Tell this one to New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin and he would probably just roll his eyes.
New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 23-carry, 129-yard, one touchdown effort Sunday night in a 17-3 victory over the Chicago Bears.
The honor probably does not thrill Coughlin, who was critical of Bradshaw for a late-game fumble near the goal line that cost the Giants an almost certain touchdown. Bradshaw has now lost three fumbles in four games.
We've stood up here and said it before - I love the kid. He's a great, great effort guy - gives you every ounce of...everything he's got he pours into it and there's not one person that would question that with this guy. However, that aspect takes away from it and you just hope that they learn, but he's been doing this awhile," Coughlin said. "The thing that happens is you get in the game, in the game you become more instinctive and occasionally the bad habits come roaring out. If it was something where the player was absolutely had had enough...when that takes place, I think we'll get what we want."
If Bradshaw keeps getting honors despite his fumbles, TC might find it that much harder to get what he wants.
