Excerpt: "The incredible season New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) rookie running back David Wilson (http://www.giants101.com/tag/david-wilson/) had continued to receive its due recognition on Saturday as the NFL announced first and second-team AP All Pros (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000125147/article/allpro-adrian-peterson-jj-watt-headline-teams?campaign=Twitter_atl_rosenthal). Wilson, who set a franchise record with 1,533 kick return yards, was named a second-team All Pro at kick returner. Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones (http://www.giants101.com/tag/jacoby-jones/) was named first-team All Pro.

Jones led the way with an incredible 37 1/2 votes, while Wilson tallied three. Buffalo Bills' Leodis McKelvin (2 1/2), Seattle Seahawks' Leon Washington (2), Tennessee Titans' (and former Giant) Darius Reynaud (2), Green Bay Packers' Randall Cobb (1), Miami Dolphins' Marcus Thigpen (1) and Cleveland Browns' Josh Cribbs (1) all also received votes."

Now let's see what he can do out of the backfield, with a year's experience in him. I hope he spends some time with Hynoski during the offseason learning how to block...

You know, if Brown comes back completely healed, having Wilson, Brown, and Hynoski available should make our running game significantly better IF we address the right side of the line. We do have Locklear if he recovers from his injury. Just how much of an improvement over Diehl is that though?

We do have Locklear if he recovers from his injury. Just how much of an improvement over Diehl is that though?We need 2 or 3 upgrades on our depth as well on the OL plus the left side is pretty ordinary by NFL standards. lol, you could add the "center of our line" to the list of ordinary things about our OL. Only Snee is above average and he is now in the "aging" category.

I think you misunderstood me,,,,we used him very sparingly most of the season,,,mostly on kick returns,,imagine if he would have been fully integrated,,make sense now?

I would like to see the front office place a premium on the OL. I'm sick of seeing the Giants drafting linemen in the 4,5, and 6 rounds. They have the skill position players on offense already. Build the line and get a better run attack which will lead to better play action.
