  • What do you think the mix will be between Bradshaw, Brown, and Wilson?

    You think they'll go with another 85% / 13% / 2% snap mix like in the Eagles loss, or get Brown and Wilson into the gameplan?

    I think we will slowly start to see Bradshaw getting less of the workload, but doubt we will see him go less than 50%. How the other 50% would break down will depend on how well Brown and Wilson do individually.

    I don't know that Wilson is very good in pass protection, but I think we will start to see him getting more of a role in 3rd down passing situations, similar to how Megget was used. He could end up being a major threat in those quick passes coming out of the backfield.

        It really depends on whether we actually have a running game or not.

          65%/25%/10% seems like an ideal place to start at. 1 snap isn't going to help anyone get more opportunities when the defenses know what you are in there for. By the end of the season, I'd really like to hit the 20%/40%/40% mix

            It also depends on who we are playing and how the hot hand is running that day.
            No one remembers who came in second.

              ppl need to realize what situational football means...u cant break down how the carries will look before hand...well i guess u could but what ud really be doing is predicting what situations we'll face % wise.
              meaning, if we continually have 3rd and long situations, its tough to get wilson in.
              if u have a bunch of 3rd and shorts, wilson/brown would have more situations he could be used in.
              the score, how the OL is doing, how the rb's are doing...theres too many variables for someone to break down "bradhsaw-83%, brown-12%. wilson-5%"...at least imho.
              if its a close game, i'd expect 44 to play a majority bc of his experience...

                  Whether it is injuries, wear or scheme Brown is a better back than Bradshaw is right now. He makes decisive cuts and get N/S real quick. He should be starting and Bradshaw should be spelling him. Bradshaw was best when he was getting 30%-35% of the carries.

                  Wilson is a ST star and a dud in the offense. Let him focus on returns for now. Give Scott reps when we need a change of pace guy. He has a year in the system and should be ready for a bigger role

                    Definitely a situational thing. It will be based on who creates the best mismatch against specific defenses and exploiting their weakness. There won't be specific percentages...and it might be from game to game. The problem is that no one has shown to be a clear number 1 though I think that Brown has shown the most positive, where Wilson has shown the most positive in kick returns.

                    Wilson right now is serving his apprenticeship and taking lumps on Special Teams.

                      I don't know what the problems are with the running game, but I was surprised we didn't use Brown more against the Eagles.

                        I was wondering the same. I am wondering if the coaches saw something that made them think Bradshaw would be better v. the Eagles or they held on to the belief that a player cannot lose his job due to injury? I think they should've sat Bradshaw at least another week and ease him back in as an excuse to see more what Brown could do. I know he was cleared by the doctors but I am sure they could've milked it.

                          I don't think we will see much difference in the Brown's game.

                            During giants Rewind, Carl Banks mentioned if AB1 stayed behind Baas and didn't bounce outside that play at end of game when he got only 1 yard prior to the barden PI play it would have gone for 7/8 yards easy.That's what the knock on AB 1 is. Not willg to let play develop and always try's to dance outside. Had Andre brown been In game we prob win. He would of followed the block and ran right behind baas and then we are in a whole differs position. Instead of 2nd and 9 it's more like 2nd and 2/3 yards. It would have certainly changed the thought process for the next play.
                            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-

                              i think its nuts that its not more 50/50ish.. To be honest, i'm in favor of Brown getting the work untill he prooves he can't handle it.. The guy runs through holes hard and don't skip around... I appreciate bradshaw, and hes solid, but hes injury prone, and why not try and keep em alittle healthier?
