Five that helped themselves…
CB Stoney Woodson – The best way to stand out as a late draft pick is to make big plays in games. Mission accomplished for Woodson via his second-quarter interception.
DE Maurice Evans – The rookie free agent showed the explosiveness that the Giants love when he belted Carolina QB Josh McCown for a sack/forced fumble.
LB Gerris Wilkinson – The underdog at WLB posted two tackles but also almost turned in the play of the game when he batted a pass in the end zone and almost intercepted it for six points.
S Travonti Johnson – A team-high seven tackles and a forced fumble is all in a good night's work.
CB Bruce Johnson – He might have been New York's best cover guy against Carolina with three tackles and a pass breakup.
Five that didn't…
QB Andre' Woodson – After showing so much progress during camp, Woodson seemed to revert to the questionable quarterback that we saw last season. He threw a bad INT and finished with a 19.1 QB rating.
WR Sinorice Moss – Not that he was awful, but Moss needs to make a big impact in order to stick around and four punt returns for a total of 20 yards and one nine-yard catch aren't quite cutting it.
OT William Beatty – We know it was just one play, but you never, ever, ever want to see your left tackle of the future blown away as easily as he was by Panthers DE Everette Brown.
WR David Tyree – Like Moss, Tyree really needs to impress. No receptions and one special teams tackle isn't exactly the way to go about doing so.
DT Rocky Bernard – You can't make the team if you don't play.
