If he doesn't try, it's never going to happen.
    My point is that since he has realized that he will be limited on offense for the time being, he seems to be taking out EVERY kick that comes his way when he should just down the ball instead in certain spots. There are certainly situations on kick offs where you shouldn't attempt a return, as there are situations where you most certainly should attempt a return. That's all I meant.

    Well its starting to look like it maybe about the kids attitude more than anything else.... and the staff is trying to break him ... the staff pissed out some info this past week " cause they give a **** what we think ?!" or maybe to embarrass him into line ? well the kid pissed back.... I may well have done the same thing if that were the case....but of coarse this is all just assumption on my part.....whatever is where I'm at....play football and shut up

    Excerpt: "Last week, Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and running backs coach Jerald Ingram summed up why David Wilson has been sparingly used at running back this season. And it all boiled down to one point: the first-round pick isn't a complete running back yet.

    Sure, Wilson is a great runner, as explosive as there is, they said. But he wasn't asked to be much more than a runner at Virginia Tech and as Ingram put it, 'at what cost is he explosive?'

    The coaches argued that the rookie still needs to improve in other aspects of being an NFL running back, most notably in pass protection, and a fumble on his second career carry against the Cowboys in the season opener certainly didn't help.

    But Wilson said he simply hasn't been given the opportunity to show that he can do everything that is asked of an NFL running back.

    "They say those statements, but I haven't put in a situation…to see if I could pick up a blitz," Wilson said today. "So I don't know if it's from my college film or what that comes from. But I'm just waiting for my opportunity to get out there."

    Wilson's been asked to pick up blitzes in practice and he said he hasn't had any problems." Read more...
    After winning 2 Superbowls within the last 5 years, you'd think I'd trust the coaches alot more.

    But really, this situation with Wilson is really testing me.

    I can only conclude that Wilson must truly suck during practice and in the film room, because he can't convince the coaches to give him a shot over a dude that can't even practice during the week.

    I've said this before.
    I find it crazy that he has to master all of these things (blocking, pre-snap reads, shifting) in order to get more carries. I'm not even talking about starting. You mean to tell me he can't even split carries with Brown? Come on.

    I know this team doesn't rush rookies, I get it. I will patiently wait for Wilson, but it's getting kind of ridiculous.

    They have created plays for him so we'll have to wait and see when they can get him and them on the field.

    The problem is Wilson sits behind 2 running backs. There was a lot of speculation going into the BYE week that Bradshaw may be sidelined or even end up on IR after he had his "battery of tests." Today we learned he is practicing and that would indicate he's still the # 1. So, Wilson's time on offense is going to still be limited.

    so he says he hasnt missed any blitz pick ups in practice since preseason training camp
    so he says he doesnt know why they said what they said
    so he doesnt know what they want him to improve with but he trust the coaches and what they see...

    he is either a total dumbass or the coaches are lying and dont communicate with him......

    Well I'd assume the coaches communicate since they do it with every other player so that leaves dumbass..
