On the surface, Wilson's rushing totals of 75 yards on 25 carries are nothing to write home about.
To be fair, with the Giants constantly in catch-up mode, it’s been hard to give Wilson the ball as much as they’d probably like.
However, a closer look at his rushes shows that he's actually made some hay despite his run blocking being so spotty.
When they have given him the ball, he’s shown improvement each week, rebounding nicely from the season opener when he had two fumbles.
Last week against the Panthers, he took advantage of those few solid run-blocking opportunities which resulted in three very impressive rushes that included a 17-yard touchdown (negated by a holding penalty by left tackle Will Beatty); and 11-yard, third-quarter gain; and a 14-yard rush negated by a holding penalty by center David Baas.
In addition, Wilson has quietly improved as a pass-blocker. Though he probably won’t be asked to perform that role very much, when he’s had to do it, he shown enough to inspire some confidence that he can get the job done.
