Justin Tuck on challenges of new rules, Brady’s toughness, RGIII’s issues
New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck joined the show to talk about challenges facing pass-rushers in today’s game and more.
Tuck talked about the challenge of sacking the quarterback and not getting a personal foul. “You do think about it,” Tuck said. “Am I hitting this guy in a place that’s not going to cost me a lot of money?” Tuck said it show the NFL thinks that pass-rushers have a lot of athleticism to be able to control where they hit the QB.
Dan asked the toughest quarterback he’s played against. “I would probably have to say [Tom] Brady,” Tuck said. “I have a true respect for him, because I’ve played against him in those situations.”
Tuck commented on Robert Griffin III and how he’s different. “You can just tell he’s not the RG who took the League by storm last year,” Tuck said.
But Tuck said he’d rather face a pocket passer. “I think I would rather play a stationary quarterback then guys who run 4.3s or 4.4s.”
