Posted Jun 19, 2013

We ask you to decide which RB tandem in Giants History is the best ever


 

Today on Big Blue Kickoff, host John Schmeelk debated with callers about which was the best running back tandems in the history of the Giants. As David Wilson and Andre Brown work to become one of them this season, the usual names of Tiki Barber, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs, and Derrick Ward came up in the discussion of the top combinations.
