New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride made it clear on Friday why running back Andre Brown didn’t play much during last Sunday’s loss to the Eagles. He said they simply don’t trust Brown in pass protection.
“It’s all about gaining the trust and keep going out there every week and letting them know that I can pass protect and picking up all my blitzes,” Brown told The Newark Star-Ledger. “I just got to keep going out there and taking advantage of all the opportunities that I have and continuing to grow on that side of the game.”
Brown believes he’ll only get better.
“I’m progressing. I’m still going to go out there every week and work hard, and I know it,” Brown said. “I feel like if I continue to go out there each week and just continue to keep showing progress, I’ll be all right. Eventually, one day I’ll be out there and I’ll gain their trust.”
It looks like Brown will only get a few touches per game because of his inability to protect Eli Manning.
