This morning WFAN talk show host, Boomer Esiason was asked by his Eli Manning bashing, Derek Jeter loving partner, Craig Carton to name his New York football personnel choices as of week three.
Boomer an avid Jets fan and one hell of a quarterback in his day was straight up truthful and fairly accurate in his “All New York” choices; however, I was surprised on his running back choice…purely on age alone.
The Giants backs have a much higher ceiling and much more tread on the tires. Even though Chris Johnson and Rashad Jennings are the same age…Jennings has much more life left in his legs, as Johnson is clearly not the same player he once was and has taken many more hits.
The Giants 2014 4th round pick, Andre Williams racked up over 2000 yards and 17 TD’s at Boston College and is only 22, unlike Ivory who is on his second NFL team and has never shared the spotlight with someone like Chris Johnson. While Ivory’s YPC is impressive he has never scored more than 5 TD in a season.
