Giants will go with the hot hand at running back

New York Giants offensive coordinator  Kevin Gilbride indicated on Thursday that they’ll run the ball with whoever has the hot hand, whether that’s Ahmad Bradshaw or Andre Brown.

“He’s really played well,” said Gilbride, per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “He’s gotten opportunities that probably would not have occurred if it wasn’t for the injury to Ahmad. He did just what you pray as a coach that a guy will do when a chance presents itself. He goes out and made some plays. He’s really changed the dynamic of our run game. He’s run the ball very very well both games. So yeah, he definitely earned the right to get into the mix. He’ll play some. It’s just a matter of us trying to get a feel what plays certain guys run a little more effectively than others. And you’re always hoping somebody gets hot and you feed the hot hand.”

I think Brown will end up getting more carries because he made the Giants offensive line look really good over these past two weeks.  Even when Bradshaw played in week two against the Bucs he didn’t run well.  Brown’s patience in the hole enables him to be effective than Bradshaw.
