    Hopefully his touches will tick up week by week between now and then. Also one thing to keep in mind is with Couglins approach he is:

    Teaching Wilson to be a professional to work his *** off while protecting him from hitting the rookie wall that many crash into in November / December when starting since week 1

    Both Wilson and Brown have said they have a lot to learn

    Bradshaw will stay the #1, but obviously Wilson will get more carries as soon as he gets his blocking down.

    POP IT AHMAD!
    ZERO quality wins the last 2 seasons. Major changes are needed.

    I don't expect him to play much more this week than he did last week. The 49ers defense is very good and there is no way they are not going to protect Eli.

    Who else was there ahead of him? Tiki retired so it was BJ, Ward and AB. There wasn't a player of AB's caliber ahead of him.

    One could use the same logic, there is not a player of David Wilson's physically gifted ability ahead of him on depth chart.

    I loved what Ahmad did on Sunday, especially his response to opening game with a fumble, but there is no denying Wilson is the RB of the future. And the potential to be a star.

    I'd like to see Bradshaw as 1A, Wilson 1B, and Brown as our short yardage back.

    If I remember Bradshaw hardly saw any time his rookie year. He burst e's on to the scene week 15 or 16 against buffalo. Then his second year was third with total amount of carries for rbs behind Jacobs and ward. It's only week 5 and Wilson already has been returning kicks and still rotting limited touches. Basically I think Wilson by then end of his first 2 years will have far more opportunities than Bradshaw did.
