    Waht happens when these players return

    Hixon- Probably gets his job back, but will rotate with Barden

    Bradshaw- If Tom has any sense Brown gets the start and Bradshaw comes in when Brown has worn them down.....Brown on short yardage
    David so far has been a big disappointment

    Deihl- Maybe its time for David to play the back up role

    Canty- Will require a roster reduction

    Love the added competition flourishing in the Giants system.

    It will allow them to play the hot hand.

    You cant fool around with neck injuries, so I see the Giants starting Brown and working Bradshaw in a little at a time. I wouldnt be too hard on Wilson, he is only a rookie going into week 4. He will get more reps, and hopefully will continue to improve. Growing pains are to be expected.

    As for Diehl, I would not mess with the continuity the current line is developing. Diehl seems to be a team player that would be willing to be a quality back-up at this juncture in his career.

    At WR, I like Hixon, but would like to see Barden get some reps every game. The more reps Barden gets, the more his confidence builds. Plus Eli will develop a chemistry/rapport with him. Its a good problem to have at WR.

    Roanoke, you think the Giants would then carry 5 DTs in that case; Canty, Joseph, Bernard, Austin and Kuhn?
    One day, not today, not tomorrow, not this season, probably not next season either but one day, you and I are gonna wake up and suddenly we're gonna be like every other team in every other sport where winning is everything and nothing else matters.

    It's a great problem to have. I have never seen a Giants team that is more deep in the skill positions. And that includes the Jared Lorenzen Era.

    I agree....and the success of Andre Brown will hopefully help resolve whether the line has improved, once Bradshaw returns.

    Tough call on Hixon - Barden, not sure you can just ignore what Barden has accomplished over the past couple of weeks. If your a betting man do you give up on the hot hand?

    Sadly, I hope it is the improved line more than it was Brown that made most of the difference.
    Ideally I guess it could be a little of both.

    The worst news could be just a horrible D-line for Car............
    We'll know next week.

    Its pointless really to go over "what happens when" scenarios. This is football, there will be more injuries. These things will always take care of themselves.

    I like Barden on the outside, better than Hixon, while Victor moves into the slot on three wide sets. Hixon is the bigger downfield threat; but do you need another downfield threat when you've got Nicks and Cruz, not really? I'm sure we'll see both; but I think that building Barden's confidence is critical at this point. It boggles my mind that we have a guy with Randle's skill set, and he doesn't even enter the conversation. You've got to work him in too, he's not picking up any expereince on the bench.

    Diehl has to sit, there's no reason to mess with the success of the last 7 quarters.

    Bradshaw rotates, there's enough carries for both.

    Canty, Hard to get too worried about him the way Joseph and Bernard are playing. They can work him back in slowly and make sure his knee is OK. My guess is one of the young guys is going on IR with a minor injury.
