  • Wilson in our offense

    Gilbride should draw up some screens, get Wilson the ball in space. He's said to be a good receiver out of the backfield, and has the speed and power to really hurt teams in the open field. It may get the run game a bit of a spark too when defenses have another thing to think about.

    I can't argue with this at all but I guess he's still in the doghouse but I think we are going to see him a lot against the Browns this Sunday....

      im hoping the same thing! Wilson had that fumble in game 1, TC didnt like that especially after giving him an opportunity to show up! but hes a rookie!

      i imagine Gilbride will eventually design something for him! he can be dangerous for us!

      in a coupla games hopefully we can bump this thread with nothing but positive comments about his play!

        He dropped a pass Sunday but most importanttly he's behind Bradsahaw and Brown at the moment. He will get his chances. Coughlin has been very complimentary of Wilson's kick returns and his efforts at practice

          He has the potential to break one everytime he touches the ball
          Football has been very, very good to us.
          After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
          But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

          # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

          1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
          2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
          3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
          4-New York Giants!!!
          5-NE
          Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

              They've given him that screen where he lines up out wide. They ran it in pre-season and against Tampa, if I remember correctly.
              There was also that two-back shotgun form they tried using him in on Sunday.

              It's clear that they're trying to get him involved but it looks like he'll be phased in over a large amount of time. Frustrating, but fairly typical of the team where rookies are concerned.

              Perhaps his performance on the return unit will speed up the process somewhat?

                Indeed, passes in the Flat, Check Downs Etc,

                though, utilizing him as a True Running Back would also be superior,

                giving him one swing toss, a game is not only predictable, it's not utilizing him,


                don't forget he had the most yards after Contact, more than Trent Richardson, he has power speed and elusiveness, a Cut Back type back, with power,

                  Wilson's usage on returns last sunday was primarily to test him to see if he could hold onto the ball. He passed with flying colors. I expect to see him in the backfield more often going forward.

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

                    I agree that they wanted to test him but the fact that they haven't utilized a weapon of his caliber (1st round draft pick) except for kick off returns, makes me want to puke. Add in the fact that this team has struggled in the run game and this kid has been riding the pine makes me want to punch a nun who is helping an old lady across the street.

                      I don't necessarily like it either, but nothing gets you in TC's doghouse quite like fumbling the football. He's letting Wilson get more of a chance than Scott did to redeem himself (he IS a first round pick after all), but overall TC wants to make sure you won't fumble before you see a carry...

                        If we are going to rush the ball on 3rd and short i'd like to see wilson get a touch or two and see what he can get.. He's so quick and not easy to bring down. All he would need is just a little hole to explode through. I may be wrong statistically, but over the years Bradshaw from what I can recollect has been anything but desireable to have try to pick up any amount of yards on 3rd and short. Wilson, could add a whole new collection for plays on 3rd and short. They can use this kid in so many ways, i'm waiting for him to prove himself to his coaches, becuase when he does he will be a force to other defenses. it's just going to take some time.

                          When he has been on the field to run the ball it's just been too obvious, the opposing team gets a good push and stops him in the back field and then off the field he goes again! I feel bad for him. Maybe KG should dial up a PA pass with him out there next time.

                            i am a huge TC guy. but how he's handled Wilson...I dont agree with it. week 1, early in the game, we went to him. that leads me to believe that he was part of the plans early. he was gonna be used as a legit nfl back would.
                            but bc of one fumble (and admittedly what I dont see at practices) Wilson just gets scraped from the gameplan completely and he can't even get carries?

                            enough of this bs tom foolery with him, PA shovel pass in tight traffic at the LOS? yeah that's much simpler than letting him run a sweep or off tackle run...the other 1rst round backs r getting feature back carries, hell even lamar miller, miami's late rd draft pick has gotten a ton of carries and looked great...u cant tell me all these other rookie rb's like alfred smith have any less responsibility when having to pass protect...

                            we can all see that wilson could be taken over games right now as is, that first half vs chicago starters was damn impressive. especially bc the gameplans on both teams side of the ball were generic and a lot of what wilson was doing was just using his elite agility/speed/quickness/athleticism to blow by people purely on talent, not play design...

                            sorry for the rant but i hate how wilson went from #2 back, to essentially not even a RB but a KO Returner, all bc he fumbled once...

                              they were gonna trust wilson with a lot of responsibilities (pass protection included) as the #2 back. They obviusly trusted him to do it if they had him as the #2 opening week (which was earlier than alot of us, even he expected). so he's not getting carries solely bc of that fumble imho. see where im coming from?
