    I'm easily willing to give Wilson some time. Once he picks up the blocking scheme and develops his between the tackles vision, he's going to be a real threat. Another poster here mentioned a couple weeks ago that when he's in the defense is expecting run all the way. I definitely think this is true. If you want proof, watch the play where Eli scrambled on the boot leg. It was play action to Wilson and even though the defense was in man, nearly the entire defense flowed to Wilson's side expecting him to have the ball. The defense knows he can be a threat wit the ball in his hand. Once he learns the blocking scheme he will be a major threat.

    The bootleg they ran yesterday when Eli had a long scramble was play action with Wilson. Defense sold out to go after him and left the entire other side open.

But our number one back has a bad wheel, number two out for the remained of the season. I would think the Giants brass would be expecting more of a contribution from our #1 pick under the circumstances. Other than being a better than average KR and a few good runs in preseason vs 2nd stringers I've seen little to get enthused about.
    28 CAREER CARRIES. What part of this don't you understand. D's know it will be a run as soon as he steps on the field.
    We can't even say he can't block, because they don't use him on passing downs............

    If gilbride ever gets his head out of his behind and uses him more, to the point that D's are not
    100% sure it is going to be a run, Wilson will also be a huge checkdown threat. Easily could have been
    in the flats on Eli's supposed intentional grounding (yet another penalty that could be called
    10 times a game, but was only called on us) and gone 40 yards.

    Get outta here with this cr@p.. Now you're comparing Wilson, a rookie with how many carries? to Ron Dayne? You make an excellent Mo... short for moron. You gotta be kidding. Wilson has not had much of a chance, but you "fans" are already trashing him. Unreal around here sometimes.

    RF, we did not "lay an egg" we had some good offense and held the foreskins to 17 points.

    We had some bad breaks, and too many penalties. But in no way did we "lay an egg".
