New York Giants Running Back Competition is Ahmad Bradshaw’s to lose, according to Bradshaw. He spoke of his position as a leader of this team and the possibility of a younger running back stealing the job from him.

Bradshaw, 26 is going into his 6th NFL season, and he understands what it takes to maintain at the level that he needs to keep the starting job. After all Bradshaw is part of the Super Bowl champions. He also was a big part of their championship run, and will be the focus point for the Giants this season. However, rookie David Wilson has opened some guys with his camp performance so far, and the opportunity to impress people will continue to do so. Wilson has speed; he is able to bob-and-weave around opponents, which will come in handy every Sunday. He also likes making cuts so sharp and low to the ground it hurts your knees just to watch. The first-round pick out of Virginia Tech is going to erupt for some big gains in his first season, but he also may learn some harsh lessons with negative-yardage plays as he scoots rather than hits the hole.

However, that is where Bradshaw comes in, his leadership ability will help Wilson learn the ropes as a runner in the NFL, but don’t forget Bradshaw is still the main guy. He sees a lot of the same style in Wilson that he used when he came into the league. When I was young, I came in, and I was spinning a lot, doing a lot of different things that he does. Just with the fresh legs, you feel good, and you want to show your talents out there. However, everybody knows he’s fast, and he can make moves. It’s just the way he does it, and there are times when it’s not even needed.’’ Bradshaw said to the NY post. Head coach Tom Coughlin mentioned that If “David’s smart he would take a little bit of that’’ regarding Bradshaw’s advice. As for Bradshaw, he doesn’t mind the mentor role, but he’s not moving aside one step for the rookie.

When the Giants lost Brandon Jacobs, some worried the running game will suffer, but all I see is a better running back combo. Bradshaw will see the majority of the carries, and late in-game when the defense is tired he will be a force to be reckoned with. We may see the new addition of thunder and lightning in New York.
