Due to popular demand, the Benny watch continues.
Big week for Benny. He was way over the top on his 3.4 ypc season's average, getting 4 ypc yesterday. Brought his average all the way up to 3.5 ypc. The NFL average per carry is about 4.2 btw. And he's only averaging 1.1 ypc less than Ridley.
Right now he has the 7th most rushing attempts, and is 16th in total rushing yards.
Got to hand it to you Babe - here you are posting a Benny thread even when Benny has a good week and you're still getting slammed. It's funny, but people confuse the fact that no one is saying Benny wasn't a try hard/nice guy...all we are saying is that he wasn't very good and he was no reason to take the ball out of Brady's hands. Same thing that Belichick told everyone this summer...if he had a guy that warranted additional carries, he would of gave the guy additional carries. Simple.
Funny thing is in 2010 Benny's stats were the following:
229 carries 1,008 Yards, 4.4 yards a carry and 13 TD's
Sounds pretty good to me. 2011 the stats dip some but he still added 11 TD's.
Seems like Ridley is on that pace this year.... Not seeing the big difference. Benny also has been healthy his whole carrer and Ridley already missed a full season....
Ridley already missed a full season?? News to me. Ridley I think is on pace for something like 1400 yards - that a big difference from 1000. And I wouldn't call it a bib deal scoring 11td's when you have three tries running from the one yard line. Seriously, how many times has Benny scored from beyond the 10 yard line or even the five yard line? Benny was the guy no one was worrying about stopping on this offense, yet his big season was barely making it over 1000k yards...not too impressive for 16 games.
Last season Benny did a little more than dip...there were 27 runners that had more yards than him and there were 47 running backs that had a better ypc average. That's about as unimpressive as you can get. Belichick had 29 million in cap space to spend this off season, he didn't offer a single dime of it to Benny...come to think of it there were 31 other teams that didn't either. They all knew what they were doing.
