    Giants' Andre Brown will likely play behind Ahmad Bradshaw, who returns from injury this week

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1167519

    Excerpt: "Andre Brown may have revived the Giants’ rushing attack over the last two weeks, but Ahmad Bradshaw
    is now ready to take his job back.

    Bradshaw was cleared by doctors on Monday to return to practice this week, according to a source familiar with his situation. Bradshaw missed the Giants’ win in Carolina on Thursday with a sprained neck that he suffered early in the Giants’ win over the Buccaneers on Sept. 16.

    Since then, Brown has more than adequately filled in for Bradshaw, rushing for 184 yards on 33 carries and an impressive 5.6 yards per carry with three touchdowns. Bradshaw is averaging 4.3 yards per carry (22 carries, 94 yards), though that average was boosted by a 33-yard, garbage-time run on opening night." Read more...

        his pass protection is better and Babin and Cole are dangerous, so it's probably a smart move, but like everyone im excited to see if Brown can pick up where he left off against a legit D ... Brown will get a good number of carries, IMO ... maybe 15-18

          I say give both equal opportunities until one proves that he can run better against the Eagles D, then stick with that guy. Brown probably will do a better job of running between the tackles, which is probably a better way of run-attacking that D, as opposed to bouncing it outside.

            No different to when Jacobs was with the team. Brown will get his chances.

                i think AB1 as the #1 is proper. AB2 hasnt shown enough (yet) to be the #1 imo!

                it is a good problem to have especially if both players are buying in.

                i look forward to this duo carving defenses up!

                  Bradshaw is clear to practice, don't know if he will be ready to fly on Sunday so expect to see Brown in there. If Bradshaw does suit up I think he will be limited until he is fully healed.

                    I'm just glad this showed us how much depth we have. The ABs will hold down the fort.
                    The Problem is the Oline, PERIOD

                      Brown's Yards After Contact is 3.7. That is the average the led the entire NFL last year. And from what I've seen, he has shown more than enough, and more than Bradshaw.

                        Brown is going to play no matter what Bradshaw does or doesn't do.

                          The key could be the revamped offensive line. How much does that affect the equation?

                            Location of first contact evaluates the OL, Yards after contact evaluates the RB.

                              We will find out this week. If Bradshaw can't move the ball this week, but Brown can I expect a lot of people here being ready for Bradshaw to take a backseat to Andre, right or wrong.
