When Ahmad Bradshaw did what few have, he admitted it wasn’t as hard as he thought.
The Giants running back was the first back to rush for 100 yards against the 49ers this season, and only the second since November of 2009 when he went for 116 yards in a 26-3 road win Sunday.
Bradshaw was asked if it was the hardest 100 yards he’d ever run for, and his answer surprised some people.
“You know what? It really wasn’t,” he said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “I knew my offensive line was coming out to fight today. . . .
“We were able to make a couple of big plays.”
Yeah, maybe one of two.
The Giants rushing offense wasn’t exactly a world-beater before, but it looked like one Sunday.
“People don’t think that they can do it against this defense, but that’s not true,” center David Baas said. “That was our goal coming in. And I think we established that. . . .
“We just kept fighting. We just wanted to make a statement today to show everybody we’re a great team.”
They did that for sure, showing how ridiculous it was for coach Tom Coughlin to try to convince anyone they didn’t have a chance.
