However, I think his pass blocking may very well indeed need improvement, hence, his appearance as a KR. That role allows him to focus on refining his running style, work on his ball security, gets him the ball in open space where he's most effective, and doesn't require him to pass protect.
I know we were all going into the season thinking he'd split carries with Bradshaw, but I don't think any of us expected Brown to step up the way he did. Even I, a big supporter of Brown, was surprised (pleasantly) by what happened vs TB and Carolina. He fits into the more Jacobs role of a power back. It's not the exact same thing, as Brown isn't as big as Jacobs, but on the other hand he waits for the right hole to develop and hits it at full power, not to mention he gets lower than Jacobs ever did. I was surprised that they didn't utilize Brown's ability to run up the middle to exploit the crap out of that wide 9 gimmick BS. That was just a MASSIVE lost opportunity there. Not saying take Bradshaw out, but split carries 50/50 as opposed to the 70/30 that it was.
But it's not there anymore.....hasn't been there since 2010. So maybe he should run the ****ing play, as it's called, or sit down and let someone else try.
I've got this crazy ****ing idea.
Last time I checked, Wilson was a RUNNING BACK......not a wide receiver, and not a fullback. Maybe the Giants could *****GASP***** line Wilson up in an I-Formation and *****GASP*****........ HAND OFF the ball and let him RUN with it????
I know, I know......I'm nuts for thinking they should use Wilson as a running back. Sorry.
