        I havent seen any specific plays where Brown has completely blown the coverage. Or Wilson for that matter. Have you?

        I know what everyone will say "No, but we arent the coaches we dont see these guys in practice and we dont analyze the film as much yada yada yada"
        I know...I just would rather see Brown and Wilson get more touches. Kind of like how 5 years ago I was super hyped on Bradshaw and couldnt wait to see him get more touches.

        Its just a natural cycle and we should start it sooner than later the way our running game has been going...

          "Bradshaw played 58 of the 68 offensive snaps. Brown was in on just nine and had five carries for 14 yards.".................so much for "They are both going to get equal snaps theory"

          Sometimes the Giants coaches really want to make you pull your hair out.........they had all kinds of machinations about how Cruz was not ready for prime time too..........they had to be bludgeoned and dragged to starting Cruz by relentless injuries

            Yeah but if your going to throw it I agree Bradshaw should be in there but if your going to run it, let them split the carries. I know Eli sometimes changes the play to pass but at some point you have to chance it.

That is a ridiculously high bar to set and one that most RBs in this league can't even reach. Brown could use a little more improvement but he looks like after another game or two of experience with it, that he would be ready for a larger role in the offense.
              Exactly ^^^

                No. I just think at this point its worth the gamble to spark our running game. maybe we need to put a TE in to chip on the side of interest...something other than keeping Brown and Wilson to under 5 touches

                    Right. Protecting the QB is so over rated.

                          When Bradshaw got his shot, he would always miss his blocking assignments because he was always too busy looking for a screen pass.
                          Lets go, Giants!

                                There were a couple of scary whiffs. Dont remember which game they were in. I even feel like I remember one for a sack. All in all e didnt do terrible in protection while Bradshaw was out. It only takes one good whiff though.
