View Full Version : Why are we wasting David Wilson?

Why are we wasting the obvious talents of David Wilson? Maybe a screen pass, how about a pitch outside? If we regarded him so highly in the draft, maybe we need to put a little bit more faith in him, especially now! Are the coaches blind to the spark and speed on those kickoff returns? Does one fumble remit you to the doghouse for the year?

I keep saying that, but the coaches are not listening. What D.W. is doing A.B. can't do because he lack the speed and explosiveness. D.W. should start because he is the best RB on the team.

with this game i only hope he doesnt become over confident and forget about the 1 of the real objectives of this game.....holding onto the ball.

Getting hit by defensive players is far more likely to cause an injury than jumping in the air on your own. A backflip is no more potentially damaging than jumping is

You find me the list of atheletes who have had their careers end because of a poorly angled backflip.

About the worst thing that can happen is he lands on his head. But he has a helmet.

I'm all for preventing players of doing stupid things that risk injury. But a backflip is only slightly more dangerous than Cruz doing the salsa.

How? I keep asking this. How is jumping in the air more dangerous than a salsa?

Everyone keeps saying it, but the best they can come up with is "he could come down weird and tear up his leg". Which is total crap. Show that happening to any athlete anywhere ever.

Yes, Gramatica tore an ACL jumping straight up in the air.

Perhaps no player should be allowed to move at all in celebration, that would surely prevent injuries.

We are debating things that are like 1 in a million. Its pointless.

If we are that worried about protecting him from everything why let him drive home at night? Thats far more dangerous than doing a backflip

I suppose flipping would generate more momentum. A bad landing could break his ankle. The same could be said for Bradshaw's spike, though.

Wilson is experienced in performing these so it shouldn't be an issue.

I'm gonna give coach some slack here. I don't think it was that one fumble way back when keeping DW off the field. Running backs need to block first in our offense and they weren't about to put him in if they had any concerns about this part of his game. i think it's great he's coming on at the end of the season - opponents don't have much film on him so it's a nice little surprise for everyone!

Wilson's been doing the flip thing since his early school days... He did it all through college too.. No big deal if you ask me.. been doing it for a decade..

In all honesty, I was on the backflips are dangertous side of this at the beginning but Slip got me thiinking.


A lot of people DO get hurt during TD celebrations, the first one to come to mind is Hosely in the Preseason missing the first three regular season games with turf toe due to some gay *** high stepping into the endzone on a pick 6.


Then I started thinking, because Slip said it, how many of these injuries are doing something out of the ordinary? I again go back to the most recent one in my "sphere of give an eff" and come up with Hosely. If that stupid high step caused an injury you either ban TD celebrations of any kind, or you just cant pont a specific finger at the backflip.

Marion Barber not withstanding.

As far as this Back Flipping Concern, If It's Right or Wrong, It's up to Tom C & the Team Doctor to decide if it's OK . If he's doing it..... I'm sure they must have approved it ! When he scored his first TD and did his back Flip .....I called him "FLIP WILSON" ! A Lot of Posters said the same thing, He better Stop.That he can get badly hurt.....He can tear his ACL, Hurt his Head or Back...I'm sure thats possible, .. But stop and think about it, how Great shape he must be in. I know for a fact, that you can break your ankle, just getting out of Bed in the morning ! Football is a Rough and Violent Sport, It's a Billion dollar business, But People love to watch it, as I do. What about the head injuries ! I think we should be more concerned with that issue. So Giant Fans Enjoy the Win ! We don't get enough of them ! Did this Post put you to Sleep ? As it did me ! All I have to say is! >>>>There’s always somebody saying Wilson can’t do it, and those people have to be ignored.

Amazing game from the rookie, but we all know the saints have a horrendous defense. Can he continue the production against more stout teams like Baltimore and Atlanta? I believe he can, (not like today's insane numbers, obviously) or at least put defenses on notice, maybe open things up in the passing game. Thoughts?

From a Special Teams stand point yes, we have already seen his speed, explosiveness, and burst of what is capable of doing for much of the season. From a Running Back stand point I think we have to see more, im not saying he can't do it but we just have to see it consistently.

Toadofsteel
12-10-2012, 01:16 AM
I think he's here to stay now. It was about a 50/50 split of the carries overall (although it might have been more bradshaw before he left the field with whatever injury he may have had going on), I don't see why he wouldn't get a decent chunk of carries again. He's also proven he can take it up the middle for a gain despite his diminished stature...

