    "Starter" is pretty much meaningless now in football at most positions

    with the exception of possibly a couple of position...this is very true

    David Wilsons college tape I thought showed average RB instincts.Physically he was outstanding but some of the criticisms are valid even though they are way over the top and exggarated

    Yep, though I think Bradshaw had much the same issue with patience and instincts. Bradshaw turned into a very capable starter.

    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

    TC is very fond of using the two-back system, with one shifty back and one power back. Granted, I think he was a little spoiled for a while when both Jacobs and Bradshaw were in their prime (since Bradshaw actually had a good amount of power for himself), but it's a no-brainer that Wilson will be the shifty back and Brown the power back... both getting significant touches, both contributing greatly.
    I thought so too, but Wilson was catching for Weatherford at mini-camp and mentioned in his interview that he still wants to do KRs.

    Yeah, except to the "back-up".

    Coaches and scouts now know not to look at who specifically is "starting" (except for QB) and look at what kind of production they have, and ascertain how much is due to their talent and how much is due to system and whoever they're playing with... I.e., how much is Cruz's production based on his pure physical talent and how much is due to being paired with Nicks?

    what!? that comment doesn't make sense.... the other way around, starting doesn't have meaning in few positions on either offense or defense. don't get carried away now
