  • Tiki Barber: Success Of Giants' RB David Wilson Will Hinge On Timing

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/15/...nge-on-timing/

    Excerpt: "There is no denying New York Giants running back David Wilson's potential. In just his first season with the team, he was named second-team All-Pro as a kick returner after establishing himself as one of the most dangerous return men in the NFL. As a running back, Wilson broke 12 of his 71 carries on the season for 10 or more yards, including a long of 52 yards against the New Orleans Saints.

    However, that's not to say the rookie phenom does not still have a long way to go before he proves himself worthy of becoming the Giants feature running back. Today, former Big Blue standout Tiki Barber had his own analysis on where Wilson needs to improve.

    "You realize that football is a dance, like a salsa or a tango,"Barber told The Wall Street Journal. "If I'm going too fast, then my partner is messing up. If I move too fast, my offensive line's timing is wrong. If I'm jumping the gun, then my quarterback is out of sync with me. It's going to take some time, but he'll figure it out." Read more...

              He has great balance, can take a big hit at the hips and just roll with it. I like his upside.
              No one remembers who came in second.

                I'm not convinced he's a "fast learner", but I am convinced he will get it right.

                  That backflip picture has the most unfortunate timing. It looks like Wilson is diving head-first into the ground...

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

                    Everybody's success in the NFL hinges on discpline, Cornerbacks can't jump every route, Linebackers can't run through every gap, Ends can't go for the quarterback every down, Safetys can't go for the big play rather than the safe one.. I can go on and on. No different with Wilson than every other player in the NFL.

                      way to go tiki. nice analysis. i agree too. wilson cant just go full sprint every stride out there. he has to play with a timing he develops with his OL over practice (altho the new practice rules kinda dampen that) and be methodical. cant wait to see a finished wilson product. this guys is gonna be something special.

                        no he can't just sprint all the time, but the 4.35(pro day) and 4.29(college) 40 times won't hurt. I had no idea he was that fast.

                          +1. I saw enough this year to be confident that he'll be a very good RB soon enough.

                            I'm confident in him and our coaching staff. He will become our featured running back barring any injuries.

                              IIRC....this is kind of what Bradshaw told him in preseason. You have to slow the game down and let things set up in front of you.
