If you are a canine, the quickest way to get yourself tossed out to the doghouse probably is chewing on the furniture. If you are an NFL running back, the quickest way to get yourself tossed out to the proverbial doghouse is to fumble the football. With that in mind, it wasn't the least bit surprising that New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn't give Stevan Ridley a single carry after he fumbled in the first quarter back in Week 12 nor was it surprising that Ridley was left inactive for Week 13.
