    According to Felger there was a box of diapers in Maroney's locker today. He said nobody knew if it was a joke from a teammate or a message from the coaches.

    Anybody else hear the story?

    If true I think it was a BB as a message.

    Re: diapers

    Yeah I can picture Belichick ordering an assistant to put diapers in Maroney's locker. :rolleyes:

    Re: diapers

    Hmmmm, wasn't something similar to this done to Larry Johnson early in his career before he began playing the way he was capable of?

    Consider also that Maroney said that he wasn't aware of any any injury, yet he didn't see a lot of action against Buffalo, and none in the second half, and that's with an injured Faulk. Starts to make sense.

    Re: diapers

    Not quite sure I get it. Yes, I get Diapers=Baby but about what ? Not playing through pain ? A little whiny to the media ? Not hitting the hole hard ?

    Re: diapers

    I hope its true. Maroney needs something to kick him in the arse and get him going.

    BB or locker room leaders.....either way is good for me.

    I think for whining to the media Bfan.

    Not hitting the hole hard...at least. He's so tentative at the line that he gives tacklers an edge on him all the time.

    Re: diapers

    I've been supportive and saying give him time but if this is true then the message means somebody wants him to grow up and be tougher. I'm sure it extends to on the field and off.

    Re: diapers

    Whare's Parcells when we need him? Based on Maroney's prior quotes about not altering his running style despite being asked to, I think we have a glimpse of a problem. The good news is he seems to be a team player and willing to fill a role. Let's see if the kid can mature.

    Re: diapers

    That's a bit fucked up if true. If it is then I can't imagine it being a cute little joke, some his teammates are pissed and are trying to send a message. Not sure if Maroney is the type to sulk even more or if this motivates him. Let's hope his production increases from this point on because I don't want to spend a top five pick on a RB.

    Re: diapers

    Just waiting for the Maroney/Pats homer brigade to come full force into this thread to defend their boy. Does it suprise ANYONE that there must be players and coaches on this team that are getting tired of Maroney always getting nicked up and failing to play thru pain? The guy runs like he has high heel pumps on. I applaud the coach or player that put the diapers in his locker. The guy is a baby and a BUST.

    According to Felger? What kind of access does the Cheesehead have?

    He wouldn't just make something like that up as fodder for his radio show, would he?

    Re: diapers

    Yup...I remember seeing him at Minn. and being SOOOO excited when the Pats drafted him. Combination of size, speed and a hardnosed running style. He needs to start plowing through the holes rather than prancing behind the line hoping something bigger opens up for him.

    And yes, I realize he has a decent average this season. Just about anyone would when you have the air attack the Pats do.

    Re: diapers

    I'll say this....there's something funny going on with Maroney. To have him completely disappear for a half against Buffalo and then not appear on the injury report is weird. As others have pointed out, there is the interview about altered running style. I think there is a problem, maybe not a big one, but there's something going on here. It's just fortunate that we have the passing game to more than make up for it.

    When the weather turns bad, Maroney is going to have to be the back he is being asked (and paid) to be. I hope he can step up.

    Re: diapers

    Belichick pulled Maroney vs. the Bills because of his poor play.

    He also put the diapers at his locker.

    Someone had to do it.

    Re: diapers

    Felger is a contrarian who's always trying to stir the pot and play devil's advocate but I've never caught him in a flat out lie. This is not the type of thing you can say and then take back. He would lose all credibility if he did. I don't he he would take the Ron Borges career suicide pill over something like this.

    That's right, Parcells. Remember "Theresa" Glenn? That guy turned it around, although I don't know what's up with him now.

    Re: diapers

    I think it's a terrible thing if true.

    If BB has a problem with him, you speak to him as a man. Don't put something in his locker like a little b*tch to embarass him in front of his comrades.

    I doubt BB did it, if it was done at all.

    The other aspect is that Maroney MAY be the type to sulk. It says "you're not working hard, we don't respect you". That's not what you want to say to a guy who, in his mind, is risking his neck every week for the team. I could see it going over like a lead balloon. You can't call someone a baby and not basically be calling their character out, calling them a bum.

    Not defending Maroney, although sometimes when he's in there I think it's too obvious that he's going to be running it. It must be; he gets to the line and there are 5 guys waiting for him. No holes at all.

    Re: diapers

    I detected something strange about his remark. Frankly, I think he wants to hold onto some prior style or habits that they want him to lose, and he may be afraid to take the leap.

    He'll have to. Perhaps it was the fact that it was the last quarter or so, but Eckyl and Heath hit the holes hard and took no prisoners. If I'm not mistaken, that's what they want the kid to do too. He seems unable to pull the trigger.

    Even at that he's effective at times.

    He got benched. That's about it. He got benched, he got a message in his locker, and now he's got to start running the way they want him to run for the remainder of the year. Hell, it's not like he didn't have Cory around to show him last year. And Cory scored 13 times.

    Re: diapers

    im a stout maroney supporter, but ur bias of them is very saddening...

    im not gonna kiss his *****, like ur kickin it, but if the diapers were a joke, who cares...

    the interesting part comes if the coaches put them there, then yea, the message it grow up, ur not in college anymore, play like a man...

    either way, if its by the coaches, how bout they let him touch the ball AT LEAST, 10 times a game, BETTER if its 15, THEN they can complain b/c of production

    Good one! The best way to shore up a weak position is to ridicule the other person's opinion beforehand. Works in politics, no reason why it won't work here.
