Danny Woodhead was released at the beginning of the season by Rex Ryan and the Jets. How did that feel Danny? Not great right? But then he was picked up by the three time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. How does that feel? Much better, I am sure. Woodhead came in and made an immediate impact at running back for the Pats, converting several third downs and scoring some key touchdowns with some great moves. Tom Brady said that he didn’t even know Woodhead’s name during that first game, but he did keep finding a way to get the ball into his hands. How’d that feel Danny? Pretty good, I bet.
The Pats went to New Jersey to play the Jets. Nothing went right, the Jets won. How did that feel Danny? Your first chance to rub the nose of Ryan and the Jets into the mud and things just didn’t work out. I bet that felt pretty crappy. Walking across the field after that loss and seeing Sexy Rexy and his big dumb smile. Oh well, these things happen, we can’t deny it – but I am pretty sure that Danny Woodhead doesn’t like it.
This coming Monday night Danny gets another chance. I am not saying that the Patriots offense revolves around the little guy, but I think that Woodhead will be a big contributor to the Patriot’s upcoming win. Everyone has a role in the Pats offense and Woodhead’s has been expanding on a weekly basis. He even signed a three year deal with the Pats – I think that Danny is starting to feel it now. He is feeling a big win coming up against the Jets and he can’t wait. Whether it is on offense, ripping off magical runs that Woodhead just appears out of nowhere to get a first down or TD or on special teams where he is usually the first Patriot down field on kickoffs ready to drill the returner. Watch yourself Brad Smith, Danny Woodhead is coming after you in a big way! And you know how that is going to feel? Awesome! Pats 38 – Jets 18.
Sorry Jets, time for you to fade away………
