In response to PhatVirgin's comment:
Brady has actually been the leading culprit with nine fumbles, which are his most since 2006. (Peyton Manning, by the way, had 10.) He’s followed by Julian Edelman (six), Stevan Ridley (four), LeGarretteBlount (three), Shane Vereen (one) and Aaron Dobson (one).
If it snows, do the Patriots really have an advantage re: playing in bad weather?
First... Brady is 25 - 5 in weather at or below freezing.. Advantage PATS!!!!!
Second, given how often we heard calls for Ridley's head when he fumbles, amazing how the same focus does not occur for Brady, who leads the team, and for Edelman with his 6. Yes, I know, Brady is "different", but, Edelman? He had less touches of the ball than Ridley. I guess it is the timing of his fumbles, a couple which ultimately led to an opponent's score, that made his fumbles more highly visible. Where's the fairness?
Are you drunk? My god. Edelman was targeted twice the amount of Megatron down the stretch this season. Ridley was benched and was scaled back from his duties.
I am not sure any player had his hands on the ball more than Edelman this year, between punt returns and being targeted as a WR here in 2013.
I also have no idea how Edelman can't make the Pro Bowl.
Ridley - 178 rushing attempts + 10 pass receptions = 188 touches - Fumble % - 2.1
Edelman - 105 pass receptions + 35 punt returns = 140 touches - Fumble % - 4.3
Brady - 628 Passing attempts + 470 rushing handoffs = 1,098 touches = Fumble % - 0.82
Can only fumble the ball when in possession.. Ridley had more touches than Edelman.
