On July 24th when it was announced (by yours truly) that Keith Bulluck was signing with the NY Giants, there were some doubts as to what Bulluck had left in the tank. Bulluck all along knew there was more than enough left in the tank and could not wait to show all the doubters they were wrong.
One of those that reported on the doubters was Adam Schefter of ESPN….

I found it a bit strange that Adam would be so negative, most reporting on the news of Bulluck signing talked about this being a good pickup by the Giants. Of course there were going to be some questions about Bulluck’s knee but it wasn’t as if he was at the level of seriousness of Wes Welker’s knee injury. As Giants Training Camp has progressed Bulluck has quieted the critics by doing what he has done the past 10 seasons. Even Adam Schefter had to give Bulluck his props after seeing him up close and live….
On the first play of his first day of practice with the Giants in a 9-on-7 drill, linebacker Keith Bulluck made his presence felt immediately. For starters, Bulluck was positioning the defense even though he never had played in it. Then he was the first defender to get to the football once it was snapped.
New York is counting on more of both from Bulluck — leadership and plays. When New York signed him last month, some wondered how much the 33-year-old linebacker had left, which might help to explain why Bulluck ran over to a reporter at the beginning of Saturday’s practice to say, “Got a lot left — and those other teams will see.” – Adam Schefter
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
