Danny Woodhead has been a major factor in the Patriots separating themselves from the rest of the NFL. New England is playing on its own level and setting its own standards, and believe it or not their 3rd down running back has helped get them to the next level. Woodhead is a white running back that stands at about 5-foot-8 (on stilts) and weighs 195 pounds (soaking wet with cement in his cleats). Needless to say, he doesn’t fit the prototype.
For that reason, Patriots fans love him. Woodhead is the epitome of an underdog story, but you can’t compare him to Rudy because he contributes week-in and week-out and helps the best team in the NFL win games. When we actually think about it, it should come as no surprise that he is outselling Tom Brady and Wes Welker in New England area sporting goods stores.
Modell’s Sporting Goods told the Boston Herald that Woodhead has sold twice as many $20 T-shirts in the past month as Brady and Welker, who are normally the team’s best sellers. His shirts are also the third-best seller at the Patriots Pro Shop and managers have had trouble keeping up with the demand.
With Rex Ryan’s team reeling and looking like they could turn against him at any second, I bet he wishes he could take back cutting this guy. Woodhead seems like a great locker room guy and his play speaks for itself. You win some and you lose some, right Rex?Google+
