“If a guy blitzes and I’m in there, I think since we’ve gotten out of training camp I haven’t missed one in practice,” Wilson said. “But, you know, I don’t know what it is. But maybe it’s not like I’m firm enough in practice or something. I don’t know. Like I said, he knows how to evaluate and (Ingram) knows how to do his job. That’s not my area. I’m the player, he’s the coach, and I still got learning to do and growing to do as a player.”

Huh. Started out badm ended better. Still should not speak.
Didn't think it was bad
The coaches could've handled it a whole lot better as well. They went so far as to say he needs to "grow up and act like a man" (paraphrased). Of course, none of this criticism was leveled until 8 weeks after the infamous fumble that put him in the dog house. IMO, Gilbride and Ingram are trying to deflect criticism people have for the way Coughlin has relegated Wilson to the bench because of the one fumble.
I've said it before.....he was slated the #2 guy going into the Cowboys game. If that was the case, the coaches must've had trust in Wilson to pick up blitzes and execute his assignments. Then, after the fumble, Wilson's all of a sudden a guy who needs to learn how to handle "the whole ball of wax". Now he "needs to learn to be a complete back" and he needs to "act like a man".....I mean, WTF.
Gilbride and Ingram are doing nothing more than covering their boss's a$$. I think they're going overboard and it sounds like Wilson is gettin' tired of the PUBLIC criticism. To hear that stuff in practice is one thing but to be drug through the mud in public is another. And I completely understand he's an NFL player in the public eye but it's also important to not air dirty laundry in public.
Take Dez Bryant for instance....the dude has accepted a misdemeanor deal in a family assault charge.....in the article, his coach is pretty supportive of the player even under the circumstances. And to think Wilson had the nerve to fumble the ball once. I'd have a whole lot more respect for the Giants coaches if they just came out and said, "look, Coach Coughlin is a stickler for ball security and while he comes off as a hard a$$, he's doing what he thinks is right."

He needs to keep his damn mouth shut
coach should keep his mouth shut
"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference. Marines don't have that problem" Ronald Regan
they got two RBs a ton better than the guy they are playing
stupid is as stupid does
the RB coach needs to stop talking to the media altogether or talk in platitudes
as it is now they're going to have to strap DW's mouth shut or just admit they've mishandled the RB situation this season
only reason they're playing the guy now is to trade him and get his value up
Theyve won two recent super bowls...I think they know what they're doing.
Wilson needs to needs to keep quiet and keep working. He'll get his chance and he will be really good when he does.
David Wilson is a high-character kid who wants nothing more than to help his team win. People are insinuating he's crying about playing time, but I believe any player would be doing the same thing for being benched for what was your 3rd carry of your career.
Give me a break, this is one of the few "good people" in the NFL.
Couple of arrest and failed drug test and Wilson would be starting
I don't see anything wrong with anyone talking? The media asks questions and the coaches and players answer them. It's the NY media. Play for Houston and they'll probably talk about his back flipping and his fedora hats.
Very cynical way to look at athletes. Most are fine people, but the screwups get the media time, as always.
