Would suggest that set to with T.C. also was a contributing factor for his release. Injury prone yes but still a hell of a player. Just my thoughts.

Maybe Tampa Bay will pick him up like Ward and Ware or 49ers.

Yes the NYG would or have never in my time as a NYG fan would put up with anything that Bradshaw pulled on the coach. They are far to classy for that.

That was nothing. Just two guys with a passion for winning had differing opinions.

TC has nothing but praise for AB im sure.

No real way of knowing, but I doubt it. TC has always loved Bradshaws heart and effort. I think it had much more to do with injuries and cost. And Reese in particular absolutely loves Wilson and wants him as the guy.

I feel he has at least 2 years left in him great blocker and pass receiver. He has been playing great for us for years with bad feet and ankles. Will see for his sake I wish nothing but the best for him.

Agreed....that was just two fired up guys making some sparks. TC and Bradshaw are cut from the same cloth when it comes to wanting to win.

It was simply time to move on.

Here's what TC had to say after Bradshaw was released:

"Ahmad Bradshaw was drafted 250th in a class of 255 and to excel and to perform the way that he has, and to accomplish what he has, is a great tribute to him," Coughlin said in a statement of the team's seventh-round pick in 2007. "He is not only an exceptional football player, but he is the epitome of line up and play. Regardless of the circumstances, he's going to give you everything he's got. If you give the ball to him, he's going to get every inch of what is there -- and sometimes when it's not blocked, he still gets it."

Exactly. I've never had the feeling that TC holds a grudge nor AB for that matter.

There is usually a lot of jawing that goes on, on the sidelines between players and coordinators and coaches and also that takes place in the locker room. If it would've been something that would've gone to the media instead of him then it would've been a problem. I think TC is probably one of those guys that respects a healthy rebellious attitude when he feels a player is giving his all.

It was a heat of the moment thing and that was it.

i think his exchanges with TC did it. his salary wasnt bad and as i see it (i may be wrong )we have his salary in dead money now so it didnt help our cap at all, (at least this season)
i do think injures played a role but i think quietly it was over TC.

We saved $2.75m by cutting him. His salary, two broken wheels, and 1st rd draft pick on the bench all had more to do with it than his little argument with TC. In fact, my morning constitutional had more to do with AB being cut than that argument.

i do think injures played a role but i think quietly it was over TC.I think his salary wasn't bad IF he was our projected #1 next year and IF we didn't have a big money commitment to David Wilson and IF we didn't have cap problems overall. I guess that means his salary was bad for us.

Did TC love Bradshaw's fire and toughness. Sure. But his loss of composure and whining about touches grew old for a player who was in his 6th season in the league. It was almost like he assumed Jacobs personality once he left for San Fran. Clearly TC had grown tired of Jacobs act.

Bradshaw is gone because of cap issues and Coughlin and Reese's faith in Andre Brown. Brown was going to take over as the starter anyway and was more productive than AB when healthy. This has nothing to do with his old feet or even Wilson IMO.

Not necessarily, plus Brown only played two games were he saw a lot of carries. He racked up decent yards against a terrible Carolina defense and then put up mediocre numbers against TB. His productivity was pretty average.
