Patriots Blog: Gold Stars, Black Thumbprints
" BOSTON (CBS) – Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was tough to watch if you are a fan of the Patriots. We still though have some gold stars and black thumb prints to hand out.


Stevan Ridley gets a gold star. If there was any question who the number one running back on this team was, it was answered last night.   He caught the ball out of the backfield, scored on a short yardage play and also broke through the line and had a 29-yard run. He did it all and did it without fumbling. No need to play him in the final preseason game. The second year player out of LSU is ready.

Jeff Demps gets a gold star. I think everybody waited for the young man to take the field and when he did, he did not disappoint. An all-purpose back, he reminded me of Dave Meggett, but faster. Three carries for 41 yards was his final stat line and he also did himself well on kick returns. He could be a game-changer and his speed makes all the difference.

Nate Ebner and Marquice Cole both get gold stars "
