  • Bradshaw - once again, not practicing

    I predict another mediocre performance Sunday. I hope I'm wrong.

    This will mark the 3rd game he'll get the nod without being able to practice with his offensive line. The last 2 games have been unremarkable (78 yards / 3.6 ypc v. Cowboys.....43 yards / 3.5 ypc v. Redskins).

    Tomorrow would be a great day to see a heavy dose of Wilson and Brown.....but I'm not going to hold my breath.

      44 can play well with limited or no practice. Same thing for 88. Not at all worried.

        I'm starting to think he really might not play we will see. If he hasn't practiced all week I do not see how he can possibly be effective. It's gotta throw the offense off a little when you practice the whole week with Brown and Wilson then all of a sudden Bradshaw is playing.

          Bradshaw needs a game to rest up. We saw that last year with his durability concerns. If not tomorrow's game, let him rest for the Bengals game so he has 3 straight weeks to heal up before the Packers. The Bengals have THE worst MLB in the league with Rey Maulacrapa so I think we're safe to allow Andre Brown and David Wilson in as the starters.

            At some point Bradshaw has to realize if he isn't close to 100% he is hurting the team by playing. I think Eli & co. can manage without him for 1 or two games.

              wasn't it Parcells who said if a player can't practice he can't play, wonder what happened to that theory

                Bradshaw is an enigma you think that since she's not practicing he'd be fresh for the game and play at a high-level but it seems he is not effective during the games because of lack of practic

                  I agree.....when he's healthy and able to practice with his line, there is a noticeable difference. Last week, he looked out of sync.

                    Give me Brown and Wilson. That's the 1-2 punch we really need.

                      Last week he faced a good run defense, the same one he faced the first week.
                      Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                        Who were missing their best defender and he still did jack.

                          Eh, the run blocking wasn't exactly great against the Cowboys either. Locklear and Bennett were getting dominated at the LoS in the first quarter that led to so many 3 and FGs. Bradshaw still needs to take a game off here very soon so he can get some actual rest.

                            We'll have to wait and see, but he played most of last year the same way; of course we didn't have much of a run game!
