David Wilson Shows Giant Impact In Preseason
Don't take anything from the NFL preseason in terms of wins and losses. These games are about getting starters ready and reserves in places where they can succeed. A lot of times, a player can also show exactly what you need, whether that player is a starter or a back-up. Put David Wilson into that category for the New York Giants.
In the Giants' 20-12 preseason loss to the Colts, Wilson showed some flashes. He busted out a 21-yard gain and had 34 total yards on 8 carries. Wilson was active in blocking and already gave the Giants a good idea of what he can be as a combo back and a guy who will split time with Andre Brown.
Wilson is a huge piece to the Giants' offense. Yes, the NFL is about passing first and running second these days. But you still need a little bit of a balance on offense with a running game. Wilson, the Virginia Tech product, can provide a lot of that.
So, heads-up Giants fans. Don't pay attention to the loss against Indianapolis. Pay attention to the readiness of players in preparation for Week 1 and the NFL season.
David Wilson is just about ready.
