    RB Wilson's confidence growing

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...Uk7lYuMbkKnUyM

    Excerpt: "Running back David Wilson hasn’t seen too many chances in his rookie season, but that could all change tomorrow.

    With backup running back Andre Brown (concussion) listed out for Sunday’s game in San Francisco, Wilson will fill in behind Ahmad Bradshaw and hopes to build off his last carry, a 40-yard touchdown run against the Browns, which gave a peek at the potential of the Giants’ first-round pick.

    “Now I look at it like every two carries I got to score a touchdown,” Wilson said jokingly yesterday, after running for 44 yards on two carries in the 41-27 win over the Browns. “It does give me the confidence to go out there, with the touchdown, with the limited plays I had that game, I’m going to go out there and see what I can do with more carries, see if I can be as productive.”

    With Wilson’s speed and elusiveness, he already has been productive on special teams and is tied for the NFL lead with three kick returns of more than 40 yards, a role he will remain in tomorrow. On Thursday, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said the team is “trying to expand his role as fast as we can,” and this week Wilson said he received a heavy increase in offensive reps in practice."

    David Wilson's speed will be greatly needed against the 49ers. I would love to him run one or two for a TD.
    Wilson,Don't stop till you get there !

    The unspoken part of that quote

    ...he will be running our draw.....


    Which of course would work with an overly aggressive defense with no push up the middle.

    My biggest concern is his ability to read the defense and pass protect. I have visions of that dallas FB missing Boley on a blitz and Romo going down for the year in 2010.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the San Fran game will be a poor litmus test of Wilson's abilities. It won't matter who we have in the backfield. We win with the pass in this game. That said maybe Wilson can score on a broken play with his game breaking speed. One mistake and he's gone.

    I don't expect much from the run game in this one. If I'm wrong then I know that our run game is good this year and the past few games were not a fluke.

    yes Brown has been ruled out for this game and didn't even make the trip to SF. Neither did Bernard or Phillips

    One thing we can be sure of, after the 40 yard run last week he is going to draw some attention from the defense when he is on the field. Even without running he will help to dictate to the defense and possibly force them to bring a safety up to help against the run. The first play he is in should be a play action and you could end up with a big play to Nicks or Cruz. Hopefully after that they are forced to play him a bit more honest and it opens up a big run.

    He may not get a lot of time, but when he is on the field I will be looking for big plays because he creates a whole new dimension in this offense.

    RB Wilson's confidence growing

    Excerpt: "Giants rookie running back David Wilson set the bar pretty high for himself last week.

    “Now, I look at it as like every two carries I gotta score a touchdown,” said Wilson, who scored for the first time as a pro on a 40-yard run late in the fourth quarter of his team’s 41-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

    Wilson was joking.

    But seriously ...

    “It does give me confidence to go out there and score a touchdown with the limited plays I had that game,” he said. “Now, I’m hoping to go out there and see what I can do with more carries.” Read more...
