    I'm only half-way through it and I had to pause it to say. Oh My God.

    Very Good Job.

    I did notice that he always seem to head to the sideline and that caused concern. Then on several runs during the second half of the reel, he did look to cut up toward the middle when it was there. No concerns any more.

    Excellent work, Hendrix. It gives me something other than the "Best Maroney Video" to watch 10 times a day. The season is so far away. :mad:

    Thanks

    think it might be his vision though too. He may see he can get more yardage by going out of bounds, but getting a few extra yards that way instead of cutting in possibly.

    Man, I've been a Maroney fan for a while and watched him play several times in college but that little tape of yours is stunning! Most impressive is how quickly he accelerates - his mid range burst is simply fantastic. YOW!!!

    I think that's indicative of almost all good college RBs. The problem is they don't need to cut it up the middle. Even watching the USC highlights LenDale White would bounce it outside all the time. He sure ain't gonna be doin' that in the pros.

    I don't think Maroney is a pure outside runner at all. We're definitely going to be seeing him slamming it up the gut. Not every play, mind you. His bread and butter is going to be off tackle, but he's not going to shy away from the inside runs.

    Great job thanks!! Maroney is the real deal...can NOT wait for the season to see him and Corey running the ball and making the defenses have to be a lot more honest about a running game.

    Very quick and has more power than I'd given him credit for. He'll help this year but in 15 months when he's bulked up a little, he could be a legit power back. On those clips every time he breaks loose he looks like he's going all the way.

    Sorry Hendrix, I forgot your not even a Patriots fan, but thanks for the great videos. I love the one play against wisconsin where Maroney makes one quick stutter step and takes a no gainer and turns it into a 50 yard run.

    The thing I like most about my homie Maroney is his ability to just plant one foot and get himself up field. He has a no bull**** type of running attitude and watching him develop over the preseason and then into the playoffs is going to be cool. A backfield of Dillon, Maroney and Faulk in the snow of Foxborough is going to be sick. Add in our unbelievable TE combinations and we are definately going to be playing some hard ass smashmouth football.
    Now, if Jackson can contribute as a rookie, our offense is going to be potent. Let us all just pray right now that the injury bug doesnt hit again.

    (oh, and I wasnt implying that Maroney is actually MY homie. It just rhymed and made me feel cool:)

    Good stuff. The more I watch this kid in action, the more I love this draft pick! We haven't had a breakaway threat like this at RB since Curtis Martin. Any time he touches the ball he can take it to the house.

    OT question for Hendrix: Judging by your username, is it safe to assume you are a Jimi fan?

    Gonna be a great 1-2 combo. Dillion softens them up, then the break away threat from Maroney. Meanwhile the "D" is sippin Gatorade and studying photos on the sidelines...

    Very nice..thank you Hendrix. All i can say is..Boomer better be getting that "WOOOOT" after big runs and nice moves because Maroney will be breaking big runs and cutting on dimes. For some that say..well a great RB never cuts to side like that and r uns east-west. well you can tell in that video hes confident about ability and speed to be able to "Free Lance" and take it to the house. Cant wait

    People have been looking to label Maroney's running style, and I'd say it's distinct, with elements of several good runners. He does resemble Edgerrin James, with the shorter, choppier steps he takes, especially behind the line. He's not a long strider. He gets up to full speed fast like James, too, and that same style of running before he hits the hole, what I call cannonball running. He'll stay behind his blockers, watch for a hole, and once it appears, it's like he's shot out of a cannon and up the field, through the hole. No wasted effort. He also resembles Clinton Portis, again with the shorter strides, but more knee lift, like Portis or pre-injury James. He has the same shiftiness as Portis, in his shoulders, and his cutback moves. And he has a little Tony Dorsett, in the way he runs through the line. He can make himself thin, then get his shoulders squared fast, swivel his hips, and quickly accelerate after his cut to outrun converging defenders on both sides, and he has good leg strength and the instinct to kick his legs out to avoid being brought down by arm tackles. He doesn't have Dorsett's high leg kick while running, or the agility Dorsett had though, but a simliar style of "power" runs. If Maroney can turn his talent into production, he could be a player in the class of any of the three, which is pretty exciting.

    WOW, great video. I personally like his run against Tulsa where he hops over one guy then just completely breaks the safeties ankles with a juke. Then takes it 75 yards for the TD

    What of the remaining 25%?

    I can relate to your JH influence ..... I play slide primarily because of Duane Allman.
