Oh, Tannenbaum. All Woodhead has done is become the Patriots' second-leading rusher, average 5.4 yards a carry in 10 appearances, and establish himself as the Pats' quintessential cult hero this season.
"It was more of a situational thing than Danny couldn't play" said Jets safety Jim Leonard. "Everyone in this locker room knew that he could play. The coaches knew he could play, obviously. They thought very highly of him. He got to New England and Kevin Faulk got hurt and he goes right into that role, being a third-down back and they're running the ball well with him."
Jets tight end Dustin Keller was a little less philosophical. "I think the Patriots got a steal with him," Keller said.
Other Jets are just happy to see Woodhead making the most of a chance he'd not have gotten with the Jets.
"I'm excited for him, I'm glad that he's doing well," Jets receiver Braylon Edwards told ESPN Boston. "But we can't have that this week. We don't want him going wild on us."
That's funny, Braylon Edwards, because Patriots fans wouldn't mind if you went wild again before Sunday's game.
