    Giants' Andre Brown can run, but he can't block

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...ust_block.html

    Excerpt: "The Giants planned that running backs Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown would split the snaps, and carries, at about 50/50 last week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    But Bradshaw played 58 of the 68 offensive snaps. Brown was in on just nine and had five carries for 14 yards.

    On Thursday, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride gave the simple answer: The Giants don’t trust Brown enough in pass protection, and they had been forced to throw more than they had planned.

    Brown knows that’s the case and is looking to improve as a pass blocker." Read more...

    you're right. Lets just let ELI get murdered in the backfield....

    TC and KG are protecting their greatest asset. that is all.

    You might be right, I'm just annoyed with it. Wilson cant play back there because he cant pass block. Now Brown apparently can't pass block. its just fristrating and I find it hard to imagine that backs like AP in his first year, Trent Richardsons first year, Doug Martin this year, etc. are really that much better at pass blocking than Wilson and Brown that their teams will let them get extended playing time and ours wont. It seems like a cop out

    if Wilson and Brown want more carries....they need to earn it...Eli will not be injured at their expense.

    I havent seen any specific plays where Brown has completely blown the coverage. Or Wilson for that matter. Have you?

    I know what everyone will say "No, but we arent the coaches we dont see these guys in practice and we dont analyze the film as much yada yada yada"
    I know...I just would rather see Brown and Wilson get more touches. Kind of like how 5 years ago I was super hyped on Bradshaw and couldnt wait to see him get more touches.

    Its just a natural cycle and we should start it sooner than later the way our running game has been going...

    No. I just think at this point its worth the gamble to spark our running game. maybe we need to put a TE in to chip on the side of interest...something other than keeping Brown and Wilson to under 5 touches

    But the "gamble" is Eli's ability to stay upright. Worth it?
