RB Brown learns to be a pro

Posted by Dan Salomone on November 13, 2012 – 5:00 pm

During the assistant coaches’ usual bye week availability to the media, Jerald Ingram stood in the hallway of the Timex Performance Center last year talking about his running backs. Andre Brown’s name eventually came up.

At that time, Brown was a member of the practice squad with the primary responsibility of preparing the defense for its next opponent. It’s an integral role on the team, but Brown was waiting for more. Ingram, a 21-year assistant to Tom Coughlin, knew he had to keep him motivated.

So he laid out the example of Ryan Grant, a former scout teamer for the Giants who went on to have back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and win a Super Bowl with Green Bay.

Fast-forward to Monday and there Ingram stood in the same corridor in between the weight room and locker room with his pupil tied for second in the NFL in rushing touchdowns. The other NFL backs with seven scores: Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, and Doug Martin.

Not bad for a 25-year-old who has been waived eight times by five teams.

“We’ve seen him develop in our program for the last three years or so,” Ingram said. “And that’s the reason we drafted Andre because when he came out of N.C. State, we thought he could be an every-down kind of guy. He caught the ball well there. He has the great size. He’s got good speed. He just had to have time to learn our offense, and he’s a young rookie out there that’s developing.”

While he’s technically a third-year player, Brown, the Giants’ fourth-round draft choice in 2009, had played in just four games with minus-one rushing yard heading into the season. Through 10 weeks this season, Brown has 60 carries for 321 yards (5.4) and 12 receptions for another 86.

Like all backs in the system, he had to first earn the trust of the coaches. He learned how to do that from Ahmad Bradshaw, who learned from Brandon Jacobs, who learned from Tiki Barber and so on.

“He’s a little brother to Ahmad Bradshaw,” Ingram said of Brown. “Ahmad has taken him underneath his wing, and he’s learning the game now as opposed to just cards in practice and situations and how to help the offensive line and little techniques that Ahmad uses. There are subtleties that never get spelled out that you see that Ahmad does that defenses are like, ‘I don’t want to get cut by him, I don’t want to get chipped by him.’ There are little things as a pro that these guys are learning through Ahmad.”

    What is Brown going to learn from Bradshaw? How to fumble?

  2. By Paul Grenada on Nov 14, 2012 | Reply

    As much as they may have to learn about the position. There are some things they KNOW how to do. But they don’t get to use it.

    Bradshaw is being run into the ground. Let the young boys pound away at a defense for a while, instead of having the defenses bang on Bradshaw.

    It is time to turn Bradshaw back into a third down back. Brown is hungry and runs harder and with more conviction that Bradshaw. I have loved his tenure, but it is time to try something new. Brown just might be the spark this offense needs to get rolling.

    I would like to see the Giants give both Brown and wilson more carries. With a sryggling running game it could unight a spark that the giants need.

    I agree with all of you. When Brown starts, there’s a different “pop” to the offense. And they keep running screen plays with Bradshaw that Wilson could probably take to the house. Other teams use ALL there backs I don’t know why we can’t. But I’m sure if we can all see that, the coaches can. Right?

    Brown has played well when given a chance Ahmed Bradshaw just doesn’t measure up…He is NOT fast (maybe foot injury) can’t break tackles,and does Not change gears etc..Brown runs as IF HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!..He IS BIGGER, Faster,stronger,than Bradshaw..Eli becomes a absolute Super Star!..Remember the Tampa game?..Bradshaw was hurt when Brown started to run well and it gave Eli a REAL option..(500 yards later) VICTORY!!! Carolina Game is the only game he started and played whole game 113 yards and Giants WIN 36-7..Wilson is a good back..and once given a real chance the Giants will have a PROBLEM OF TOO MUCH TALENT (Good problem to have)..Bradshaw is a good blocker ..put him in on 3rd down only!..First game back after bye GREEN BAY ..”Hello Mr. Rodgers”..We also play Baltimore, Atlanta, New Orleans,…I don’t think any more real debate is needed…GO BIG BLUE!!!!

    As much as I love Big Blue, I just don’t seem them winning against Green Bay, Baltimore, or Atlanta. We are relying too much on Eli to go gown the field and not using the talent they have like Brown…how bout short passes…let’s get first downs and worry about the long pass when we are ahead in the game. Let’s go Big Blue you can do this!!

    Brown is a disciplined running back. He runs what he is supposed to, trusts his blockers, and hits the hole and lets it develop.

    Bradshaw is not patient, doesn’t trust his blockers, always tries to pop it outside and fails. He does not have the speed of Bo Jackson to bounce it outside like he always tries.

    The blockers block better for Brown, BECAUSE THEY KNOW HE WILL RUN WITH WHAT blocks they provide!

    BROWN has GREAT VISION. Sees a small glimpse of DAILY LIGHT and hits it! GREAT VISION. Some backs just don’t have vision to see things and hit them quick like brown.

    AND FOR GOD’S SAKE, CAN WE GET BROWN OFF OF SPECIAL TEAMS, BEFORE WE HURT OUR NEXT GREAT RUNNING BACK?

    take Brown off of special teams before you ruin him! He already suffered one concussion on special teams already…

    why is it that the Giants always put star players on special teams to ruin them? aka Jason Seahorn????
