David Wilson made some costly mistakes for the Giants on Sunday, but he’s not alright with being ridiculed for it. Wilson fumbled twice before being benched in the Giants’ 36-31 loss to the Cowboys, which drew the ire of fantasy owners and Giants fans alike. The performance left most Giants fans with a sour taste in their mouths about the promising young running back and fantasy owners, who spent high-round picks on his high hopes, with feelings of regret — both of which were widely expressed on Twitter. The Giants’ 2012 first-round pick didn’t take too kindly to the criticism, though, responding to the negativity with some choice words of his own for the haters. 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 Wilson’s reaction to fantasy owners is understandable and even acceptable, as he owes them nothing. He may want to adjust his tone a bit when it comes to the loyal Big Blue supporters, though, considering they are the ones paying to watch him play. Veteran Brandon Jacobs re-signed with the team on Tuesday and is expected to help mentor Wilson on the field, but maybe he can help with his maturity, too. Have a question for Luke Hughes?
