The two-time Super Bowl MVP told Mike Francesa on Monday during his weekly spot on WFAN that despite their 0-2 record, the Giants aren’t as far away from turning the season around as many think.
The 2014 season is beginning like a repeat of the 2013 campaign for the New York Football Giants. Even with Arizona starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined with a bad shoulder, the G-men could not take advantage of backup Drew Stanton seeing his first action since 2010 and handed the Cardinals a 25-14 victory at the Meadowlands.
Even when the Giants finally scored their first touchdown, they needed four plays to reach the end zone from a yard out. And that was one of the highlights.
New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is heading into the regular season under the microscope.
The Detroit Lions and the New York Giants are polar opposites when comparing NFL franchises.
Although the performance against Indy has led to widespread consternation about Manning and his first-unit group, one must understand that McAdoo is keeping things under wraps.
Rashad Jennings is taking advantage of his opportunity to be a key part of the New York Giants’ running game.
Rashad Jennings is atop the depth chart with journeyman Peyton Hillis behind him, followed by Williams and still raw prospects Kendall Gaskins and Michael Cox.
By the time the Jennings-Williams rotation shows any results worth serious analysis, Wilson and his short career will be far from anyone’s mind. Football is cold-hearted that way.
“It was good to get the running game going and get that offensive line firing off,” Manning said after Sunday’s preseason win over Buffalo. “That always helps out the whole offense.”
The severity of Wilson’s neck injury has not been released by the team. One report by NJ.com said the 23-year-old would “need a miracle” to get back on the field.
Wilson insists everything is “fine” with his surgically repaired neck, but the Giants are reportedly preparing for the worst.
Rashad Jennings never made fun of the fat kid with asthma who couldn’t keep up with everyone else: Jennings was that kid.
For whatever Rashad Jennings becomes in the Giants’ backfield, he’ll never top his own personal journey to the NFL.
Rashad Jennings, Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox and David Wilson. Does that make your mouth water? Well that’s what the Giants’ backfield looked like Tuesday after the news broke that Andre Brown signed a deal with the Texans.
