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.
“David Wilson only has two options — he can either get in the tank, or he can man up,” Giants safety Antrel Rolle said Tuesday on WFAN.
Most of the focus after New York’s Week 1 loss has been on second-year RB David Wilson, who was benched in the second half due to fumble-itis. Victor Cruz knows what he’s going through.
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.
Coughlin refused to discuss his starting lineup, noting the team needs Wilson.
The Giants turned over the ball six times in their 36-31 road loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
New York started the game with turnovers on their first three drives, all in the first 6½ minutes. There were two INTs by Eli Manning, including his first pass. That’s not how you want to start a season.
“I don’t think there’s anything to it,” Manning said of his 4-0 record at AT&T Stadium, which allegedly included the Giants quarterback scribbling his name, the score, the date and the words “First Win in the New Stadium” in the visitors locker room.
Week-to-week storylines around the NFL will continue to be unpredictable for experts. Joe Giglio gives his 48 predictions to watch during the 2013 NFL season.
The old refrain remains the same as the Giants prepare to kick off their season Sunday night in Dallas: as goes Eli Manning, so goes Big Blue. But this year there’s an added component.
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.
Backup running back Andre Brown has broken his left leg for the second straight year, but he’s staying positive. “It’s not that bad of a break,” he said. “It’s just a tiny little crack in there.”
Tom Coughlin has seen flashes from his team, and he has a good core from two years ago to step up and lead.
