It’s safe to say that New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs had one of his worst years in the NFL last season. The entire Giants running game seemed to be injured or playing injured throughout the year. When the year was over (basically after the Panthers game) officially, the coaches decided to place a number of Giants on the IR list, Jacobs was one of those players to close out the season on the Injured Reserve list. Jacobs had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in January which begs the question of how well he will perform in 2010. Can he go back to that bruising, bully style of running attack that gave him his reputation in the first place? I think Brandon the Bull will be fine in 2010. He will be playing with a chip on his shoulder this year. I am extremely confident that RB Brandon Jacobs will rush for 1,000 yards this season. Who wants to bet against him?
RB Ahmad Bradshaw had some ankle issues and injuries of his own, after rookie RB Andre Brown was lost for the season in training camp. DJ Ware played in a limited role but missed a bunch of time due to injury as well. Hopefully, 2010 will prove to be a year when injuries are a non factor for the running back group. I truly believe that the Giants can return to form if they can find the missing piece, which is who will fill the Derrick Ward role from a couple of years ago? Can Andre Brown step up and do that? Brandon Jacobs runs too hard to be in the game for every single down. The running game in general needs some help from the third string and beyond.
