I watched the Denver-NE game, and when NE goes up-tempo, if they catch the D in some kind of mismatch, they will run the ball almost every snap and get 6-7 yds on it. And because of up-tempo, they get more snaps that way, too. I agree that Bolden will only relieve Ridley, but even with that he got 14 carries last week. I have both of them, and Ridley has been money for me so far.
