    It's just frustrating. They drafted a kick returner in the 1st round? I just want to see this guy play!
    He happens to excel at it. Until they feel he's ready for prime time on offense, better to have him making positive contributions on STs than being inactive.

      Also true. It's like seeing a glimpse of what could be on offense though.
      At least he's eliminated one of the team's weaknesses. Been searching for a decent returner since Hixon stopped doing it.

        First, we know TC has confidence in him as a returner or he'd not be back there. I think we are now 50 - 8 when we win the turnover battle so we can understand why the coaches want to be sure Wilson can control the ball. We don't see him at practice although TC has said he practices hard. I always defer to the coaching staff on when a rookie is ready. My sense is it won't be long.

          Obviously not.

            The biggest hinderance to Wilson getting more playing time is his ability to block for Eli. We all know how TC and Gilbride puts that as a priority for RBs. Maybe he hasn't shown the ability to do that enough.

              I agree with this. When he's in, the D knows the play is for him. Why bother?

                This kid gets his act together and Bradshaw will be riding the pines, I love Bradshaw but seriously can't wait for that to happen.
