    You'd think that would have ended this debate. Nope. People are in love with their own opinions....even in the face of great logic.

    thats just the thing. Wilson is to new and young to be intimidated by them. He doesn't know any better. He doesn't know he not supposed to be able to go out there and tear off long 50/60 yard TDs against that defense
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

But he's better off getting his reads and blocking down before he has to be thrown into the game unprepared. He will continue top get touches and the best thing he can do is what he did last Sunday.
    I did not mean to suggest he was relegated to the bench.... "They are developing him as is there habit"... that's exactly what I was saying.

It has to be frustrating and disheartening for the premise to be put in place that his lack of opportunities stems from a fumble in game 1 and that he needed to work into good graces. Meanwhile the #1 RB prior to this game was performing horribly all season and then starts the game off with a fumble yet Coughlin goes right back to him. It's almost like the rules don't apply to everyone and even though Wilson was tearing it up with the kick returns he wasnt given any other opportunities due to one simple mistake in his first game.

    It's this kind of over the top conservative philosophy with rookies that makes me think that Coughlin wouldnt even be playing a rookie Adrian Peterson if we had him. If you're going to make a huge stink over the fumble like he did you need to apply that fairly to others especially those who were not performing up to the standards. It's funny though, TC sticks with the guy who fumbles and that guy gets a 200 yard game. Makes you wonder what Wilson couldve done had he been stuck with and not bailed out on.
    Completely wrong. Rookies and vets do not get the same rules. Rookie has to earn trust, the vet has it already. AB's fumble this week was a weird play where Snee smashed into him right on the ball. He didn't get stripped. And as far as the blocking. Maybe he has had the chance to show his skills in practic and hasn't done a good job. Don't worry you can save your Wilson jersey, it will be his job soon.

    Yeppers.......I could have busted a few dandy runs with the line we had back then. But probably not now because I'm always wasted all the time. I AM still pretty spry on my feet, though.

    I lieu of Wilson madness on these boards, AB is still one heck of running back. Its sad to see his great blue journey come to an end. But the time is near. A changing of the guards looms soon in the wind.
