SI.com David Sabino breaks down who is rising and falling in fantasy football.
Nobody saw what was coming in the Buffalo New England game this past weekend.
If they claim they did they are liars! You probably shouldn’t listen to them or maybe you should. They must have a crystal ball that can broadcast NFL games before they are played.
Here is what I saw happen in that game.
Tom Brady was not very impressive in this game especially the first half and he was constantly pressured.
The Bills defense wasn’t very impressive against the run but contained Tom Brady in the first half and even some of the third quarter.
It took a little while for the man child Patriots OC Josh Mc Daniels to figure out that his running game was breaking for long yardage. So instead of forcing the pass the Pats opted for the running game.
By the way whoever said that Patriots receiver Wes Welker was done in New England is an idiot! But I digress and back to the game.
So of course Chan Gailey abandons the running game with the one of the leading rushers in the NFL CJ Spiller and starts passing. Because that is what Gailey dose.
Dumb mistake because the Patriots defensive secondary has very much improved from last season.
The Bills defense quit in the second half that simple. They were beat up and didn’t even put up a fight.
If Gailey would have continued to use his running game and gave his defense a rest this would’ve been a very different score.
Now is Patriots running-back Brandon Bolden a solid waiver pick up? YES!
Grab him now! Unlike Ridley he pounds the ball and beats up the defense.
Also Ridley fumbled on Sunday and I see Bolden stealing carries when this happens.
Again if someone tells you that Wes Welker is out of New England because Bill Belichick is upset with his holding out then that person is a most likely a moron.
Give me a break! Then why even bother using the franchise tag when he is not even going to play Welker? That was the dumbest twitter conversation I’ve had yet!
