Tuck: Giants' Super Bowl win over Pats 'one of the best games ever'

February 1, 2012 | 12:59 pm


Defensive end Justin Tuck is among 15 players on the Giants' roster who were members of the team four years ago, when New York stunned New England in the Super Bowl.

"We consider that probably one of the best games ever played," Tuck said. "We were very fortunate to be a part of it. To win a Super Bowl in that fashion -- a lot of us were young in our careers .... "

"The last couple of years, we have just continued to grow and I think this year is evidence of that, considering some of the roller coasters we've been on this year. We always just believed in each other."

The Giants were 7-7 with two games remaining in this regular season, and they had to beat Dallas in a winner-take-all finale for the NFC East crown.

Asked if he brought his championship ring on this trip to show younger players, Tuck said: "It's funny. A lot of us don't wear our rings. I don't wear mine.

"I always say that I have nine other fingers that I'm trying to fill up."
