  • Giants' David Wilson Responds To Coaches' Comments.....

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "Last week, Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and running backs coach Jerald Ingram summed up why David Wilson has been sparingly used at running back this season. And it all boiled down to one point: the first-round pick isn't a complete running back yet.

    Sure, Wilson is a great runner, as explosive as there is, they said. But he wasn't asked to be much more than a runner at Virginia Tech and as Ingram put it, 'at what cost is he explosive?'

    The coaches argued that the rookie still needs to improve in other aspects of being an NFL running back, most notably in pass protection, and a fumble on his second career carry against the Cowboys in the season opener certainly didn't help.

    But Wilson said he simply hasn't been given the opportunity to show that he can do everything that is asked of an NFL running back.

    "They say those statements, but I haven't put in a situation…to see if I could pick up a blitz," Wilson said today. "So I don't know if it's from my college film or what that comes from. But I'm just waiting for my opportunity to get out there."

    Wilson's been asked to pick up blitzes in practice and he said he hasn't had any problems." Read more...

      They should do play-action with Wilson on the field... since everyone is expecting a run everytime he gets on the field, EVERYONE would bite...

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

        something tells me that he probably shouldn't have said that stuff.
        due to the fact that I am from the Woodstock generation ...

          It doesn't change the team creating plays specifically for him. Hopefully they will get to put them into "play" on Sunday against the Packers

                If that's what he thinks, it doesn't sound good. He sees no need to improve so he will not improve. And if he's reading these boards, he's a getting a lot of support and confirmation that the problem is with the coaches and not with him. So why should he try to improve?

                He doesn't know where the coaches are getting their opinions? You have to be kidding. They see him every day in practice.

                Sounds like a big problem.

                  yeah , i keep forgetting that Bradshaw might not play ,
                  so maybe they are planning on using him a little more to spell Brown.
                  i hope so. i really miss that scat-back style that #21 had.
                  i'd like to see if this kid has that 'Stuff".

                    I Believe him, and it's sad they give him no opportunities,

                    many say 'Brown earned more carries' when has Wilson been given the chance? many say 'In Practice' okay, how many reps does Wilson get? how many chances does he get to pass protect as a 'Third String'? i would wager hardly any, if he has to run designed plays made for him,


                    regardless, brown was the only one that gave up a Sack against Carolina, if you say it's because Wilson dropped two passes? Brown has dropped a couple passes, if you say it's because Wilson fumbled Once, Brown Fumbled Twice in a preseason game, is it because brown gains positive yards on carries? sure, give Wilson 10 carries put him in non running plays and i would wager my savings he gains positive yardage,

                      Does the quote "He needs to grow up" ring a bell?

                        Uncharacteristically, Bradshaw practiced today. That's his first Monday practice in a while. So whatever the "battery of tests" revealed, he's now practicing with the team. What we need to see is if he gets to more than one day of practice. So, assuming he's not headed to IR, he will split carries with Brown on Sunday.

                          I don't read it that way at all. I think he's just frustrated because he's not getting on the field.
                          And the comments made by the Giants coaches are pure BS. If they didn't think he was ready then why was he clearly in the game plan week one until he fumbled.
                          To me this is just a stubborn coaching staff who benched the kid when he fumbled. And for the record, when you do that kind of thing to a player you get him worrying more about holding on to the ball then making plays. You can ruin a player's ability to excel when you punish him for fumbling with this kind of severity.
                          Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                            He probably should have not said that. He didn't say anything outrageous, but it's still going to come across as "well they don't play me enough to know", and people don't like that at***ude from rookies.

                            Something more along the lines of:
                            "I will continue to work 100% and hope I get more opportunities to prove myself"

                            Would have been best. Sure it's a complete PC generic response, but it would have worked much better for him IMO.

                              There are things we never see that go on in meetings and at practice. They have gone so far as to create plays just for him. I don't see it as them not wanting him on the field. I see it as his not doing whatever it is he needs to do to get out there. And it sounds a little like he is happy with the player he is.

                              When they put him in, he needs to take advantage as he has on kick returns.
