The New York Giants are one of the worst teams in the NFL. Coming into the 2013 season, the Giants were thought to be a serious contender in the NFC — like they usually are. If I told you prior to the season that the Giants would start the season 0-5, you would have called me crazy — but just look at them now.
Eli Manning is on a record pace for interceptions thrown. In fact, he has just eight touchdown passes and 12 interceptions through five games. Manning is a former Super Bowl champion and he now looks like he’s a rookie who has never faced pressure before — this team is crumbling relatively quickly.
David Wilson was also supposed to star on offense this season at running back, but he has underperformed and, at times, found himself on the bench watching other running back take some of his carries.
Wilson, however, has proven to be electric at times and although he has just 146 yards and a single touchdown through five games this season, he has potential to be a solid back in this league.
Although he has struggled, when he has scored, which was twice but one got called back, he has show some amazing acrobatics. Watch as he does an unprecedented double backflip after scoring his first real touchdown of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles:
His season has not gone as planned, but the former first round draft pick has the talent to help this team get their first win of the season. However, Manning’s interceptions and the Giants’ poor defense have become so much of an issue that it’s almost impossible for this team to contend for a victory.
If football doesn’t work out, there’s always gymnastics.
