  • Is it right to sit a rookie RB because he fumbled?

    My friend was giving me updates on the game because I was at work. He texted me saying Wilson had fumbled. And I texted back, "now watch TC bench him for the rest of the game." And I was right.

    Rookies will be rookies, and mistakes will happen. But imo, benching a rookie RB because he fumbled does more harm than good. We're never going to develop our running backs if they are on the bench. TC did the same thing to Scott last year.

    I understand we have to win games, and fumbling the ball doesn't help at all. But how else will he learn? If Bradshaw fumbles he isn't benched right? Then why does he do it to rookies?

    this isn't a classroom. It isn't about teaching at that point, its about doing whats best for the team. Wilson was crying for christ sakes (i like the passion) but still, you don't throw that guy back in the game. hes not mentally ready

      I think you should let him calm down and get his head back into the game. Cowboys were flying all over the field in the second half so no time to deal with rookies would be my guess.

        No, it's not right, nor is a fair punishment or goodway to learn. dYou have to "play to win", not "not to lose". Wilson is too big a potential weapon. He will not learn standing on the sidelines, nor will his confidence be restored. Play the rook and let him grow. Our offense needs his speed and dynamics!

          Because when rookies make a mistake, they'll try to do too much and make even more mistakes, something to the effect of Kyle Williams.

          The game also dictated the benching of Wilson as Giants were playing catch up and running game was pretty much out the window.

          Expect Wilson to get a heavy dose in the next game. Move on.

            This isn't a classrom. It isn't about teaching at that point.....you gotta put him in the game instead of teaching him a lesson, because we need to have our best players on the field. Wilson is a big part of the offense and we needed him out there.
            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

              IF the kid cried, so what, I think it's a great thing....it shows emotion. Coughlin will bottle that kids emotion and show him how to empty it on the field. That kid will be a star for us. You watch....Bradshaw and Wilson will be national names before our bye week.

                The outcome of the game is more imporant than hurting a players feelings. He is a big boy now, hold on to the god damn ball. He wasn't even hit hard, he was holding the ball way too loose. Maybe next time he will think twice and really hold the ball tight.

                  i said i like the passion, but if u think ti shows he was mentally strong or ready i would say it showed the complete opposite.

                    i don't agree with benching a player for fumbling, any player any team,


                    Stubbornness from any Coach is a pathway to defeat

                      its just TC method. You may disagree or not. Either way the coaches know this kid id a talent. One of his goals is not to fumble so there you go.
                      He will see plenty of carries......no worries there.

                        I think they should've put him back out there. That kid is a playmaker... Adrien Peterson fumbles but he keeps playing. On another note... The Vikings haven't won a Superbowl neither. I still think they should've played but if the benching worked for Cruz last year, maybe it''ll work for Wilson.

                          I'm with you as always. Let him learn on the practice field not in a game where there was zero running room anyways against an arch division rival who was treating a week 1 game like their Super Bowl.

                            You are wrong about Bradshaw. He was benched and for that period of time Jacobs carried the load. TC is not picking on players. Fumbles, interceptions, are negative game changers. The "dog house", while it may seem harsh to some, is relatively short lived and is part of the player development philosophy in this organization. Players KNOW what happens when they put the ball on the ground and we lose possession.

                              oh god burner, don't start again

                              is this where we que Reese for not trading for Kolb?

                              U really just compared Wilson to the best back in the game when healthy. Stop it.

                              AP also never came off the field and emotional wreck after he fumbles
