    The giants only need a running back to do two things, block and hang onto the ball. This is why they did not not keep Jacobs and why they did not go after anyone else, they wanted people as cheap as possible. We signed a guy who was cut 7 times! including by us. That should demonstrate to you what the giants are looking for!
    Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

      I understand the frustration but they haven't been able to run on the Eagles for some time now. That and the fact they where pawing the ball a lot means Bradshaw plays more.

        That's actually not a bad comparison.

        TENN's O-Line is much better at pass blocking than run blocking...just like ours.

        And CJ picked up some bad habits dancing around and trying to create stuff that's not there -- just like Ahmad -- and for the same reasons, too.

        Since we're bad at run blocking, Andre's North/South run style would no doubt work better. But if he can't block as well as Bradshaw, you're pretty much telegraphing that it's a run when he's in.

            Unfortunately against the Eagles it's not.

            • I think he missed one block, a little over the top don't you think?

              • every once in a while a guy comes along- A Blackburn, a Cruz, a Stevie Brown............guys who come out of nowhere who have honed their craft, worked hard, and prepared themselves for achievment

                Andre Brown has the athletic tools and instincts to lead the NFL in rushing........Ahmad has been a mighty little warrior, but he does not have that kind of upside and is indeed slipping......also he is not a student of the run game, he is a student of the blocking game......he refuses to follow his blockers and have the patience that makes for a great not just a good runner.

                If we are to repeat as Champions new blood has to step forward, as some like Tuck and Bradshaw slip into decline.....this is not the 2011 Giants

                We have 33% roster turnover, and frankly we have one potential super star who has not yet played a down- Ojomo

                I'm good with this team. I think they are headed in the right direction........sometimes a little early season disappointment is a character builder

                I look forward to Eli hoisting another Silver Trophy this February.........LETS GO GIANTS!!!!!

                  Eli got sacked because Brown didn't hold the block long enough. It's not earth shattering, he'll learn. He acknowledges he needs to improve as does Wilson.

                    With all due respect, I wonder why you need to keep pointing out one missed block in 6 sterling Qtrs of tremendous play? Why?
                    Give the man his due......he is the best looking RB we have seen since Hampton
