In Response to Re: No love for Ocho? : Ridley shreds the Denver D and would be even more lethal as a feature back splitting some time with BJGE and Faulk is out there as part of a gameplan? Why? I'd love an honest reason for this other than the "we are loyal to Faulk", which we'll never hear, but I was speechless. Once they veered from Woodhead as the lead too, the offense became more balanced. It's so obvious that BJGe/Ridley need to be the lead style players here, sub less, and just sprinkle in Woodhead when you see an opp to do so during the game. They seem to be more concerned with subbing to keep players fresh, which is ok in principle, but most games it's unnecessary. I'll say this, we are going to have some fresh RBs this January.

Woodhead was on fire yesterday. You didn't think he played a great game? Balanced or not, he made a lot of good plays. He had a few 8-9 yard runs, made some decent catches, picked up yards, & even scored. I'd like to see more of him being utilized just like he was yesterday
Faulk needs to retire, or hang around using a roster spot to coach the RB's & be there if all 3 others go down to injury. He looks old, slow, & didn't he miss an easy catch on one of the few plays he was even in there for
BJGE is a straight ahead runner. What were they doing trying to get him to the outside. That is obviously not his strength. He seems too slow to get there, but strong enough to get tough yards in the middle of the field
Ridley was impressive too. He seems capable of getting to the outside, turn upfield and GO. Doesn't seem quite as strong as BJGE for middle of the pack work, but can probably get it done there too
They have all the tools. They need to use them properly & try not to be so predictable regarding run or pass, which they did a much better job of yesterday I thought. Woodhead is definitely a great addition to the backfield though
I didn't look at the stats, but it felt like a fairly balanced game. More so than others, and far less predictable
