A lot of you have pegged me a "Maroney-hater", and while I think "hate" is a really strong word, I have no problem owning up to the fact that I am not a big fan of this kid. That said, if I am willing to come on this board and slam him whne he sucks, I will also man-up and come on and give him props when he plays well. And yesterday, against a pretty good run defense, he played well. He ran hard, put his head down and crashed piles, and generally looked confident, even after his early fumble, which is a good sign. He got his YPC up from 2.4 vs. the Colts to 3.5 vs. the Jets. And the TDs yesterday were sweet. My favorite run, though, was the 9-yard run when he almost scored just before his second TD. He busted through a linebacker and a couple of secondary players. Good, hard-nosed running! I pray that we see more of this Laurence Maroney down the stretch because we're going to need him, especially since Fred Taylor & Sammy Morris can't really be counted on right now. I am hoping those two will be ready for the playoffs. They're getting planty of rest and rehab time, that's for sure. Finally, I just gotta say this: WES FORKING WELKER! All my buddies down in South Florida must be kicking themselves for letting that kid go! JEESUZ!
