It was on WFAN, a local NY station tonight.


I would like to see Droughns and Jacobs on the field together. Plus droughns can obviously run/catch the ball.


I think having Droughns/Jacobs together on the field and both getting carrys is a good idea.

Plus the Giants tend not to really use the fullback much anyways.

Droughns has expeirence at FB also btw.

I've never even heard of Robert Douglas. What about Jim Finn? Wasn't he placed on IR? I'm not sure if it's the best move for them. Droughns has played FB before with the Lions but he's changed since then. He's a RB now. Anyway, It will give Ahmad Bradshaw a chance. He went to my highschool and I hope he haves a successful career.

Wow... I didn't see this happening but it makes sense as thats where he started his career playing.

This is huge for Jacobs.

I agree and as a Giant fan I am happy about this now that Droughns won't take many carries away from Jacobs who I believe is the future of our running game.

What about Jim Finn? What happened to him? Well, I guess theyd on't need a RB battle anymore, I think it's a good diea to have both of them on the field.

Ah, I never heard that. Confused I think Droughns and Jacobs could be better though, although Finn is pretty good.

It gives them two great backs in the backfield. Jacobs and Droughns.

He does have experience at FB but i doubt he is prepared to become a FB full time since for the last few years he has become accustomed to carrying the ball

In Denver the year he broke out he was a fullback but was switched to tailback due to injuries.
