In the wake of last weekend’s Super Bowl victory for the New York Giants, running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been making his way around the interview circuit. He was recently asked about the Giants’ NFC East opponents and gave some wide-ranging answers–from cliche to candid.
Regarding the Eagles, Bradshaw had this to say: “I think it might be a little bit of their defense,” he said. “I guess they were trying to come together with a lot of different people. Their offense is a great offense. You can’t say too much about that. But I think it’s their defense that really didn’t come together.”
Fair enough. I was hoping for something with a little bit more juice to up the ante for 2012, but there’s plenty of time remaining for that.
He went on to compliment the Redskins, noting their need for quarterback stability.
But the most interesting comments from Bradshaw concerned the Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo. Bradshaw, when asked about the Cowboys’ ability to win the Super Bowl with Romo at quarterback, didn’t shy away, “You know what, man, I don’t see it happening,” he said. “I don’t think they believe it, and they’re America’s team. It all comes in together. If the fans don’t believe it, the team doesn’t. They’re kinda doubtful with Romo.”
While Bradshaw muttered nothings about the fans lack of faith regarding Romo, he was really just watering down words that imply his belief that there’s no way in the hell the Cowboys can win a Super Bowl as currently constructed. I’m sure Jerry Jones’ ears just perked up somewhere.
