New York Giants
Tom Coughlin was actually able to chuckle on Monday when asked if the Giants need a bigger running back seeing that David Wilson was stopped for no gain from the Dallas 1-yard line in the season-opening 36-31 loss to the Cowboys.
“I think we need to block better to be honest with you’’ Coughlin said. “I wasn’t concerned about the goal line from the running backs standpoint. He ran it up in there hard he just didn’t have much to work with.’’
No the blocking of the reshaped offensive line was not good at all on that play but Coughlin and the Giants at the moment have a more pressing need. Wilson took the baton in the backfield from Ahmad Bradshaw who took it from Brandon Jacobs who took it from Tiki Barber and Wilson has more pure physical talent than any of those 1000-yard rushers. But Wilson also has a big problem when it comes to holding onto the ball.
“I’m not going to get into that yet’’ Coughlin said when asked if Wilson after losing two fumbles in the opener remains the Giants

His final stat line read: 7 rushes for 19 yards and two fumbles.
The “starting” running back for the G-men puked all over his cleats in reality and fantasy. So the hate train started rolling down the tracks headed straight for #22.
In response, he tweeted the following...
Now that Brandon Jacobs is back with the New York Giants he wants to come in help second-year back David Wilson get better and help Big Blue win some football games.

Tweet New York Giants running back David Wilson has a major case of fumble-itis. The 2012 first round pick out of Virginia Tech displayed early signs of the condition in the Giants’ season opener last year, fumbling early in the game and finding himself on the bench for most of the season. This year, Wilson’s […]
Giants running back David Wilson is at a crossroads in his NFL career.
Wilson is extremely talented, and so highly thought of, that Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman predicted Wilson would become a breakout star in 2013.
Wilson for his talents, struggles to hang onto to the football while in traffic, and that defficiencie could lead to an early retirement.
Coaches simply can’t play...
The New York Giants signed running back Brandon Jacobs Tuesday.
Jacobs, who played for the Giants from 2005-2011 and was a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams, should help a backfield in flux. Second-year starter in David Wilson is backed up by Da'Rel Scott and Michael Cox. But New York ran for only 50 yards in the season-opening loss to the Cowboys.
Either the New York Giants are trying to send a message to second-year running back David Wilson, or they are legitimately nervous about his fumbling problem. Wilson, who was expected to be a major part of New York’s offensive attack in 2013, put the ball on the ground twice during a loss to the Dallas […]
Week one of the NFL season is almost complete and of course everything went exactly to plan, right? Of course not. Not even Nostradamus himself can predict this sh*t anymore, but some things went our way and some things definitely did not.
It’s a Fumble!!
Stevan Ridley fumbled. Not once, but twice. Emperor Belichick has no patience for such things and he was sent packing...
