as they avoid the injury bug.

Via Sports Radio Interviews:

"The biggest thing for us is staying healthy. We got a lot of talent. We got an elite quarterback. We got an up and coming defense with a lot of hungry individuals who are ready to continue making names for themselves. I like where we are at."

In addition, Tuck cleared the air with the Amukamara incident and stated that he viewed it as a right of passage as well as a sign that the team sees the 2011 first round pick as a key member of the group. However, he said he might not have taken it as well as the 23-year-old cornerback did.

"I'm a different cat. I'm not as nice as Prince is, but I'm a different cat."
