    Silva of Rotoworld predicts for Ridley to have over 100 Yards Rushing and a couple of touchdowns against the Titans.

    His prediction is about in the middle of the page.

    I would absolutely LOVE for Evan to be right and see Brady have some help moving the chains.

    Not as much a stretch prediction IMO,I think Ridley can accomplish it

    From Silva's mouth to the Football God's ears! But seriously, couldn't all of us on here make this prediction?

    Only a few would predict that IMO

    Most expect Ridley to contribute,but if I made a poll and asked what is more likely - Brady throwing for 400 yards or Ridley running for 100
    ....Brady wins by a landslide

    Yeah, but the trick is getting paid for it.

    You said it. We all went into the wrong line of work.

    Look deep into the stats and you can see it. 5 carries of over 20+ yards in only 87 tries puts him right up their with the likes of Foster and Johnson in terms of big play capability. Small sample size ofcourse but worth sticking your neck out there to make a name for yourself if your right.

    Some 2011 stats for the Tennessee defense:

    128.3 rushing yards per game (24th)
    4.5 yards per carry (22nd)
    Opponent rushing 1st down percentage: 34.26% (26th)
    4.2% defensive DVOA (15th)


    With the Titans adding Kamerion Wimbley to their pass rush perhaps it would behoove the Pats to consider utilizing Ridley more than they have included other running backs in the recent past for this game.

    Damnit the secret is out! :mad:
    I can see a big year for Ridley, the best season for a Pats RB not named Dillon in the BB era if he gets 15-20 carries per game.

    I made sure I got Ridley and Torrey Smith in all my leagues. They're my two breakout picks. I think Ridley is going to be a much bigger part of the passing game than people are assuming.

    A little number manipulation

    Take away Ridley's runs of 0 to 3 yards and negative runs, while keeping the 1 yard run for the TD in

    13 rushes 133 yards
