  • Does Andre Brown get the start on Thursday?

    The guy was very effective against a nasty run defense. He runs with conviction.

    He deserves a chance, and I think the coaching staff liked what they saw from him today. I know I did...

      That will depend on Ahmad's injury, but I'd put him in before Wilson to see if he's a hot and cold player. Not a slam on Wilson.

          Same. Maybe Brown gets reps during the week as Bradshaw's backup. He's been around longer than Wilson, so he probably has a firmer grasp on the offense. Wilson, I think, has a more simplified role with the team right now in certain packages and/or plays. Brown getting hot early on probably had a lot to do with why KG didn't dial up plays for Wilson perhaps.

            Ride the hot hand with Brown. Plus he is a bit more reliable. Can't have a runningback with fumble problems in the game much when we're trailing and having turnover problems as it is. At least that's my view on it.

                If Bradshaw is out, Brown will def start. And I think he earned his spot as the number two back. He will see carries now. This is how you earn TC's trust as a RB. AB goes down and Brown took advantage of the opportunity.

                  Brown earned his blue jersey today, he also earned more playing time in the next game. "I gotta ring...."

                    That was all it was, he was hot and TC stayed with him.
                    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!!!

                      He should. He hit the holes he was supposed to unlike Bradshaw.
                      Torque it till it breaks, then back off a 1/4 turn.

                        Won't matter. If AB is out Wilson will get his fair share of touches by default

                          I definitely believe he deserves some carries come Thursday.

                            I think you see him as the #2 for sure. His style is different than Wilson, he's more North South and we know how much TC loves that smash mouth in your face game. I am getting a woodie here thinking about AB-Brown-Wilson and what could become a three headed monster. I love our passing game, but would love to just start imposing our will on defenses by smashing them in the face. Need this O Line to play consistently.
                            Just when I don't think it can get any worse, I think of you Ray. I have been to the abyss....thank you for helping me stay positive.
