  • David Wilson problem

    I just hope Tom didn't wreck this kids' confidence. Paul Westhead once said you can stop the bleeding, but you might kill the patient. another carry last night, even just one catch out of the backfield, would've been good for him. It's not like we were humming along on offense anyway. Tom knows waaaaay more about this than I do, so hopefully he gives him the Tiki fumble tutorial and all is well from here, because Wilson's ability can mask a lot of the O line issues just on sheer speed and athleticism. We're gonna need him

      It looked like Wilson was harder on himself than Coughlin, the kid looked like he was about to have a breakdown on the sideline last night. He'll be fine, we'll see something from him against Tampa

        It's not like he didn't touch the ball again. He had a kick return after at the very least, so there's the one touch you wanted. He's cured!!!

          If his confidence is wrecked by being benched, then I'm glad he was benched...

            This.

            If he's that weak emotionally, he'll never survive prime time. While I would have liked to see him get some more carries and for the same reason, I'm wondering if his little melt down wasn't part of the reason he didn't get another shot. When Tiki fumbled everywhere, TC went right back to him time and again.

              The kids in the NFL, it's way past the time where the head coach is going to make decisions based on not hurting an individuals feelings. Our coaches are always going to do whats best for the team at any time in the game. They're not going to put someone in just to "build his confidence".

              Seriously.

                  I don't necessarily think he's fragile it seems more like he's upset with himself and that he fumbled in his first NFL game. We shouldn't read into it to much, if he wasn't ready he wouldn't have been put back in to receive kick offs.

                      The fact that he cried like a little boy is telling. It will be vary hard to trust him again. It's time to move him down the depth chart and get a man backing up Bradshaw.....not a boy.

                        I agree that he should have gotten more touches after that fumble.That's how you develop trust in a player is by letting them redeem themselves right away after a mistake. IMO, you don't let them rot on the bench to dwell on it for the rest of the game. When I first got into the navy, my supervisor screamed at me and I was pretty down. I had messed up on a project. The very next day, he gave me the same job and I took care of business.

                          ahh....you are over reacting. The kid, IMO, will be fine. He had an emotional moment. Big deal. Its done and over with.
                          However.....if he really cant take this then he wont be around in the NFL for long.

                            He was put back in to return a kick, that would have provided whatever long term confidence boost Wilson may have needed. To flip this conversation onto its head, let's say TC decided to leave Wilson in, or had to leave him in and two plays later he lost the ball again? TC would once again be the old guy who needs to go.

                              Based on his reaction to the first fumble, I think Wilson would have jumped off the GWB.
