Jacobs cuff?

Postby Venom » Tue Sep 02, 2008 10:58 am

I know there was a good thread about Ahmad Bradshaw vs. Derrick Ward and now I can't find it.

Anyone have a link?

I plan on picking up Derrick Ward off the waiver wire sometime around week 5/6.

i think if Jacobs went down you'd see a pretty even split, maybe 60/40 Ward with Bradshaw seeing goal-line

Agree with Dan here. Bradshaw probably is the better player but I don't see him as much of a feature back. Definitely a split and in terms of value Ward is easily the more undervalued.

If Jacobs goes down Ward and Bradshaw probably see close to an even split with some Droughns mixed in. Bradshaw is more talented than Ward IMO which is why I'd favor him. There are two other factors also. We don't really know how durable Bradshaw is but there's a pretty good track record to suggest Ward is not durable. Lastly, it's almost a certainty that Ward is gone next year so unless Ward is clearly outperforming him, I think it would make sense that the Giants favor Bradshaw to a degree.

Is Bradshaw in any danger of a suspension for the 30 days he served in jail?

He got cleared by the commissioner's office. There is talk of a calf injury now though... Guess we'll see tomorrow. :-o

Bradshaw never sniffed the field until Ward and Droughns were hurt. He had a huge game against Buffalo but so did Jacobs. I'd really lean with Ward here. Ward is built better to take the majority of the carries. Bradshaw doesn't even go 200lbs.
