On paper, Sunday's game between the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks would appear unfair. The 5-8 Giants have been anything but consistent or solid this year, while the 11-2 Seahawks are, arguably, the NFL's most dominant team — a team that has, and is entirely capable of embarrassing opponents.
It's a potential fate that Big Blue defensive end Justin Tuck isn't interesting in experiencing.
“The last thing you want to be is embarrassed,” Tuck said Wednesday. “This is a team if you’re not ready to play, they will embarrass you – and laugh about it. That’s point blank. I ain’t in the business of being embarrassed. I’m in the business of going out there and putting on a great show for our fans and helping us win football games.”
The Seahawks certainly have humiliated others at times this season, dropping the New Orleans Saints 34-7 a few weeks ago and the San Francisco 49ers 29-3 earlier in the season. Meanwhile, the Giants have been on the embarrassing end of a number of losses already, getting demolished 37-14 this past Sunday by the San Diego Chargers and 38-0 nothing by the Carolina Panthers in Week Three.
Like Tuck, defensive back Terrell Thomas feels they've been humiliated far too often this year and it's time for that to stop.
“I think we got embarrassed enough this season,” said Thomas. “It’s time for us to come out here and play.”
Coming off a frustrating loss to the 49ers, the boys from Seattle will be looking to draw some blood. So if the Giants hope to avoid embarrassment, they better bring an A game that has not yet been shown this season.
