ALBANY, N.Y. -- What do the New York Giants think of Jets quarterback Tim Tebow?

How do they think the Jets will use him in Saturday’s game against them?

What about the grip Tebowmania has on New York?

“Is that where we’re going with this session?” Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said this week, finally snapping at the repeated questions from reporters about Tebow and the Jets. “Because last time I checked, I play for the Giants. I’ve only heard one question about the Giants. I really don’t want to talk about the Jets.”

Get ready, Justin, because this is only beginning.  

Tuck did slide in a little crosstown jab at the newest darling of Madison Avenue.

“I’m just eager to play the game, and fortunately for us it involves Tebow,” he said. “I might not even get the opportunity to play against him. I don’t know how they’re going to do it. What I’m worried about is their right tackle, their right guard, their center, their left guard, and their left tackle. That’s what I’m facing; quarterbacks are just a bonus.”

Being under the radar isn’t so bad.

The Jets might have the buzz in the nation’s No. 1 market, but the Giants have the bling.
