It looks like one and done for Bradshaw in Indy

Multiple sources are reporting that former Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw’s tenure with the Colts is over after just one season.

From Rotoworld: Indy Star beat writer Stephen Holder believes Bradshaw was the Colts’ best back when healthy in 2013, but Bradshaw’s lack of durability has made him a poor investment for NFL clubs. “If he does return, it will be an attempt to add depth, at most,” writes Holder. Bradshaw turns 28 in March. He’s missed 19 games over the past three seasons and underwent neck surgery in October.

I know what you’re thinking… and no, I don’t see him coming back to the Giants. As stated above, Bradshaw’s days as a mail carrier are over. He’s a complementary player — at best — at this point, but mainly he’s a risk, especially to the Giants who need to get it right this offseason.

It’s a shame, because Bradshaw had been one of the league’s best big-game backs in recent years. If he does not find a home by summer, the Giants may take his temperature for old time’s sake, but this could conceivably be the end of the line for this warrior.

“He is not only an exceptional football player, but he is the epitome of line up and play,” Tom Coughlin said last February after the Giants parted ways with Bradshaw. “Regardless of the circumstances, he’s going to give you everything he’s got. If you give the ball to him, he’s going to get every inch of what is there – and sometimes when it’s not blocked, he still gets it.”

Always good to win. Can still be much better.

Knicks got a gift from the refs on that 5 sec violation

Think we caught a break with that call

Can't figure out if getting half the scoring from the bench is a positive sign of depth or a negative with not enough offensive talent in the starting line up. Leaning toward the later.

Prigs is a gamer... If every player gave his effort this team could make some noise

Love the effort Prigioni brings

JR needs a couple minutes on the bench to clear his head

Free throw difference is outrageous.  Someone on this team needs to draw fouls and get to the line.

Could really use a big man who is effective at both ends of the court.

It's very early, but I'm liking Larkin. He could be an important contributor this year. With him and the reliable Prigioni we have to feel good about the PG depth.

Shame Shump had to come out, that was a good looking start for him.

Thank you TKB for 

1. increasing the article count.  They had been sporadic over the past year.

2. increasing the quality of the articles.  They were very poorly written over the past year, even if you don't admit it.

3. Posting in the threads.  Getting involved is great.  Even if its only 1 or 2 posts, it makes a big difference.

4....still waiting on fixing the "banning" system in the comments section, which bans people blindly and without reason.


Sadly, it took 80-100 posters to not post here anymore for the site to "wake up" to what it was doing wrong. Still, thanks for getting better and hope the site gets back to what it used to be.

More football comments from nine months ago?  C'mon folks.


I'm curious to see tonight how Fisher works our front line.  I'd love to see Acy, Jason Smith and Cole continue to get regular minutes, but that's bound to mean less time for Amar'e.  It's a dicey situation from a locker room standpoint, especially for a first year coach.  Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

@jsnooka Hornets getting favorable foul calls all game. You had to think it was going to even up at some point. 


It was a horrible call though.

@hawkeye in the amount of minutes amare played to score 17 and have a double double is fantastic. the depth is actually there, maybe not in large amounts, but in some very skilled players coming off the bench.
