  • Andre Brown injury affected G-men season

    While looking at the 4 teams left and wondering why the Giants did not complete the 49er rematch with the Raven/Patriot rematch sets for the superbowl. the Andre Brown injury loom huge. Andre was one of the most consistent factors on this offense and when he went down you can tell this offense started to struggle, esp in the red(green) zone.

    Andre injured + bradshaw hurt meant they had really no one capable of pass protection. They clearly did not trust Wilson to do it.

    The ravens took full advantage of it sending DB pressure all game, which the backs have to take care of.

      It's makes it even easier for defenses when Nicks is playing injured and completely shut down with single man coverage.

        Agree with this 100%. I had a very bad feeling when he got hurt, for him and for how it would effect our O.

          Even if Brown stayed healthy, Gilbride wouldn't have used him enough to make a difference.

          Gilbride's mancrush on an injured Bradshaw was a major factor for the offensive struggles down the stretch. It's no surprise to me that the best late-season Giants performances includes a heavy dose of Wilson.

            That's not true, Brown was actually starting both halves of games when he got injured.

              Brown played 22% of the total offensive snaps for the season. And he missed 6 games.

                He took 27 % of the snaps in the Steelers game, 60% in the Bengals game, and 37% in the Packers game when he had 13 carries for 63 yards and a TD before breaking his leg. I think he would have continued to share the load with Bradshaw if he hadn't broken his leg.

                  Yeah; I dont know what 6 and 2 giants team you were watching but he was using Andre during that run with Bradshaw and remember; even though Bradshaw had some injury issues, Andre was also sidelined twice this season, with the second being the season ending. Brown had 8 TD with most coming on goal to go situations, when both Bradshaw and Eli could not get the ball across. To add more clarification on my initial statement. The season would ended with the Giants winning at least 1 or 2 more games with a healthy Andre Brown helping in on short yardage situations no matter how many more plays Ahmad would and should get. And those 1 or 2 game wins would be the difference in this team having a chance to defend the championship. With the 4 teams left; I still believe the Giants would have made another run. This group just fell apart due to many issues including injuries.

                    I agree. We were (barely) able to work around every other injury, but there was no satisfactory replacement for Brown. When he went down I lost all realistic hope for the season.

                      I felt the same way. When he went down, I knew it was going to be tough sledding with Hakeem not 100%. Brown's effective running even on 3rd and 4 and 5 situations made up for problems in other areas of the offense. And I like how you put it, "We were (barely) able to work around every other injury".

                        Yea, Brown would have likely finished the season with around 35-40% of the snaps, then 10% for Wilson, and the remaining 50% for bradshaw.

                        Thats a fairly good mix. Though for next season I would like to see it more like 33% for each of the three. But injuries change that in a hurry.

                          So that's why Webster sucked and was constantly picked on...

                            The brown injury was the final dagger, but the Nicks injury is what stalled this offense all season.
