  • I like Wilson but I also like Da'Rel Scott

    Do you think he can help us out this year I don't hear much about him in the giants news, but from what he did before he got injured was very impressive. I just hope he can help us out this year and get back to ground and pound play action football.

    Not sure I ever saw the "very impressive" parts of Darell Scott.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

      He looked like he could be impressive, but never panned out I guess?

          Why do you like him?

            He'd better watch his back because Cox has been getting rave reviews thus far. Coughlin complimented him before and today Pat Traina wrote

            Really like what Cox is showing. Good speed and change of direction. Very quick around the edge.

            I know it's still early but there is gonna be a wide open competition behind Wilson and Brown.

                Well in preseason, he did look like the better blocker than Wilson and Brown. So he at least has that. He's probably the RB that is most dependent on the holes of the offensive line. He doesn't have much of a lateral game to create plays like the others.

                  ....and a 97 yard touchdown run from scrimmage. Don't forget about that.

                  One thing that was really impressed me about him was his speed. That kid was unbelievably fast.

                    Both of those plays game late in preseason games...very late in 1 case. Most of the people on the field at that time were cut from the NFL within a week or 2.

                    I am not saying he is junk, but rather that those 2 plays are hardly enough evidence.


                    Furthermore, people like to bring up Wilson's 1 fumble last year in 132 touches. Scott had 2 fumbles in 5 carries his rookie year(1 was ruled down and not challenged because of circumstances, but it absolutely WAS a fumble and he never got another carry since.) So I do think TC had worries about this problem.

                    Scott is very fast, but I do not see how anyone can say what he is or isn't right now simply because we haven't seen enough of him and what we have seen in actual gameplay is very suspect.

                      I'm not saying he is or he isn't I was just correcting the other poster when he said the only thing Scott did in the preseason was score a td on a fake punt. I don't have an opinion on him one way or the other, but like I said he has promising speed.

                      BTW on that fake punt, he humiliated brandon tate who had an angle on him. That's pretty impressing -- outrunning brandon tate.

                        Brandon Tate is not a speed demon nor is he very good. Scott is very fast, but I've yet to see him break a tackle. On his two big runs it was like the seas were parting.

                          On that play, he literally ran up the back of Brewer, stumbled, then ran up a huge gap that parted rather conveniently.

                            i think he is a developmental player and will compete for the 3rd spot. we may very well carry 4 rbs as we've done in the past. i like scotts upside i really do. he just has to get those shoulder a bit lower, and work on keeping his feet moving after contact, and i dont see why he couldnt be a successful nfl rb for us.

                            he also is a nice change of pace back, he is prob even faster than wilson in terms of top speed. i know he thought he had a shot n then we drafted DW. So, hopefully hes competitive. Not counting him out.

                              Everyone else is playing behind Brown and Wilson unless something changes. Whoever the # 3 will be is up for grabs.
