“Give him some time,” the TV host told us at LAX on Friday.
Burleson says Wilson is learning how to handle his tasks as an NFL quarterback…and that includes taking accountability for his bad plays when speaking to the media.
“You can lose a team by playing, but you can also lose a team by how you react to a play,” added Burleson. “I think that’s the biggest lesson he’s learned. What you say to the media can affect the locker room.”
