I thought watching he game he was just fired up but apparently there may have been something wrong. He may have been shouting at his position coach and TC. He also slapped Cruz hard on the helmet then it looked like he went over to him to apologize. Watching it I thought he was just fired up and hit Cruz a little hard but now I'm wondering what happened. I read where he didn't talk to reporters after the game. What could have happened? When I thought he was just fired up and I was loving it. I was hoping he would go over to the defense to fire them up. I hope he takes his anger out on Dallas next week.

^ This. lol.

Seriously though, I think at that point he was just really fired up and only had around 8 carries up until then.

Coming off 200, and 100 yard games he just wanted the ball.

I think he hit Cruz hoping that some of Cruz's magic would rub off.

Just a theory.

Bradshaw needs to worry more about what he does with the touches he gets than with the total number of touches. The formula is not hard to work out ... lack of production = less touches. What you did in the last game means nothing.

10-22-2012, 10:23 AM
Not really. Last week he didn't have a great first half but they stuck with he run and he finished the game well. They did seem to abandon the run yesterday and its not like hey where ever trailing by two scores. Plus up until the end of the game Eli was not having a great day.

I think when they showed him slamming his helmet it was right after Eli threw a pick. I think it was the one where they just reviewed to see if RG3 did in fact fumble the ball and Eli threw a bad ball. It wasn't even like they where going for a big play after the fumble. Is was a quick pass to I believe Nicks that didn't look like it was going anywhere anyway.

That's what I thought too while watching he game yesterday but reading that he didn't talk with reporters, the hard slap on the helmet of Cruz, and the exchange with his position coach made me think something else was wrong. Nothing that would have him sit or be benched this week. I'm sure whatever it was it will be resolved in house and I expect him to star this week.

chasjay
10-22-2012, 01:07 PM
My thought at the time it started with the helmet slam was that he was ticked off that Eli had called an audible from a primary run play to the pass, and then threw a dumb pass to give the ball right back to the Skins. But the fact that he was steamed for as long as he was makes me think it wasn't just for Eli's mistake, but that there was more to it. Maybe several things boiling up at once.

From what it looks like in recent weeks with the revamped O-line, we have been converting on a lot of 3rd and shorts from running plays. I know we utilize the run game more than most NFC teams but we should still run the ball. It makes our O-line even better.

Azeemdadream
10-22-2012, 01:43 PM
The reason why he wacked Cruz on the helmet was because Cruz didn't do his job and block downfield. I watched the replay a few times and if Cruz would have blocked the guy who eventually tackled Bradshaw, that was likely a TD. Instead Cruz stood around assuming he didn't need to block that far downfield. I'm glad Bradshaw vented because if you watch a few plays later, Cruz got his butt in gear and came back to Bradshaw looking for approval of a better job.
As far as Bradshaw yelling at Coughlin, I think that had a lot to do with what someone else stated earlier, he wasn't happy with the play calling and wanted the ball in his own hands (I like his attitude). He's usually a pretty fiery on the field but respectful of the coaches hence why Coughlin didn't pull him.

http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/18651/what-was-bradshaw-upset-about

Excerpt: "Ahmad Bradshaw (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/10693/ahmad-bradshaw) typically is one of the most excitable Giants on the field. But on Sunday, let's just say he was even more animated than usual.

Bradshaw seemed to be extra fired up after good runs and his emotions may have spilled over when he was seen on camera having what appeared to be an intense conversation with head coach Tom Coughlin during the game.

"That's between he and I," Coughlin said of the exchange.

Also, Bradshaw was seen on camera tapping Victor Cruz (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13553/victor-cruz) on the back of the helmet with a little more oomph than your normal friendly tap on the head. And he also had a conversation with running backs coach Jerald Ingram on the sideline.

It's unclear what was going on with Bradshaw, who wasn't quoted after the game. As NFC East blogger Dan Graziano points out, we can only speculate (http://espn.go.com/blog/nfceast/post/_/id/44666/what-was-up-with-ahmad-bradshaw). " Read more...



Another blurb:


Giants' RB Ahmad Bradshaw Had Heated Exchanges With Tom Coughlin, Victor Cruz on Sunday

http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/22/giants-rb-ahmad-bradshaw-had-heated-exchanges-with-tom-coughlin-victor-cruz-on-sunday/

Excerpt: "After the 27-23 comeback victory over the Redskins (http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/21/new-york-giants-win-wild-one-edge-robert-griffin-iii-and-washington-redskins-27-23/), Bradshaw did not address the media. Coughlin, however, did.
“That’s between he and I,” Coughlin said of their on-field conversation.
Bradshaw did eventually take to Twitter early Monday morning, and after having cooled down a bit, tried to smooth the situation over.
"I'm all in! Jus gotta believe! #Ny #gmen #2rings" he tweeted (https://twitter.com/AhmadBradshaw/status/260258632749424640).
Although much will inevitably be made about this, there's nothing to see here. Football (http://www.giants101.com/tag/football/) is an emotionally charged game, especially at the highest level with the most supreme of athletes. Every week, especially close games like the one they were in on Sunday, emotions will run high and eventually spill over. That's what happened in week seven, but they'll be quick to move on from it as the team turns their attention to the Dallas Cowboys and week eight." Read more...

