There are certain things you can do to redeem yourself after fumbling twice before getting benched for Da'Rel Scott in an NFL season opener. Slamming the fans and calling them irrelevant is not one of those things.
But apparently David Wilson missed that lecture at the rookie symposium last summer, because Tuesday night, the second-year Giants tailback took to Twitter to ream fans who were criticising his performance Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
Ayy to fantasy participants and pissed Giants fans ur irrelevant to me!!! Nobody wants me to succeed more than ME!!! WATCH US WORK!
-- David E. Wilson (@4stillRunning) September 10, 2013 To be fair, it's understandable why fan reaction to Wilson's performance (two fumbles in seven carries and just 19 yards) might get under his skin. I mean, just look at his mentions on Twitter. How would you feel if that's what your timeline looked like?
But then again, it's not as though the fans, rude as they may be, don't have a legitimate point...
