Usually a unit that is ranked 29th in the NFL doesn?t have too much excitement surrounding it.

However, the Giants? running game, averaging just 69.9 yards per game, all of a sudden looks like a multifaceted entity that could actually be a weapon for this team.

Again, the eventual grade will be based on production up until this point, not the future. But it?s important for us to look at what this unit may look like in the second half.

Bring on David Wilson!

With the recent release of workhorse running back Ahmad Bradshaw, Wilson is expected to be the lead dog in the backfield in 2013.

The rookie came on strong late in the season and bounced back nicely from his opening night fumble on the national stage. But now that Bradshaw is gone, the Giants will have to be a little more patient with Wilson as he continues his development.

Kevin Gilbride met the media Friday to discuss the offensive game plan ? mainly focusing on the rushing game ? heading into Monday night?s primetime contest with the division rival Washington Redskins.

The big news all week has been that rookie running back David Wilson will likely see more action in lieu of Andre Brown?s season-ending broken fibula. Gilbride said Wilson is working hard, and he?s encouraged with the rookie?s progress.

?I think he?s making fewer mistakes, and I think you see a little bit of it, an incremental growth,? Gilbride said. ?It?s never as fast as a coach would want, but it is definitely happening.?

After a solid performance against the Colts last weekend, Mark Sanchez might feel a little respite from the heat he's faced over the previous two weeks, but but according to Sanchez, he's not affected by the intense scrutiny he's been under, via National Football Post.

Sanchez also insisted that he had blocked out all the speculation and talk that his starting job was in jeopardy with Tebow waiting in the wings and the Jets struggling coming into the game.

?It?s just part of the job,? Sanchez said. ?It was a victory for the team in general. As long as we?re winning, I?m happy. We just have to keep doing that and try to stay efficient. Block everything else out and just keep playing for the guys in the locker room.?For Sanchez, we're sure that the win feels best of all, but that it doesn't hurt to have the local and national media off his back for at least a week. ?Ray Lucas was insistent in the SNY Postgame show that the Jets quarterback is at his best when Shonn Greene and the running game can gain some yards on the ground. ?While New England has looked mortal this season, but one area in which they are playing extremely well is on defense against the run.
