The Wisdom (or not) of Justin Tuck

Smart man that Justin Tuck. Or not.

In today's New York Daily News Mr. Tuck is quoted as saying the following: "The Eagles were our No. 1 threat to begin with." I couldn't agree with the man more.

It's a two team race in the NFC East this season. These words may come back to bite me, but as an Eagles' fan I am not worried about the G-Men or 'Skins this season.

Tucks also goes on to say that if McNabb were to line-up as a TE when Vick is in the game that he would of course take his shot at #5. Fair is fair and football is a contact sport. Can't argue with Tuck on this point.

Where I continue my disagreement is when Tuck says that the Giants will have figured out the "Vick packages" by the time the 2 teams meet on November 1.

To that I say good luck. Aren't the G-Men responsible for the saying "22 eyes on #36?" Vick can be just as dangerous as #36 in open space. And despite a game plan of 22 eyes on B-West I remember B-West leaving Pierce in a cloud of dust.

So many offensive weapons I am drooling over here. I can't wait until that November 1 match-up!

If we play them in week 8 and Vick is currently suspended until week 6 does Tuck expect to be up to speed with the packages after 1 full game? Will they use pre-season footage to game plan? They won't be ready, no one will.
