    We have lost key players all season. If Prince can't go, Rolle will likely be asked to play corner. But as frightening as that may sound, we also have Jacquian Williams, Stevie Brown and Will Hill back on the field now. We are accustomed to adapting.
    Rather have hill or hosely play cb. Leave Rolle alone, hasnt had many miscues lately. Williams back is huge.

          I love Bradshaw. But what I've been saying the last few seasons is that we HAVE to split the carries more. His body can't take carrying the load anymore. If we would split carries then he would stay fresher and he could go all out towards the end of the season/playoffs.

            Wilson's been practicing all year and he's been doing well with the opportunities he's been given. I'm confident he can do the job. And when he needs a breather, no reason Lumpkin or Torrain can't push the pile for a few plays. They've had a couple weeks to learn and this week they know they will be called upon.

              Agreed, Lumpkin has taken a few snaps even though he hasn't touched the ball. Learning the where's and when's is critical.

                  A sprained knee usually knocks a player out anywhere from 1-3 games.

                  I have no clue how quickly they expect him to rebound from that.

                    I agree.....he might still make some mistakes, but at some point you've got to take the ****ing training wheels off. Last week proved to me that the kid has some serious talent.

AB may not be the best back in the league but he runs hard and has had a very productive year. Losing your # 1 & 2 RB's in three weeks would be tough to overcome. I think it could be a bit much for Wilson to manage as his first game as the FT RB - loud stadium, playoffs ,good defense...
                      David Wilson is by far the most talented RB on the team. There's a reason Bradshaw was a 7th rounder. He had average talent but was a hard worker and always gives it his all. David Wilson is an elite talent and if he were to start against the Falcons I have no doubt he will shred their 23rd ranked rush defense.

                      He averaged 9.8 ypc against the starting chicago D in the preseason. I think he'll be just fine.

                          He went to a smaller-sized school and had character issues. Plenty of teams kicked themselves for not taking a chance on him. He's not elite by any measure, but to say he's an "average talent" is severely underselling what he's brought to the table in his career up to this point.

                            +1

                            David Wilson should have the Falcons fans much more worried than Giants fans.

                              Oh no I'm definitely not saying he's an average talent NOW, he's clearly an above average nfl starter, but he doesn't have the elite mensurables that Wilson has.

                                after this year he'll probably be way below average, we'll probably have to draft another RB (backup, depth, etc) after next year.
