    Being a native from Beantown and moving to Minnesota I wanted to let you all know that Maroney will not let anyone down, I have spent the past 3 years as a Gopher season ticket holder and have been amazed everytime he got the ball, trust me big things will happen, Dillion needs to watch his back!

    Most of us are optimistic about his addition.
    Someone posted some video hi lights. Very impressive.
    Can't wait for the season to begin.

    I appreciate the sentiment, and I am pshyched about maroney. I love the highlight film with the Irish music.

    But, I am skeptical about anyone who says they are from Boston, and calls it "Beantown" ... unless he writes for a newspaper.

    Is this thread somehow connected to the 'Brady just may make the team this year thread?' Because I can't imagine why we wouldn't give a first rounder a chance.

    Well, he might make a good addition to the practice squad and then with some hard work and coaching might actually become a quality back-up. :rolleyes:

    I don't know about you guys, but I had already written him off, especially now that we've got Klecko at fullback.

    I'd say a year or two in NFL Europe might help a bit.

    I agree with someone on page 1 - is there ANY chance Pats fans WON'T give Maroney a chance? We're thrilled to have him.

    Is Beantown considered that bad? Been gone from N.E. too long. The worst would be for someone from San Francisco calling it "Frisco". They hate that out here.

    Once Maroney has mastered picking up the blitz and running a bit more downhill, I think the keys to the car are his and Dillion's role is reduced. And while I seriously doubt it'll happen by the start of the season, I could see it happening sometime in his first year.

    I think the original poster was not questioning whether Maroney would make the team, but whether he would get the touches. I know Cobbs was a 4th rounder, but how many did he get?

    I really like his potential, but when he cuts back like against Wisconsin, instead of outrunning the field like he did, he could have a DL come down the line and trip him up. It's a whole different game in the pros.

    I believe one of the biggest adjustments is the need to pick up the rushers -- remember how Larry Johnson got slammed in the press for making a half-hearted dive at a blitzer?
