Here’s what Justin Tuck had to say:
“I told him several times never to do that again,” Tuck said Wednesday. “We’re going to have another talk about not doing it. Everyone knows how athletic he is, but the last thing we need is him having some tweak injury by showing off to the crowd.” (credit: ESPN)

I have probably talked about David Wilson 4-5 times this season as a pick up. This time, I mean it.

After tearing up the lowly Saints, Wilson showed an ability that no other skill player on the rookie as the...

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...
