NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw and head coach Tom Coughlin had a confrontation in the second half of the Giants’ 27-23 win over the Redskins on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
What did the two discuss?
Coughlin, as one would expect, didn’t divulge.
“That’s between he and I,” the two-time Super Bowl-winning coach told reporters in his postgame press conference.
The two exchanged words following a play in which Giants safety Stevie Brown picked off a pass thrown by Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who was brilliant for Washington in the loss.
Coughlin wasn’t the only recipient of Bradshaw’s apparent rage on Sunday. The running back was seen shouting at wide receiver Victor Cruz following a 15-yard run, and he later slammed his helmet to the ground before getting into it with running backs coach Jerald Ingram.
The former seventh-round pick out of Marshall, who is currently dealing with a foot injury, didn’t have his most dynamic game on Sunday. He found the end zone with a one-yard run early in the fourth quarter, but managed just 43 yards on 12 carries on the day. He also caught four passes for 22 yards.
The sixth-year player has been sensational for Big Blue in October. In Week 4 against the Browns, the 26-year-old rushed 30 times for 200 yards and a touchdown, and in the following week he carried the ball 27 times for 116 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers.
Bradshaw is averaging 4.7 yards per carry and has scored four touchdowns. He didn’t address the media after the game.
What do you think it was that got Bradshaw so heated? Was it his lack of carries, or do you suspect that there’s more to the situation? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below…
