Tom Brady is on a roll.  Since the loss at Seattle, he's racked up 14 touchdowns and hasn't thrown a pick. Not much news there, typical Tom Brady you can say. New England fans rarely can say anything bad about Brady's performance year in and year out. But what's different about this season is the help he's getting that's making him even more dangerous – a formidable stable of running backs, Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead and Brandon Bolden, each of them with their own unique abilities for offense coordinator Josh McDaniels to use in various situations makes defending the Patriots an even harder prospect. "There was a lot competition at running back in the early part of the season, and that whole group has really be en a huge strength of our team," he said during his weekly radio appearance on WEEI's "Dennis & Callahan" show. "What our running backs have been able to do both in the pass game and the run game -- and not that I didn't think they could do it, it's just they didn't have the opportunity to prove it -- and I think what those guys have done, Shane [Vereen], Danny [Woodhead] and Stevan [Ridley] and Brandon Bolden when he's been in there, they've just taken advantage of their opportunities. It's really cool to see as a veteran player when young guys get opportunities and they take advantage of them." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
