  • 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...

I don't think there is that much difference between Wilson, Brown and Bradshaw. None of them will do much unless the OL improves its play. Of course, that is much harder to do than just changing RBs and such thoughts don't allow us to dream of magical solutions in our fantasies of how we would do a much better job of coaching the team.
    Bingo....surprised no one else is mentioning this....It was clearer than ever against the Bengals. None of the RB's could get anywhere past the line of scrimmage, this o-line was collapsing and getting thrown around like ragdolls.

    I'm not going to mention any names because this entire team played like crap, but this o-line needs some Major help to turn things around going forward; or else we're getting no rush yards, 3rd and longs, and Eli should get used to the taste of dirt.

    They're saving him for a secret weapon for the playoff run. Like they did with Bradshaw and Smith in '07.

    If nobody's seen him he will be harder to defend when the time comes.

    So let it be written, so let it be done.
    lmao love this.....I wish we were that clever

    I'll buy into this, might as well, it brings some joy and fantasy in my life....let' see what happens

Our QB maybe old school too but the rest of the "skill" positions isnt. Its waiting for him to do something to utilize their talents. Hes yet to do so in his NYG Career and now he has what could possibly be the most talented offense in the league and he doesnt even know how to intuitively get a run game going. Let me guess, its the draw play, thats how u get it goingcant wait for his firing in the offseason.
    Nobody is getting fired.

    by the way #5 was getting killed up until a few weeks ago.
    i guess after about 160 touches Martin leaned how to block and be NFL ready.
    in the meantime...they ran him anyway .
    Unfortunately, we can't compare Martin and Wilson......Martin is being given the opportunity to showcase his skills, and Wilson is being mothballed.

    The biggest difference between Martin and Wilson is that one player is trusted by his coaches, and the other is not.

    I know you asked someone else this question, however, I'm pretty sure Reese had Wilson graded higher than Martin.

    EDIT.....here it is.

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/09000...was-top-choice

    "There's been some conjecture that Tampa had moved up in front of us and took Martin," Reese told WFAN Radio on Tuesday. "That's not true ... Martin would not have been our pick."

    The Giants selected Virginia Tech running back David Wilson with the 32nd pick, one choice after the Bucs took Martin, leading analysts to speculate that Tampa Bay jumped in front to nab the player New York really wanted.

    "First of all, (Wilson) was the highest player on our board at the time that we picked," Reese said. "That was an easy pick for us. It was a value and a need pick for us, we thought."

    Reese said Martin was considered for their first-round pick but eventually was rated lower than a few other players, including Wilson.

Gilbride has done an absoloutely disgusting job integrating him into the offense.

    Interesting thing about your link......that was an obvious running down (34-20, 6 minutes in the game)......Giants line up with Hynoski, give the ball to Wilson (which is what the defense was fully expecting), and bang, he takes it 40+ yards to the house.....because he's so damn fast he just blew past the last two defenders who had a shot at him....both of whom were unblocked.



    Again.....our best running play of the season was a telegraphed running play. So, that sort of shoots the "we can't telegraph our play by putting Wilson in" argument in the ***.

    I assume when Doug Martin is in the backfield, they are guessing "run" as well.
    Also, Who was in making a great block????? LOCKLEAR!!!!!!

    Dude, even the camera man would bite. thats how OBVIOUS it is when he gets in there. They know 90% of the time, hes in there for one reason, Flanker, HB counter or stretch. WHICH MEANS ITS A RUN TO THE OUTSIDE. Whats funny is hes projected as an inside runner, just as much as an outside runner. His ability to stay on his feet after contact is pretty impressive.

    THE FACT IS THIS TEAM WOULDNT KNOW HOW TO USE ANY TALENT LET ALONE HIS TALENT.

    Its not just a TC thing, KG sure as hell doesnt know how to use him. KG is busy using the same playbook from madden 99

    I believe the Giants wanted Martin regardless of what Reese says, Martin was clearly the better RB and more NFL ready and they wanted a RB who could contribute right away after this team was last in rushing last year, unfortunately he was already taken and they had to go with the next best RB available which was Wilson.
