Maroney was very animated all day today. During pre-game warmups ... on the sideline ... on the field. He is running powerfully and with confidence. He has stepped up in all areas of the game and he deserves some credit for it. He may never be a 100 yard a game guy ... but today he was a major reason they won and it was not just what he did when carrying the ball. Maroney, Welker and Faulk were showing their leadership today. Even in the rough first half they were trying to get their team pumped. I for one was wrong about him - he's learned to run differently and he's learned to help lead his team. Today he was a great team leader.
