    I think the giants did him wrong, if his injuries were soo bad why not put torain in? They likely ran him so much on that last game just to hope he would fail his physical so they would have a reason to cut him.

    But anyway the point is, he out rushed flip bad feet and all.

    No one is "ragging on" Bradshaw. The is no doubt his feet are a problem. If they weren't he would not have been released and the Steelers would have signed him. Simply stating facts is not "ragging." He was a great Giant and, unfortunately, those days are over.

    Oh come on - he was clearly overtaken by his emotions. Can't fault the guy for having feelings but that's not the heart people are talking about when they refer to how Bradshaw ran.

    That's not the same thing.

I think Bradshaw's best days are behind him and any perspective teams are going to utilize him in a specific role. He is not a 25 carry back with those feet and it would be hard to justify investing large sums of money in someone that will most likely be out during the season as history has shown.

    I know the argument will be...but if his best days are behind him why did he still break 1000 yards? Because he got much of those yards in 3 just over 100 yard spurts and one 200 yard spurt. The rest of the games were anywhere from 16 yards to 78. Very sporadic.
    I strongly believe that AB will be on the field for an NFL team by the time this season starts. I'm not looking for AB to be our # 1 RB anymore, but he COULD be our # 1 if Wilson gets injured and Brown doesn't have a good 2nd year in a row. And I'm saying this would have to be at the right price. My point is that if another team winds up signing him for $1M or less per season when he eventually passes his physical, I will believe that it will have been a mistake for the Giants to not have done the same for a guy who's always injured, but always playing injured and playing well. Not looking for him to be our # 1, but believe that he could step into that role if necessary and if he could return at a low price. And all of this is hypothetical because we have no idea what AB will be signed for or if he can ever even play again.

    AB at the right price, 100%!!! yes, you can't depend on him to carry the bulk of the load, but Wilson/Brown/AB/Scott is a solid RB field. Torian = ??? I'm for drafting a RB late round.

    I imagine he will be with a team, I just imagine he will be a roleplayer in a rotation and not the first guy on the field. He'll be back to what he was when Jacobs was 'starting' here....a change of pace type guy.

    Exactly. I loved AB, from the minute he showed his grit in the Buffalo game, '07. He is like Bavaro was when we didn't attempt to re-sign him. Unfortunately, It's time for us both to move on.
    AB's style is to run with every ounce of effort on every run. He punishes his feet pushing them with extreme effort every time he is being held up. It is not in him to just give up.
    If he gets well enough in another month, perhaps the Steelers take a flier on him. I doubt he'll practice, except to walk through plays. But, he learned our offense nicely and was always reliable on Blitz pickup... which tells me he can learn what he needs to in order to be dependable on Sunday. Ben will like his blocking and I see AB getting 6-8 carries and 3-4 receptions as an average.
    I wish him well. He will always be in my top ten all time Giant "Effort and heart" guys. Helped us to 2 SB's... No one can complain about what he gave the Giants
