    Man....This guy looks good. I like the young guys like Watson, Maroney, and Would like to see if Jackson can get out there, a potential Blue Chip Offensive Trio to give Brady some weapons over the next 5 years!!

    Yep! If you look at my earlier posts, I predicted and thought Maroney would be the best pick available. I am football!

    Maybe it's the adrenaline of the first football game that included the patriots in seven months, or maybe it's the beer... but that one was funny.

    Yes he does, and conversely Addai did squat for the Colts last night.

    BWAAHAAHAAHAA! :D

    Please let them keep Cobbs in place of Pass or Faulk. I don't want to see them try to slip him onto the practice squad. I'm still bummed about losing Eckel and Chapman.

    Obviously it's way too early to call the election, but Maroney had 66 yards on 9 carries and Addai had 3 yards on 3 carries. I'd say the early returns look good for us and bad for them. :p

    Evans did not do much other then the gimme tough down. Cobbs was looking like he belonged in that back field.

    Dillon, Maroney, Faulk,Cobbs and sorta Mills, our running game will be light years ahead of last year. :rocker:

    Pass needs to watch out or he'll be cut, especially with his health issues plus Mills and Cobbs both looking good.

    I guess we'll have to see how he looks on grass but he looked sick out there tonight. Burst, power, attitude. Stud.

    I agree. Especially since the vision of him grabbing a hamstring and dropping the football is too strong a memory for me to get rid off. Pass does good things and I may get hammered for saying this, but that one play spoke too much about what he was willing to do for the team. I've seen players come up lame due to hamstring injuries, but none of them let go of the football like that.

    And every ex player I heard said the same thing. It's a shame but I don't think Pass will be here this year.

    Very impressed with Maroney, but not ready for Canton yet, this offense with two quality backs who can grind it out may be something we have not seen in a long time. Dillon is obviously better than last year, could be because he is being pushed.

    Loved Maroney. He seemed very psyched. Dillon was hitting it hard, too. Best of all, the line looked very ready in the first quarter. Started my day at 4:30 am, so I couldn't make it through 2nd quarter, though.

    The best part of Maroney was that he seems to run with alot of aggresiveness and power. I knew he had the speed. He was bouncing off guys and he picked up alot of yards after the first hit. He knows hot to hit a hole to, not to much dancing around.

    Some of the scouting reports mentioned that he was a little smallish for the NFL. He looked like a monster out there to me. Thunder and Lightning Baby!!!

    Man, it will be a along time before I stop smiling over Maroney. I was stunned when we picked him over the linebacker.
    But after watching him last night for the first time, all I can say is WOW! It's been a long time since we had a back like that on our team. Defenses better catch him before he gets through the hole or he'll be gone and he's hard to stop once he gets going. The combo of Dillon/Maroney/Faulk is going to be fun to watch. :D

    Maroney does have the Burst, The Speed, and all that good stuff......But what impressed me the most was his BALANCE........He has the perfect center of Gravity for a RB where they are hard to get down. Except for the play where he was met in the backfield, he never went down on the first hit. The big question will be if he progresses on this pace at about Game 7 does our running game become a 1 1/2 - 1/2 punch instead of a 1-2 Punch.......With Maroney getting the 1 1/2 carries....If that happens how will Dillon handle it???

    I'm officially on the Maroney bandwagon. I thought that Corey looked great too. But he looks like the real deal! I was also very impressed with Mills last night.

    Now image that offense with some actual NFL wide receivers on the field!

    :rofl: By the way, what are the chances of finding a picture of Yoda with a Kool Aid pitcher in his hand?!? :D

    Agree with DRules.... I'm starting to get over not picking one of my first round LBs.

    As a rival fan, I'm not a happy camper today.:( I thought Maroney looked great last night. Power, shiftiness, and nice speed through the hole. He's got a bright future ahead of him in my opinion. Great draft pick, I hate it!!....:mad:
