PLAYERS: David Wilson
TEAMS: New York Giants

The New York Giants finally have some exciting things going on in the running game: three 100-yard performances in the last four games, a healthy Ahmad Bradshaw, an exciting and explosive young up-and-comer in David Wilson, and a viable option in Andre Brown.

While Brown is just returning from a concussion, we're already day-dreaming of what this stable of guys could do if they all fit nicely into their roles, especially the way the offensive line is playing.

In Bradshaw, you have your workhorse. The Giants clearly trust him the most and he'll be the guy getting the most touches one way or another, as long as he's healthy.

In Wilson, you've got a a guy who has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is explosive: his kickoff return game is ace and he's ran for 5.8 yards per carry. The coaches have said they want to get him involved as quick as possible, and although it's been baby steps so far we're looking for Wilson's role to expand with every week.

In Brown, you have a guy who has proved he can be productive when his number's called. In the two games Bradshaw was hurt, he produced more than admirably and we don't think anyone around here doubts that he is talented enough to be productive in picking up any leftover carries. Worst case scenario, he's probably the Giants best option as a short yardage back and, if he can prove himself trustworthy in pass protection, as a 3rd down back as well.

Although it's not exactly clear what role each guy fits in to, it's clear that all three are capable of playing their part in the play. And we all know Tom Coughlin and Kevin Gilbride are big fans of using three backs…especially if the offensive line keeps playing the way they've been playing.

Just think, we might go back to the days of watching Eli Manning throw 18-25 passes in a ballgame…and no one will complain about it.
