Found December 13, 2012 on Juan Elway:
Fantasy footballers and Giants’ fans are perfectly happy with David Wilson backflip celebrations.  It means he reached the endzone.  Not everyone in the locker room is pleased with the athletic move by the rookie. “I told him several times never to do that again,” Tuck said Wednesday. “We’re going to have another talk about not doing it. Everyone knows how athletic he is, but the last thing we need is him having some tweak injury by showing off to the crowd.” “Let’s just keep him upright and running and leave the backflips for YouTube. They’re already on YouTube. If people want to see them, they can go to YouTube and see them.” Or here?  If Ahmad Bradshaw is out this week, how high will Wilson shoot up the rankings against a shaky Falcons run D?  I would have him firmly in the top 15 as his upside is unreal.  Here We Go Again: David Wilson Camta Clause Came To Town
