I love football and I will watch almost any game no matter who is playing, regardless of the lack of meaning that a particular contest could have.But when a game appears on the schedule that is make or break for teams, you really have my attention. The 7-5 Giants desperately needed a win to stay ahead of the Cowboys and the surging Redskins, while the Saints last hope for the playoffs and, moreover, respectability was at stake.Drew Brees has owned the Giants, winning the last three contests in a string of flawless performances. Eli has been a disaster at these contests, looking more confused than Sara Palin at a Mensa meeting.It was not to be. History would not repeat itself as Big Blue beat the Saints like they owed the Mara family money. Eli, after his usual rough start, threw four TDs and found himself out shined by David Wilson, who ran by the Saints' D so fast that they went back in time.The Saints had been hanging on (even after that debacle against Atlanta) to their playo...

Here We Go Again: David Wilson

Finally going to get my shot Juan… I have probably talked about David Wilson 4-5 times this season as a pick up.  This time, I mean it.  Wilson has the leash off and Coughlin looks like he finally trusts the kid and the Giants need the kid going into this final stretch.  After tearing up the lowly Saints, Wilson showed an ability that no other skill player on the rookie as the...

Giants need to give RB David Wilson more playing time

With everything going wrong for Ahmad Bradshaw right now, the Giants need to give rookie David Wilson more playing time at RB. He gives the Giants a whole new spark of energy in the running game and obviously in the kick return game as well. David Willson had 227 yards on kick returns, 100 rushing yards which turn into a total of 327 all purpose yards and scored 3 touchdowns including...

Wilson sparks Giants to key win over fading Saints

When the New York Giants made their run to the Super Bowl a year ago, a 99-yard touchdown catch and run by Victor Cruz against the Jets seemed to be the ignition point. It was a play that woke up an inconsistent team and turned it into a power. If the 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday turns out to be the victory that gets the Giants (8-5) going again, everyone is...

Giants Slam Saints In Meadowlands Shootout: Hero/Zero Of The Game

Baldwin, Wilson lead wire additions

Week 14 in most leagues either started fantasy playoffs or was the final game to determine the seedings for playoffs starting in Week 15. Some fantasy performers - Kyle Rudolph, Larry Fitzgerald, A.J. Green, Chris Johnson - let down their owners with disappointing performances. It was hard to register a win if you went up against the Seattle defense who in some formats scored up...

The Giants Need David Wilson to Step Up

The emergence of Andre Brown this year was quickly becoming one of the feel good stories of the NFL.  Brown, a fourth year player who was originally drafted by the Giants in 2009, had been cut five times in his career before coming back to the Giants in 2011.  Being cut one more time could have been the end for Brown, but he got his chance early in 2012 and has been a key contributor...

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades @ Giants

Special teams is much tougher to grade than defense because a lot of times mistakes are hard to pin point. But in theory, the entire unit deserves an F for how they covered kickoffs. That was a joke and David Wilson pretty much won this game on his own. It was also an up and down performance by the defense, which looked ok at times and seemed to revert back to early season form at...
