Ottis Anderson has a point
Former New York Giants’ running back and Super Bowl XXV champion Ottis Anderson was a guest on the “Valentines Views” podcast and said that Big Blue star running back Saquon Barkley can learn from back-up Wayne Gallman.
During the interview Anderson also doubled down on his belief that the Giants have to re-sign Gallman, who is set to hit free agency this coming offseason.
“I’ve said for a long time the Giants should never get rid of that kid,” he said. “I’m glad they kept him around because he’s very valuable and I love what he’s done. He’s a one-cut and take what you give. He’s not trying to hit the home run every time he gets the ball in his hands. That’s the difference between him and Barkley.”
“Show him films of Wayne. . . look at what Wayne did,” Anderson said. “Wayne took what the defense gave him and he didn’t try to get those home runs every time he touched the football, but you saw them come.”
Anderson has a great point because not every running back is patient and I think that’s a quality that is often overlooked. It would be great if the Giants can figure out a way to keep Gallman, especially with Barkley coming off of ACL surgery.
