Giants Talk Dynasty, Don't Bother with Jets Headlines

The New York Giants were out in full support Thursday night to help spread the awareness for Justin Tuck's R.U.S.H. for Literacy event in New York City.

Some of the G-Men in attendance included linebacker Michael Boley, cornerback Prince Amukamara and defensive ends Osi Umenyiora and Jason Pierre Paul.

While the topic of the night was Tuck's charity, the questions surrounding Big Blue and their future quickly came into focus. With two rings in four years, the talk of dynasty got thrown around, and the man of the night didn't shy away form his feeling on the subject.

"You know it pops in my head," Tuck said. "It's every team's goal, they all want to be a part of the greatest teams to ever play this game. "

If the Giants want to ever reach that plateau, they're going to have to work harder than perhaps the previous two championship runs combined as they face a slew of games against some of the league's best teams this upcoming season.

The Giants are scheduled to face seven playoff teams from last year, including the Packers, 49ers, Saints, Falcons, Ravens, Bengals and Steelers. But that doesn't seem to worry Boley.

Boley told, "Having more time, having these OTAs and minicamps, versus trying to rush everything, I think we'll definitely be better. We can most definitely repeat. I mean two in four years, what more could you ask for?"

But even with the all of the success the Giants have enjoyed, their cross-stadium rivals somehow continue to grab headlines away from the reigning Super Bowl champs.

The addition of quarterback Tim Tebow quickly had media outlets running to their churches and praying for an interview with the overnight celebrity. Tebow quickly grew from backup QB to a fairytale stud, pleasing and infuriating people from all over the country, but the Giants don't care too much about all that.

"We're more than content to let them take the headlines, we'll just continue to win championships", said defensive lineman Chris Canty.

Most Giants there echoed their teammates' words, except for Amukamara, who didn't seem to care too much about what was going on with Gang Green.

"I don't own a TV at all, so I don't really hear the news or watch anything, all I know is Tebow is there."

Although the Giants don't play the Jets in a meaningful game this year, that one overriding theme of supremacy will continue to hang and possibly haunt both teams all season. Welcome to New York.
