Good question, BB said today that Woodhead could’ve gone back in if they needed him. Vereen was lighting it up so they stuck with the hot hand. Woodhead will be re-evaluated, but I expect the Patriots will use both him and Vereen to attack the Baltimore linebackers in coverage as you said. Ball security will be paramount against the Ravens tough defenders, that’s still something that scares me with Vereen. But with Gronk done the Pats need to get all of their weapons involved and Vereen has clearly demonstrated he’s a weapon.
How much of an impact do you think Vereen will have against the Ravens? I know it was just one game, but the exploitation of a LB on the outside proved pivotal. Against the slower LBs of the Ravens, can we have similar success using Vereen's speed and pass catching ability?
