“We have a lack of excitement on the sideline,” the two-time Pro Bowler told reporters. “When I look up and down the sidelines, sometimes we’re in it and sometimes we’re not. I don’t know what the reason is for that.”
There were very few individual performances to point out, so for the first time we’re going to select some units in our following segment because this was a collective effort.
The Giants are 0-2. It’s not an inescapable hole. There may be many days ahead. But bad things don’t happen to good teams. The performance level must rise.
New York has decided to sit rookie running back Michael Cox, who has been their No. 1 kickoff returner.
Giants safety Antrel Rolle says running back David Wilson has only two options after his nightmarish season opener: “He can either get in the tank, or he can man up.” Rolle didn’t recommend, however, that Wilson blast his critics on Twitter.
“The Giants have given me a great opportunity,” Jacobs said Tuesday. “This is where I wanted to be. These are the coaches I want to play for and I wanted to come back with my teammates.”
According to multiple reports, the Giants have brought back Brandon Jacobs on a one-year deal.
Brandon Jacobs played for the Giants from 2005-11. On Twitter, Jacobs said he’d “give it all I got” to get back with Big Blue.
David Wilson is ready to become an every-down halfback for the New York Giants in the wake of the injury to backup Andre Brown.
It’s amazing how good a former team can look once you’ve sampled someplace else, and how bad things can be when you’re there in the first place. Brandon Jacobs, Darrelle Revis and Tim Tebow must be feeling those emotions right now.
Brandon Jacobs hasn’t exactly been keeping it a secret. He wants to return to the Giants. But what are the chances, really?
The New York Post posted a screen grab from Jacobs’ Instagram in which he’s running over a Patriots defender in a Giants uniform. Under the picture, Jacobs writes, “Trying to get back in this uniform.”
“That’s ridiculous,” he said. “…Running backs, the first thing that gets there is our head. That’s kind of weird. I guess they expect us to lead with our chests now rather than our head.”
A New Jersey State Police sergeant who led an unauthorized escort of a high-speed sports car caravan to Atlantic City in 2012 pleaded guilty to altering the numbers on the license plates of his police car during the incident, Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa announced Monday.
The Giants made a perilous decision. They’re banking on David Wilson and Andre Brown — two younger, unproven backs — to develop into Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw at half the price.
