NE Rushing Attack: Methodical but effective rotation?
With Kevin Faulk back in the lineup, we now have at least 4 capable runningbacks in the backfield that can easily wear a defense down. Ball carriers such as BenJarvus "LawFirm" Green-Ellis, Kevin Faulk the X-Facor, Danny Woodhead, and Stevan Ridley, the former LSU star not to mention former Oregon runningback Shane Vereen. Each of these guys provide their own running styles and could be used in a rotation if enough plays permit during the course of a game. I truly believe that with each running style it can be very effective and deadly if used right, and at the right time despite us being a pass heavy offense. And we are actually alot more balanced than most outsiders think and can run with will. Any thoughts on this?
