Looking forward to more interceptions

Bob Gosman writes that the Giants knew they could do better against the Packers than Indy and have come a long way since the preseason and week 1. Neil Best offers a fair evaluation of the newest members playing in the Giants secondary: Gibril Wilson, Frank Walker, and Amani Toomer:

Wilson, in his first start since veteran Shaun Williams was declared out for the season, nearly had his third interception in three career games, but it was overturned on a replay challenge. He finished with a team-high 12 tackles, 10 of them solo.

Walker, playing his first game this season after suffering a fractured foot, saw extensive action in dime packages, another byproduct of the fallout from Williams’ injury. The Packers picked on him, but he held his own. He had a 69-yard interception return for a touchdown called back on a pass-interference penalty against him.

Walker seemed to have a chance to break up the touchdown pass from Brett Favre to Javon Walker, but he did not make a play on the ball and Walker completed a 28-yard scoring play.

Was that really Amani Toomer playing safety at the end of the game?

Yes. The star receiver lined up deep to protect against the Packers trying a long play designed to be a jump ball.

Toomer said he last played safety in high school. “It was very weird,” he said, “but anything to win.”

I don’t know about you, but Gibril Wilson is strting to really impress me. And he always plays hard.