What makes it worse is that Bradshaw was in for 48 snaps and they ran him just 12 times. I'd be upset too. He may have said "run the ball" but I guarantee what was said after that will remain between him and Coughlin. I know coaches coach and players play but I am glad finally someone on this offense spoke up about the play-calling and/or the audibling done at the line. Don't get me wrong I trust Eli in every aspect of reading the defense and doing the right thing but sometimes the coach has to reel the QB in and tell him look we need to call some more runs or just move the chains in certain situations. You hate to temper the QB's desire to lead his squad or be aggressive but Eli is not one to get down because the coach may want to reel him in once in awhile. There's nothing wrong with coaching the QB up a bit when he needs it even with a guy like Eli who has accomplished all he has so far.

How do you not??? If I'm running the ball and someone misses a block which could've potentially sprung me for a touchdown I'd be upset. It looked like Cruz didn't even attempt to block his man. Granted, he didn't have to do it so hard and maybe should've handled it a bit differently but know Bradshaw he was fired up and in the heat of the moment. Plus...they did show Bradshaw approach Cruz and give him a hug or something like that later on.

I thought he was getting on Cruz for half-a**ing a block in the 2nd level that could have broken the run. I for one LOVE this! Cruz is a superstar but even he has to block, more power to AB for letting him know it. I think Cruz will look at the film and realize he was wrong and go out and fix it on the field. We need some emotion on Offense out on the field. Easy E is very cerebral and it is not in his character to get on guys, certainly not where anyone else will see or hear him do it. AB and Coughlin not talking about it after the game is also great to see. Let Eli be Hannibal Lecter, carving up defenses without his pulse going above 80...for the other guys a little fire from Ab can only help lol.

High emotions can be counter productive.

I think it was supposed to be more of a tap on the head going "C'mon baby!" but because he did it right when he got up, I think the adrenaline was still pumping causing it to look (and be) a little harder than intended. For that reason, and the fact he appeared to go up to Cruz later and say, "my bad," I find it excusable. It's not like he punched him out of pure anger/hatred.

BTW...anyone ever remember someone getting in Bradshaw's face in a game and yell at him? Outside of Coughlin, the only one I can remember, and this is crazy, is Eli! I remember a pass play a season or two ago where Bradshaw didnt pick up a blitzer Eli must have called out and Eli literally hitting him in the shoulder pads and yelling at him while walking to the sidelines.

Only a star elite Eli Manning with the clock ticking down in the 4th quarter could ever show RG how greatness really comes through as evidenced once

Bradshaw is a very intense, passionate dude. Sometimes that intensity can come out as misgiuded anger, but it's really his passion. Things like this happen over the course of a season. I'm pretty sure that All of this has been cleared up with Cruz, TC, coach Ingrham and anyone else invloved.

Cruz seemed to get the message too as he was deadly serious on his TD catch. Watch the replay of Cruz after the TD. He's ALL BUSINESS and not much celebration. Victor was clearly amped up. And I credit AB for lighting the fire.

Yes I really believe without AB's passion, we lose. The game was that close.

I've heard a lot of conjecture as to what got Ahmad so angry, but still don't know for sure.

"Giants were playing like crap", and "he wasn't getting the ball enough" aren't explanations.

If not for the win this non-story would be front page news and all the Bradshaw haters would be back of of the woodwork feeling validated for demanding his departure.

He said he wanted the ball that what it was about, he gets fired up and felt they could run on them.

You've got to love the passion for the game Bradshaw has, but yesterday he went too far. I doubt it will happen again. Team first, team last, team always.

He was a little more than fired up, he was down right pissed!

Good job from Tom Coughlin by not feeding the media any information for them to blow it out of proportion like Prince's bath dunking.

i like bradshaw and i understand wanting to win and wanting his carries, but he cannot get into screaming matches with the head coach or slapping his teammates out of aggravation- especially on game day in the middle of the game... he needs to be a team player, and not start trying to buck the system. toms the coach, and it looks really bad for the rb to be screaming at the coach in any situation. he needs to get back in line, or else brown and wilson will begin to see a lot more carries. i thought it looked bad. i think any time a player loses their composure, whether it be cams sulking, brady screaming at his coordinator, cutler screaming at his lineman, or this, it shows a break in discipline and a lack of control. needs to be tightened up by bradshaw immediately, and hopefully doesnt cause any weirdness in the locker room, or affect the w/l record.

If he were new to the team, or this wasn't typical I might be inclined to agree but to me - i've played sports and I know that feeling of just pure and total I AM FIRED THE **** UP and I have a strong feeling that everyone on the Giants not only welcomes this from him, but expects it. I'll take it every Sunday.

"He's like that in the locker room," tight end Martellus Bennett said of Bradshaw being emotional. "He's like that in lunch. He's like that in breakfast. He's like that in dinner. He's like that in the shower. He's like that in the steam room. He's like that in the training room. He's like that, if you're riding in your car, you've got to turn your music up really loud.

"Ahmad's just an intense person. He's a leader. Everybody leads differently. We have a lot of leaders in here. He's not Obama, but he's a leader."

I think Bradshaw had a point though. Why abandon the run? It's not like they ever trailed by two scores. Eh, whatever, they won. I do hope they give him the ball early and he sets the tone for the team. The guy is as tough as they come and is all heart.

Good job from Tom Coughlin by not feeding the media any information for them to blow it out of proportion like Prince's bath dunking.Funny to say it about a man his age,and with his storied career, but he has really matured as a coach.

The Tom Coughlin that was HC in Jax would have pulled Bradshaw and likely benched him permanently, The guy who first came to coach in NY might actually have been less tolerant, o the point of benching Bradshaw and anyone who supported him. lol.
