Fans of the New York Giants weren't the only ones surprised when they learned the news of tight ends coach Mike Pope being let ago by the team, as many current and formers players found themselves in disbelief as well. In a display that really epitomizes the respect Pope commands around the league, current and former players alike took to Twitter to share in their surprise and appreciate of both a great coach and a great man.
