    When Morris went down in the Dallas game. We knew it would be a long season. Given Maroney's performance the last 5-6 games it's curious he didn't see the ball more in games 6-12. Were we saving him for when it really mattered?

    I don't know, but today's performance confirmed his Jacksonville performance. Maroney's a big-game back, a real stud.

    I would have to say YES. He really didn't any ANYONE left but Maroney so BB may have saved him.
    Maybe we pick up another RB for depth next year.

    We did save Maroney but that doesn't mean he is amazing yet. If Maroney can learn to be patient at the line, maybe build up some muscle this offseason, he could become a great RB because once that guy breaks out in the clear, he's gone.

    Physically he may not have been ready either at that point.

    i think he just needs to develop SOME strength. Hes tough to bring down for a kid who doesnt look like hes 220-225. He did have a shoulder injury that limited him a lot in the weight room this off season but hes surprisingly strong and his speed is gamebreaking

    Sammy's coming back, everything will be fine. No need to sweat out a draft or trade over this.

    i really dont think bill is one to hold back in ANY game, nevermind half the damned season! maroney was definantly "saved", but not in that way. it just worked out like that naturally. it is nice to have a good back nice and fresh for the playoffs though

    imagine how good our running game will be if both maroney and morris can stay healthy for a full season?

    share the load wisely and have both fresh for the playoffs.... no matter the weather our offense will be unstoppable

    I know we all feel great about our offense. Lets please go defense this draft.
