“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.

Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has been activated for the Giants against the 49ers in a rematch of last season’s NFC championship game.

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
D.J. is hoping to make a big impression on Tom Coughlin and push for more playing time.
You wouldn’t think a couple of quotes from one of the newest non-Giants, now in a 49ers uniform, would create even a ripple of controversy here. And yet, Jacobs managed to do just that.
I don’t know if the Giants made the correct decision in letting Brandon Jacobs leave and join the 49ers, but Ahmad Bradshaw is good enough to be a consistent and productive No. 1 running back.
Attorney Charles Sciarra said he believes State Police Sgt. Nadir Nassry faces charges related to the alleged taping of license plates on the sports cars during the March 30 caravan.
