Report: Ahmad Bradshaw Unhappy With Giants’ Pass-Happy Play Calling
NEW YORK (WFAN) — Is there trouble brewing in Big Blue land?
Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride appeared slightly critical on Thursday when assessing the team’s signing of wide receiver Brandon Stokley.
Then running back Ahmad Bradshaw returned the favor — right back at Gilbride.
According to the New York Post, when Bradshaw was asked about the offensive play calling in Sunday’s 28-14 loss to Washington, the veteran “waved his hand in disgust.”
“I don’t want to see nothing like that,” Bradshaw said of New York’s seven rushing plays in the second half. “We love to run the ball, and I think we have the best backs in the league.”
Bradshaw carried the ball six times to Brandon Jacobs’ one.
Jacobs, normally the fiery one, has just a single thing on his mind.
“I just want to win,” Jacobs told The Post. “Six carries or 26 carries, it doesn’t matter.”
The Giants ran the ball 20 times against the Redskins. Bradshaw said if the backfield’s workload increases, good things will happen.
“Just being a running back, we know what we can do with the ball in our hands,” he said. “We know how much it opens the offense up, and it’s a lot better to go with second-and-5 after a run than having to throw when it’s second-and-10.”
For now, Bradshaw — and Giants fans — will have to wait and see how Gilbride runs New York’s offense Monday night against the Rams.
