“Michael Sam is a gifted athlete and a courageous man,” Giants co-owner Steve Tisch told TMZ Sports. “I hope any NFL team would not hesitate to draft Michael if he is right for their team.”
The powers that be in East Rutherford don’t care much for participating in HBO’s training camp reality series “Hard Knocks.” But they might not have a choice.
HBO’s widely-popular “Hard Knocks” series has earned its share of praise from critics and major awards since the show debuted in 2001. Giants co-owner Steve Tisch is not a fan.
Naturally, when the news of the former first-round pick joining Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and company came out it garnered significant reaction. Here are some reactions from the twitterverse from celebrities, analysts and athletes.
Steve Tisch told TMZ last month that he felt “badly” for Tebow. Now the quarterback has signed with New England — and Tisch is singing a different tune.
“I feel badly for the guy,” Tisch told TMZ. “Had another team picked him up after the Broncos, maybe he’d have a career. I think him going from the Broncos to the Jets was not in anybody’s best interest.”
Tisch thinks Cruz will get an offer “a little higher” than the $6 million per year owed to slot receiver Wes Welker, who signed a two-year deal last week with the Denver Broncos.

The Giants have bought in 100 percent with their 65-year-old coach, and he is enjoying every second of it.

Tom Coughlin will enjoy an extended stay with the Giants, even though months have passed since ownership first promised an extension for their head coach. “That will get done, so that’s not an issue,” John Mara said Thursday.
It came as a surprise Wednesday night, when Showtime’s Inside the NFL aired footage of New York’s head coach channeling his ‘inner Rex,’ telling his team that anybody who criticizes the Giants’ 10-6 season can “kiss my a–!”
The Jets are in the playoffs and the Giants are not, so it makes sense that the Jets were the lead story today on this Tuesday edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza.
