    Brown has the best instincts of any HB the giants have had since Tiki.

    But im not sure they need to knock Wilson to just say that Brown is a very good runner too. Both will get a ton of snaps if they stay healthy
    Thread should be closed after this post: nothing left to say.

    Well...except that the thread should be closed.

    Anyone expecting Wilson to be anything more than a spot player who if given a huge hole can go all the way is deluded.

    Being a very good college back does not necessarily translate to the Pros...........I see Wilson as a project, sorry.

    Andre Brown has been in the league for 3-4 years and has studied his craft............Brown was having All Pro type games until he broke his leg

    Letting Bradshaw go was just plain DUMB

    Brown needs a competent back up and that guy would have been Bradshaw.........Wilson should come in late in game when the D is very tired

    He is no Ray Rice who I was peeved we did not draft out of Rutgers

    If our line could block like the Suburbanites then Wilson could be a Joe Morris type runner

    That is the way Bradshaw was used originally to great success...........Wilson is a straight ahead bullet train.....with no patience or cut back ability at all

    Everything in this post is flat-out wrong.

    I personally think we are going to have a difficult time with hynosky limited/injured. Most of our oline is subpar. As we have learned since some of the better oline got injured/left maybe 2009 you CANT have a great running back without a good line. Its why peterson went from 1000 yards to 2000 its why c2k went from 2k to (1300 ?)

    You need a great running back and a great oline. Since ohara and seubert injuries our o-line has been bad. They played well in spots last year against bad teams panthers, saints, browns, (had an on commonly good game against 49 ers) but when faced with decent defences they could not do crap but kick field goals. The 4 straight 3 and outs in the 4th quarter against the steelers showing how lame the offence really was.

    No I got it from watching him do a Small Ron Dayne imitation last year............running right into the axxes of his own blockers time and time again

    Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is the definition of madness
