Ahmad Bradshaw

Post  Big_Pete on Tue May 26, 2009 8:24 am

Don't be surprised if Ahmad Bradshaw isn't the #2 RB this year.

There is alot of positive stuff being said about Andre Brown and the front office is talking up Danny Ware

both have good work ethic and can impact in the passing game

Bradshaw certainly has the inside running, but there are serious concerns about his work ethic. He needs to imporve his blocking and fumbling, but he hasn't shown much improvement (and he has had opportunities)

Going into last year many expected Bradshaw to step up and be the compliment to Jacobs, but Ward was able to pass him on the roster.

Patrick Allen and Dwayne Wright reportedly have ability as well.

Bradshaw needs to work hard this offseason

If Ware and Brown can show enough in training camp, I wouldn't be surprised if a team traded fir Bradshaw (much like Ryan Grant)

Coughlin can help him work on his fumbling like with Tiki. I think Ward was the definite number 2 last year regardless and now this year it will be Bradshaw's spot. I wasn't happy with the lack of touches Bradshaw got in the playoff game last year, he needs to be more than just a return man. I'm sure Brown and/or Ware will get some touches, but not more than Bradshaw, IMO.

For sure he can improve, but at the moment he has ordinary hands and more importantly poor blocking. That makes him a something of a liability. I think this is why Bradshaw did not get a bigger role in the RB rotation last year; there is no questin that he can be a weapon with the ball in his hands (and a potentially bigger game breaker than either Jacobs or Ward).

Ahamd Bradhaw is something if an enigma. After the superbowl season many (including me) were expecting him to take the next step but that never happened. We all know that Bradshaw has plenty of ability and potential, but he hasn't improved despite having ample opportunities. There are serious flaws in his game (eg hands and blocking) that need to be improved. This comes through alot of hard work, which I have yet to see from Bradshaw; Going by what I have seem to date, I have to seriously question Bradshaw's motivation and work ethic.

Danny Ware and Andre Brown both have plenty of talent. More importantly they have very good work ethic. These are guys who will fight hard to get their opportunity. This is what is expected of all NY Giant players, particulalry under Coughlin.

Patrick Allen and Dwayne Wright reportedly also have some ability.

Perhaps Bradshaw will surprise me in training camp, but going by what I have seen so far, I wouldn't be too surprised if Ware and/or Brown replace Bradshaw on the depth chart.

Don't get me wrong I hope Bradshaw breaks out this year. With Ware, Brown and the others, the pressure will be on Bradshaw to really produce in training camp; hoefully this will bring out the best in him.
