    Means nothing in NE, but for Maroney depth...

    Maroney gets buried on the depth chart | ProFootballTalk.com

    Surely doesn't affect how the Patriots will aproach specific opponents, but I thought this was interesting. Maroney low on "depth chart".

    Question : why would teams even create depth charts ? Everyone knows it means nothing on Sunday.

    I believe the depth charts are done by PFW.. not by Bill Belichick...

    Florio garbage. He's got nothing to say, but needs to say something.

    This is my read on how Maroney will be used. If the coaching staff senses that the O line has control of the line, then Maroney will get many opportunities. If the line play is neutral or worse, the pounders will be used. As BB says ...it is what it is...we all know his game...indecisive when approaching a clogged LOS.

    Apparently Florio missed this at the top of the depth cart page:


    Unless Belichick starts letting Paul Perillo and Andy Hart make the depth chart, I doubt this is any real insight into Belichick's real depth chart.​

    Good one. The top of the chart part is quite telling as well... friggin Florio.

    Wow, that depth chart is full of news!

    I didn't realize that Sam Aiken is going to be backing up Welker, while Edelman is the understudy for Galloway!

    And check it out, Shawn Springs is starting over Wilhite after all.

    And the biggest item of all: they're sticking with the 3-4 base. But they must really lack confidence in Woods, because he has 3 backups and Thomas has none. That's pretty scary if Thomas goes down, huh?

    News I tell you, NEWS!

    In watching the Titans the other night, I noticed that Chris Johnson looks like a faster duplicate of Maroney. They run the same way, with Maroney having a little more power. The Titans O-line is built for running though, and that makes a huge difference. Maroney just might be successful somewhere else in the NFL.

    On this team, he will likely only get 12-15 carries a game and maybe 2 or 3 passes, and not in every game either, and in some seasons our OL has been inconsistent in run blocking.

    Hopefully Maroney plays his role well this year and gets his yards and helps us win. He will probably go to another team for more money in the future and maybe he can land with a team structured around the run game.

    Clearly he is a threat in the open field.

    :) It is indeed pretty scary if Thomas goes down, and not very scary if Woods goes down.

    Re: Maroney Buried on Depth Chart

    This is a redundant thread.

    But while we are at it, when did Belichick decide to relinquish his depth chart creation responsibilities to the guys at Patriots Football Weekly. Maybe if he doesn't like their depth chart, he might want to call Borges at the Herald and give him a pass at it.

    The Pats do not publish their depth chart.

    Re: Maroney Buried on Depth Chart

    to be honest, i didn't know the Pats had a depth chart, or at least one that they made public. he's been in the same place on the Pats Web Page's "Unofficial Depth Chart" for a long time, so maybe somebody is just reaching for a story.

    Trying to imagine a presser where BB is asked about his depth chart...

    Q: Coach, can you tell us how you rank your RB's going into the season?
    A: As a coaching staff, we're always looking at players, how they're doing, where they need to get better.

    Q: But how do you look at them when you think about comparing one to another?
    A: Well, if we see something that needs improvement, we get to work on it right away.

    Q: Specifically, Coach, where do you put, say Maroney, in relation to the others?
    A: He's right up there, I mean he works hard at practice and listens to the Coaches.

    Q: So, you don't have a system for ranking Laurence or the other backs?
    A: (slight Belichickian smile) Well, Maroney's number is 39, so I guess that puts him ahead of some guys and behind maybe another...are there any other questions?

    Are you Belichick's speech writer?

    Re: Maroney Buried on Depth Chart

    Watch Maroney start tomorrow. It wouldn't surprise me, since he was still the starter last year. I'm hoping Fred starts, personally.

    Re: Maroney Buried on Depth Chart

    I expect Morris to start (a nod to his consistent contributions over the past 2 years) and split time more or less equally with Taylor. As someone (I forget who) stated here yesterday, Maroney's playing time is likely to depend on the early success of the offensive line. If the line is mauling out there, expect Maroney to get 8-10 touches. If the line is struggling, Maroney might warm the bench.

    I do think Maroney will be the primary kick returner while Slater and Edelman get healthy.
