Eisen's Mailbag: Pass Heavy Offense


Lots of questions surrounding the running back position. My question is, with David Wilson being the breakaway speed runner he is, would we expect to see more power, I formation running to give him lead blockers so he can break free? Will there be a change in running style, or will the Gmen decide to go to the air next year instead of sticking with a strong running game? Roy ** -Aaron

*First, the Giants will never abandon the running game as long as Tom Coughlin is coaching. He believes in the value of a strong rushing attack and a balanced offense, so the Giants will never travel solely through the air. I also believe the ground game's style will change little, if at all. Yes, Wilson has more speed than Ahmad Bradshaw possessed last season. But the Giants have had a consistently potent offense (429 points scored last year), so significant changes seem unnecessary. Wilson should be very productive in the scheme the Giants had long run.
