Tuck Says He Will Punch Any Player That Turns On Coach

Tuck_2013New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck came to his coach’s defense Sunday, saying that if any of his teammates turn on Tom Coughlin, he will “punch him in the mouth.”

Tuck made the comment after the Giants fell to 0-4 with a 31-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

“If anyone turns on our coach, I would be the first one to punch him in the mouth,” Tuck said, according to the New York Daily News. “And put that in print. It better not happen, I know that.”

Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz questioned one of Coughlin’s decisions in Sunday’s game. With the Giants trailing 10-7 late in the third quarter and facing fourth-and-1 at their 30, Coughlin elected to punt rather than go for a first down.

“We’ve got to take a risk at some point and make something happen,” Cruz told reporters.
