Tom Coughlin doesn’t have many options at halfback for the winless New York Giants. The choice now is rookie Michael Cox, and that’s it. Yes, Michael Cox.
One man was killed and another injured early Sunday in a motorcycle accident on the Cross Island Parkway in Queens.
The Giants’ 0-6 start is the worst for the organization since it lost a franchise-worst nine in a row in 1976, a season that saw coach Bill Arnsparger fired after seven games.
David Wilson’s season could be over should the Giants’ running back require season-ending surgery to address spinal stenosis.
Eli? Coach Coughlin? GM Jerry Reese? You decide!
Injuries have been mounting for the 0-5 New York Giants; it seems that each game a different starter goes down with a serious injury. This week starting running back David Wilson has been ruled out with a neck injury.

Both Tillman and Briggs will be game-time decisions for the Bears.

After Sunday’s shutout loss to the previously winless Carolina Panthers, no one can argue that Big Blue hasn’t earned its position at the bottom of the NFC East standings. After all, the G-men allowed the Panthers to set a team record with seven sacks of Eli Manning. Panthers quarterback tossed three touchdown passes as Carolina thoroughly embarrassed New York 38-0.
Neither David Wilson nor Ray Rice got off to the flying start they wanted last week. The Broncos absolutely flattened the defending Super Bowl champs by a score of 49-27, while the Cowboys edged passed the Giants 36-31 in the opening week of the season.
“It’s like a dream,” Jacobs said about his return to the Giants. “I don’t think it’s real. After that practice, I was sure I was back.”
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.
