    Dare I say it? on this board?

    On some runs it almost looks like every one is standing still.

    Maroney's cut back ability and agility really punishes team that jam receivers and play man coverage often.

    Right from the first drive maroney got the screen play busted a huge gain 33 yards. Near the end of the first quarter he almost got a touch down all on his own by moving a huge pile. On that 3rd and 1 the jaguars loaded 7 in the box and maroney still managed to rampage.

    At the begining of the 3rd his huge run on the shot gun draw play, and same with the draw play from the shotgun postion in the 3rd for anther huge gain down the sideline. In the future we will see him break more of these runs for touchdowns. Maroney didnt loose steam in the 3rd quarter at all, some of his best runs made in the 3rd quarter.

    Remember all those Maroney is a bust threads... as many of us suspected Maroney was saved for the end of the marathon, when he is really needed as a weapon.. he was a beast last night.

    he could have easily got 2 more tds last night, 4 tds total if you ask me.
    That is why Iam thinking he can set records in the the superbowl game. Most rushing tds, 5 rushing tds?

    those shotgun draw plays really open the field for maroney to kick it on to high gear then the defense fears.

    By my count he danced once, but the O-line gave him nowhere to go. Other than that, he hit the holes hard and lowered his pads once he made contact.

    All in all, you have to be impressed with his performance.

    I think that the secret weapon is his ability in the open field after catching passes. Granted they've thrown to him only 6 times this year but the results are 43,25,12,36,33,7 yds...an average of 26.0 ypc.....
    If not in the playoffs, I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of that next year as his blocking ability improves and he's on the field for more passing plays...
