Former New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck claps back at Philadelphia Eagles fan who took a shot at him on Twitter.
A little back-and-forth occurred on Twitter on Thursday between former New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck and an Eagles fan.
It started when the Giants’ Twitter account posted a throwback video from a 2006 game. It was Week 2 of that season where the Giants were down 24-7 in the fourth quarter against the Eagles. They eventually came back to tie it up before overtime, where Eli Manning lofted up a pass to Plaxico Burress who caught it and crossed the goal line. The Giants won the game 30-24, in what was one of the great fourth-quarter comebacks of Manning’s career.

An ignorant Eagles fan thus took upon the notion to reply to the tweet and tag Tuck. The fan tweeted a picture of DeSean Jackson in 2010 returning a game-winning punt return against the Giants for a touchdown. The Giants were up 31-10 in that game, in what became known as the second Miracle at the Meadowlands.
Tuck, who could’ve just ignored the Tweet, responded with an all-time clap-back.
I have more Rings than your franchise…… your turn lol https://t.co/nb5k2RkLp8

It’s a true statement nonetheless. The Eagles only have the one Super Bowl victory where they defeated the Patriots in February of 2018.
Tuck won two Super Bowls during his time in New York, having won Super Bowls 42 and 46. As a matter of fact, if Manning didn’t win the MVP of Super Bowl 42, Tuck could’ve been a contender for it. Tuck racked up six tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble in that game in which the Giants ousted the Patriots 17-14.
The former Giant is currently in a vice president role for Goldman Sachs after getting his MBA from the Wharton School of Business. He recently praised Giants rookie defensive back Julian Love, who attended Tuck’s alma mater, Notre Dame.