More importantly, I'm seeing Wilson in on passing plays as well. He's more often running routes out of the backfield, but he's proving himself productive in that regard as well. Teams can no longer see him in the backfield and load up the box in response...

Any player could get hurt at any time yes, but to stop him from doing backflips during a celebration is not going to happen. If you stop him, then you need to stop Bradshaw from jumping in the air and spiking the ball. You also need to stop guys from dunking the ball over the foul post and also guys from leaping in the stands.. Point being, 1 in a million change he will hurt himself doing that, like any other celebration so its a moot point..

Was fantastic to see Wilson play like he did. The return team did fantastic, everyone made their blocks, no whiffs and the kid just explodes through the gaps. Awesome to see.

I would have loved to see him put his head down on the 3rd return and try and push straight through the punter instead of trying to squeeze past him. But Wilson probably through he had a shot to beat him with pure speed again.

Great performance against a dangerous Saints team.

But the play that Manning enjoyed seeing the most was one that most didn't even notice.
"I said to him, 'Your best play was picking up that three-safety blitz on a play-action,'" Manning said.
Of all the things Wilson did on his record-breaking coming-out party, the rookie may be most proud of that.

this is a tidbit from an article on espn.com....eli referring to wilson's pick up of the blitz.

actually , he plays every game.....and tonight wasn't his 1st touchdown.
and i have always been against players acting like a fool after scoring a touchdown.
i have posted about it before.....just because its a NY Giant doing it doesn't change my opinion.Yeah cause you wouldn't celebrate a touchdown in front of 80,000 people...come on man.

I completley agree with this. What ever happened to just spiking the ball, ala Bradshaw.

When it gets to the point that your teamates have to wait and stay out of your way before they can congradulate you, so you can do your "trademark" touchdown move, it becomes weak in my opinion.

Well, with all due respect, that was the play that kept Manning from eating turf. I can see why #10 would be most happy with THAT play.

A good play, I'm sure (although I don't recall it). But not his best of the night.

TarheelKen
12-10-2012, 02:02 PM
Not if the coaching staff nails his backside to the bench again. He's going to have to play more and receive a reasonable number of touches, both of which, I think, he's earned. (And, by "reasonable number of touches" I mean close to 50% of them if Bradshaw is healthy. If Bradshaw isn't healthy, then he needs to carry the load.)

I've rewatched that quite a few times and all I can look at is when he hits about the 11 yard line, the ridiculous - RIDICULOUS - acceleration that he just kicked on... "turbo" is actually a very good name for him.

dave56dj
12-10-2012, 03:47 PM
Its not far away from the play at all - in fact it was pretty close - Tryon is inches away from getting called and even looks up at the refs immediately to see if they called it. Close to hitting his shoulder on the side close to a block in the back - he got the call - i'll take it.

It seemed to get away from him for a little while... almost to where he was being too patient. He definitely looked, saw an opening and flew, no overthinking.

It didnt hurt that he could field it at the 3 instead of halfway into the endzone too.

I just picked him up during that insane performance, but my playoffs starts next week and I'm not sure if I should start him. I will monitor AB's status this week and see what the coaches say about the the share of carries.

I got Spiller (who will now see more carries because Fred Jackson is out for the year) and then I got to choose between Wilson/Sproles

I'm gonna give coach some slack here. I don't think it was that one fumble way back when keeping DW off the field. Running backs need to block first in our offense and they weren't about to put him in if they had any concerns about this part of his game. i think it's great he's coming on at the end of the season - opponents don't have much film on him so it's a nice little surprise for everyone!

GO GIANTS!!!!
I agree...I love how he's coming onto the scene now of all times. Right before the playoffs. Teams don't really have any tape on this guy or know much about him, he's basically done nothing but returns all year. I hope he's our playoff secret weapon.

How can he be labeled as a bust when he gets no carries? I already knew what he was capable of, yet he was in TC's doghouse all season until now. TC must be kicking himself.

This is what I was saying all along. Guy never got his chance until the Saints game.

Also, that studying with Hynocerous about pass protection paid off. He actually did hold his own when he had a blocking assignment. Not anywhere near Bradshaw's levels, but now defenses can't just load up the box whenever Wilson is on the field... they have to respect the pass.

I Like Wilson's goals ! ......................
.• No fumbles
• Gain 5 yards per carry
• Score at least 10 touchdowns
• Allow no sacks on his behalf
• Have at least one play of 20 yards or more per game
• Rush for 100 yards in at least six games

Now can the G-Men help him achieve these goals ?
