There were very few individual performances to point out, so for the first time we’re going to select some units in our following segment because this was a collective effort.
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 Jets are still looking for a quarterback. The Giants need a defense. And both Rex Ryan and Tom Coughlin have a ton of questions to answer.
If he can make a few people start hurting, starting with some Jets receivers on Saturday, he’ll be on his way. And the Giants’ secondary will be better for it.
“I do see myself, envision myself out here on the practice field, getting ready for that Cowboys game, getting ready to go down to Texas to play those guys,” Cruz said. “That’s what I do envision.”
