The New York Giants are in a tailspin at the onset of the season and defensive lineman Justin Tuck is doing everything he can to get the team back on the winning track.

Mired in a three-game skid and buried in the cellar of the NFC East, the New York Giants aren’t exactly off to a dazzling start to the 2013 regular season. New York trails the first place Dallas Cowboys by two games in the division; already dropping their head-to-head matchup in the season opener.

Playing in a wide open conference and a middling division, team captain Justin Tuck takes no solace in the fact that first place is still within his team’s grasp.

“I don’t really concern myself with what everybody else in the division does,” noted Tuck. “We have to right our ship. When we’re playing our best ball, it doesn’t matter what they do then either."

When on top of their game, the Giants can play with any team as evidenced by their two Super Bowl championships the past six seasons, but this year has been a different story. New York has been a far cry from a postseason contender as injuries have ravaged its offensive line and the defensive pass-rush is been nowhere to be found.

With rumblings of locker room turmoil making its way through the media, Tuck disregarded any notion that the Giants are a divided team.

”That’s the main focus, is staying together and making sure we keep guys in the right frame of mind,” said Tuck. “It’s still a long season. We still can do any and everything that we came into this season wanting to do, but we’ve got to figure out some things here real quickly.”
