  • David Wilson as a slot receiver

    I think this could be a huge advantage for us in our play calling. think about it with his speed he can probably outrun some of the DBs around the league. it would be a match-up nightmare for most of the defenses around the league. maybe it is something giants can work on during the off season along with his ability to block.

      We already have a great slot receiver (Cruz)
      Lets stick Wilson at his original position, and give him 18-25 carries a game. And would like to see him used more in the passing game.

        I emailed your idea to Coughlin. I'll let you know what he thinks about it.

          Because Wilson is fast, he's a mismatch in the slot? Is that the same logic as Barden is tall, he's a great redzone threat?

            We went from direct snap failures to the RB to sending them out to aid the passing game every now and then (not necessarily slot of course). That's an improvement.

                  I still think the scenario can be a threat. cant we have 2 slot receivers, one on each side? or what if we line up cruz as a WR or maybe he is out of the game for a play or two. Kind of like we used to use Shockey as a slot receiver to create match up problems. if they bring in a DB to cover then leave him lined up as a RB or move him up the line if they leave in their base package. maybe not every down but as a variation.

                      typical for this message board,,rather than poke fun why don't you all enlighten us with why this would not work from time to time? I mean a 5 year old can poke fun,,try injecting something useful,,,you know,,,act like your intelligent at least.

                        True its not MADDEN but a little creativity doesn't hurt either. I mean the whole year was pretty much a plain vanilla offense and if something isnt working maybe we should learn to adapt/change.

                          I can see splitting him out now and then. Always good to give a different look. The kid is a good RB. Let's live him there. I would rather he gets sent out, out of the backfield. I'd rather see him matched against a LB. Turned out well today for a TD.

                            The Giants have Cruz and Jernigan, they don't need another slot receiver. If you mean having Wilson line up much like CJ Spiller does on occasion, then sure. But the guy is a running back first and foremost, that's what he was brought in to do.

                              exactly! start off by lining him up as a RB and then maybe motion him out to the slot if the defense calls for it, this way you are generally forced to put a LB on him to cover. we really couldn't do that before in the years past with Bradshaw and Jacobs. I think with Wilsons athletic ability he can be troublesome to opposing defenses.
