New York Giants running back David Wilson entered this season with big expectations, coming fresh out of Virginia Tech. There was some talk he could unseat Ahmad Bradshaw, and possibly make him expendable. 10 games into his rookie season, Wilson is close to being expendable.
The Giants like the potential Wilson has but they need him to “grow up.”
“David has to learn you can’t be just a runner, that’s not what we do, you have to be a complete running back, you have to be knowledgeable, you have to be smart, you can’t just accept your mistakes,” Giants running backs coach Jerald Ingram told the New York Post. “It’s about winning games, it’s not a popularity contest. It’s time for you to grow up and be a man now and see what you can do with the whole ball of wax. Until he proves that it’s hard to stick him out there and feel comfortable.
“All those things are taken into consideration when you determine whether a guy gets playing time or not.”
Well David, man up, or get replaced. It’s that simple.

According to The Big Lead, via Black Sports Online, former New York Giants running back is charging people $1,950 to play flag football, basketball, or kickball with him.
This is hilarious, but I guess when you’re a former pro football player whose media career went up in flames, you have to find a way to pay for a multi-million dollar apartment in new York...
After starting out on fire by throwing 12 touchdowns to just seven interceptions in the first seven games of the season, quarterback Eli Manning has found himself in a major slump -- perhaps the worst one of his career since his rookie season -- that is now three weeks old. Over the last three games, Manning has not only failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time in his...

To say that the New York Giants played a bad game on Sunday would be an understatement. Watching that game, many would think that this was the worst game the Giants have played in recent years.
After watching that game, it was hard to tell if the team that was just on the TV was the Giants or if it was a misprint and everyone just watched the Jets.
Despite the horrendous game and...
With the Giants loss to the Bengals yesterday, the blame game is a fun thing to do. I've seen a few mentions of Eli Manning not having zip on the ball. Whatever. I say that because it's a moot point. The Giants, under Tom Coughlin, perform just well enough in the regular season to stumble into the playoffs, and then somehow win Super Bowls. It's just how this team works...

Is collapse in full swing and has mass hysteria begun in East Rutherford? Most will feel that way and the immature fandom inside me wants to scream that at the top of my lungs.
Tom Coughlin, who labeled his defense “soft” this past week, did something an old fashioned fan would love: choose to differ. That decision alone made it seem that the Giants were ready to come out and...

What an disaster horrific loss for the Giants this past Sunday against the Bengals on the road. This was the worse loss of the season.
There was no focus, passion, sense of urgency and desire at all from Big Blue in ay aspect of the football game.
