  • Why no Wilson in garbage time?

    I was wondering why da'rell scott was in the game late and Wilson was not getting the reps? Is he still in tc's doghouse?

    Wilson returned kicks, Scott needed some playing time. Don't read too much into it.

      i was thinking that ... let him get some confidence there, but then again Scott had not even been active the 1st couple weeks, so we threw him a bone ... i didnt have a big issue with that

          I think TC wants him to remember how important not turning over the football is. TC is an old pro. He'll have plenty of time to get experience in a 16 game season.
          Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

            This team "develops" its players and they are serious about it. Far more can be lost if they push a guy onto the field, Tryon for example, before he's ready. Tryon is the LAST CB on the roster and he's been placed into an impossible situation for which he has been soundly criticized. No one cares about Tryon's potential and he will be thought of as a bust until he develops into the player they believe he can become.

              This is key to a running back's future. Yo can bet that at the end of the game TC thought "hey, no fumbles form the backfield."

                The same reason Eli wasn't playing in garbage time ... saving the potential starters and checking out the bench players.

                  Wasn't Bradshaw basically a kick returner for most of his rookie year?

                  I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                    Wilson should have been given som reps at the end. In the very least to give the kid a shot at redeeming himself from his mistakes.

                      if you heard the post interview with Brown, he said it best:


                      "keeping your protections and assignments straight. If you can't pass block as a RB on this team, you won't get on the field........."

                      i said it at the beginning of the year. Coughlin places WAAAAY more priority on the health and protection of his QBs than he does on running yards gained.

                      As long as he's got RBs that can pick up a blitz, there's little reason in his mind to risk Eli (or Carr) by getting someone to learn the ropes at the expense of our QBs health.

                      Every back we've had has spent time developing slower than we all think they should (Bradshaw, Jacobs, Scott, Wilson), and its based on understanding pass protection responsibilities.

                      analysts say it all the time, as a RB if you can catch the ball and pass block, you'll have a job somewhere in the NFL.

                            Andre Brown happened... Wilson is now the #3 back. And they might be willing to shop Scott for a pick now so they are giving him a chance to shine to improve his value.
                            WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                              Very nice summary of what it takes to be a running back for NYG.....the only thing about this is.. this does not explain why Wilson was not in there at the end when all we are doing is running the ball to run clock out....Why not give Wilson a couple of carries?
