Teammates, most vocally Justin Tuck, want Wilson do ditch the backflip for something safer, such as a bow. But at least one prominent Giants player wants to see as many back-flips as possible on Sunday when the Giants face the Falcons in Atlanta.
“Hey, if that means he's scoring touchdowns, I hope he has five backflips this week,’’ Eli Manning said. “It's OK with me.’’
Can Eli do a backflip?
“I've never tried but I assume I can,’’ Manning said.
What about guard Chris Snee?
“I don't think we want to watch that,’’ Manning said of his offensive lineman. “I highly doubt it."
