Factors leading to a possible big game for Stevan Ridley?
I've been thinking about this all week, Could we see a big game for Ridley against the Jills?
1) Brady shoulder issue and upcoming playoffs lead to a more run oriented attack this week.
2) Ridley seeing more carries than BJGE as of late.
3) Bills porous run D being a focal point.
4) Hoyer seeing significant second half reps; see reason 1.
5) Current state of the O-line
I'm thinking 15-20 carries for Ridley this week. This game could lead to him asserting himself as the guy heading into the postseason, if he takes advantage. Considering BJGE's toe issue and his recent ineffectiveness this could be a development worth monitoring.
I would like to see us more balanced in the playoffs and take some pressure off of TFB, as well as keeping our D off the field as much as possible. Long methodical drives should be the goal. While we can also do this with a short passing attack, the less hits Brady takes the better.
I for one will be watching Ridley's carries this week. He has lead us in rushing the last two weeks with sporadic carries. Hopefully we'll get a better look at him when he has a larger sample size.
