I wasn’t surprised. I find that sometimes, that’s the role I play in people’s lives. They like the advice. They like the column or the podcast or the Sunday show. But sometimes they just want someone to talk to — someone who understands what they are going through. And so, from Sunday night through Tuesday, my inbox exploded, my phone lit up, my Twitter was going nuts.
“My heart hurts.”

If I am being honest, I had some of the same sort of feelings. Been a rough month for me, both personally and professionally, with a variety of things going on in my life. So I understood and appreciated as the messages rolled in.

They were all different, yet they were basically all the same; talking about their pain, their hurt, their disappointment.

They were all the same … except one.

Brian Kenny’s note was different.

LeGarrette Blount, Patriots: You know that old adage that you can’t trust New England running backs? Well, with at least 18 carries in six of his past seven games, it would certainly appear you can trust Blount. As we’ve said all year, you can run on Denver, as the Broncos have allowed at least 110 rushing yards in five of the past seven.

On the road in Denver, it’s always dangerous to try to predict what the Patriots will do, but for the majority of the season, they have given Blount lots of run. He has 10 games with at least 18 carries and has 13 touchdowns in those games. The Broncos are 27th against the run but first against the pass the past four weeks, so yeah, Blount is a RB1 for me this week, even in a tough road game.
