    With 3 minutes left and up by 14 points?

    I have no idea, no need to risk an injury. Let the rookie get some more time
    My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

        Career day for Bradshaw. Get him on the sidelines and rest him up for next week.

          Game is in the bag, and Andre Brown is on the bench all game. What to hell is going on with this team. You've got a good young back that carried you two games, and he doesn't even get mop-up time in a game like this? THIS IS TOTAL BULL CRAP. It's almost like Gilbride and Coughlin won't play Brown because the press and fans questioned thier wisdom in using Bradshaw exclusively. Martin comes in, gets one carry, and we don't see him again the rest of the game. This is the time to see what Martin can do, don't put him in one play then let him sit the rest of the game! Just can't believe the way they use their players. Robinson didn't get in a TE that I saw either. I just don't get it.

              Andre Brown was hurt in the 1st quarter, "Andre Brown won't return with head injury, Giants announce."

                Brown was injured and ruled out for the rest of the Game. I don't know who Martin is...The Tampa Bay RB? you mean Wilson right? Guess they wanted Bradshaw to end the game as a reward for running hard.

                As for Robinson, I have no issue with that. still a project rookie.

                Man the things people complain about
                "...two minute drill at the end of each quarter, Ya'know with the wind like this blowing mooch and marshall into the ocean...If that's behind me I think were getting 3 from 70 so holla at your boy. IF YOU DON"T PICK ME THAT'S A JOKE RIGHT?" - Justin Tucker, Ravens kicker

                Complain?, ain't Nobody got time for dat!

                GO GIANTS!

                    Because in my opinion he should be proving to be more than a one-game wonder throughout the game

                        It may seem cheesy but i think they were trying to get him to the 200 mark. Big milestone for a back to reach. Quite a few do have a 200 yard game, but few who are considered backups, or part of atandem do. I think its a nice feather in his cap, especially for a guy who has been had longevity and health issues.

                          Oh, that makes total sense. My bad.

                              I meant Wilson. I never saw where Brown got hurt, which explains his absence, I hope. Still not understanding why Wilson didn't see a lot more action. More so even if Brown is hurt. Brown's hurt, so you're possibly down a running back, and you're up by a lot; it seems like the ideal time to rest your starter and get a guy you might be relying on as your number two man next week some playing time.
