Afternoon Practice, DE Justin Tuck

Q:  ………practice.

A: That is not surprising. You know how New York fans are. They probably have been champing at the bit to see some football action. So we are excited about it. We have the best fans in the world – no doubt about it. I saw a guy with a Philly jersey on and I thought there was going to be a little trouble. They kind of exiled him. I thought he was going to get roughed up a little bit. But it is great to be out here with our fans. We know that our fans love us and we love them, too.

Q:  Is there any way, even in late June, you can tell something about the way the field will play or the wind conditions – about what it is going to be like?

A: You can tell. Sometimes when you look up at the goal post and one goal post is blowing in and the other one was blowing in, too. So the wind is going to play a factor. But we like that. We will be used to it by the time we play in here, so opposing teams are going to have something to deal with – especially come late fall.

Q:  How do you feel about this place – just kind of getting your bearings down?

A: It is a different. This is a new field. So it has not been broken in yet. It is still kind of soft. So you have to wear the right cleats out here right now. But as we get out here on it more and get more comfortable in here, I'm sure it is just going to be just like we are making old memories like we did in old Giants Stadium.

Q:  The fans are out here just kind of hootin' and 'hollering.  Training camp is not here yet, ……this team and the enthusiasm of the fans seems to be as good as ever.

A:  I think it is going to be an exciting team.  Coming off of last year and having the disappointment that we had last year – we are definitely champing at the bit to get out here and play good football.  And we didn't do that all year last year.  And we are used to playing good football.  So that is what we want to get back to and that is what we are working for.

Q:  It is a bit of a double edged sword.  The fans are very close to the bench.  When things are good, that can be good.  But that can also be bad.

A:  We have ways of taking care of …………..  But that I don't worry about.  The only thing I can do to control that is by playing good.
