Tom Coughlin is sick of it. Not even talking about David Wilson‘s fumbles. He is tired of talking about those dumb fumbles and what the plan is with David Wilson:
“Geez. Man, oh man, oh man, oh man,” Coughlin said Wednesday morning via the NY Daily News. “I can’t say any more about David Wilson, except that if I watch him in practice and his technique doesn’t improve, I’ll let you know. OK? I’ll let you know.”
Coach Coughlin is not going to stick with a runningback that is going to put the ball on the ground. He is not going to deal with someone who is going to reduce the chances of winning.
They even signed Brandon Jacobs to take away some of the carries. Tom Coughlin has shown his feelings on Wilson everytime he puts him on the bench. He doesn’t trust him.
“In practice he’s going to have to have the ball in that position all the time, not just when he thinks he’s running free and there’s nobody around him,” Coughlin said. “I want to see the ball in the right spot all the time …
“And quite frankly there’s nowhere else to go with this. I don’t know what else to say to you. I realize it’s a major issue for everybody. But there’s a way to carry the ball and there’s a way to protect the ball. Ball security is No. 1. And that’s what he’s going to have to demonstrate.”
If David Wilson could just hold onto the football, there would be nothing to talk about.
