Good article in Pro Football Weekly on getting Brown more work...
Should the Giants give more carries to Andre Brown and fewer to Ahmad Bradshaw? With Bradshaw back in the lineup in Week Four against the Eagles following the neck injury he suffered against the Buccaneers in Week Two, he was held to 39 yards on 13 carries. Bradshaw’s long run of the game was nine yards, and he had six rushes of two yards or fewer. It’s a small sample size — one week back from a scary injury — but the feeling around the Giants after their loss to the Eagles is that Brown, the catalyst in Weeks Two and Three, could get more opportunities......
I am very late to this thread but this one is easily solved. Brown needs to block better. He is plenty physical. He just needs to sharpen his technique a little and his recognition alot. Go Blue!!
No one remembers who came in second.
The same folks who knock Bradshaws TB performance before he had to leave the game (AFTER 5 CARRIES) give Brown a pass in in the Eagles game because he didn't get to touch the ball as much.
Last few avatars: Nicks, Bradshaw, Jacobs - who's the next future ex-Giant
I dont remember Eli being under seige the 6 straight Qtrs that Brown played.........I must be losing my marbles
2 of those were against TB who has a pretty decent D
Ok Ok I get it.....Brown can't block.....or Brown has bad blocking technique.....Guess what? Bradshaw has very bad running technique, he is emulating the great departed and ever in the tub- Brandon Jacobs.....no patience, no vision, runing right into his own blockers
a 100 + yards would do the trick.
I'd love to see it next week, but fat chance..... apparently Bradshaw is the second coming of Anthony Munoz....so they'll stick with the magic that has given us an 0-2 NFC East record.
he will play. If for any reason we fall behind and rely on Eli to throw the ball, AB #1 will be in the backfield. he needs to earn the trust of coaches.
