In a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, New York Giants’ defensive end was asked what he believed to be the difference between the Dallas Cowboys offensive line in 2009, and this season’s bunch. His answer, in a word, was confusion.
"Just a little bit more confusion. It seems like sometimes they're not on the same page," Tuck said, per ESPN Dallas. "When they are [on the same page], I've seen them move great. I don't know what the case is as far as communication is. That's the only thing I've seen differently."
Aside from the departure of left tackle Flozell Adams, who (of course) was replaced by Doug Free, the personnel remains the same from 2009. But injuries and some underachievement have hampered the group. Meanwhile, Flozell Adams has been reborn to some degree in Pittsburgh, where he plays on the right side.
Tuck, who was somewhat famously injured when he was tripped by Adams in a game last season, apparently hasn’t forgotten about the incident.
"I wish I could play against Flo to be honest with you," Tuck said.
Asked why, Tuck opted against expanding: “I'll keep it to myself.”
