Benny is proven and never fumbles. He can be relied upon in short yardage situations. However, Ridley has more natural talent and is faster and more likely to break tackles.

Ridley in my opinion is a better player he can also catch out of the backfield which Benny struggles to do. If he can stop fumbling lets say he fumbles 3-4 times a season id more than love for him to be the starter. Him and Vereen bring some more explosiveness to the team in the backfield and are both great pickups.

I agree with all of what you say, where do you see Danny Woodhead in all of this? Just for certain situations?

I think Vereen is much alike Faulk and will probably takeover his role this coming season. I think him and Danny will be used as 3rd down backs and in the hurry up

Hard one. Lawfirm has proven himself the last few years. Ok he wont break out an 80 yarder, but thats not what we need him to do. On 3rd & 1 he'll get it done without coughing the ball up.

I'd have liked to see more of woodhead this season. He has the ability to be 'our' Sproles and he creates match up nightmares which BB loves to do.

I dont know why we've kept that slow old man on our roster the last couple of years. He has nothing more to give this team and its time he moved along with his head held high.

I think next season Ridley will end the year with more carries than BJGE, we should be able to cure his fumbleitus. More explosiveness, speed and potentially better weapon in the passing game. He's useless if we can't teach him to hold onto the ball however

Next year? BJGE won't be on the roster. H'e FA, and we won't pay him like a 1,000 ayrd back.
