Giants TE Shockey: I drink, I play hard, I want to win

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ Former Oklahoma high school and junior-college football star Jeremy Shockey apparently hasn't been changed by four seasons in the N-F-L.

The three-time Pro Bowl tight end from Ada 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 20-minute session with reporters yesterday, Shockey was mostly positive about the Giants' chances this season.

He criticized his own lack of patience, noted that the team's current offense limits him and that Coughlin can sometimes be annoyingly stubborn.

While candid, the comments were mild compared to those made before his second season in 2003.

That's 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.

Shockey began his college career at Northeastern Oklahoma A-and-M in Miami.
