08:04 AM ET 01.03 | Justin Tuck is at it again. [Tuck] may not hate the Atlanta Falcons the way he hates the Dallas Cowboys, but he already has a strong dislike for their offensive line. Tuck fired the first shot of wild-card week on Monday when he called the Falcons' linemen "dirtbags" and acknowledged their well-earned reputation for dirty play. Twice this season opponents have ripped into the Atlanta line for "cheap" and dangerous tactics. And Tuck said the Giants' defensive linemen will be watching out for that during their playoff game at the Meadowlands on Sunday afternoon. "Yeah we've seen it. We know they have that quote-unquote 'reputation,'" Tuck told reporters.

They can defend a one-dimensional team very well (cowboys = no running game) but the Birds can get it done on the ground and in the air.

Why do the Giants have to have so many idiots on their team? Maybe it starts with the drooling waterhead they have at QB and trickles down from there.

You may be on to something there Rex.

I'm not a Giants fan by any means but you sound like a hater. That drooling waterhead at QB was 67 passing yards shy of 5000 and despite their horrible running game and suspect defense, they're still in the playoffs. He's been playing like an ELIte QB this year so I'll cut him some slack.
