The Giants may have won the Super Bowl, but they certainly didn't get their as a result of their running game. This Giants' Super Bowl offense was completely opposite than the one that won in 2008.
In 2008, the Giants had one of the best running games in the league, and it carried them to the Super Bowl. This year, however, it was quarterback Eli Manning carrying a Giants offense with an almost nonexistent running game.
Both Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw, the two big runners for the Giants, have not produced as well as they have in the past. They also have not been as healthy as they used to be.
Bradshaw has taken the role of lead rusher over Jacobs, who has not been the same since he injured himself. It now seems that Jacobs is afraid to bowl people over with his brute strength, rendering him nearly ineffective as a runner when he tries to tip toe around people.
Bradshaw has proven a little more effective than Jacobs, but he cannot stay healthy. Looking ahead, the Giants are going to need to think of a running back to fill the void.
D.J. Ware might mature to be good, but he is not the answer. The Giants should consider picking up a running back in this year's draft around the second or third round.
