The New York Giants are 2-2 going into week five of the NFL regular season, but given the fan reaction, media coverage and player statements you'd think they were about to be contracted. That negativity continued on Thursday as another eight players missed practice, while the defensive line was uncharacteristically open about their current predicament.
"I'm not having that fun I'm used to," Jason Pierre-Paul said. "I don't have that energy like I had last year. And that goes for the other guys, too. You can see it in their eyes that they're not having fun with the game. They got to find [themselves] and I got to find myself so I'm just looking to find myself."
Defensive captain and fellow defensive end Justin Tuck echoed his teammate's statements about not having fun, but took it a step further. As he did a year ago, Tuck criticized his own play … bluntly. And for the second time in as many seasons, the veteran says he "sucks."
"Let me just say this, I’m not having that much fun, either. When I find out the cause of why I’m not having as much fun, I’ll let you know," Tuck said. "I suck. That’s what I’m going to go back to. Yeah, I suck."
The Giants will look to return to fun, less suckier times this Sunday when they take on the Cleveland Browns.
