    Last night on Sportstonight, Michael Felger recommended starting BJGE this week and benching Maroney. His guest, former Patriot TE Christian Fauria replied that "I wish we could put an electronic harness around Maroney so that every time he starts to dance we could press a button and shock him from the sidelines".

    Its not out of the question. What would be the harm to see what BJGE on the first series of the game?

    If he does good, keep him in. If he doesnt, take him out.

    Simple

    The harm is that this may not be in the game plan... to cater a gameplan, based on what you want to see is not in the best interest of this team..

    If I needed any more proof that Felger is retarded, this covers it.

    I only listen to Felger for his views on hockey. You know, like when he says Tim Thomas is the worst starting goalie in the NHL. They must give those Vezinas out like candy.

    What is retarded is to keep starting a back that has 8 yards on 7 carries.

    Re: Felger: Start Ben Jarvis Green Ellis

    I don't really want any of the RBs to be anywhere near the main guy,I would like a mixture of all 4 mixing it up on offensive series unless one of them sticks out and deserves more play.

    None of these guys should be said to have the definite starting position,The competition is too close for that,Right now IMO Maroney is on the bottom of the list if you regard popularity but BB does not care what we or anyone thinks anyway.

    Morris has been awesome lately,If anyone deserves to carry more carries based on his productivity so far its Sammy.

    I don't mind Felger, but he does say a lot of dumb things at times.

    Re: Felger: Start Ben Jarvis Green Ellis

    i would like to see BJGE play but i cant see him going from not even playing in the first 4 game to being a starter

    as far as maroney go's he has averaged 11 att a game for he's Career he only has 2 game's of 20 att in he's Career

    both in 2007 and both game's vs the jets 20 att for 72yerd's and 26 att for 104yerd's so in he's career he has just two 20 att game's in the Regular Season

    this year the pats leading RB taylor was only averageing 11 att a game

    even the not so great starting RB in the NFL get 20 to 25 att a game

    this is a pass first team so unless they sign corey dillon back i dont care who the starting RB he will not get 20att a game every week

    Agreed about Felger and that he's a joke.

    However, does anyone want to comment about what Christian Fauria said????

    All the backups, its the new plan. Start the worst players and see if they do good then let them keep playing.

    Can anyone confirm that is what he said? Its what a poster paraphrased, which is not always accurate.

    BJGE won't start unless Maroney and probably Morris get hurt. Just deal with it and move on

    What does he know?

    He thinks he sees Maroney dancing, not hitting the hole.

    My eyes are playing the same trick on me.

    Maybe I will get some glasses so that I can see the truth :rolleyes:

    I guess Bruschi is an as$hole too for saying this week that Laurence is still dancing at the LOS and not doing much :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Face it Maroney lovers,even your favorite son Bruschi says he sees little in LoMo...Its Morris time IMO

    Given that Light himself noted that the blocking failed a lot on the runs this past week, and given that he's seen the tapes that Bruschi hasn't, I'll go with Light on this one.

    RB by committee, not sure the title of starter has much meaning. I hope all the RB's perform well. I am glad that BJGE was kept on the roster, and that decision will pay dividends this week (many didn't want to keep law firm).

    So what you are saying Deus is that Taylor ran 7 times for 25 yards which is not great but even worse was Laurence who ran 7 times for 6 yards ..so what you are saying is in those VERY same carries between Maroney and Taylor is that the OL didn't perform well during all of LoMo's runs but were substantially better in all of Fred's 7 carries?.....Thats ridiculous

    Fred pushed his way to 25 yards...albeit not that great but LoMo pushed his way to less than a yard per carry.....and you guys wonder why the majority of the fans booed loudly and louder than any boos I have heard since Bledsoe was throwing picks in Shaeffer

    Considering that they were running predominantly in different formations and different circumstances, that's not ridiculous at all. As is usually the case with you, your severely limited understanding of football makes things seem a lot simpler and more cut-and-dry than they really are.

    At what point are you going to factor in that they were facing the best run defense in the NFL? Nobody can run effectively on the Ravens, and that includes Taylor and Maroney both.

    And I don't wonder why the majority of fans were booing loudly. The majority of our fans are idiots, and they were just as stupid when they were booing Bledsoe as they are now.

    You know a lot about football more than I, so the question is when is Sports Illustrated or USA Today calling to hire you?

    There are so many maroons in here with excuses galore and failing hopes year after year for an obvious worthless #1 draft pick that BB and Pioli blew thier first pick on that its downright hilarious to see you guys grabbing your nuts holding on to hope :rofl:. - Maroney blows...get over it

    If Chad Jackson were still here we would have the same 'give him time' bullsh!t that some of you spew out - BB and Pioli had a horrid 1st and 2nd 2006 draft,thank goodness that was not the norm

    7 carries for 6 yards...yeah,I don't know why we are arguing ,Maroney is great! :rofl: :rofl:

    I don't know what type of talent there will be in the 2010 draft for RBs,I hope we look hard at them
