Petitgout responds



Luke2 Left tackle Luke Petitgout was as surprised as anyone to hear the critical comments from Giants general manager Jerry Reese about him in the New York Post.

Petitgout said he was angry about it but wouldn't have any retaliatory comments after learning the GM of his former team called him, among other things, a marginal player. He said only, "I don't know why he's worried about me. It is what it is."

Petitgout said it gives him "something to put up in my locker" for inspiration. The tackle played eight seasons for the Giants but was released unexpectedly after 2006, a season in which he missed the final seven games with a broken leg.
