  • Andre Brown competing for the power back job

    Read this this morning:

    "Andre Brown, who has bulked up to 240 pounds and who the Giants still seem enamored with."

    I can see why the G-men are enamored with him. I hope he is a beast at 240!

          I think Brown can be that bruising back we used to have in BJ. Then you have AB and Wilson as the shify ones and Scott maybe a little of both with great speed
          Football has been very, very good to us.
          After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
          But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

          # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

          1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
          2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
          3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
          4-New York Giants!!!
          5-NE
          Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            I really thought there would be a couple of guys that would have jumped on this with Martinek will be the power back...

                Brown won't even make the team this year.

                  I dunno. Tc has been very vocal about having that speed/power diversity dimension. If brownx at 240, with his jump cut style, he could be a bruiser.

                  Makes sense for him regardless. With the achilles injury, he prob realized speed isnt gonna be something he can rely on. Might as well bulk up and be a power type back.

                  He could surprise alot of us...

                  Bradshaw/wilson/brown n scott has a nice feel to it...suit up whichever makes more sense on gameday between brown n scott...

                  But browns gotta stay healthy if he hopes to make any impact, and hes struggled with that before so...

                    I'm leaning this way. If he couldn't break the lineup at a lighter weight I don't see him being successful as a different type of runner.

                      I don't see Brown being on the roster unless he runs like a wild beast in the preseason....highly doubt it.

                        Well, here I am. I can see more potential with Martinek than Ware, Brown. I hope he is given a good look.

                          We'll talk in September. At 240 and able to runs with power, oh and by the way he catches pretty well out of the backfield. Could be very interesting. Definietly will be watching him dureing the pre-season.

                            Honestly, I thought Brown was better in preseason play last year than Ware. I think the only reason he didn't make the team was because he was eligible for the PS, whereas, Ware was not.

                            I think the RB competition will be interesting this preseason. Can't wait to see our rookie on the field.
                            Do not feed the trolls.

                              Out of curiosity, how can a team be described as "enamored" with a player who they have cut more than once and who spent last year on their practice squad??????
