View Full Version : Shockey says his partying hasn’t slowed at all

Four seasons in the NFL haven’t changed Jeremy Shockey.

The three-time Pro Bowl tight end is still playing hard, partying hard, dying to win a championship, and saying things that will raise the eyebrows of the New York Giants and coach Tom Coughlin.

In a wide-ranging 20-minute session with reporters on Sunday that was mostly positive about the Giants’ chances this season, Shockey criticized his own lack of patience, noted that the team’s current offense limits him and that Coughlin can sometimes — to put it politely — be annoyingly stubborn.

While candid, the comments were mild compared to those made before his second season in 2003, when the flamboyant player angered late owner Wellington Mara by making a derogatory comment about Dallas coach Bill Parcells — the man who led the Giants to two Super Bowls — and discussing his sexual fantasies in a magazine piece.

“I play hard,” the 25-year-old Shockey said during a break at the Giants’ training camp at the University at Albany. “In life, I live life hard. I play hard on the football field. That’s just my mentality.”

This guy is a joke. Tough guy, but a joke. It's ridiculous to say that partying doesn't effect him. I should know, I've done my share of partying over the years and I know it has effected me....what was I talking about again???

Shockey Sustains Mild Concussion

New York Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey sustained a mild concussion in a collision with safety Will Demps, the team said Tuesday.

The three-time Pro Bowl player was injured late in the Giants' evening practice on Monday.

Shockey was taken to a hospital and released Monday night, but still was experiencing headaches Tuesday morning, said Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon, who doubted that Shockey would practice Tuesday.

Shockey was reaching for a pass from Eli Manning during a two-minute drill when Demps' elbow hit him in the facemask.
