Wilson learned a lot from the fumble in the 1st game of the season!
I would never wish that happened to him but it may have been for the better!
he was safe with the ball from that point in a limited role during last season!
I believe and ive said Wilson will be better than both Martin (TB) and Richardson CLE) in the end.
I expect Wilson will be HUGE in the Giants offense!
And further to the OP, what about Tom's loyalty to Diehl? I know, I know, that beaten horse is now dust from the skeletal remains. But still, is the durability really that valuable??? I dont see any genius there, just bad luck that Locklear had that horrific, possibly career ending injury

I'm all for giving DD a retirement party When we have a good experienced replacement. I'm guessing TC feels the same way. With the cap restrictions there was not too much they could do to address that situation.Regarding Wilson, I never said he was a bad apple just that he will be very hungry and have a chip on his shoulder because of his limited role on O last season. Beside the fumble, it was clear that the team had little confidence he was ready to protect our franchise QB.Anyway, Wildon did an amazing job on ST and I'm stoked to see what he can do on O this year!
My sliding mock: (mid round pick)
1-Cyril Richardson G Baylor / CJ Mosely LB Bama
2-Shane Skov LB Stanford / Travis Swanson C Ark
3-Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida / Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers
4-Bryan Stork C Florida St / Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska
5-DeVonte Parker WR Louisville / Chris Watt G ND
6-Kareem Martin DE UNC / Jerome Smith RB Syracuse
Then he fumbled.....
Then we didn't see him in much of anything else on offense except mop up duty until much later in the season.
No I can't say for sure but 1 + 1 would have to be something other than 2, in order for me to interpret it in any other way.
Now...Do you really believe TC would decide that he was only going to carry the ball early in game 1, and then not see him carry the ball early in any more games until much later in the season.......and NOT be influenced by the fumble?
We were talking about those things that are laughable.........
