I know that a lot of people (I am sure some in here) look at our "stable" of running backs as a 100% good thing that keeps the defense guessing as to who we will play.
Whether it be Ridley, Bolden, Woody or Vereen now.
However, I honestly think that we need to stick with Ridley for Ace Back looks and the predominant workload and spot in Woody for the No Huddle attack.
I think Bolden and Vereen need to be used as sparingly as possible, or not at all. Ridley seems to be okay in pass protection but he really takes the cap off of a 6 or 7 man in the box look. It seems as if he ALWAYS gets to the second level.
Woodhead is great out of the backfield and is a solid 3rd down/screen back. I think that Bolden has looked promising but this consistency is something the Pats really seem to be missing this year.
