David Wilson was supposed to be the break-out running back of the season. A second-year player primed to make "The Leap," he went stupidly high in many fantasy leagues, ahead of more established backs and receivers. But everything seemed right. He's talented, he played for what seemed like a good team, he'd get the scoring opportunities. Then he fumbled twice in the Giants' opening game. And he landed on Tom Coughlin's shit list. You don't want to be on Tom Coughlin's shit list. New York signed Brandon Jacobs, who literally doesn't have knees, to take away Wilson's carries, and to make matters worse, the Giants are horrible and constantly playing from behind this season. Wilson didn't have a chance.
So that's a long way of saying: Wilson's double backflip following a touchdown run today is totally fucking justified.
