It didn’t take long for the Giants to find their motivation for another championship run. That happened in May, in a private room at Tiffany & Co. in Manhattan, just after they got their Super Bowl XLVI championship rings.
That’s when Justin Tuck insisted his second ring only made him “that much hungrier” for another. That’s the first time he used the D-word that figures to carry the Giants all year long.

“Our thing now is we want to be a dynasty. We want to make it a dynasty.”
The door for the Giants to be that “dynasty” and the dominant team of this era is wide open and they’ll begin their quest to charge through it on Thursday when they report to training camp at the University at Albany.
