    Wilson looks forward to increased workload

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...Uk7lYuMbkKnUyM

    Excerpt: "Running back David Wilson hasn’t seen too many chances in his rookie season, but that could all change tomorrow.

    With backup running back Andre Brown (concussion) listed out for Sunday’s game in San Francisco, Wilson will fill in behind Ahmad Bradshaw and hopes to build off his last carry, a 40-yard touchdown run against the Browns, which gave a peek at the potential of the Giants’ first-round pick.

    “Now I look at it like every two carries I got to score a touchdown,” Wilson said jokingly yesterday, after running for 44 yards on two carries in the 41-27 win over the Browns. “It does give me the confidence to go out there, with the touchdown, with the limited plays I had that game, I’m going to go out there and see what I can do with more carries, see if I can be as productive.”

    With Wilson’s speed and elusiveness, he already has been productive on special teams and is tied for the NFL lead with three kick returns of more than 40 yards, a role he will remain in tomorrow. On Thursday, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said the team is “trying to expand his role as fast as we can,” and this week Wilson said he received a heavy increase in offensive reps in practice."

    Love Wilson; however, I think we need Andre this week, his toughness and ability to run between the tackles will be missed!

    I'm afraid Brown still hasn't passed the concussion protocol. So, Wilson is the next man up and I think he may very well rise to the occasion as others have done

    yes Brown has been ruled out for this game and didn't even make the trip to SF. Neither did Bernard or Phillips
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    so there are issues with him digesting the offense. Thats why he has been limited. No biggie....but I am glad they are being smart with him

    If he's as good as I think he is and Gilbride has designed a few plays for him I think he will take full advantage and Pascoe/Bennett will be his gateway to the end zone..

    Ok honest assessment of this weeks game, the running game is likely to be a tough going. We end up throwing a lot and DW doesnt get into the game, save a couple drawn up plays. As long os we win I am ok with that. As long as we at least give DW a shot to give the run game a spark is all I ask.

    he's 2 for 4 in catches. I can give him slack for the one shovel pass Eli gave him, so hopefully his hands are ready for any screen plays.

    The unspoken part of that quote

    ...he will be running our draw.....


    Which of course would work with an overly aggressive defense with no push up the middle.
