RKrap? Where did you go? Still waiting for you to source the play or plays.
I watched the game again. By my count, Wilson played 17 snaps out of 37 in the first half. He played the entire 2nd half. He had 5 tackles. He had 3 missed tackles. He had zero passes defended.
The Lions ran at will most of the game, with 2 back over 100 yards each. The Lions also dominated the 2nd half offensively, and Wilson was on the field the entire time.
One player does not make a defense....I get that...but AWilson makes the team because Gregory and TWilson are not playing well.
Exact same that I saw in camp...he is one and a half steps slow, and we have not seen him pressure the QB in practice or preseason games...maybe that is on hold for the season. COllins has looked better covering a TE.
Not much more to say...
You expect people to believe this? How many more times do I need to write that the QBs don't throw in his direction? When they did, it was a check down to Bush.
That's it. So, he's unlikely to have ANY passes defensed if they're avoiding him other than checkdowns to Bush.
Pettigrew had 2 catches on him. Scheffler, zero, Fauria, zero.
The one catch, the first one Pettigrew had, Wilson had outstanding coverage, got his hand in there to knock it down, but it richocheted up into Pettigrew's chest, where he was barely able to hang on as he fell to the ground. It was a 6 yard gain. The horror!
Did you see how when he was on the field, they couldn't convert a 1st down?
He played in the second half with people who wom't even be here in a week. Yet, you're judging his stat line or play in that situation?
Try again. Corey Grissom, Scott Vallone, Vellano, and whoever else our D line was in the second half, aren't to be excused for run D in the second half, with somewhow and oddly pretending Wilson is responsible for any rushing yards in the second half.
Then, you say "one player does not make a defense".
Umm, no kidding, but how does that counter my points about HOW BB is using him in terms of strategic positioning on 3rd downs with the 1s in the first half?
The defense was OUTSTANDING! 4 turnovers and the D answered the bell at every turn, MINUS the TD where A. Wilson was not on the field? Coincidence? I think not.
The only misplay from Wilson the entire game was him not realizing Mayo was going to so severley overrun the Bush check down play that went for 67 yards. If Mayo uses the sideline to his advantage there and funnel Bush back, Wilson is right there making the tackle. So, he was in position there, too, if Mayo does not overpursue as the lead tackler. Weak contain by Mayo on that play.
Other than that, outstanding game at LB and Safety for Wilson. Even on the fake blitz play where Bush ran away from him to the weakside, where Wilson had to catch up from the strong side, through, traffic, he did, stride for stride. He forced him back inside to set the edge where his teammates made the play for another 3 and out execution. Excellent job, considering the designed route Detroit had drawn up.
There is no way you watched the game again. You're a liar.
Give specific examples or it looks like I've caught you lying again. All you're doing is regurgitating stats and then trying to make it seem like it's on Wilson, which is VERY suspicious, considering I asked you for certain plays where you think he played poorly.
You still haven't done it. Looking at the box score and regurgitating pointless stats is not countering what I wrote on the first page of this thread.
If you can't play with the big boys in a debate, then don't post.
you are correct. he makes the team. pardon my opinion and thoughts, even though I saw him live 13 times and you saw him on TV once.
your 3rd drive of the game analysis is beyond comical...
