New York Giants running back David Wilson should pay more attention to holding the ball, and less on what is grabbing his attention on the Internet.
After the second year back's disastrous season debut, Wilson is worried about those who are criticizing him. And he’s making his frustrations known on Twitter.
“Ayy to fantasy participants and pissed Giants fans ur irrelevant to me!!!” Wilson wrote earlier in the day on Twitter. “Nobody wants me to succeed more than ME!!! WATCH US WORK!”

Even Wilson's teammates are telling him to get it together.
Appearing on WFAN-AM in New York on Tuesday, safety Antrel Rolle emphasized that Wilson now has two options: "He can either get in the tank, or he can man up."
Fantasy participants may be irrelevant to Wilson. Giants fans, though, are paying customers who have mostly been around a lot longer than the fumbling speedster.
On Sunday, Giants fans watched Wilson work. And they watched him fumble — twice! Now, with fan favorite Brandon Jacobs looking to redeem his legendary status in the Big Blue backfield, Wilson might just be working on getting out of Tom Coughlin's doghouse.
