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.
When a pro athlete fails to realize his potential there’s usually something more tangible and turbulent behind it.
So what causes these odd alliances? Like politics, a mutual need. When boxed into a corner, old hatchets get buried for the mutual good. In the end, it’s just business.
The 49ers suspended Brandon Jacobs on Monday for the final three games following a series of posts on social media sites addressing his lack of playing time, including one during the weekend saying he was “on this team rotting away.”
Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has been activated for the Giants against the 49ers in a rematch of last season’s NFC championship game.
Perhaps the only thing missing from this game are the stakes – it’s only the sixth week of the regular season, although it’s very possible the winner will be able to call upon this result to help gain a tiebreaker advantage for the playoffs.
You outscore two teams 79-3, and even though they’re the Jets and Bills, people take notice. The Giants certainly have.
Only a fool would eulogize the Jets — a first-place team after three games — in Week 4. Yet it won’t be the first time I’ve acted the fool. The Jets’ season is over. Done. Dead. Muerto.
On Friday, Jets linebacker Bart Scott had to be separated by team personnel from Dan Leberfeld of Jets Confidential. The bizarre altercation happened inside the Jets’ locker room
