  • Tom Coughlin: Ahmad Bradshaw Undergoes Battery Of Tests

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...-coughlin-says

    Excerpt: "NY Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw will undergo a battery of tests as the team conducts medical examinations over the next two days before taking a break during their bye week.

    Bradshaw said he underwent X-rays on Sunday but would not divulge on which area, other than to say it was not on his surgically repaired feet.

    Bradshaw also suffered injuries to his hand and neck earlier this season.

    "He'll probably have every test known to man here in the next couple of days," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. "We have a big medical day with our players. Today and tomorrow, they will be visiting the hospital and getting MRIs and whatever.
    "

    The whole goal right now would be to rest and have people healthy so that we can come back and be prepared to practice fully next week."
    Bradshaw has been held to one practice per week as he manages pain in his foot, a routine he has followed in past seasons as well."We've been down this road with Bradshaw many, many times," Coughlin said.

    "But until I am told any different or he tells me any different, we will just plan on him playing the same percentages going forward." Read more...

    Yet this guy continues to insist to play on Sunday's. I love Bradshaw, he is a warrior, but he is hurting the team playing hurt. Brown has shown a great ability to run the ball, catch the ball, and pass protect Eli. It's time for Bradshaw to sit. TC should also stop this guy from hurting the team any further... how you let this guy play when he is getting x-rays is beyond me. I swear if this doesn't change our run game is never going to get any better. Why put all this pressure on Eli give him some damn help.

      Well, there you have it, folks.

      Good luck with that.

        Feel the same. My fav player, but enough is enough. Rest the guy 2 or 3 weeks, and when he comes back play him a little more sparingly. Let Brown get touches.

        I don't understand. I don't understand.

            I get the idea that TC is feeling the heat, yet is squirming to find a way out of starting Bradshaw that doesn't involve admitting he was wrong. He's starting to feel more and more like Old Man Potter as the season wears on...

              BAD: Teams are daring the Giants to run the ball and the Giants keep failing to do it at the crucial points in the game. Ahmad Bradshaw's tough guy credentials can't be questioned, but you have to wonder if he's hurting the team by not allowing himself to heal up and he's now lost three fumbles this season on top of his middling results running the ball.

              UGLY: Something else Coughlin needs to answer is why he thought returning David Diehl to the starting lineup made any sense at all. Diehl was a turnstile on Sunday, just as he was against the Steelers, and the Giants line has fallen apart since he replaced Sean Locklear at right tackle.

                Is Diehl being treated for the tire marks left by Cincy running him over ?

                  This could all be very simply handled.....Coughlin could just state:

                  "Ahmad Bradshaw is a tremendous competitor, but we need to shut him down for a while, because we need him to be 100%....right now, all this work isn't doing him any favors. We need Andre Brown and David Wilson to step up while Bradshaw rests up."

                        I would like to see them let Brown take the majority of snaps going forward. Thrse is some evidence that they could be heading that way as Brown started the game yesterday and, I think, took more snaps than in any previous game in which Bradhsaw played. But what impressed me most about Brown was the height and distance he achieved on the goal line TD. Maybe I'm overstating it but he went up and landed 2 - 3 yards inside the end zone and was better than 6' in the air.

                        There is something to be considered about players like Diehl and Bradshaw. If we can assume they KNOW they are not up to the task the thoughts of ending their careers has to be devastating. They don't know anything else, if they have not invested wisely what are they going to do to earn a living. I can understand their reluctance to say "take me out, coach." The coach just has to pull the plug and I'm sure that's not easy for them to do.

                        I'm not saying I agree with them playing, just offering some thoughts on why they may not.

                          I agree with you guys wholeheartedly. Jacobs got benched for Bradshaw when he couldn't get the job done. Bradshaw is one of the hardest, dedicated running backs in the league, I mean that guy will fight for an inch...but.......something isn't right. Be it his legs, ankles, elbows whatever, he isn't getting the job done. Coughlin doesn't have to fire him, just give Brown a shot. Right now Brown is blowing Bradshaw away, and that isn't taking anything away from Bradshaw.

                          The team comes first, not Bradshaw.

                          Diehl......i love that guy, but it's time for Locklear to step in. He did a much better job than DD is doing, and I hate to say that, but it is what it is.

                            Do you think this is the only team that has injured players on the field?

                              AB ran great yesterday. Its the fumble that hurt us. I don't see how you complain about 5.7 yards/carry with only one run above 10 yards.
                              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.
