Ahmad Bradshaw was the heart and soul of the New York Giants' offense. He was an emotional leader and productive year after year. He was also an excellent pass blocker.
In 2013 Jerry Reese and the Giant brass should have found a way to sign No. 44:
Indy 2013 stats - 183 yards | 4.5 yards per carry | 41 attempts | 2 touchdowns
NYG 2012 stats - 1015 yards | 4.6 yards per carry | 221 attempts | 6 touchdowns
All time stats – 4418 yards | 4.6 yards per carry | 962 attempts | 34 TD | 1129 receiving
Sure Bradshaw is missed by the Giants. But now the Colts will miss him, too. Bradshaw has been rules out this week with a neck injury. Newly-acquired Trent Richardson will take the first team snaps at RB this week, and I'm going to assume this a Wally Pipp moment for Bradshaw.
The reason why the Giants let Bradshaw go and did not bring him back was because they had David Wilson and Andre Brown in the fold and given Bradshaw's propensity for injury, the team felt it needed to move on.
As Deion Sanders always says, "You can't help the club from the tub!"
