    I do not agree.


    1st off, he is not the 1 who went public in this issue. I have no problem with what some of the coaches said, but what Ingram said is very inappropriate. Any coach who goes to the media and says 1 of his players needs to "grow up and be a man" needs a talking to. That is a personal attack, even if a weak 1. What happened to keeping that crap in the locker room? It has no place in the media at all.


    2ndly, what did he say exactly that is bad? he said he awaits his opportunity. Isnt that what you want a guy to say? Considering what was said publicly about him I think he did a pretty good job of not responding in kind. Ingram was the 1 who was out of line.

    lastly, I think this is being blown out of proportion. In 2007 these EXACT same things were said about Bradshaw's development(except the ingram stuff, again innapropriate.) but the coaches came out saying Bradshaw was not picking up blocks and had ball security issues. They held him back until late in the season too.

    Just wanted to put this link here. The kid feels he doesn't know what else to do. They want him to do better in some areas but they don't put him on the field to see what he's got. He doesn't know what more to do. I feel bad for the kid, bet he wasn't expecting to be a first round pick that rides the bench....... And then he met TC

    I thought Wilson was Bradshaw's "project"

    This is basically what most of us have been complaining about. He hasnt been given an opportunity to display whether or not he can do the things he's accused of not being able to do. In the meantime we keep putting out there a team that is not as good as it could be due to favoritism and other ridiculous things. I cannot give the coaching staff any legitimacy when they say he can't play RB due to his pass blocking while they're still starting David Diehl who apparently doesn't have to live up to the pass blocking standards of a HB.
    What do you think of the plays they have designed specifically for Wilson? Is that a sign they are trying to work him in given whatever his deficits are?

    This article, and Wilson's comments are proof of what I have been saying all along.

    How do they know these things if he doesnt get more than 1 single carry per game?

    ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC INGRAM...TC YOU TOO SHOULD BE ASHAMED.

    This is becoming the WILSON-GATE SCANDAL!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry for any overreaction, but I am just ecstatic to hear Wilson kind of echo what some of us have been saying: "What? How would they know, I never get the ball!"
