Just cause a guy is on the bench does not mean he is in the doghouse - while everyone speculated that after the cowboys game (which may have been truen for a game or two) the main factor is picking up the playbook and picking up blitz protections. I would like to see him get some more touches as well but if he doesnt its not to say its cause he is in a doghouse - as jomo said AB is the guy they think gives them the best chance right now.
Coughlin has developed and played many a rookie from steve smith to hosley to J will to Eli to Chris snee.
The guys plays those players who are ready to play and gives the giants the best chance to win- and thats that. Is anyone else aware that rookies usually take time to adjust to the nfl = many of the greatest players have sat or seen limited time in their first years - on every team.
