    Lack of carries for BJGE?

    Sorry if this has already been covered, but what's up with only 7 carries for BJGE?  Last year he was getting between 15-20 almost every game.  If it was just a case of Woodhead having the hot hand that would explain it, but they both averaged 4.9 YPC.  Am I reading too far into this, maybe it's just Belichick being Belichick?

    Woodhead was the better match up against the Phins D. Nothing more then that. I expect you'll see BJGE and Woodhead trading the majority of carries depending on opponent. Stinks for fantasy owners but great to keep them fresh and take advantage of advantageous situations all season

    Likely that BB felt Woodhead would be more effective against the Miami defensive front...  not a bad problem to have when you have multiple RB's capable of 5 YPC....

    ...and we still have Ridley and Vereen waiting to see some action.

    Game planning.  Woodhead fit the game plan they had for the Dolphins much better.  Receiving out of the backfield, blocking, etc..

    I was hoping it was just a matchup thing and not a case of law firm being in BB's doghouse for some reason or an injury, etc.

    It is because Woodhead can slow down a pass rush with his speed on draw and receiving plays. At least that is what I am attributing it to.

    Lawfirm I think was 7 carries 35 yards and td....No getting stuffed there. I like that we had 600 yards and all but I sure would like to see more of a run game.

    Can't remember when a defense in the playoffs let a guy go almost untouched and throw for 500 yards.

    I'm sure it was the game plan against this particular team and I hope we don't use it against a team that can get to Brady. "Sitting Duck" comes to mind.

    He'll get more touches against SD, and the Bolts know it.

    Last night I sat next a fantasy guy at the bar who had the Law Firm on his team and was playing a guy with Brady at quarterback.

    Ouch!

    STUFFED??????  Different situations call for different approaches.

    Woodhead   14 carries  69 yards   4.93 yds/carry

    Green-Ellis    7 carries   34 yards   4.86 yds/carry

    exactly...clearly the game plan was to throw often and and early...Woodhead's game is the draw and screens...BJGE is a north south move the pile type....

    We actually had this exact conversation.

    The Pats spread the ball around too much to offer any good fantasy guys besides Brady (and for the record, I don't play fantasy football), and even with the tight ends, they're both great, and of course they were both great last night, but you just know that game is gonna come when one or the other of them is going to go for an 0-for.

    They ran the hurry up don't forget...you  need a RB that is also a great pass catcher and blocker in that situation I would think. 

    They got a Miami defense tired, and small quick guy will also expose that.

    Brilliant run in the first quarter though for the PATS first TD.  I like that man's attitude....  Not to be denied...

    I've always stayed away from Pats RBs but figured law firm would build on his 1,000 yard season so I grabbed him to be my 3rd RB. I also have Ray Rice and Peyton Hillis, so I should be ok in that department Cool

    I get that the game plan was up tempo...but with 9 minutes left in the game, up by two touchdowns (31-17) we went 3 and out running the ball once taking .51 seconds off the clock, traded TD's then up 38-24 we run on 1st down, then throw two incomplete passes go 3 and out again, taking a little over 1 minute off the clock? Game plan be damned, up by 2 touchdowns it's about eating clock at that point but in our zeal to continuing the beatdown we forgot the fundemtal of clock management...

    They ran the spread offense and went no huddle. He's the best pass receiver so he was out there. Once they go no huddle they don't make any substitutions because it doesn't allow the Dolphins time to make the subs. If the Pats make substitutions they are required to allow the Dolphins the time to make their substitutions too which defeats the purpose of going no huddle. I think we are going to see quite a bit of that this year.

    based on the game plan it was prob a match up thing we  didnt need the "hammer" that much  and woody is more of the "nail"

     for me once the rooks have what they need 
    i like ridley as my 1, woody as 2 (for now), vereen(see what hes got) as 3, bjge as 4. went into this a little more on another thread. these guys just have some things that bjge does not have, though he is solid and works hard.

         Why bring this up?? Did you watch the game? The Pats put up over 600 yards of offense, and 38 points...against what was, on paper at least, a good defense. I'll be glad to take that type of offensive production every week. 

         The NFL has become a passing league.

    48 passes ... 22 runs. Against a team like the Fins or Steelers, who like to run 34 sets, this is probably the mix they are going for.

    There will be other teams they run more against. 

    It's how NE game plans.

    It's not the amount of carries but production and efficiency 100+ yds and a score, wepicked up 1st downs when needed. When your toasting an opponent for 500+ why ground and pound? Think you guys might be micro reviewing  it a bit.
