  • Giants' David Wilson May Be Too Valuable To Keep Flipping Around The End Zone

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...ay_be_too.html

    Excerpt: "The Giants’ first-round draft pick created a stir Sunday afternoon with his three-touchdown performance in the 52-27 victory against the Saints, one on a kickoff return and two rushing. What followed — back-flips in the end zone, one to celebrate each score — created another kind of a stir.

    The concern from Wilson’s teammates and bosses is understandable, particularly with starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw’s status for Sunday’s game in Atlanta very much in question, after he suffered a sprained left knee against the Saints. Wilson may need to step in as the starter, and carry his largest rushing load of the season, and the Giants can’t afford a needless injury.

    Wilson shrugged. He’s been flipping since he was a toddler growing up in southern Virginia, and he claims he’s never missed.

    “It’s a possibility they can go wrong, but for me, I’ve been doing ’em since I was three years old,” Wilson said. “It’s like easy, it’s almost like running, for me to jump and turn backwards. I’ve been doing it for a while, so I think people can relax a little.”

    This is what comes with Wilson’s newfound status as a key part of the Giants offense. In the 12 previous games, Wilson had only cause to flip once, late in a victory against the Browns. On Sunday, he did it three times. As Tuck extolled, “without him, we don’t win that game on Sunday, hands down.”

    But Tuck added, “We have to try our best now to keep his head the same size it is right now.”

    It’s part of what Wilson called a “dramatic change” from Week 1, when he was benched for fumbling. Just a few weeks ago, he was the third running back on the Giants roster. But Andre Brown broke his fibula, and now Bradshaw suffered the knee injury, on top of the bruised bone in his foot." Read more...

    I tend to agree with the team only becasue of the physicality of his celebration. We'll see if he's matured enough to see the wisdom of dialing it back for his and the team's benefit.

        I will say this. In the article I read on Giants 101, it didn't sound like DW plans on stopping it. If he continues to do it after veterans and a team captain tell him to stop, it will say a lot about his character, imo.

              I think that's what Reese meant when he said he'd be in his grill. Translates into I'm the guy who pays you.

                  I think it's overblown. It's not like he's doing something that he has never done before. It seems to come pretty natural to him. As long as he's scoring and we aren't getting blown out at the time, I have no problem with it.

                    I have a Great suggestion............No celebrations, from any Giants, Just when they score a TD, Let the Giant Organization, donate a $1000. to the players favorite charity ! This way everyone is Happy....This will Also help the players image.

                      It's bigger than this now. If team leaders and vets are asking/telling him to stop and he continues to do it. Then he is being sellfish and showing a lack of consideration for his team, and that is a problem. No one is bigger than the team.

                            THIS!!! Players are in harms way anytime they are on the field. I sincerely have no problem with it.
