12:46 PM ET 11.02 | Justin Tuck got a head start on the war or words between the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday. The Giants defensive end criticized the play of Pittsburgh's offensive line, claiming that they "get away with murder" when it comes to protecting Ben Roethlisberger. Tuck told ESPN that he hoped the official take notice in the Giants' Week 9 game against the visiting Steelers. "They've done a very good job protecting Ben, they don't hold on every play. But we've seen a whole lot of it."

It seemed to work really well against SF--Giants complained about SF O lineman, Harbaugh over-reacted, SF showed up not ready to play. Somehow I don't think it will works so well with Pittsburgh, though.

Every player in their declining years complains of being held.

If only he ran after quarterbacks like he runs his mouth...

Does Tuck think he plays for the Jets now? Because all he does is talk lately...

Whatever. From 2007-2011, James Harrison was held on 75% of the plays he rushed the passer with hardly a flag thrown. The refs don't care Tuck.

It's only superstition if it doesn't work. Like not changing your socks while you're on a winning streak.

sounds like a built in pregame excuse,in case they lose.the refs should keep a eye on your o line when james harrison comes for eli,hes the most held man in the league,only james doesnt cry and whine
