    He came out there today with something to prove. Like I said in a post earlier, this guy runs like he was shot from a cannon each time he takes the carry.

    I think BenJarvis better watch out because this guy is the read deal.

    I think both need to be used more.

    I think that BJGE and Ridley give them a very good tandem.. Add Woodhead as the "3rd down back" and live gets really interesting for the opposing teams. Ridley is more dynamic than BJGE in that Ridley is very good in the passing game.

    His 40 time is either wrong (4.64) or he's just got great game speed, he looks like a burner out there.

    It's time to make Ridley the featured back. I'm not sure that they trust him with blitz pickups yet but the guy may be a special runner. Law Firm is solid but that's all he'll ever be.

    Those 3 provide a different dynamic to the running and passing games. I'm looking forward to seeing what Vereen can add to the dynamic.

    I like Ridley as a Kevin Faulk type player. Law Firm is a workhorse. Woodhead for gimmick stuff and Edelman needs to be phased out of the offense.

    Edelman should not be used for anything but end-arounds and passing plays. Using him on running plays is silly..

    Ridley actually is NOT a Faulk type player. Ridley is more of a North/South runner. He actually has shown he can run both inside and outside.. Which is the sign of a Starting RB. Ridley was used more in short-yardage in college.

    Vereen is the one touted as the Faulk-type player. And we haven't even seen him yet..

    Ridley is more explosive than BJGE. Our only HR threat and difference maker. He will play more and more as long as he does not miss blitz pick ups.

    No way. Ridley has featured back written all over him....based upon what we've seen so far. Give him 15-20 carries a game and I bet that we'd see something special. If by workhorse, you mean steady/solid but limited, I agree.

    Definitely more explosive than BJGE. That breakaway speed on the TD was a beautiful site :D So far this pick looks like a slam dunk, let's hope he keeps it up.

    He doesn't look like he is 220-225 lbs - maybe that's why some people don't seem to think that he can be an every down back.

    Well obviously the coaching staff doesn't seem to think he can be an every down back at this point.

    +1. This.

    Vereen is the Faulk/Woodhead type.

    Do you trust him to block and protect Brady from blitzes?

    Dude, you don't have to get your panties in a bunch, just because nobody on this thread agrees with your opinion. Sometimes it takes a little time for coaches to trust rookies (blitz pickups, avoiding fumbles). Let's just check back in a few weeks and see who was right.
