    Justin Tuck went outside the box for new inspiration. Giants general manager Jerry Reese recently said he had a conversation with Tuck about underperforming, and hoped that Tuck could "get back to his old form." So, Ohm has an interesting story about New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck , who's trying to get out of this mental funk in which he's spent the last couple of years by going to Tony Robbins seminars that include walking on hot coals: Ohm writes that Tuck and Robbins have a mutual friend who encouraged Tuck to attend the four-day seminar as part of his plan to shake up whatever's kept him from performing at the dominant level he attained earlier in his career. I've always found Tuck's honesty refreshing, and the idea that he admits to not being his old self psychologically is a fascinating one amid the tough-guy clichés you hear from so many in his profession.
