TERRELL DAVIS SAYS “KEEP ON EYE ON DAVID WILSON”
Terrell Davis may one day be enshrined in Canton’s Pro Football Hall of Fame for his work as the Denver Broncos running back between 1995 and 2001. So it’s safe to say Davis, now an analyst for NFL.com, knows what he’s talking about.
When asked which running backs he would have an eye on this season, Davis’ first suggestion was Giants halfback, David Wilson.
“I know that Andre Brown went out with the broken leg, but this guy is just an electrifying runner,” Davis said. “He’s one guy that I’m going to turn on my TV on Sunday to watch because he makes big runs.”
Wilson rushed for 358 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie last season. With Ahmad Bradshaw, the team’s leading rusher a year ago, in Indianapolis with the Colts and Brown, who Wilson expected to split carries with, especially near the goal line, out for the next 6 weeks, Wilson is ready to step into a primetime role.
“I know last year he was in Tom Coughlin’s dog house for fumbling the ball,” Davis said, “but I think this year he is really ready for a breakout season.”
“David Wilson runs in there hard. I don’t have a problem with that at all. That’s not an issue for me. He’s powerful. He’s compact. He has tremendous leg strength, which is his forte. For him to run the ball in short yardage and goal line, I don’t have an issue with that at all.” -coach Tom Coughlin
