Look at the toll that took on him for the last few games, where he was pathetic and pretty much limping all over. Brown can handle 10-12 carries a game at an effective level. Anymore than that, and his body will just not hold up over the course of a season.
    I want us to get back to the 2008 Giants offense where we had 3 legitimate RB's

      AB is a decent back who always gets injured and I think the Giants can do better, the problem I have with bringing in another back is if he isn't a good blocker he won't play so that has to be a priority with whoever we bring in here .

        That would be great, but I also want to see a young guy brought in who has the ability to be a 3down back and can handle 20-25 carries.

          Even if the 4th was some stud, you still have to have higher quality players behind him in case of injury

            We will just agree to disagree. Its all about the Oline, if that doesn't change, nothing else will on offense. We have to spend money and we have to spend it wisely.

              He runs well but I agree he can't carry the load by himself, no matter what jakk thinks...

                  TT was a guy who got hurt every year.

                    Andre is a good RB, but he isn't durable enough to carry the load as the featured back. Too injury prone.
                    One of these teams is not like the others

                      Regardless of Brown's ability and durability, we have a huge question mark in Wilson, and nothing beyond him. I can't comprehend going through the off-season and NOT picking up a running back. I would say RB is somewhere in the first four rounds of the draft, depending on who's available.

                        Technically, we only have Cox and Wilson. AB and Hillis are FAs. BJ is retired.

                          Wilson is not even a top tier Waterboy.......read the article

                          Brown makes yardage even with a bad line..........Wilson is DONE

                              Where did I mention Wilson? I am a Wilson fan but I know he is probably not going to be there next year. I want the Giants to upgrade that position. Andre Brown is not a starting caliber RB. Last 3 games 40 carries 69 yards. Yeah, he's top tier. lol

                                Thomas has three full seasons to his name, Brown has zero.
