  • Sorry DJ Ware I'm not a fan. What is the prognosis of Da'Rel Scott?

    I thought Ware was pretty good last night but that's all he is is average. He's never going to be anything more than solid.

    Ware also missed a big bitz pickup last night and he's supposed to be the Giants best backup RB in pass protection.


    I would take Andre Brown over Ware. I'd like to see what Scott has to offer. How he's progressed in protection and overall running.


    Anyone know the deal with Scott?

    I agree Ware will never be anything special. But, I havent seen anything out of Brown to make me think better of him either. After last night, I still think Ware is above Brown on the depth chart and may in fact have widened the gap.

    Scott needs to heal so he can show his stuff, and show he is over his fumble problems.

      Bradshaw is definitely our best back when it comes to blocking. According to ProFootballFocus.com he was the 2nd best pass protector in the league last year out of all runningbacks.

        That's supposed to say "next to Bradshaw".


        I tried to quote your post but it just keeps loading for some reason.

        But yea out of our backup RB's Ware is the best and he missed a bad one last night.

          Wares a shifty back that helped us out with conversions. I just don't see him as a number 2 starter. Scott needs more time out there.

          Ringing in the 2012 season!

            Seems "reply with quote" isn't working right now for some reason. Just keeps loading.


            So does anyone know what's wrong with Scott and if he will practice this week and hopefully play vs the Jets?

              I still think Andre Brown brings more of a power dimension that none of the other RBs have, and should be kept on the roster for that purpose.

              At this point I'm seeing us take 4 RBs, with the depth as Bradshaw, Wilson, Ware, and Brown...

                I agree there.

                  I thought DJ Ware showed plenty of power when he carried all those Jags for the first down near the goal-line. I think he's still the #2 until Wilson proves otherwise...

                      I don't remember DJ Ware missing a block. However, I do remember Brown definitely missed one and it led to sack on Carr.

                      Personally, I think Wilson is #2 already, though he may not get those snaps until the season starts. I think Coughlin will continue to assess Brown and Ware for the third spot by having them in the game before Wilson. So far, DJ Ware has the job over Brown.
                      Do not feed the trolls.

                        I'm not quite sure about #2 (unless Wilson's pass protection is THAT bad), but he at least showed enough to remain on the roster definitely... I was thinking that he and Barden should both be cut from the team, but Ware at the very least has shown he actually has some fire in there somewhere. If that story about how he used to slack off during offseasons prior to this year is true, that might explain it and we could see a resurgent Ware. I'm all for eating crow if that happens, since it means our running game improves.

                          One thing to remember about Brown is that he only played in the 2nd half of this preseason game...and that we've had plenty of guys in the past who have looked great playing in the 2nd half of preseason games (eg. Keith Elias) who end up looking terrible against starters and 2nd stringers...

                            you shocked me until i read the miss blitz pick up part, because i thought he ran the ball like a beast the other night. But if hes not making the right blocks then thats a problem. But after watching run the other night, i definitely want to see him get more opportunities. He looks hungry
                            Don't take it personal, we're just debating.

                              Ware is a solid 3rd down back

                              Barring injury there is no way Ware is not making the team. He is a reliable back that knows the offense and is always on the same page as Eli. The last spot comes down to Brown and Scott.

                              Eli Manning called RB DJ Ware "our best route runner out of the backfield" -- very important for a third-down back. #NYG
