NFL Draft Zone:
Ahmad Bradshaw said he expects rookie RB David Wilson to have a big role in the wake of Andre Brown’s broken leg. Due to his troublesome feet, Bradshaw seems to know that he is not a true workhorse. Over the last five weeks, Brown was averaging 8.2 touches per game. If Wilson can earn the staff’s trust in pass protection and not fumble, he figures to assume that role. “When I was a rookie I told David that D-Ward (Derrick Ward) broke his fibula and I had to step in and be a big part of our offense,” Bradshaw said. “That’s what I expect from David. I told David just to get ready for the weeks to come. I think he can be a big part of our offense once we get him going.” Wilson does not project to assume Brown’s goal-line duties.

It took the words of a very special child to remind the Giants of how they're capable of playing. And sure enough, that special child, 15-year old Adam Merchant, was rewarded with a chance to witness his favorite NFL team put on one of its best performances of the season in person.
