    He really could become a 3 down back, work on hands with fumbles but heck he is a star in the making. Shane Vereen who? It is too bad that he will only be a 2 down back, but backing up BJGE.

    BB was smart to get some young stud backs in the draft. Hope he goes out and gets two more next draft so we'll have a young corps of decent backs instead a bunch of old guys like we have in the past. Ridley is great.

    Re: Ridley

    Hope he goes out and gets two more next year in the draft? Did you watch the draft? We just got two, plus we have a guy (Woodhead) who is what? 25. And we have Ben Jarvis, who's got to be in the same neighborhood, after they cut Morris and pup Faulk, we may not have one single old back. Maybe we can have 6 young backs on the roster...no wait! Lets make it 10! We'll devise a new offense (eliminate Tom and our receivers) and just put'em all out there at the once. Brilliant!

    [QUOTE]Ridley doesn't have a fumble problem.  That said, I agree he can't fumble. I am sure they'll make that very clear.  The kid is good because he has all the skills you want. He also has that anticipation going through the line where he twists his body, gaining a few extra yards. Imagine if Ridley is as good as Ingram or better?  BB has NOs 1st rd pick next year because of these moves.  Genius.

    What's the good word on Ingram so far. They say he hits the hole slow as crap...Fred Smerlas (MO-ron!) said Ridley reminded him of Walter Payton. I don't see any of Payton in Ridley. They are not close to being built the same. But he does remind me of Emmitt Smith a little how low to the ground he is, and hard to take down. & it's not just the #22...Unless, BJGE gets a case of the fumbles (he's never fumbled before) I can't see this kid taking over for him though...

    Re: Ridley

    Based off his college highlights, I thought he looked like a poor man's Corey Dillon...he ran a bit upright and initiated contact and did well. What I see now is a guy who is being coached to run lower (and surprisingly he is) and he looks much different to me at this point. His running style looks familiar and I just can't put my finger on it...Ronnie Brown, Leroy Thompson, Rodney Hampton?

    Re: Ridley

    The knock on Ridley was that his 40 times were slow.  I suspect he just had a lingering hammy or something last spring and that's all over now.  They said that Spikes was slow last year, and he wasn't.

    Soft hands is just gravy. 

    Every Patriots back gets the benefit of being on a legendary passing offense which really softens up the front, with two skyscraper tackles taking advantage of the legalized holding rule in the NFL and using their long gorilla arms to outreach the defensive ends (Solder is also a pancake specialist), plus Mankins is paid to be the best guard in the NFL, plus Gronk blocks like an extra tackle, plus Hernandez can come over and block too.  That said, Ridley is good, BJGE has never yet fumbled in his professional career, Woodhead is quick like Faulk and can hide behind Solder better than anyone else in the NFL, and then there's one more second round mystery running back waiting in the wings.

    Re: Ridley

    He does remind me of a Dillon type, but with lightly better hands coming out of the backfield. I'm really interested to see what h can do during the regular season against better DL's

    What I like is that he keeps moving forward . . . quick cuts without a lot of wasted side-to-side motion.

    This kid should take Lawrence Maroney under his wing and teach him how to run in the NFL. Yes I know L.Maroney is longer on the team.

    Why not just use every pick next year on RBs? The more the merrier.

    as ive said on another thread he plays faster, stronger and more elusive than bjge
    and if he continues this way, i would put him ahead of bjge. look forward to see what vereen can do

    bge is solid, but expendable. ridley is a bigger version of bge and vereen has the potential to be the #1 back by the end of the season. i would start bge wk 1 as he has the most experience in the system and them try and trade him before the deadline or hope a team gives him a decent fa contract and NE get a good compensatory pick.

    sounds like a plan, depending how the rooks do and how their health holds up.

    Re: Ridley

    I have to admit Ridley's recent showing has taken the sting out of BB passing on KENDAL HUNTER -my own personal favorite rookie rb .

    I still believe it was a mistake not to pick Hunter (4th rnd -SF ) - the guy is going to have a great career.
      He's already tearing it up , 9 carries for 105 yards in his last game for the 49ers - Including a 53 yrd TD burst .
     His coaches love him and say he's catching on fast too with his assignments / blocking etc. 
     
    Ce Le Vie

    PS - I wonder how much BABE P would have loved it if BB added Hunter as well in the 4th ( Making it 3 Rbs in a row ) ?

    Why trade BJGE? If the guy is producing play him dont trade him.

    And you can tell all this from a couple of preseason games against teams not even playing their starters? Good thing you don't run the team.

    i think you read my post too quickly, your statement clearly doesnt acknowledge some key words: "if he continues this way, i would put him ahead of bjge. "

    I agree, if he continues to perform well against teams, he should start and i would love for BB to trade BJGE and gain a future pick. Honestley BJGE is not a true #1 back for this team...

    No and that's why he is not paid like one, yet a solid blocker, OK pass catcher, never fumbles..ever, and rushed for 1000 yards.  You keep those type of people for immense depth.  You wouldn't get fair trade value in return.  He's better suited to stay on the roster than off it.  Really obvious actually.
