    Thought this was an interesting picture:

    good picture, gotta respect Vince Young for the season he has had, most rookie QB's who have exceeded expectations as he has would be happy with the season and move on, not Vince, that's why he will be a winner in this league, never satisfied.

    I'm all for Maroney, but the pic is a little weird. I could see patting him on the shoulder pads and saying "good game" but it looks like he's going overboard. He is the enemy. His team was cheap shotting the whole game.

    He practically decapitated Samuel. Someone should have knocked him on his ass.

    I dont see nothing wrong with a little sportsmanship, but after that game i wouldnt of wanted anything to do with the other team (the titans). I actually built a hatred towards The titans and there fans during that game.

    They'll be friends for a long time in the league. Vince is a good person, quite hard on himself same for Maroney...they'll represent the league well for a long time.

    Vince will have to play in the shadow of Brady & Manning for a few years but I'm betting he'll be top 5 in a year or 2 ... this kid is good.

    My favorite 5 this year (to watch)
    Brady
    Brees
    Manning
    Young
    Smith.

    I don't agree. It shows extreme class by Maroney and shows how important the game was to Young. He will be a great player in my opinion.

    Vince definitely had a good year, and potentially will be a truly great QB...I suspect he already 'gets it' in a way that many QBs don't.

    But you don't beat good NFL defenses anywhere near as easily as you beat USC or Big 12 defenses, Vince...that's what you learned today. Make five mistakes a game in the NFL and your season ends.

    I'm so happy San Fran won, so now Tennesse knows that we were the ones who ended their season. Suck on that all offseason.

    Wow,a player showing compassion for another player....how strange....instead of dancing around and trying to humiliate or degrade them....it will never catch on.....

    Maroney is undoubtedly a class act, his act at the end of the season is certainly acceptable after a hard fought game, suspect they became friends this year as they went through the rookie requirements together.

    Holding, (Boo!), Offense (BOOOO!).

    Dillon rushes for 3 yards (BOOO!)

    Brady pass complete for 2 yards (BOOOO!)

    You'd think one of his own teamates would be there but Maroney is going to be a great Patriot for years to come IMO.

    The rookies are all in it together,and no doubt Maroney feels his pain in that regard.
    That pic says volumes about our boy LoMo.

    How do we know what he's sayng? Maybe he's telling Vince that he sucks and should get a job at MacDonalds.

    Along this topic did you see Brady on the field post game looking all around. I think he was looking for Vince and didn't notice him still on the bench.

    This is too hilarious. When did McBee become the Minister of Team Ideological Purity?

    Anyone else enjoying the irony of McBee accusing Maroney of not being enough of a loyal Pat?

    12-03-2006:

    "I root for teams that are tough, not boring, predictable and pathetic like the Pats were today. If the pats act better, i'll root for them. I rooted for them during the chicago game even when they looked like they'd blow it. I almost resolved myself not to call them the patsies, but then today happens. Thank god I didn't make that promise.

    I figure I'll root for the pats and chargers. If they face each other in the playoffs, I'll root for the pats, but if they deserve to lose from poor play, i'll switch my allegiance and root against them. Then if they do win, I can be assured that they have survived their trial by fire and are stronger for it."

    Now our very own little McBee is in charge of keeping up the ideological purity of the team? C-L-A-S-S-I-C!!!!!!

    You never know. For all we know, Maroney could be saying, "You got you ***** kicked and go get ready for the golf tournament". :)

    I saw that , too. Brady was looking for Young and couldn't find him. They became friendly at the ESPY's I heard, and Young had some very good things to say about Brady in public in an interview last week.

    Young took that loss very hard, a sign of a big-time gamer that will be a super-star very soon. If we didn't have Brady, I'd want Young. And BTW, that hit Young made on Samuel was legal while being a bit rough...so what? A rough tackle in a football game? NO-o-o-o-o-o-!

    This absolutely cracked me up.

    But I do think it's a nice picture and I like Vince Young. I also think Jeff Fisher should be strongly considered for Coach of the Year. I remember the early season days when the Titans were arguably the worst team in the league.

    One of the soldiers in my unit went to high school in St. Louis with Laurence Maroney and talks a lot about what a great guy he was then. Said he had a lot of friends outside of the football circles and was someone everyone looked up to because he was so gracious.

    Anyway- FWIW. I saw that photo and Spc. Washington's comments immediately came to mind.

    I love that picture.

    Vince Young showed how much he wanted to win. Players with that competitive streak always end up doing well for themselves.

    Maroney shows he's a good guy and that he is probably a great teammate to have on your side.

    Amen.

    I was impressed with VY's heart and class all year long.

    And I'm proud of Lawrence, he's definitely a real Patriot-type player.

    I don't love this team just because of the "New England" on the moniker. This team and organization stands for something that fans in, say, Cinncinatti or Baltimore or Washington, DC never get to experience.

    The other players are the enemy from the starting whistle to when the clock ticks down to triple zeroes. Before and after the game the players are friends and I don't see what is wrong with this.

    Take #1

    Young: ..........
    Maroney: Hey Vince...good job out there...
    Young: ..........
    Maroney: I feel your pain man, but good game...
    Young: ...Thanks man...
    Maroney: Love to see you on our side man...seriously, you oughtta consider us someday...


    Take #2

    Young: ..........
    Maroney: I been following you since day #1 man...
    Maroney: The leadership, the skills, man, you're the best...
    Maroney: But all the cheap shots from your teammates...is very adult content...
    Maroney: So...we had to block you from the playoffs...
    Young: ...Oh man...
    Maroney: Well...have a nice day!
    Young: ...you're a nice lady...


    Seriously...I think it's a class act by LoMo

    Your overexaggerating. Decapitated? Thats ridiculous. He took a snippet of Samuel's face mask and gave him a little clothesline to the ground. Its not as if he grabbed the middle of Samuel's facemask held on tight yanked it back. It was NOTHING.

    I saw this pic and I was wondering whether I'd post it somewhere because I thought it was a cool picture. Maroney's awesome. You could see that Young was very dissapointed, Maroney could just be celebrating but he also took time to visit Young and talk to him on the sidelines. Good man. :D

    I wish I had the picture of Maroney hugging Dillon, I think after Maroney scored the TD or when he broke OJ's record.

    Notice that Dillon seems to picking up a bit of steam as the playoffs begin? No wonder he wasn't upset about the Maroney pick. We now have two sets of relatively fresh legs to pound it in the postseason. And yes, Maroney seems like a class act, a patriots kind of guy.

    Difference between good sportsmanship and bad, I suppose.

    To me, one of the nice things about football is the way the players play full tilt during the game, yet are able meet on the field afterwards and talk and shake hands. It bothers me that this is not allowed to happen after the Superbowl.

    We may dispise Peyton, but Brady and Manning are friends.
