    I need to vent.

    Is there someone out there on waivers that we should pick up?

    I used to view Maroney as inexpensive, taking up snaps so that others could rest. He is a ballerina, with some explosion. But goes down on first contact. (unless there is a pile that gets pushed). A near total bust of a 1st rounder.

    But that fumble cost us the game. Come on.

    You are dead wrong, and very obviously do not understand the game at all.

    No it didn't. We got the ball back at the 6 3 plays later which doesn't happen if we get the touchdown, so it basically is cancelled out.

    Looking back you can say he cost us the game but so did others..
    We could do better at that position but I think we have to wait till the 2011 draft to address that.
    BB cost us the game when it mattered most.

    Hey,
    wait KoolAid lovers, there is new information! Maroney fumbled on the .5 yard line.
    we now know that he is WORSE than we thought on saturday ! ;)

    i for one have NO IDEA why he is still on this team.

    again, apologies....i need to vent. that was just hideous.

    How many fumbles in his career? What's his fumble rate? What's the league average fumble rate? Did the offense still score 34 points? Does every RB on the pats roster fumble at a higher rate than Maroney? You having NO IDEA why he is on this team, says more about YOU than Maroney.

    will not miss you maroney please leave now. NO more defending this bust he is an absolute BUST!!!! but the blocking is bad, he doesn't get enough snaps, he's been injured... just stop no more defending him he is the alex smith of the patriots.

    You act as if he is a fumbler...That's not his weakness..
    I am no maroney fan but don't try to put this on him. he didn't help but you cant blame him for this loss.

    I agree that fumble cost the Pats the game and I have proof.

    LOL great quotes...!

    OK KoolAid didnt single handedly lose the game.....in fact he didnt cost us the game. He just messed up.

    However....:D
    If you think he stinks and then he fumbles the kill shot touchdown....you think he is even worse than you thought!

    Aww whats the point? if you cant see it now, you will never see it......
    Let me try it this way.
    We have the entire Section 239 on edge of their seats at last home game. Guiness for the whole section if/when Maroney breaks a tackle..... ! :eek:

    There is no payout! and basically no risk.

    I want maroney gone, that fumble on the one was ridiculous. I have given him the benefit of the doubt for far too long, end of the year we need to drop him and get a decent running back who is under 30 years old. I am not saying he is the sole reason we lost but I rate it up there with the asante samuel dropped int.

    How about we trade that Raiders #1 in 2011 and maybe a 4th to get a RB we want if he falls below the Rd1/pick 20 range.
