  • Bet you did not know this- Bradshaw was rated NFLs best blocking RB last year

    "Bradshaw is a talented runner who can run on the front-side and back-side of plays, has the vision to bounce out into the open field, and he possesses an underrated game overall. It’s unlikely that Bradshaw’s running style appealed to Grigson the most, however. Instead it was his pass protection skills, a very important skillset that Bradshaw excels at and last year’s Colts running backs did not.

    Of the four running backs on the roster last season, only one — Mewelde Moore, a well-known pass blocker — graded positively (0.6) last year for his pass blocking, which he did on only 79 snaps according to Pro Football Focus. In comparison, Bradshaw registered a league-best 3.7 grade on a far greater 199 snaps for the New York Giants."

    I don't need stats or numbers to know how great Bradshaw was at blocking.
    Him and Clinton Portis were my favorites at watching running backs block.
    They had a "no fear" like attitude.
    Jacobs on the other hand is like the Incredible Hulk back there. He's bigger than some linebackers.

      it was mentioned numerous times in the beginning of the season when Wilson and Scott whiffed blocks.

        He still cannot block like the 60 lbs lighter Bradshaw could.........the Stats tell the story

              If this is another shot at Wilson, just give it up. Bradshaw was not a great blocker when he first came into the league, he worked at it and got better.

                MJD is another great blocking RB with no size.
                WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                  He was graded the best for two straight years by PFF. This is old news. Please make relevant posts before you are banned again. This doesn't need its own thread.

                    In that regard, he was a huge loss.

                      You realize in 2008, Ahmad was #3 on the depth chart because the coaches didn't trust his pass blocking. The funny thing that year is that a lot of fans were screaming for TC to play Bradshaw because we all thought he was our most talented runner. Unfortunately, his pass protection wasn't up to par. In 2009, Eli 'showed' Bradshaw up vs the Saints because he was lost in pass protection. It took until Bradshaw's FOURTH year in 2010 when he and really worked on his pass blocking skills and became an asset in that area.

                        Hey Manning lighten up a bit will you.........I don't need you riding my posts

                        Ignore them. All this talk of "Banning" is only going to get you banned

                        We are all Giants fans here and the fun of this is not to agree with each other but to challenge one anothers thoughts

                        our team was broken, I thought I had a good idea of why Eli was acting like Sanchez.......I narrowed it down to lack of production on 1st and 2nd downs and poor pass blocking in the backfield.......maybe I was totally in left field and its just a coincidence that BJ and Hillis have solved the issue........but its my opinion and I'm sticking with it.....and I hope the trend continues and actually improves when Andre comes back

                        I have nothing against Wilson, but I think in a pro offense he'd be better used as a 3rd down specialist and slot back........that has not been tried as of yet

                          Everyone and their mother knew that, including the Giants. The Giants also knew that he was a walking injury, which makes it no surprise that Bradshaw is now on IR.
