    I looked for stats on this but couldn't find it: What is Maroney's rushing average on first down? It seems like most times he runs the ball on first down it's 2 yards, then he leaves the game and Brady's back in the shotgun on the next play.

    Also, how many sure interceptions has Meriweather dropped?

    Just a couple nitpicking thoughts to warm the heart on Christmas Eve. :singing:

    I can't give you that number, but I can give you something. Football Outsiders uses a measure called Success Rate ("A measure of running back consistency based on the percentage of carries where the player gains 40% of needed yards on first down, 60% of needed yards on second down, or 100% of needed yards on third or fourth down.").

    Maroney has a success rate of 59%--the second-highest number in the league.

    does it really matter how many balls he dropped? the kid looked good in coverage and made some great hits.

    Didn't Asante have bad hands in his first couple years?

    I think Merriweather still gets so jacked up that the game is moving pretty fast mentally and he ends up dropping it.

    I think he has been coming along. it was huge that Baker and Jackson got cut... that was a huge show of confidence for Merriweather.

    He's gonna get alot better next season and thereafter
