    jury is still out on ridley only cause he wasnt played enough, which in my mind was a mistake. at the very least, to know what you have (before the year is out). and at the most, to determine if we have another threat defenses need to worry about in the post season.

    [QUOTE]The reason I prefer Ridley (ironically as I seem to be the godfather of "run more" threads) and why he is more dangerous than Law Firm besides simply being faster and more athletic, is that he can flex out wide in the pass game if a defense commits inside, in short he is more of a threat in the passing game. A linebacker won't be able to cover him and if Brady plays him like a receiver he'll be able to catch it.  Law Firm is an absolute stiff trying to catch the ball, if it's not gently placed in his bread basket he drops it. He can't catch over his shoulder at all, so he is limited to running only and opposing teams know this, so we're telegraphing the run when he is in there.

    yeah, BJGE can't catch at all! its painfull to watch an athlete struggle to catch a football like that. Imo vereen and ridley will be the tandem next year, hopefully splitting 25-30 carries a game. that makes the passing game even more lethal.

    Lets face it folks.  Running back is the most over-rated position in the NFL.   If the O-line can't make a hole, no running back is going to succeed.  A least Ridley has some break-away speed so that if he can get to the second level he has a chance to break the run for a TD or a huge gain.  On that alone he should be getting more playing time.

    All those games watching Maroney treat the line of scrimmage like it was the edge of a cliff, now we get a kid with some legitimate talent and some big play ability and he sits on the sideline the majority of the game.  Maybe theres a problem with his blocking but either way its perplexing.
