    Bradshaw says Wilson doesn't need so much flash

    BRADSHAW SAYS WILSON DOESN'T NEED SO MUCH FLASH

    Excerpt: "David Wilson’s teammates rave about his explosive ability, and his head coach has seen enough to believe in his big-play ability.
    But the Ahmad Bradshaw, has some advice for his rookie understudy. To Bradshaw, Wilson needs to sometimes ditch his flash, and focus on a simpler running approach.


    “He’s still young,” Bradshaw said Friday. “He kind of does his own thing, juking and doing a lot of things, putting a lot of torque on his ankles and knees and different things. We’re trying to teach him how to be a professional and just hold back on some of those things.” Read more...
    “Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” MB Rule # 1

    I'm glad Wilson has Bradshaw as a mentor, WIlson really has a great experienced back in Bradshaw to learn from! I'm so excited to see how these two can turn around our running game.

    I expect big production from Wilson as our #2 in year 1. I also expect him to be our first real threat out of the backfield in a LONG time.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    i think Wilson should take sum advice but technique wise these guys are different players , We've never had a running back like Wilson before

    I think that's why he's trying to advise him to change his running style - so he doesn't end up like Bradshaw. Bradshaw does some ridiculous jumpcuts, and there's a reason why his ankles are always falling apart.

    Indeed, they are completely different runners, i hope Wilson doesn't start believing he has to change his game just to please the vets, understandably he should listen to his Coaches, but even still, they should not try to 'Alter' the way Wilson runs, they should work with it and develop him from there,

    if he starts trying to change the way he runs, it will only slow him down, in all aspects of his abilities,


    on a side note, we still don't get much reporting about him from Camp,

    well to be fair, one of the reports on him coming into the league is that he has an unusual unorthodox running style. but that came from him running up high too much and every thing i've read from camp is that he's staying low which is huge for a guy like him.
    i think what bradshaw is talking about ultimately is that wilson is still a rookie. he's prob going a thousand miles a minute in his head when he gets his chances, and his footwork could be reflecting that. that leads to a lot more stutter type steps instead of sure footed planting and exploding thru. i dunno tough to tell from the article...kinda rubbed me the wrong way to be honest. keep it inhouse bradshaw
