    Waste of a fantasy pick. On the bench he goes.

    Are these sources as reliable as those that told us he was on the chopping block? :bricks:

    Well, don't rain on his parade; this probably made Crowell's day.

    Anyway, the source for this information is Ian Rapoport's Twitter, despite the fact that, from what I can see, Ian hasn't posted anything to that effect.

    I would think in this game Brady will be throwing 3 to 1 in terms of pass to run so I would not expect any running back to do much of anything anyway...Fred Taylor will probably lead the team with 30 yards in this game.

    I think Belichick will be going to his TEs A LOT in this game and could be a test to see if they take thier game a step up from preseason and also expect Tate to become a prominent target if the Bengals solid secondary takes away Moss and Welker...Brady could throw 40 times in this game.

    The source is actually John Clayton of ESPN.

    I can't believe you actually drafted him. Maroney isn't even close to being relevant.

    It's actually not that bad, the larger the league size the more relevant he becomes. If you ever try a 16man league (I'm in one this year) you'd be surprised how thin it can get, very quickly.

    If true he is the source Maroney could be playing and rack up 100 yards and a couple of TDs tomorrow :rolleyes:

    How many in here really believe that Maroney playing or not in tomorrow's game will make a difference in the outcome? :rolleyes:

    Tom's airing it 40 times sunday anyway,Here is to hoping he is not mauled by Odom which I am worrying about- Odom is a hard hitter and Matt Light struggles with edge type rushers

    There seems to be nothing more to this than regurgitating the speculation based on misunderstanding preseason playing time.

    Yeah, I agree. I think they are basing this off him not really playing in preseason. I really would love to see Maroney with the start tomorrow because I want him to finally have a good year.

    Starting is irrelevant but I expect that we will see tomorrow that the plan is what the plan has always been, Maroney and Taylor will alternate at RB.

    Actually, if the information in question is being sourced from the link provided, the source is Ian Rapoport. Clayton says nothing specifically regarding Maroney being deactivated while healthy.

    I'm not seeing any pertinent comment from either Clayton or Rappaport. It's certainly possible that one of them speculated on this, but there's nothing original that I've been able to track down.

    They provide a link to Rappaport twitter that says Maroney was in pads for practice, nothing resembling the comment attributed to him.

    I believe the Rapoport link is just the information that Maroney is healthy. The belief that Maroney may not play whether healthy or not, is the commentary of the Rotoworld website.

    That's what I'm saying. The blurb about Maroney being a DNP is in an entry that is attributed to Rapoport. But Rapoport doesn't have anything about it on his Twitter. So it basically seems like analysis written by an anonymous Rotoworld writer, and not based on anything concrete.

    Apparently Rotoworld is your type of site. pathetically obsessed with Maroney to the point they strain the truth out of their own sources until they can twist it into something else.

    I don't understand your post. An NBC owned website said that Maroney may DNP even if he his healthy. My thread title says "NBC : Maroney may DNP even if healthy ". Which word in the thread title do you find so objectionable?
