They would run the ball better if Brown was the number one and Wilson and Bradshaw had about an equal number of touches. I love Bradshaw but not only can he not physically handle a big load, it seems like he paces himself and only runs hard when he's fired up - which is in big situations or after a big mistake. I cant deal with him any more man its driving me crazy
Wilson won't get touches until he convinces Coughlin he can block for Eli, and I'm ok with that.
I think Brown and Bradshaw should split touches fairly evenly, with Brown getting the bulk of the carries in the 1st half. Bradshaw still seems to be more effective in the 2nd half of games and less so establishing the run game early.
It just shows how bad Gilbride is. Andre brown again was running rele well but instead they kept going back to the injured much less productive bradshaw. I understand they want Ahmad to be the starter but open your ****ing eyes Coughlin when hes injured and falling to the ground after someone lays a pinkie on him we need to go with the hot hand.
Brown should have been fed the ball tonight.
Why doesn't the coaching staff realize that Bradshaw can't handle the full work load. We literally ****ed him for the rest of the season in 2 weeks where he got 60 carries and essentially ran him into the ground. He needs 10-12 carries a game, ideally later in the game, and let him do his thing as best he can.
I really don't get why Brown didn't get all the 2nd half carries. HE was the hot hand. Wilson fumbles, he gets 2 touches over the next 3 games; Bradshaw fumbles and they play him over the better RB of the day. No consistency there.
Brown is so much fun to watch; see the hole, hits it and when there's nothing there he doesn't hesitate, he just pushes for every yard he can get. Bradshaw ***** the bed.
Wilson gets one carry, one short game and then he disappears from the formations. I don't like it. That kid needs to be out there for a drive, not spot play. He's a big play guy, so give him a couple in a row until you get that big play. Or maybe he just can't block.....haven't seen him in pass protection yet....which sucks cause out of the shotgun he'd be a hell of a check down.
Love Bradshaw and appreciate Brown. However, Dallas would not nearly pay attention to the WR's as much if Wilson was running. Wilson is incredibly explosive and he can pick lanes. There is already a fear factor when Wilson has the ball in his hands. It's time to unleash him to help open up the passing games vs. teams who want to pay attention to it all game.
Gilbride calls the plays, Coughlin calls the starters. I agree with yankeeswin27 that both completely get away with murder week after week because they sneak in wins. If they were as good as everyone makes them out to be, we'd be AT LEAST 7-1, possibly even 8-0. And the games wouldn't even be close.
Like I said in another thread I actually like TC's conservative coaching style with his holding on to experienced guys, and so I do not mind him most plays to AB. The question in this discussion partially comes down to: Do you play the guy who makes the most big plays or do you play the guy who makes the least mistakes? And I think TC is a 'no mistakes' kinda coach, he feels that experience decreases the number of mistakes, and I'm not angry for that.
But besides this, I do share with you that I would be nice to see Wilson a little more often, especially at the end of the game and just a few plays here and there as a change of pace... Same goes for Randle btw...
