The Giants have not forgotten.
They have moved on. They have won a Super Bowl. But that feeling of being pushed around on their own field by the Eagles last season — and not being able to anything about it at the time — still eats at them.
For the first time since Philadelphia won 17-10 in November, the Giants can retaliate Sunday.
Justin Tuck, speaking Tuesday at his RUSH for Literacy initiative, said the Giants got the last laugh against the Eagles and every other team in the league.
"When people ask me questions about other teams and things of that nature, I always say this: You go back to February and you see the last team that was standing," he said. "You ask any of those guys, where would they want to be on that date, they would say where we were. I don't think we have anything to prove."
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora and Eagles running back LeSean McCoy might not agree. They have feuded for years, calling each other names in person and on Twitter. Umenyiora has called McCoy "Lady Gaga."
McCoy pushed back in an interview with ESPN's E:60 that aired Tuesday. He said his rival is the Giants' fourth-best defensive end and called Umenyiora "a ballerina in a Giants uniform."
SUSPENSION FOR HIT ON SCHAUB: The league suspended Broncos linebacker Joe Mays one game and fined him $50,000 for the hit that dislodged Texans quarterback Matt Schaub's helmet and took off a piece of his ear. Mays, who drew a roughing-the-passer penalty, will appeal.
