In response to Harvey-Wallbanger's comment:
From a strategic approach, even it being early in the year...anyone notice anything about our RBs vs the last 3 seasons or so?
We aren't subbing the RBs to run certain plays (run or pass).
Sure, some guys might be better at other things than the other, but we aren't running shotgun spreads with a specific RB (Woodhead) and then running more base plays with an in between the tackles kind of runner (BJGE or RIdley).
Bolden and Ridley were wach targeted with passes today, which is a good sign. It shows Brady isn't having to throw to just one RB on the roster when that RB is subbed on or off.
Translation? OUr offense is far less predictable than it has been in the last 2 seasons and it's because we walked from Woodhead and Welker, two players who were only effective in limited ways.
If you listen to Bolden, postgame, you can tell this is more about each guy being counted on to run, catch and block and they're only pulled off for a breather.
Personally, I love it. I think it's much, much better. We just beat a very good front 7 (4 1st rd picks on the D Line) and secondary with 2 rookie WRs and a rookie TE.
Don't sub the RB for the skill sets, watch the offense be less predictable.
If that is what they are doing, I would agree that would be a good thing. I didn't get to watch the game yesterday so I didn't see what was going on with the running backs. I hadn't noticed that they were throwing much to Ridley in the first two games. Did they get him some throws yesterday?
