    I felt the same way. When he went down, I knew it was going to be tough sledding with Hakeem not 100%. Brown's effective running even on 3rd and 4 and 5 situations made up for problems in other areas of the offense. And I like how you put it, "We were (barely) able to work around every other injury".

    Yea, Brown would have likely finished the season with around 35-40% of the snaps, then 10% for Wilson, and the remaining 50% for bradshaw.

    Thats a fairly good mix. Though for next season I would like to see it more like 33% for each of the three. But injuries change that in a hurry.

    So that's why Webster sucked and was constantly picked on...

    The brown injury was the final dagger, but the Nicks injury is what stalled this offense all season.

    I like Bradshaw but he needs to be the # 3 I'm afraid. No better than # 2 I hope to preserve what's left of his feet.

    i agree! Brown was a beast when he played! i think his injury was a significant factor in us not making the playoffs!

    i look forward to him in the lineup next season!

    I just learned that if the Giants want him, which I am pretty sure they do, they only have to offer him (and three other ERFAs) a three year vet minimum and he/they have to take it of leave the NFL.

    If Bradshaw was healthy to play in Carolina, Brown would have never seen the field.
