Until he does it again against a real NFL team I'll believe what I've seen of Andre Williams in every other game over what I saw yesterday against that disaster of an opponent. Basically every other game he's been awful. And even yesterday if you take out the 50yd TD run he only had 81yds on 23 carries with no scores which is not that great given the competition.

@Brian Webster First, you can't judge a performance by how many time he scores.  When there is a pass play, how would you like him to score on a run?  Second, be honest, the Giants O-Line is awful.  Can't really blame his previous games entirely on him when the O-Line is made of swiss cheese and the defense is through the line as he first touches the ball.  Last, you can't use *if*.  If didn't happen.  He did get the 50 yard run.
