After seeing the Giants lose to the lowly Seahawks on Sunday, it was evident that they could have used the services of Justin Tuck and Brandon Jacobs. Ahmad Bradshaw was unable to get anything significant going on the ground and Marshawn Lynch ran all over the New York defense. While you would think the Giants would be able to pull off a win without two of their better players against a team like Seattle, that was not the case.
Former Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce agrees that the Giants could have used Jacobs and Tuck on Sunday. In fact, he implied the two were milking their injuries and should have been on the field.
“To me, if you don’t have an injury that needs surgery, or that’s severe, you need to be out there,” Pierce said on ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning show. “If you are one of the leaders on the team, which Brandon Jacobs and Justin Tuck are, and you say, ‘You know what, the Seattle Seahawks, maybe we don’t need to play this game,’ and you miss out, that is going to come back to bite you in the tail. You’ve got to play every one. Every one is important.”
