Justin Tuck is a voice of reason during which Giants fans who rejoiced him in the two Super Bowl championships were emotionally devastated after Odell Beckham Jr's trade-of-the-sports-and-entertainment world trade . Browns. Once a captain of the Giants, always a captain of the Giants.
"Give it time," Tuck's message to Giants fans. "I'll be angry at her decision if it's been over two years now. Why jump here today?"
In the meantime, she will support the general overseer Dave Gettleman.
"I think Gettleman does what he likes most in the franchise for a long time, and I do not think anyone can ask," Tuck told The Post. "Everyone gets emotional about these things, but I think all players understand that this is a business, and we have to approach it as a business, and things like this are unfortunately .
"Long story is short, I think Odell needs a new change of view as well as this group that needs to move and try to get what they got for him.
"And I also think Gettleman looking at it from a team perspective has had many holes that he needs to find a way to fill, and they are still in a rebuilding. [1
"We get the chance to go back to the drawing board, which I think is copper – what the Giants want to do."
Meanwhile, he trusted John Mara.
"I guarantee you will ask Mr. Mara if he wants Odell Beckham as a Giant For Life, you think yes," Tuck said. "I'll be pretty sure that's it, but at the end of the day what's the decision made off? What's best for the team for a long haul, do you think he's not thinking about long delivery? This is what his family's heritage built. I know a fact he thought was long and hard before he could get the trigger on it. "
Tuck, introducing a comedic talent as a celebrity performer in the Garden of Laughs fundraiser on April 2 at the Garden, he said Eli's Manning did not have to be a Mann at sea at the sinking of the Big Blue ship.
"Unfortunately for us, we are in trouble where you have this face of the franchise in her final legs when it comes to her career," Tuck said. "Depending on what we're doing O-line wisely, maybe he's called it two years.
" I expect them to draft a quarterback this year. In that case, why not have a man like Eli Manning there to teach him the ropes? If I'm Gettleman, If I'm Mr. Mara and the Giants brass, I like the quarterback to learn under Eli Manning. If I am GM, I'm sure there will be a quarterback if there's someone there they want. "
One thinks the last thing he wants to see is Manning trotted out as a 38-year-old sheep sacrifice. " I do not know about it, "Tuck said." If you're looking the games last year were protected by Eli, he was a fairly decent quarterback. "
Except now he will not have a target Beckham.
" OK, I get it, "Tuck said. Odell Beckham is one of the major talents in this league. I think he went to the Hall of Fame. I want to say that they have felt that to get back to being a Super Bowl-caliber team, they have to change. I will give a superstar player any day to get four or five very very solid pieces. "
Tuck added:" Do we have a superstar broad receiver at & # 39; 07 & & # 39; 11? I do not remember the one. I remember that we have a very good group of guys playing together, and a team playing together, that's what I remember. And I think that's what the Giants are trying to get back to. That's where I'm perfectly fine. "
But Beckham's trade less than a year after signing him into a $ 90 million contract?
" I know people who got divorced for six months in love, others
"I'm a fan of opinion," Tuck said. "I see that we need a pass rusher "
Pat Shurmur needed a team leader to move forward.
" You can have all the players in the world, if you have no leadership, you're short of yourself, "Tuck said. That's what's missing right now. And that's not a shot to anyone in the team today. It is a commandment for people to grow up. We need a bonafide leader in that locker room. There is open job to be a leader. "
Landon Collins could have filled Tuck-Antrel Rolle's role, but Gettleman gave him a contract of $ 84 million in Redskins.
" If I get the feeling from here, I'm trying to do it, because it's expensive I'm Landon, I love how he plays, I want to play with him, he reminds me of an Antrel boy, "Tuck said.
" But again, I see both sides, that my fandom does not allow for a man like Landon Collins to get on the road, right? Perhaps why I will not do a good GM. He did everything you thought you wanted from a Giants uniform. "
Tuck, who is the VP of private wealth management for Goldman Sachs, declares Beckham and Collins's loss of a bitter tablet to swallow him.
" The silver is swallowed. You can not carry Landon or Odell back to this point, you can also swallow the pill. I'm waiting to see if the pills help me or not, "he says.
He encourages Giants fans to continue.
" I will say that the years are very good to New York's general fans Giant, "Tuck said." It's clear that we've been in a few years now, but I think you see a group of men led by Mr. They are trying to figure it out.
"What's your choice? You can be a fan, or you can give it time."
