    It was unlikely that someone picked up this week would be much help to the D. First, it's hard to find someone good at this point in the season, and second, there's not much time for anyone new to learn the scheme in time for the game.  The only possible exception would be someone like Murrell who has already played for the Pats--but if Murrell wouldn't have made the 45-man roster tomorrow, picking him up would be useless.  At least this guy can give us some info on the Jet's playbook.  Plus, it messes with Ryan's head.

    The Patriots were already razor thin at running back.  33 year old players such as Sammy Morris, Fred Taylor and Kevin Faulk don't last forever in the NFL, and they don't heal quickly.  With Maroney gone, BB really needed a running back.

    The D may be young, but they're not thin at all.  A young D with talent is going to mature.

    Finally, Woodhead has a certain quality that BB is looking for, lateral explosion.  He's a tremendous change of pace compared to Slammin Sammy Morris.  This change of pace drives defenses crazy.  Woodhead has enormous speed and cutting ability that Morris lacks.  He may be short but at 200 pounds he's kind of muscular, another good trait.

     Are you going to ask until you find someone to agree with you?

    I will be the first to admit I was way off about BB this off season and who he picked. Yes the Patriots had some busts and hopefully the last one Maroney is out the door.
    The defense looks to be going the right way, I thought Chung was in over his head last year but is turning out to be a fantastic pick. McCourty looks like he will be the Patriot version of Revis. LB's we will have to wait and see on.

    Now about this kid Woodhead. I've been watching his YouTube stuff all day, this kid is exactly what BB likes and his speed is underated. He gets to the outside very fast and because he is only 5'9" turns his shoulder in and is very hard to tackle.  He hits the hold at full speed, and those little guys going that fast if he can follow Crumpler would be getting Wes Welker yards on his runs.

    I Hope Bill B keeps this kid, he can turn out to be amazing

    Why ? It's called Gamesmanship. But I'd love to see Woodhead hang around for awhile.

    the D doesn't need any help. They just need to mature.

    I guess we needed a RB after trading Maroney and didn't particularly caer for the guys on our practice squad. We were down to 4 RB's with two of them extremely injury prone.
