    woodhead

    i know negativity is an artform on this forum...but is anyone else excited about woodhead? the guy made things happen every time he touched the ball. i think we may have just found our new 3rd down back. once he actually learns our offense and gets integrated into our system he could be a real weapon.

    Artielang, I added that sentiment in a few other posts here today. I think this was a great find for New England! I actually enjoyed watching both he and BJGE run today.
    He seems to be a shot in the arm and the type of player that wants to hit the endzone every time he touches the ball.
    Short, very fast, hard running and tough to tackle.  I will repeat, no rookie learning curve and all ahead full steam. How could you not like him!
    Also BJGE look very impressive as well. It's very unfortunate for Mr. Maroney, I would have like to see him succeed here in New ENgland, but how refreshing that as he left a new window of opprotunity has opened and a new light shines on the running game for the Patriots! Bravo, oh how sweet, Bravo!

    I will say that as great as my man Kevin Faulk is he would not have taken that draw into the endzone. Don't get me wrong psycho posters , Faulk is ten times more valuable then Woody but he does not possess that explosion.

    Yeah, i was wrong about Woodhead, can't believe the Jets dumped him, he looks like another Welker clone only he is the running back version.

    Woodhead, Welker and Edelman to go along with our young TE's, Moss and Tate, BJGE, Taylor, really excited about the offense.

    Yes, I have some hope for this season because our offense is potentially so diverse that we should be able to score enough points to hide our defense for a chunk of the season.

    I believed when they signed him(I tried to explain why I felt that way on one these forums a day or two ago and I won't go through the whole explanation again)and I have to feel even stronger after today.Like Welker,Faulk and going back aways,Brown,he is simply a football player mentally,physically,instinctually with better athleticism than most would believe and a work ethic and motivation that would put most of us looking like slackers even if we do work hard.Keep him healthy and he helps a lot of ways.Now if we could just find a few like him who play on the defensive side.

    Re: woodhead

    Woodhead can run like Faulk, maybe a bit better

    Hernandez can catch like him and do the end arounds

    the combination = Faulk

    You hate to say such a special cog who was unique can be replaced, but that combo looks up to the task

    I think Gronk and Crumpler are just as good a duo as the best TE combo (Graham/Watson '05) that the team has had in awhile.

    Moss and Welker are not the '07 versions of themselves, but they are close, and Edelman will spell Wes. Tate looks just as good as Stallworth was for us. You'd think if they gave him the chance Price could be a Gaffney, he is prob still learning.

    Nobody is missing Mankins yet and Vollmer is better than Kaczur, even if Light/Koppen/Neal are all older.

    BJGE is a Maroney who doesn't dance. Taylor is smart and quick for 34 and Morris solid depth.

    The point of course is that our offense is every bit as nasty as it was in '07.

    The defense is a disaster tho.

    I don't think the defence is a disaster, I just think they need another game or two to get in tune with each other, comeon, they'er all so young and learning An I think they'er strating to get it

    I'm holding my breath on Woodhead.  I think he caught the Bills by surprise today.  Miami will adjust when he comes in the game.  That said, from what was saw today, it is possible that he could become a servicable third down back for the Pats.  I'm just not ready to hand him the job yet.

    Re: woodhead

    Rameakap I agree with your comparisons, I think the TE's can be the key to an explosive offense and consistent one. We just have to commit to the run to be able to utilize them in the right way. I like what BJGE did today but I think against the this team (who was expecting the heavy passing ways they saw early in the 2nd qtr to continue) that anybody could have ran on them. With Fred Taylor now injured again I am VERY concerned that a lack of the run(or threat of the run) will slow this offense and leave Brady exposed to some big hits. I hope BJGE can maintain the load because after giving Maroney away for nothing we have put all our eggs in 1 basket.

    Also to the other poster, I too am holding my breath on Woodhead. I think he has some big play potential which we lack in the run game but I wouldn't count on him to be a consistent contributor. Not yet anyway.

    Yeah jury is still out on Woodhead

    How bad did Taylor injury look? I missed it.

    Re: woodhead

    It wasn't visible. It was the same toe that has been limiting him in practice, but he did leave to not return. No surprise here as he is the active NFL leader in rushing yards with LOTS of wear and tear. Well at least we have another 4rth round draft pick for Maroney that probably won't make this already young team next year.

    His explosive TD run was impressive; very fast and displayed an instinct to find the end zone.

    Be nice if we usd our 4th's to ove up the the 2nd 5-10 spots to make sure we DEF get the players we need

    This club has 4 picks in the 1st 2 rounds, maybe Mankins will net them a pick, beyond round 3 talent this team doesn't need more, those 5-6 guys and 2-3 FA's will be enough

    Re: woodhead

    I agree Rame we need to use our picks either in a trade for a vet or draft somebody in the 1st few rds. Tcal Maroney also had a TD called back and had 40 yards on 2 catches in his 1st game in a new scheme. I think with the offense we had this year we could have utilized Maroney much better then we did last year. At least we would have some depth which we don't have now.

    Crumpler was in on the huge hole opened up for Woodhead. Looked good. Hopefully, he can be consistently good.

    Woodhead looked good, our offense was great but our defense I admit is looking like a disaster, then again they only gave up 23 and had two crucial INT's so they showed brilliance when it was most needed.

    Not a bad maiden voyage on the S.S. Patriot.  He may not yet be the jack-of-all-trades that Faulk was, but it looks like he can do some good things.  I was skeptical, I thought BB was trying to stick Rex's nose in it, but some of you guys were right about Woodhead having some potential.

    Faulk didn't look like himself the first 2 games.  Maybe the new look will make the Pats less predictable.  When Faulk was in the backfield it was almost definitely a pass and defenses knew it.  He would only rush 3 or 4 times a game.  I think by using Morris, Woodhead, Hernandez and Edelman it keeps the defense off balance.

    If anything, maybe the creative solution to replacing Faulk makes them less predictable, at least in the short run.

    Why sully BJGE by comparing him to Maroney?  He runs nothing like Maroney.  He see the hole and hits it for positive yardage most of the time and so far holds on to the football.  When was the last time Maroney had 98 yards in a game?  It was some time ago.  I note BJGE can also catch out of the back field but they don't go there much.

    I like BJGE a lot.  His is a good story, up from nowhere and still hanging in.  He's a great straight ahead runner.  I'm loving it.  I watched some of Denver's game yesterday and not a whole lot has changed where Maroney is concerned.  BJGE is not Maroney like at all.  Please note I pulled for Lawrence all the time he was here but he never lived up to his hype and I'll assume, his potential.  There was no hype about Green Ellis and there still isn't, just quiet consistency.

    Great football player name.  Not as good as Bruschi, but better than Zoltan or Gronk. 

    Only 3 plays, but 2 long first downs picked up on third and long, one went for a touchdown, and the other was a 5 yard gain on first and 20.  He got his job done.
