Thread: Time to sign Ahmad Bradshaw ...

  1. #1

    Time to sign Ahmad Bradshaw ...

    He can be our main running back while splitting carries with Powell and McKnight. He's a legit #1 and he runs as hard as anyone in the league. Versatile guy who can block and stats don't show his true value. Get him ...

    Yes he has foot problems but we managed Landry exceptionally well this past season. Bradshaw is worth adjusting for like Landry was. He would be huge for the offense ...

    How could he be the main running back and split carries with two other guys?

    Better yet ... Lets sign TERRY Bradshaw ... He's about as useful.

    I like Bradshaw's toughness and 4.5ish yards per carry. But the guy fumbles (3 lost this past season; 10 over the past 3 seasons), is hurt often and will cost more than Powell and a rookie RB draft pick combined. Not needed.

    Chronic foot problems. Coming off surgery.

    I'm not a Giant hater as many of you in NY/NJ understandably are, and I love all football so I catch as many games as I can, and the one thing that many people are missing in their analysis of Bradshaw is just how much of a malcontent the guy is.

    Normally, I'm all for a guy who just wants to win, even at the expense of being a jerk (see my numerous posts about Jay Cutler)...but on a rebuilding team like ours, with youngsters and no decisive leader, it doesn't make sense to have a jerk RB (much different than a jerk QB) up in age and mileage, with serious injury concerns, looking for some good money.

    Add in the fact that this is a very good draft class for a WCO RB in later rounds, and its a no-brainier to pass on him, even if he is decisively better than anyone currently on the team.

    The RB class in this year's draft is strong. So what should we do? Sign an overrated, injury-prone back who will probably want more money than we can afford.

    Stop it already.

    Yes, he's a good player. But a good draft pick can do what he can do, and for less money.

    Yup. All the guys who were moaning and bewailing the Tannenbaum method seem more than happy to jump right back to it in their desperation for anybody that is not a Jet to sign with us. We used to be busy picking up the Pats' garbage, now we seem obsessed with Giants' garbage. Build through the draft. Especially RB's. They don't last long and they need to be young.

    Every time a player, who has seen success in some form, is cut from another team - people on this forum insist the Jets should sign him to solve that particular position problem on the team.

    Why should the Jets acquire other teams' garbage?

    Alex Smith makes more sense than Bradshaw, and Smith is a bad, knee-jerk idea as well.

    It's like clockwork with Jets fans.

    With all the crappy FA signings by the Jets, you'd think the majority of fans would focus on the draft instead.

    People think the Jets are a few players away from the playoffs.

    Truth is, the team is awful. It needs a major overhaul. Even if you brought in Peyton Manning, there would be tremendous issues left open.

    Jets are in rebuilding mode. Look at the draft, and work hard to improve yourself.

    ... and some who have seen little or no success.

    You stole my thunder, John.

    Why must there be a thread to sign every player who is cut from another team??? Maybe we could put an end to this nonsense by just having one sticky thread entitled "Sign these beasts!"
