    I know Green-Ellis was playing the second stringers, but the guy has power and speed when he runs and Maroney was less than impressive tonight so I say, and I may be going out on a limb here, make BJGE the starting RB or at least get a majority of the carries with Morris...let Maroney fight for scraps...

    BJGE was playing against the 2nd and 3rd stringers.. So, yeah, he looked good.. :rolleyes:

    So did Morris... running against the 2nd stringers...

    I didn't see the 1st string O-line opening many holes.. Oh.. do you know how many of Maroney's carries were for negative yardage tonight? NONE..

    i think you should wait and see on this before you make this judgment. it was his first game back from a pretty bad injury. i do agree that letting maroney battle is a good idea, but to thnk BJGE is better based on tonight's performance is probably a little premature

    Morris got stuffed on a two run shot at getting a first down against the Eagles backups, but that's ignored by the Maroney bashers.

    I thought the chat was a lot better (before it lagged out on me). You can yell at the Chicken Littles in live motion. :cool:

    I went to the chat until the system died the first time. I figured once was enough for an exhibition game.

    I would love to see Maroney in KR. He was great his rookie year, and his skill set is great in the open field. You have to keep a talent like Maroney on this team. Period.

    I hope Box will forgive me, but I'm just so tired of the anti-Maroney nonsense after one bloody exhibition game that I'm going to quote some of his work from another location in the futile hope that some of the people who insist on bashing the guy without actually knowing what they are talking about will either accept the observations of a quality poster like Box, or will at least be inspired to actually take the time to look at the plays:

    I agree. Law firm has a good upside ............. maybe we could get a draft choice.

    Killjoy. You simply refuse to accept that half the fun of this place is just venting, and then you ruin it when they think they have selected a safe target. And on a night when there were few.

    I expect Walter will be next up since because of him KOC only had time to showcase how to blow a taking a knee.

    If that had been Maroney these people would have been absolutely losing it. But since it's Morris (who has missed exactly as many games since he's been a Patriot as Maroney, and is less effective when he plays), it's magically okay because Morris is a good football player and has vision and doesn't dance etc. etc. etc.

    And I'm not even bashing Morris, who I like. But anyone who can't see that Maroney is better apparently doesn't know what to look for.

    You look for the number "39" and imagine a bullseye right between them (which is also why Seymour gets so many pot shots, but that's from the numerically challenged). :snob:

    What about Taylor? I would rather have Fred Taylor and Sammy Morris sharing the load before BJGE gets on the field.

    Not sure with 6 running plays in a pre season game you can tell much of anything.. we do know in the past he has been a very effective runner.

    Despite some injuries, Maroney has a 4.3 ypc ( 388 carries) during his tenure in Foxboro... while BJGE has a 3.7 ypc (75 carries)... things are not always what they appear to be.
