Footballoutsiders.com ranks Maroney #3 in overall production and in success rate per play after 3 games (http://footballoutsiders.com/stats/rb.php). The only thing that can stop Laurence is injury. If he can remain durable, his intelligence will mesh with his instincts and he will become amazing. He has to try to avoid unnecessary big hits, like the brutal one he suffered on his last carry vs. Buffalo. He got up a bit staggered and seemed shaken as he left the field. He didn't appear in any post game TV or print interviews, which is unusual. I'm not sure whether he is avoiding the press after what he may have perceived as a negative story about his "dancing" last week, or whether he was injured. I noticed he shook BB's hand after the game crossing the field, so he seemed functional. We know he kept playing last season with significant injury to his ribs and shoulders, maybe even damaging himself further, during the Pats' playoff run. I'm sure he has plenty of respect in the locker room for that, and should have it from the fans. Once again, my only question with Maroney is durability. The more he plays, the better he'll become.
