Giants rookie David Wilson lost a fumble on his second career carry, and he was feeling so badly about it he began crying on the sidelines. If you look carefully at the image above, you can see a tear streaming from the corner of Wilson’s left eye. The first-round pick fumbled seven times last season at Virginia Tech and lost four of them, so there’s little doubt this was an issue already in his head.

Even though Wilson fumbled and may lose some ground in his competition with Ahmad Bradshaw, there are a few positives to the turnover. One, it didn’t cost the team any points. Two, at least the crying shows us how much Wilson cares. And three, he’s playing for a coach who has an excellent reputation for helping players with fumbling issues (see his work with Tiki Barber).

  • Crying? There's no crying in football!
  • If you are not gonna play with emotion, don't bother to play. It's better than coming off the field with a smile or a smirk after such a costly error. Play with emotion or don't play.
  • But crying?? Seriously??
  • "Here,here"
  • Are you SERIOUS c`mon dude i suppose you watch Lifetime just for the movies...lol
  • What a cry baby.I could maybe understand if it was Superbowl,but not a regular game,what wuss
  • bull crap nana. I would rather see the raw emotion like that instead of on the sidelines laughing and acting like he hadn't screwed up. It was his 1st real pro game that counts, so the emotion was fine
  • I agree "ItsYerDime," I saw him go over to the sideline after the fumble and he was immediately surrounded by the coach & players. So he got emotional. That shows how much this game and this team mean to him. He was the last pick during the first round so this is a big deal. He's a kid, so give him that. It shows he has heart. And I've seen bigger and more experienced guys get choked up and emotional at games. It's nothing new.
  • How many times have you seen the seasoned vets with a towel over their head one the bench? Nobody seems to have a problem with that though.
