Ridley & The Running Game

Sure has been fun to watch the Pats run the ball more... to the point of running more than throwing. ONLY complaint is that it's so predictable. Simms nailed it. Brady under center with RB behind him = 99% chance it's a run. HOWEVER, that makes it even MORE impressive, when they KNOW you are going to run it and you STILL do it well. Just wish they'd make it a little less obvious. The season is still early, but if it continues as it's been going, the Pat's could definitely win it all this year.... ESPECIALLY if they start calling some of the blatant/flagrant holds against everyone clotheslining/mugging Chandler Jones.
1st place for 1st downs at 37, next best is 26
2nd place in TD’s w/4 (5 way tie / Foster in 1st place w/5)
2nd place w/102 carries
5th Place rushing (Better than Adrian Peterson, MJD, Ray Rice et al)
His longest run is only 20 yards, which ties him for 57th place, but that just makes his other stats more impressive because he doesn’t have a couple long runs skewing his stats
All that so far and didn’t he not run much one game, when they played Woodhead as a lead back? Against Baltimore maybe???
avg 5.6 ypc, albeit only 37 attempts
3 carries for 20+
The guy is pretty good on 3rd and long. Totally elusive in the open field.
