What? He isn't being overlooked.

Check the threads - people are calling for Brown to start and for Wilson to get a share of the action.

I like Brown, but he averaged less per carry than Bradshaw this week... he wasn't exactly lighting a fire on offense either.

I agree with Brown over Wilson at this point however. But I would like to see Wilson getting a few carries just to provide a spark. Wilson provides the big play that AB1 and AB2 do not... which is why you hear many calling for him to get more carries. I would like him to get a few a game, but I personally don't see him as an every down back and certainly not the back that would be used in short yardage situations.

He is not easily overlook. But no one is expecting Brown to be able to rattle off a 40 yard TD run. Both Brown and Wilson seem to have a better sense for the holes than Bradshaw does right now. I think alot of people are thinking Coughlin is being too harsh with Wilson and need to get the kid some playing time.

Your right (Coughlin is being too harsh with Wilson ) The Reason IMO is the Fumble Wilson made ! For some reason he still feels he's not ready, Also his Blocking needs to get better. And he's a Rookie !

Yet it's fine for Bradshaw to fumble an opening possession.

Bradshaw dancing in the backfield is killing our drives. He tries to make one too many cuts when he should just settle for what the defense gives u. That's why I prefer brown over Ahmad as of today. Bradshaw vision is not what it use to be and his body is definitely near what he was when he came into the league. Sorry but we need to go with brown from now on and let Bradshaw figure himself out.

About Wilson, seriously, he's lost a step when returning punts. Was something said to him? I mean, before, he caught the ball and just jetted. Now, he has to survey the field before making a decision as to where to run with the ball.

i dont think Wilson is favored by many over Brown! personally i think Brown should get a lot more playing time than he does!

until Wilson adapts to the pro game he will be spotty in the offense. he is our best kickoff returner and has kept us close with his play there!

I don't think Wilson has returned a punt this year but certainly Randle has been the established punt returner for most of the season.

RF I haven't figure this new MB out yet.
Hope you get this.

What isn't true?
Some of it? All of it? Why?

Is Wilson better than A Brown at this point?
Or is it the over looked part?

More Experience?

do you mean getting Cut from Four Teams? Playing Three Games with Denver for Minus 1 Yard on 2 Attempts?

so far dropped two passes, and clearly missed a couple protection blocks

Brown is not the answer, short yardage maybe, but not a premier back

7 Carries for 20 yards

Wilson has the Speed/Elusiveness Cut-Back Ability, but not on one or two carries when people know he is going to run,

yeah coughlin still thinks deihl is the answer also, he's still very thick-headed. Don't get me wrong I love coughlin great coach, but he needs to learn to utilize his guys and not pick favorites all the time.. It's one thing to put a veteran to start, its another not to pull them do to bad play when a younger player has the skill set to out perform the vet whos just not cutting it anymore.

I'd like to see Brown and Wilson get alot more carries. Time for Bad Wheels Bradshaw to rest up those broken feet.

Think he means the kickoffs... but i noticed the same thing. I think Wilson's being coached out of his natural instincts and overthinking what he's doing on the returns now.
