  • Reese thinks Wilson can be "Lead Dog"

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...uture-lead-dog

    We kind of knew this already.
    Just when I don't think it can get any worse, I think of you Ray. I have been to the abyss....thank you for helping me stay positive.

    Well lets hope he learns to block or he will never be a lead back.
    From what I saw he didnt do very good at times but he has an entire off season to work on this.

    Very exciting player thou.

      He's young, the blocking will come. He has natural ability to run and catch, plus he does backflips.

        I know different types of offense and realize that all backs don't have to be good blockers inorder to start long as you have a te of fb who can.

          We should go find BJ and let him spend a couple days with Wilson... now there's a guy who linebackers were afraid to blitz against (at least when BJ was in his prime)

          I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

            This is the NFL in 2012. If you can't block you can't play RB. Reese is going to keep talking about this guy but the fact is that guys like Derek Wolfe and Bobby Wagner were still on the board at that time and he reached for a scat back that can't block.

              I want to give him at least one more season before declaring off the mountaintop that he absolutely can't block. He was pretty much thrown into the fire after Brown got hurt. He put in a lot of extra work with Hynoski learning the blocking assignments, and even though he didn't really have much power in blocking thus far, from the falcons game onwards he never truly missed an assignment or have any big whiffs. Bradshaw has had more whif***e and missed assignments in the past few games than Wilson...

              tl;dr: there is definite upside here.


              I still think if we invest heavily in the O-line, he can be sent on more routes out of the backfield and on play action, where he would be more effective in the passing game.

                    same.

                    glad his training dummy was eli in non-contact practices or Carr, and not eli in real games.

                      His blocking was no worse than Bradshaw's in the latae season. Bradshaw was totally missing blocks, hardly even making any contact at all at times.

                        Gilbride's job handling the running attack in the 2nd half of the season is one of the reasons the Giants are on the outside looking in.

                          Someone else made a great point a while back.....if the defense is showing blitz, the Giants should have flanked Wilson out and made the blitzer account for Wilson as a receiver.

                          But God forbid Gilbride ever deviate from his brilliant gameplan.

                            Then in two years after a sub 1000 yard season running behind DD he will likely tell him to go "Talk to tiki" so he can learn how be a star despite how bad other giants personel is, like he just did with JPP
                            Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.
