Once upon a time, the New York Giants had the number one running attack in the NFL. A lot of those same players are still on the team. They were banged up in 2009 but have rehabbed nicely and are preparing now for the upcoming season. Brandon Jacobs is the number one guy on the team. He is backed up by Ahmad Bradshaw, who is often the spark that lifts the Giants offense in crucial moments. Brandon is the bull and Bradshaw is the lightning. RB Andre Brown, who missed his entire rookie season to an injury, is said to be coming along nicely and should play in 2010. Gartrell Johnson ran hard with the limited game time I saw. I believe that Brandon and Bradshaw will get their groove back in 2010. I think they are going to be owed a lot of apologies when it’s all over. Opinions have varied greatly on this topic alone, what do you think?
Jacobs and Bradshaw played injured for most of the 2009 season. They were not used properly in a lot of strange situations but still tried to finish out the year. I expect a rested Bradshaw to have an outstanding 2010 season. A lot of noise has been made recently about the Giants possibly drafting RB CJ Spiller in round one. I would not be upset if this did occur because Spiller is a great talent and I don’t know if GM Jerry Reese passes on this kid for LB Rolando McClain if he’s available. If the Giants draft a RB that almost certain means that RB Gartrell Johnson will be cut shortly thereafter.
What do you think about the current New York Giants running back situation? Is there a RB draft pick you have in mind and in what round?
Here is a list of the current New York Giants Running Backs:
1. Brandon Jacobs #27
2. Ahmad Bradshaw #44
3. Danny “DJ” Ware #28
4. Andre Brown #22
5. Gartrell Johnson #33
