    Considering the giants were in the bottom of the pack in rushing attempts I'd say no rb we had could carry the load. I think we need to look for a few new running backs. Connor should stay... I liked Hillis...

    The problem was we really will never know what the rbs will do. When kg was calling the plays he wasn't a running OC. We never gave a back or a committee an average of 20+ every game. They were always looking to make Eli and co. the source of the spotlight.

    It's cool with me but at the end of the day we need OL and rbs that can carry a load.
    I want to see Eli in a new system before I throw in the towel in him. He is smart and will adjust.

    That isn't true, they absolutely caned Brown when he returned. He had, what, 30 carries? They did the same with Jacobs and Hillis. They wanted to run.

    1 game? 2 games? Tc always preached balance. I'll bet there are very little games that we ran more than passed.

    Few teams run more than they pass, and that wasn't your original assertion. You said that KG never gave a committee an average of 20+ carries per game, yet the Giants averaged 21.5 rush attempts per game over the length of the season. From the Chicago (Jacobs) game onwards, they averaged 25 rush attempts per game:

    We didn't run because we couldn't run.
    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    No way no how. Brown is not a feature back. We need an upgrade.

    I question only his durability...not his heart or toughness. Unfortunatley though...no.
