Antonio Pierce Calls out Tuck and Jacobs

Upstate_Giants_fan : 10/10/2011 8:54 am
on Mike & Mike. Said as team leaders they should be out on the field unless they need surgery.
So he never missed a game?
joepa : 10/10/2011 8:55 am : link
leaders also don't go out "Clubbing" the night before a game, where the best receiver on the team ruins their season
dorgan : 10/10/2011 8:56 am : link
like a lot of guys who retire. Their memories are selective and they become tougher and better players in their own minds.

Danny Kanell : 10/10/2011 8:57 am : link
What a dumb thing to say.

That's just a stupid statement.  
kmed : 10/10/2011 8:57 am : link
If it was late in the season and it was a must-win to make the playoffs, maybe, but that's just stupid to say without knowing whats going on.
They have to talk because thats what they're paid to do...  
okiegiant : 10/10/2011 8:59 am : link
so they just throw it out there without thinking(or realizing how stupid it sounds).

The problem is a lot of casual fans(or ESPN watching morons)will lap this kind of crap up.
That is absolutely insane.  
USMC_0121 : 10/10/2011 9:00 am : link
If they did play then they would need surgery after fucking themselves up even more.
Danny Kanell : 10/10/2011 9:01 am : link
That being said, I really hope Tuck can play through this. We need him really bad. Does he risk worse injury by playing or is it just a pain issue?
And of course Jacobs with a swollen knee...  
okiegiant : 10/10/2011 9:02 am : link
and sprained MCL would just be tearing up a defense right now.

And a one legged Tuck with tingling hands would certainly help(assuming he wasn't lost for the entire year just getting out on the field).

Lord, sometimes the talking heads make my butt itch.
Danny Kanell : 10/10/2011 9:02 am : link
Oh and DJ Ware is absolutely awful. He really doesnt have one good attribute. Hes literally just a guy.
C'mon AP  
TheMick7 : 10/10/2011 9:04 am : link
Both these guys were the 2 toughest guys on the team when you played. If they could be out there you know they would! They still bleed blue perhaps you forgot that color now that $$$ green pays the bills.
If he wants to call out the team...  
Russel in VA : 10/10/2011 9:05 am : link
for a lack of veteran leadership he may have more insight than the typical outside observer. As for playing through a stinger and an MCL injury, come on. If it's Becky unable to identify his injury and just saying he doesn't feel right sure, but these are verifiable, painful injuries from players we need for the next 11 games, not just this one.
Is he serious?  
teso56 : 10/10/2011 9:10 am : link
How much slower would Jacobs be tip toeing in the backfield than he is already with a sprained knee?
Guys I think he meant  
Thunder27Lightning44 : 10/10/2011 9:13 am : link
(or at least I hope so)that they should have been out on the sidelines pumping up the players and providing a spark. I didn't get to watch the game so idk if they were on the field or not.
They were on the sidelines...  
okiegiant : 10/10/2011 9:16 am : link
and both were being supportive.
kmed : 10/10/2011 9:18 am : link
Ware barely got a shot yesterday, that's a bit unfair. He had 4 rushes yesterday and on two of them he was hit exactly when he got the ball.
They showed Tuck on the sidelines getting pumped  
kmed : 10/10/2011 9:19 am : link
up at least 3 or 4 times. They showed Jacobs early on after a TD and he was fired up.
bxgiants4 : 10/10/2011 9:20 am : link
is one of my all time favorite Giants but his comment is dumb

Oh my bad  
Thunder27Lightning44 : 10/10/2011 9:20 am : link
Then that is really stupid of Pierce to say. I would have thought that they would have been out on the sidelines...just wanted to make sure.
Danny Kanell : 10/10/2011 9:23 am : link
kmed, hes had a decent enough amount of carries in his career and yesterday was just a continuation of the same. He is terrible. Hes doesnt make people miss, he isnt really fast, hes just a guy that runs into the pile. And Im not blaming him for the safety. Lets be honest, he sucks.
The feeling among most (especially on BBI)..  
BigBlueinChicago : 10/10/2011 9:24 am : link
was that the Giants could afford to hold them out because they just playing Seattle. The suggestion being that if the game "meant more", they would be out there. Hell, the way it was going, people here thought the Giants could field 1/2 a team and they would win yesterday no matter what.

That is what I think Pierce is talking about.
Maybe, but yesterday  
kmed : 10/10/2011 9:26 am : link
had nothing to do with, IMO. 2 of his 4 runs were stuffed as soon as he got the ball. AB didn't have success either.
Didn't Pierce miss a chumk of time  
Rob in NYC : 10/10/2011 9:29 am : link
his first seasom ('05) including the Carolina playoff game where we had dorgan starting at LB? Did he go under the knife for that?
Yup... Pierce had a high ankle sprain...  
Matt G : 10/10/2011 9:53 am : link
Pierce sustained a high ankle sprain, also known as a syndesmosis sprain, during Week 14. The syndesmosis sprain represents an injury to the inferior tibiofibular ligament (the ligament at the bottom of the lower leg connecting the two leg bones, the tibia and fibula). The joint between the two lower leg bones (tibiofibular) forms the roof of the ankle joint (mortise). With a high ankle sprain this joint can separate, thus potentially leading to ankle instability. If there is enough stress across the mortise at the time of the sprain, that stress can travel up the outer leg bone (fibula) causing a fracture. In an effort to minimize separation of the tibiofibular joint, the athlete will be restricted in weight-bearing activities. In some cases, the athlete will be casted to limit weight bearing and help maintain the ankle in a position that will promote healing. The first phase is to allow the ligament to heal. The second phase is to promote normal range of motion at the joint, once there are no longer concerns about the ligament overstretching. Lastly, in order to return to play, strength, balance and proprioception (spatial awareness) need to be near normal so that running, cutting and yes, hitting, can occur without risking re-injury.
AP falling into the trap...  
BillKo : 10/10/2011 10:06 am : link
of having to say something to get attention.....

Not a good job on his part.
Just throwing this out there  
Sonic Youth : 10/10/2011 10:10 am : link
But AP has said a lot more stupid shit after he retired about current Giants than Tiki did.
What a stupid thing to say  
Ten Ton Hammer : 10/10/2011 10:16 am : link
Could've used you in that postseason game we got housed in, AP. Where were you? You had weeks off before that game.
thank god  
PaulBlakeTSU : 10/10/2011 10:33 am : link
he didn't use the "c" word or he'd be the biggest persona non grata in Giants history.
Maybe Not!  
YATITLE : 10/10/2011 11:06 am : link
Captain's play they aren't cheerleaders..ask Harry Carson!!!!
He's bitter  
PeterS : 10/10/2011 11:15 am : link
and his involvement with the Burress situation lost all credibility with me, (not that he's worried about it).
Maybe if pierce could cover brian westbrook  
NYGBlue42 : 10/10/2011 11:23 am : link
we might have another championship when he played.
Bradshaw #44 : 10/10/2011 11:43 am : link
if he knew anything about leadership he would have told plax to keep the gun at home.

There is onething of watching game tape for hours and putting players in good position to make plays. There is also the ideal leadership values in a person / football player. Pierce has neither.
