Hopefully he gently tosses the ball a few feet so it doesn't crush his foot, then get carried to the sideline, wouldn't want him to trip or anything.

considering the condition of Bradshaw's feet , i think that that's also a stupid maneuver.

That's good news. That celebration is an injury waiting to happen.

I like AB's celebration the most -- jump in the air with an emphatic spiking of the ball, usually while he's usually doing a 180 in the air.

+1 A sign of maturity for the young man

It seems innocent enough, but you know one day he'll try to do it when he's tired, or the turf is slippery, or there's debris on the field thrown from a fan.

I don't care if he does the Macerena or anything else that looks dumb. . .just not playing with the club's money on something like this.

I wonder if that was his idea, or if the coaches spoke with him this week. Either way, it sounds like his head is in the right place.

NY Giants are flipping out over David Wilson’s touchdown celebration ... rookie says everyone needs to ‘relax’
Tom Coughlin didn't seem relaxed when he was asked about Wilson's flips at his Wednesday press conference.
Asked if he had a problem with the celebration, Coughlin said 'Next question.'

Great to hear!

Would very hate to see Wilson injured over a celebration

I think the new celebration will be JPP and Wilson running toward each other and then at the last minute both flip and give each other high fives in mid flip and then once again upon landing.

JPP does frontflips, Wilson does backflips, if they were to do them both in the same endzone, in celebration of the same touchdown, the world would implode. It's like dividing by zero, or crossing the streams. Bad news.

Hey, a first time poster here and also a huge David Wilson fan from Virginia Tech (class of 1974 alum). David is a Great kid who is hyperactive (in case you have not noticed ;>). Watch him after his longer TD runs and he sorts of gallops to a stop like a horse would after finishing a huge stakes race. David has the competitive spirit of a warrior. Ever since he was a toddler he had more energy than he could exhaust and, as hard as it may seem to believe, I think he is capable of returning kicks and carrying a 20 plus carry load in the NFL. His endurance level is off the charts.

OK Giant fans, get ready for the David Wilson experience!! He may hit the wrong holes occasionally but you will never see him get lazy or not give it 100%. Did you notice how he sprung up like a wobble doll when Fletcher, the Redskin Captain, layed the wood to him on that sideline hit? He is tough, quick, fast and once he learns the finer points of being patient and waiting for his blockers he will be hell to deal with for opponent defenses.

I noticed and am happy he hasn't tried any of that reverse field ala 2011 Sugar Bowl stuff lol.


Also, welcome brother!

I agree...it's become way too pretentious. IMO, he should only resort to pulling it out on occasion...kind of like the way Aaron Rodgers does now with "the belt" celebration.

Normally I'd be all for Wilson doing a backflip especially given his experience with said maneuver. However, he needs to realize that he's pretty much our SOLE tailback now. If Bradshaw or Brown were still healthy I'd have less of a problem with it...

It really never bothered me, but I can certainly understand the concern. Anyone who compares it to " simply jumping" have obviously never been graced with ....
