Giants WR Hakeem Nicks: Jets Like 'The Limelight'

Tuesday April 17th, 2012

While the New York Jets have gotten the majority of the offseason attention, their rival, the New York Giants, let their play on the field do the talking. The reigning Super Bowl champions have been under the radar most of the offseason, while the Jets are stealing headlines, especially after signing quarterback Tim Tebow.

"Man it feels good. We look at it like the Jets ... they can get the (offseason) credit. They like being in the limelight," Giants wide receiver said in an interview with a Charlotte radio station, according to USA Today. "We feed off of our coach (Tom Coughlin). Our coaches (say) don't talk and play the game....We don't gotta sit here and boost ourselves up. We'll go out there and prove out on the field. That's what we did."
