    He also needs to realize that sometime a touchback is the best option. It seems to me that since it's become clear that most of his on-field time will come as a returner for the time being he is now trying to break every single kick return for a TD.

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 they need to give him a chance to take advantage.
      And not pull him for 10 games if he fumbles.
      Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

        I don't know, that's a good kind of confidence to have.

          Not when it's clear you should just take a knee and put your team on the 20 as opposed to have to break 8 tackles and run sideline to sideline just to get to the 21 yard line..

            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,
            You are assuming the reason why he is not in there is his pass protection prowess. I think it is more than that. What Ingram said was just coach speak for he needs to do everything an NFL RB needs to do. Ingram did not single out just Wilson's pass protection as being the main problem. I think the coaches are concerned about his mental approach to the game. I believe they feel he is not yet mentally ready to handle more opportunities at RB. If that's the case then the coaches are doing the right thing with him.

              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.
              I can't believe I actually agree with you.
              Engage brain before speaking.

                where did he say anything wrong? " I don't know. Like I said, he knows how to evaluate and (Ingram) knows how to do his job. That's not my area. I'm the player, he's the coach, and I still got learning to do and growing to do as a player." sounds pretty humble to me

                yea he said he hasn't been given an opportunity to show what he can do in pass protection, he's speaking the truth. Anyone that watches the games on sunday can see that. My thinking behind this is that they are grooming him and Andre to take over for Bradshaw next season.

                  This whole "he doesnt know his blocking assignmesnts" story is being overblown by the coaching staff. Let him and Brown loose and get the running game going. Take some pressure off Eli and the WRs.

                    No it is being overblown by posts on this board like this and the media. Nothing Ingram and Gilbride said when asked about Wilson's playing time pointed directly to pass protection. That was just ONE of a multitude of things they mentioned as being part of Wilson's learning curve. People really need to reread the articles posted about this subject already. It is most likely, as I said in another reply earlier, the articles quoting Ingram and Gilbride is just coach speak and the more likely reasoning is they are concerned with Wilson's mental approach which they cannot come out and say to the media. They said he needs to be well-rounded in all areas of the position not just that he has to be a better blocker.

                      Tom Coughlin is not going to give a RB a significant role if he is not positive that that person is capable of protecting our franchise QB adequately. Right or wrong, agree or disagree that is how it is and always has been.

                        I am taking Wilson's side, if that's what you can even call it. You really don't know what you have until you try it out. Why draft him in the first round if he is going to ride pine. Why not use him? Its not like Bradshaw is Adrian Peterson or anything

                          If he knew that would be the outcome, I'm sure he would do as you suggest.

                                I'm saying it's easy to say he's not going to get past the 20 when he didn't. He thinks, and I support his thinking, he can break one on every return. I find it interesting that there are a lot of fans clamoring for him to be given an opportunity on offense and here we are talking about his backing down on special teams. If he doesn't try, it's never going to happen.
