Im just curious, I dont recall Chris Wilson getting any play time as of yet. Hes supposed to be a pass rush specialist right? Why not allow him to line up as the DE rushing the passer instead of Marcus Washington? I know Marcus is supposedly better at it, but, who's to say Wilson cant do it?

I only say this because I would rather have Marcus back in coverage over Fletcher. Dont get me wrong, I liked the Fletcher signing, but he just seems to be a step slow and a second late in coverage. Now of course this is all moot if Chris Wilson is a bum, but if he is, then why is he even on the team, when hes mainly a pass rush specialist????

Chris Wilson has seen moderate playing time on third downs/obvious passing situations. The one play I remember in particular was a pass play where Wilson was inches away from swiping the ball right out of McNabb's hand two weeks ago. He played a few snaps last week as well but I don't recall any significant results. He's a project.

I was thinking the same thing since Washington has only one good arm. I would prefer to see Wilson as a down lineman.

I would also prefer to have Rocky and Blades as the linebackers in the nickel package since they have very good speed.

As you might have noticed the Giants tried to take advantage of Fletcher with that deep seam pass to shockey that he dropped.

I am not very familiar with Chris, I see that he has the size to be a DE however I noticed that he attended a relatively small univ. (Norwood) and maybe he hasn't adjusted to the speed of the NFL.

I also see that he's made the active roster and at this point he's probabaly playing on the special teams.
