The New York Giants are recognized as one of the better rushing teams in the NFL. They’re led by the two-back tandem of Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw.
Bradshaw, who is significantly smaller than Jacobs, wound up having significantly more carries last season.
“I think Brandon ended up with maybe 150 carries (147), maybe he should be a 200-carry guy,” Giants senior vice president and general manager Jerry Reese said. “We gave Brad (Ahmad Bradshaw) probably too many carries (276). He’s a little tough guy, maybe too tough for his own good. You like that about them, but you give those little guys too many carries, at the end of the season, you can start to see them slow down.”
