He played good for a guy with no O-line.

Bradshaw looked Slow, Slow to Cut, Explode/Break, regardless of the blocking which was bad, though there was a few missed opportunities by Bradshaw, his Goalline run whilst no blocking, didn't even turn his hips, he ran straight out of bounds, not even an attempt


his Touchdown run was the best he looked all game, and he still looked slow, he also dropped some passes, missed a couple blocks, he looks rather worn out

Bradshaw held his own. He's no slouch. ShouldersOf, you are pretty bad an analyzing football. We couldn't pass the ball, our PA was awful. The Cowboys knew when we were running it and had at least 7 guys in the box. Oh and in addition to that, our O-line forget it was gameday. Couple all of those together and I'd say Bradshaw did pretty well.

Wasn't Bradshaw's fault, if you get the ball and the opposing D is already in the backfield then you have issues and it isn't the running back it's the O line. We had this same trouble last year and they really didn't do much about it, Locklear was not a significant upgrade in any area.

I thought he looked fine given what was going on in front of him. He got plus yardage out of nothing several times.

IMO, he has to press the hole better, he is too quick to bounce laterally, where given how awful the giants OTs are, there is not going to be any room to run there.

Umm, what holes are you talking about? I didn't see them...

On 16 carries he averaged 2.8 YPC...

Were it not for that 33 yard run his stats look atrocious.


Behind this O-line Bradshaw is very average and often mediocre.

If our O-line is going to suck that much all season David Wilson needs to be the featured back not Bradshaw. Hopefully he has god practices and a good game with excellent ball security against Tampa.

He has to stay and press it until it opens up. Hes too quick to get away from where a play is designed to run.

Umm, what holes are you talking about? I didn't see them...there wasn't a whole lot of good things happening run-blocking wise, which led Bradshaw to be a little jumpy behind the o-line. He cut a couple runs back the other way too soon.
Seemed like he wasn't real confident in the line.

Bradshaw has busted wheels. He'll never be the guy he was in '08 ever again.

It's really difficult to judge, based on how poorly the line played.

If Tiki Barber were still playing, we'd have a much better assessment, because frankly, Barber had superb field vision.

It would also help if our #1 pick isn't a fumble machine.

Thats what I see too!

He has never been a very patient RB.

What it makes it worse is the blocking in front right now
is terrible. The quality of the RB in this situation has nothing
to do with the running game.

Lets all pray to the Oline GODS for better blocking.

Behind the same line Wilson ran 2 carries for 4 yards with a fumble. That is 2.0 lower then 2.8. Bradshaw COULD be faster but he had to put on 15 pounds over years to make up for the bad blocking the o-line does. When given even a small hole he does good things.

TC quote that says it all "AT SOME POINT SOMEONE HAS TO CREATE A HOLE TO RUN THROUGH"

Just wanted to show you guys great job the giants to blocking for bradshaw.

Nice 4 giants "blockers" on the floor. 2 not blocking anyone, and 5 cowboys swarming Bradshaw from every angle...Yea bradshaw should "follow his blocking" more.

He's wearing down but is still effective. Wilson will need to take some of the load.
