What do you mean by "hes done"? I mean if he has to sit out some of 2014 then so be it. Correct me if i'm wrong, but the doctors gave Wilson the option to end his career as this injury is obviously potentially serious or continue playing with the risk, and he chose the later. Yeah it's shortened some NFL players' careers, but the others play just as long as any other player in the NFL does. As far as I'm concerned, as a rookie he was all-pro and broke records as a rookie. For the 4-5 games he played this year, he got maybe 10 carries a game playing behind the worst OL in the league with Baas and Snee both playing with unknowingly season-ending injuries against some of the best D-lines in the NFL. And now of all of a sudden people think he's a bust and are giving up on him. It's stupid.

im not saying hes a bust personally i love wilson, bright future but neck surgery is a very serious things..like i said one big hit to that part of his body could really mess him up, but i could be wrong he could comeback which i seriously hope happens but i dont like the chances of this david wilson being the explosive one he once was

He broke records as a rookie, sure, not rushing records...unfortunately he's a RB. You may have to come to terms with the possibilities that he 1. Is done because of his neck and 2. Maybe just wasn't that good of an NFL RB.

He had a 5.0 ypc his rookie year(71 attempts) when he was playing behind an OK offensive line. When he was the starting RB this year(44 attempts, 3.3 avg), which honestly isn't THAT bad considering there were only 1-2 people on the line who could block. The rookie Pugh and sometimes Kevin Boothe. Our offensive line has been awful all year, but it was by far at its worse in the first third of the season, or every game Wilson played in. There is absolutely no running back who would've been productive in that situation as he was getting hit as soon as he touched the ball half the time! Gilbride barely made any adjustments to use him dynamically either. He only had 2 catches in those 4 1/2 games.

And yeah, it's possible that he could end his career with a brutal blow to the neck. But that career-ending hit may never come or may be in 5-6 years. I think there's no reason to think he's not going to be a good NFL RB, unless his fumbling habits linger.

What I'm saying is he could be done already. That's what I'm saying. He may never play again.

So are you saying that he may choose to never play again and announce his retirement after his surgery? I really don't know a lot about the condition, I'm just going with what I've heard.

I'm saying he may never get cleared and may not be his choice. Obviously he wants to play again, it's why he's having the surgery.

Is that even possible? I haven't seen that as a concern anywhere, but I really don't know that much about the whole procedure.
