Wilson focused on winning, not rushing stats

New York Giants running back David Wilson talks largely about teamwork and execution going into the team's upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

The New York Giants 0-2 are a major disappointment for a team accustomed to being on top of the NFC east the past decade. Even with an 0-2 start, we have seen this before with the Giants, including the 2007 season when they went on to capture the Lombardi Trophy. They play the Carolina Panthers this Sunday and hope to bounce back in a big way.

When it comes to this topic, Big Blue's second year tailback had a lot to say about teamwork and executing plays. Giants' fans across the country are wondering exactly where does the team needs to change.

"It's a team effort," admitted Wilson. "Everybody has to do their job… we just have to focus on taking it one day at a time, one play at a time."

The Giants gave up a lot of plays against the Denver Broncos, but also had several opportunities to build a lead in the first half of Week 2.

"It comes down to our team… Seeing another team do what they do is one thing, but until you go out there and take advantage of it and do it, it's kind of irrelevant," said Wilson. ?

Overall, fans are hoping to see improvement against Carolina, and expect the win. Of course, so does the team. Watching tape allows the players to see mistakes in the games against Dallas and Denver, but will they be able to actually correct these mistakes?

"Guys know what they have to do," said Wilson. "It comes down to going on the field and executing and actually making the plays,"

"I really just want to get back on track with winning. The whole thing is about winning games, it's not about going out and running the ball well, it's not about passing the ball well. Whatever you have to do to get a win, you have to go out there and execute."

Even so, Wilson discussed stepping up in the running game, and both he and Eli Manning indicated that they're getting closer to crisp execution.

"I'm really looking forward to going to North Carolina and going down there and getting this win with my team."

We will all have to wait and see if this past week of practice has paid off for the Giants. Tune on Sunday at 1pm to find out.
