  • David Wilson Expects Competition But Ready To Be Starting Running Back

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

    Excerpt: "David Wilson was the Giants' first-round pick last year, but he doesn't expect the starting running back job to automatically be handed to him.

    "The job is not given to anybody, you’ve just got to go out and earn it," Wilson said today, at a Boost Mobile "Shrink Hunger" community event, to help City Harvest combat hunger in New York City.

    Ahmad Bradshaw was cut by the Giants last month, and the team has said Wilson, Andre Brown, Ryan Torain and Da'Rel Scott will all compete for playing time.

    So Wilson has been mostly staying in New Jersey, training and preparing at the Giants' facility. He said he's added a few pounds of muscle -- he wants to play between 208 and 210 pounds, up from 205 last year -- in order to be a better pass protector, which he knows is the key to him staying on the field.

    "Because at the end of the day, Eli is our quarterback in there," Wilson said. "And when the game is in a tough situation, the ball is going to be in his hands to make decisions. And when he makes those decisions, he’s got to be able to stand in the pocket." Read more...

          I really want Eli and Wilson to be able to hook up on more screen passes this season and let this kid fly down the field.
          Giants General Manager George Young recalls, "On his first day back, he wrote on our locker room chalkboard, 'The grass is greener, my butt. P. McConkey.' "

                I want Wilson to succeed but I'm really pulling for Brown, either way we win :-)

                  i heard him interviewed and said he wants to continue returning kicks said he will do everything in his power to keep doing it. said the only way he wont put up a fight if he was told he wasnt returning kicks is if he is told it will take away from his carries

                      I think Brown may get the larger share of the carries to start the season as they continue to develop Wilson. It's a great sign that Wilson has stayed local to work at the team's facilities.

                        should be an exciting camp with these guys vying for the #1 role....
