Sonny Michell isn't having that great a season is he? We'll see if Chubb is the receiver I think Penny turns out to be.

don't follow it much but there is a bit of a RB controversy in NE isn't there?...White is the receiver threat
New England’s most lethal back, White didn’t have more than 14 touches in a game until Sunday night’s 28-22 loss in Houston, and has only played 38% of the offensive snaps. On last year’s Super Bowl team, White’s number was 54%.

With the ball in his hands against the Texans, White weaponized New England’s offense. He caught eight passes for 98 yards, ran 14 times for 79, and scored a pair of touchdowns; when White had the rock, they were markedly better.

He is the third down back, and the Pat's were in hurry up come from behind all second half. But, yes, Sonny was better last year than this year. No clue why.

an article from before the season started on how Shotty planned to involve the RBs more in the passing game...


Chad Morton on comparing it to Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram
"I've been saying that since Day 1," he said of the Kamara-Ingram comparison. "They've just gotta go out there and prove it now. The biggest thing is that those guys can't press trying to do too much because that's what always happens when you start splitting the backfield. When they get their chance, they want to make a big play. Just stick to what you're doing, stick to the details of the position on each play and you'll be fine, and we can start putting up those kinds of numbers. That's what we expect from those guys."
