ESPYS Interview Series: Justin Tuck
For the 20th ESPYS, ESPN has selected the 20 greatest sports moments of the past 20 years. At No. 17, Justin Tuck and the New York Giants stunned fans around the world when they upset the undefeated New England Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII. Justin Tuck recently spoke with ESPN.com about that game, his charity and his expectations for this season.
You're talented and fortunate enough to have been a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams. What goes through your mind once you've won it all?
Immediately after winning both of them, honestly you're just thankful for your teammates, the fans and the opportunity to be a part of history.
When it comes to your two Super Bowl wins, does one stick out more than the other?
It's hard to beat the first one, for the fact that it's your first one. In dramatic fashion, I love both of them for different reasons, but the first one is always going to have that new and fresh feel to it. So I think the first one is a little bit better than the second one.
What does it mean to you to come back this season alongside Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora?
I think this trio here could possibly, at the end of our careers, go down in history as better than the trio of Osi, Jason and Michael Strahan. I think we have that much talent. We're going to be in New York for a long time it looks like, so hopefully we can play great and go down in history as one of the best defensive line combinations ever.
