    A logical fallacy in place of a true rebuttal, yet i am the one that is illogical. Very fascinating.

    RBs,1st round ones, are a different case though. They come out of college nearly 100% developed (pass blocking being the exception majority of the time) and are expected to be a main weapon on the offense almost from the get-go. Trent Richardson and Doug Martin are already the largest parts of their offenses and that's just staying in the 1st round of the previous draft. Considering Andre Brown is out until the Super Bowl and assuming we make a large push into the playoffs, Bradshaw will miss a game at some point (it's just how it is with him) and we will need Wilson to play like a 1st round starting RB. From the few carries we have witnessed, his vision is poor and he seemingly can't find the holes when they are there. The guy at some point in his contract needs to become the feature back or we will look back at it as a poor selection.

    I think he will be the "feature back" at some point, probably next season. For now, he's learning his trade every week.

    That doesn't answer the question but it's not that important. Wilson will become the feature back when he's ready. The very same people clamoring for him to get more snaps before the Redskins game, are the same people ragging on him now for poor performance based on ma handful of carries. Yet we have some good Wilson news that everyone seems to not care about which is his emergence as a significant weapon as a kick returner.

    You've just stated the problem. We can't make a fair assessment from him getting 3 carries a game.

    again. The point is, that you don't use first round picks on running backs that aren't ready to play offense their rookie year. a first round pick on a rb that contributes on 6 plays a game is terrible value.

    Wilson will develop and be a feature back at some point. He hasn't gotten enough opportunities to thoroughly judge him at RB in my opinion. He's been solid on kick returns.

    Fans didn't appreciate Tiki's skills and management even drafted his replacement (Ron Dayne drafted at #11 which most people were very high on at first) , look at how that turned out.

    Im surprised no one has talked about Torrain. Im excited to see this guy play. I think he will bring it against the saints (Hopefully he plays) I saw him when he was with washington, hes exactly what we need to replace brown. Lumpkin guy looked clueless though, maybe he didnt know the plays who knows.
