Here's the full Jerald Ingram quote on the "cost" of David Wilson's explosiveness: "Yeah, he's explosive. But at...
...what cost is he explosive?" said Ingram, the Giants' RBs coach. "OK? Is he explosive at the cost of not being able to protect well, not being able to know his job well enough, being a pro? That all has to develop. Now does that make him hungrier? That's one thing I think we've always done here at the Giants. Our running backs learn to understand that 'Hey, you're not going to get on the field until you learn how to handle all those things.' And they have always made them better. ... It's about winning games. It's not a popularity contest. You know what you can do, but hey, it's time for you to grow up and be a man now and see what you can do with the whole ball of wax. ... It's hard to stick him out there and feel comfortable that he can handle the whole ball of wax."
