    My Backfield Binkies

    The first time I saw Woodhead play last year, literally within 1 to 2 plays, I decided he would be my binky. Of course a few players later, he was EVERYONE'S binky thanks to his performance.

    Ridley has convinced me with his first run tonight. I didn't know much about him other than that he was a captain from LSU and stayed for his senior year. I vaguely knew he was the "power" back of our two draftees, while Vareen was the "Faulk-ish" back. But I didn't realize how much speed he had, and his first play showed more wiggle and vision that Maroney ever did.

    Every year it seems a 2nd or 3rd round rookie RB explodes for some team after he was drafted with little fanfare. I rarely have such gut reactions, but watching Ridley play makes me feel like he could have a very good year.

    Benny better watch his back.

    Welcome aboard.

    Sorry to burst your self-congratulatory bubble, there, bub...

    But a few of us had Brother WoodHead Binkified BEFORE he suited up:

    Who The **** Is Danny WoodHead???

    It's called "research". :cool:

    I don't believe in research.

    I remember him from the Jets hard knocks. I loved the way he did everything well. So did one of his coaches but ultimately Rex cut him for the lazy gifted WR. I was happy as doodoo when we picked him up.

    A quick thought on tonight's preseason games

    Looking at the results of the games when the Pats game ended:

    NE 47, JAX 12
    PHI 13, BAL 6
    SD 17, SEA 10
    DAL 10, DEN 9

    I'm reminded of a quote from Cris Collinsworth in 2007. Paraphrased slightly:

    "Today we saw seven backup squads play football, and the Patriots backups play something else. We don't know what that is."

    And to paraphrase the reply from Patriots Planet:

    "That something else would be the Jacksonville backups. I don't know that what they do qualifies as "football."" [​IMG]

    When Was The Last Time NE got beat by 5 TDs?

    The only one in recent memory I can think of was the SB XX when we lost 46-10 to Chicago. I know we lost 50-0 to the Dolphins perfect '72 season but I can't think of any others Reg. season Pre-season Playoffs or otherwise. Let me know which ones I missed.

    I enjoyed watching our backups play. Those who are evaluating the final 53 from tonights play have learned nothing since Belichick came here.

    Re: When Was The Last Time NE got beat by 5 TDs?

    From Pro Football Reference, it's happened eight times:

    1993 @NYJ: L 45-7
    1990 @NYJ: L 42-7
    1988 @GB: L 45-3
    1979 @DEN: L 45-10
    1972 @MIA: L 52-0
    1971 @MIA: L 41-3
    1970 @CIN: L 45-7
    1970 v.(!) BUF: L 45-10

    Conversely, they've won 14 games by 5 TDs or more, six of those in the last five seasons.

    I look on PFR alot too, but your research skills are unmatched ct. Good stuff. I tried to look up pre-season and came up short on answers but thanx for your diligence. Your excellent.

    worst loss of the Belichick era would be, I'd guess, the 31-0 loss to Buffalo in the opener in 2003(?) which prompted the ESPN idiot Tom Jackson to declare that the Patriots "hate their coach" after he cut Lawyer Milloy.

    Avenged 31-0 in the season finale, then with a big trophy and a ring...

    Re: My Backfield Binkies

    Ridley came out after his junior year. He could have went back to LSU. Thankfully he didn't. I had a hunch we'd draft him because he could run and play special teams. Seemed like a good fit for us and he's showing it. Can't wait to see Vereen healthy.

    Yeah, courtesy of Drew. It was like his and Lawyers revenge game. It reminds me of last years How The F did the Browns just whip us by 20?

    Where the position groups stand

    QB -- Amazingly good
    OL -- Looking very good, slight depth concerns at interior OL notwithstanding
    TE -- Looking very good, some oopsies in the Jags game notwithstanding
    RB -- Looking very good, even though Woody is small, Ridley is young, and Sammy is old
    WR -- Looking very solid, assuming Branch stays healthy at least until Ochocinco gets over his jitters, which I think is a very good bet
    DL (classic) -- Looking like there's a LOT of talent in the competition, so there's good hope
    DL (edge)/OLB (3-4) -- Who the heck knows?
    ILB/MLB -- Looking very good
    S -- Looking OK because of Chung, but Meriweather and quality depth are issues
    CB -- Looking 3 deep
    Kickers -- Looking fine, Gost's injury caution notwithstanding
    STs otherwise -- Scary

    Greg Bedard analysis of last night's defense

    Great write-up by Greg Bedard on what the Patriots were doing on D last night. Interesting note that there were 16 team's scouts there last night. Might make it tough come cut time (harder to slip players past other teams).

    Here's the link:
