NFL’S TOP 10 RECEIVING CORPS

NFL.com ranked the best receiving corps across the league — including tight ends — and the Giants’ passing attack came in at No. 4, behind the Cowboys, Broncos, and the Falcons, who claimed the top spot.

“When healthy, Nicks is one of just a dozen NFL wide receivers capable of drawing and beating double coverage,” Chris Wesseling wrote. “Cruz is the only player in the NFL with at least 80 receptions, 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns in each of the past two seasons. Randle should be an upgrade on Domenik Hixon in the third receiver role.”

Also included behind New York: Packers, Saints, Seahawks, Cardinals, Colts, and Eagles.

Tuck celebrates birth of son on Father’s Day

Posted by Dan Salomone on June 17, 2013 – 9:00 am

The young Tucks have a knack for special birthdays.

At the rally following the Super Bowl parade in February of last year, Justin Tuck had the Metlife Stadium crowd sing “Happy Birthday” to his first son, Jayce. Sixteen months later on Father’s Day, the Giants’ two-time Super Bowl champion and his wife, Lauran, celebrated the birth of their second son, Jonah Frederick Tuck.

The defensive end shared the news on Twitter:

Tuck remembers “Sack Master” Deacon Jones

Posted by Dan Salomone on June 4, 2013 – 9:00 am

Over the years, the Giants and their fans have taken great pride in the art of sacking the quarterback. On Monday, the man to thank for coining the term, Deacon Jones, died at the age of 74.

Jones, whose Hall-of-Fame career began in 1961 with the Los Angeles Rams, is considered one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history, making eight Pro Bowls (seven straight from 1964-1970) at defensive end and winning two NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Eight years after his final season, the sack became an official NFL statistic in 1982, paving the way for players like Giants great Michael Strahan. On Tuesday morning, the Giants’ all-time sack leader paid his respects:

Same went for Justin Tuck, who leads all current Giants in that department:
