CB and RB issues?

Yes, I know we are only 1 week into the season, but I think it is clear to see that the Giants have some serious issues at CB. Some issues that, if not fixed, could seriously affect an otherwise talented roster. As of now, #2 CB Terrell Thomas is injured, and not due to be back any time soon. #3 CB Prince Amukamara is injured, again, and his future could be a bit questionable. And now, #4/5 CB Michael Coe is out with a hamstring injury. I looked into it, and I thought that maybe the Giants could take a shot on a free agent CB such as Bryant McFadden, or former Giant Frank Walker. McFadden is 30 year's old, and has plenty of experience being on 2 Super Bowl winning teams with the Steelers. Walker is 31, and was drafted by and played for the Giants from 2003-2006. He last played for the Dallas Cowboys. Then there is the RB issue. Yes, I know Bradshaw is the absolute #1 but questions remain surrounding David Wilson, who on Wednesday against the Cowboys only had 2 carries for 4 yards including a fumble. After that fumble, Wilson didn't see any more carries. My problem was Boley's interception to inside the three yard line. They handed it off to Bradshaw on first and second down and he got nothing forcing them to pass it on third. The Giants no longer have the power back, like Brandon Jacobs, who they could give the ball in short yard situations and he would power his way in. How about former Buc Cadillac Williams? I mean, with a name like that he must be good. i believe Caddy, at 5'11 220 pounds, could still be a good short yardage man. He is 30 and was unproductive in 2011 with the Rams but I say at least bring him in for a tryout. Use him as they used Ruben Droughns, who was a pivotal power back on the 2008 Super Bowl winning team.

Like I said, I realize it's early in the season, but you can't forget the Giants have one of the toughest schedule's in the league and have no time to waste. I'm not saying to sign someone right away, but let's at least give them a good look and at the least a tryout.
