There are several players that I will watching this Sunday to see if they will live up the expectations of Juan and many others.
Taking a Patriots RB in recent years has been about a fun as pouring lemon juice in a paper cut. Bill Belichick has used a platoon of RBs in recent seasons, but last season drafted both Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley to replace Kevin Faulk and BJGE.
This Sunday the Pats will be without Shane Veereen, so this will be Stevan Ridley’s show. He has had a really good training camp outside of putting the ball on the carpet a couple of times. He had shown the ability to hit the hole hard and gives the effort of a younger BJGE, but with more talent.
The Pats may be a spread offense that will throw a ton, but Ridley should be the guy when they decided to run down close and 15 plus touches in this offense could produce very nice stats.
