    I understand the frustration with wanting to get Wilson on the field... I would love to see more of him too, but one thing Coughlin does well is to make sure his young guys are ready before putting them on the field. He is bringing him along slowly, just as he has done so many times before with various players. It works, and this is one case where I don't question it. Yes, I want to see more Wilson, but not at the expense of going through the growing pains that all rookies go through. AB has proven he is more than capable of handling the majority of the load while Wilson is groomed for what is most likely going to be the starting role. Should AB struggle, we can all feel fairly confident in Wilson being able to come in and contribute.
    Wilson has been reported to be working very hard at practice and it's showing. He's not been relegated to bench warming as he's the undisputed kick returner. They are developing him as is there habit. Had Brown not had such a stellar start to the season we may have seen Wilson a abit more. But he's better off getting his reads and blocking down before he has to be thrown into the game unprepared. He will continue top get touches and the best thing he can do is what he did last Sunday.

      Everyone is acting like the niners have some sort of defense that is rookie proof. Somehow Wilson against the niners defense = utter disaster?? C'mon guys lets be serious with ourselves. Rookie or not (let alone A FIRST ROUNDER) everyone in this league is a professional and anything can happen on any given Sunday. I would NOT be surprised if we ran for over 96 yards. not one bit

        Did the Germans hesitate during WWII? No

        Did Michael Scott give up all hope for Holly because of A.J? No

        Did Emeral Lagassi stop making food because his fat cousin told him it taste like ****? No


        Should the Giants not run Wilson just because the niners have a 'good' defense? NO

That said the kid has shown (ON HIS FIRST REGULAR HAND OFF - everything else was a pitch - one delay) that he can absolutely be electric and he has to get touches. No problem with tom bringing him in slowly after the fumble - lesson learned hopefully. Yes the niners are stout and yes every yard is earned - but thats no reason to not get a playmaker the ball. He may not have his best say but you gotta stick with the run and usually a hole or two breaks at some point. Lets hope 22 is in one at some point - cause the next thing you'll see is a saftey turning his head to see 22 on a back.
          ya know what, he may even be more effective as a rb vs SF than bradshaw in the aspect that SF DL and LBs shed blocks and get into gaps so quickly that having a RB who can burst thru a crack in the line in the blink of an eye may be better bc it would mean the OL doesnt have to sustain their blocks as long...just throwing that out there.

          and to the post abut ppl thinking SF's D is "rookie-proof" and that bc wilson is a rookie he shouldnt be featured...its not that at all, its bc Wilson may have ball handling issues and SF is NASTY at trying to cause fumbles...thats it. and it could hurt his maturation if he plays and has a couple of fumbles that cost us a game...

              You'd think that would have ended this debate. Nope. People are in love with their own opinions....even in the face of great logic.
              I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                thats just the thing. Wilson is to new and young to be intimidated by them. He doesn't know any better. He doesn't know he not supposed to be able to go out there and tear off long 50/60 yard TDs against that defense
                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!!!

                  I did not mean to suggest he was relegated to the bench.... "They are developing him as is there habit"... that's exactly what I was saying.
                  My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

                    That wasn't really directed at you, I got carried away in the woosh of negativity

                        Theres a difference between a player not being a good blocker or RB and a player who hasnt been given the opportunity to showcase if he is or not. Wilson took a run to the house (like he did during preseason) and that still didnt warrant him to receive another carry after it. It has to be frustrating and disheartening for the premise to be put in place that his lack of opportunities stems from a fumble in game 1 and that he needed to work into good graces. Meanwhile the #1 RB prior to this game was performing horribly all season and then starts the game off with a fumble yet Coughlin goes right back to him. It's almost like the rules don't apply to everyone and even though Wilson was tearing it up with the kick returns he wasnt given any other opportunities due to one simple mistake in his first game.

                        It's this kind of over the top conservative philosophy with rookies that makes me think that Coughlin wouldnt even be playing a rookie Adrian Peterson if we had him. If you're going to make a huge stink over the fumble like he did you need to apply that fairly to others especially those who were not performing up to the standards. It's funny though, TC sticks with the guy who fumbles and that guy gets a 200 yard game. Makes you wonder what Wilson couldve done had he been stuck with and not bailed out on.
                        Completely wrong. Rookies and vets do not get the same rules. Rookie has to earn trust, the vet has it already. AB's fumble this week was a weird play where Snee smashed into him right on the ball. He didn't get stripped. And as far as the blocking. Maybe he has had the chance to show his skills in practic and hasn't done a good job. Don't worry you can save your Wilson jersey, it will be his job soon.

                          Yeppers.......I could have busted a few dandy runs with the line we had back then. But probably not now because I'm always wasted all the time. I AM still pretty spry on my feet, though.

                            I lieu of Wilson madness on these boards, AB is still one heck of running back. Its sad to see his great blue journey come to an end. But the time is near. A changing of the guards looms soon in the wind.
