Patriots RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis started strong but then faded, finishing 27th in the league in rushing with 667 yards. The guess is something is hurting him because in the latter stages of the season he didn’t hit the holes with his usual abandon.

The good news is that Green-Ellis’ troubles allowed for the late-season blossoming of Stevan Ridley, the rookie running back who looks like he may be a rare thing of late in New England — a draft choice worth the “value.” Ridley averaged 5.1 yards per carry with nearly half of his 441 yards (210) coming in the final three games.
