In response to TrueChamp's comment:
Stevan Ridley 178 for 773 yards 7 tds 4.3 ypc and 3 fumbles
LeGarret Blount 153 for 772 yards 7 tds 5.0 ypc and 3 fumbles.
Considering these guys play the same position and split time doing it( meaning they are never on the field together) they combine for this teams power running game.
I think 340 carries for 1540 yards and 14 rushing tds is representative of a dominate running game, and 1 that can and will be relied on to improve our offensive efficiency in this post season.
When you throw in Vareen as a complimentary 3rd down back with excellent receiving skills and some betwen the tackles running ability then this crew has it all.
BB and McD have picked the right time to show case this running game. We are giving these post sesson defenses something else to worry about.
Anyway, its interesting to see Blount and Ridley put up very similar numbers....including fumbles. Although rid also has a receiving fumble....
and what are Bolden's numbers? Didn't Vereen fumble the ball yesterday too? Considering that the Patriots have a small margin of error going forward, I'm surprised Bolden isn't getting more playing time; considering he has zero fumbles.
Well Jet Troll..wait, why am I concerned what you think..YOU'RE A NY JETS TROLL...BWAHAHAHAHA!!!...and we all know your REAL NAME....BWAHAHAHAHA!!!
Now, to the question at hand...
This tandem of backs is getting hot at precisely the right time with bad weather and hard hitting the only way to go in the playoffs...BLOUNT FORCE TRAUMA reminds me of Antoine Smith and Corey Dillon(?) in that no DB wants to try to hit them in the 4th qtr, especially in cold wet weather...once they get into the secondary they might take it to the house...and thats the way you want it in the playoffs....if they get to play the Bronco's in the Conference finals, I could see us pounding that depleted DL into submission....the only team I really fear is the Bengals because they have a stout run D...otherwise, we're peaking the run game at the right time....
Oh yeah...I hope the NY Jets like the early vacation they have do to their 40th straight year of utter national degredation and tumultuous failure...they have wroked very hard to be so very awful...congrats!
