    Re: NESN.com Predicts Maroney to be cut.

    no one will trade for him? The leads are weak.

    I would love it if the Maroney Bashing ended tonight. Lets at least give him until his first fumble on the 1-yard line. The bottom line is Maroney is the least of our worries, he actually did a pretty damn good job tonight, averaging more than 4 yards a carry with very little help from his line. He's not a star and will probalby never be, but he's just as good if not better than half the rb's in the nfl. Lets' focus on how soft our defense is, if we want to complain about things.

    I can't see Maroney getting cut. Even though his numbers don't show it, he's our most talented running back.

    The article suggested Kaczur might go on PUP, so I doubt it was put together with a great deal of thought ...

    Maroney averaged 3.6 yards per carry tonight for a total of 32 yards.

    I'm not his biggest fan but he gives you good production for what he earns.

    Too replace him would cost more and Belichick is big on production / value.

    Barring injury, Maroney will have the most carries on the Patriots this year...probably by far. I think he'll have a good year.

    I don't know. The evidence doesn't seem to support the idea Belichick's not using him appropriately. Belichick hasn't exactly been reluctant to run the ball when he's had a quality back to hand off to in the backfield.

    Given the injury history of Morris and Taylor, letting Maroney go would be just another bone-headed decision from BB.

    I have been a major Maroney basher the past couple years.

    I would be shocked if we cut Maroney and kept BJGE.

    Did you see BJGE get arm taclked at the 1 inch line?
    BJGE has shown me nothing this year.

    I would welcome a trade for another RB, but please do not pick
    BJGE over Maroney.

    BJGE gets cut......not sure if they keep 5 RB's at this point...too many needs at other positions....DL..OL...LB

    Jenkins raised his stock as did Myers....too bad no room on final 53 for them.

    Don't see this at all.. think BB is trying to make him "hungry", but other than that people read too much into every decision..

    I knew Maroney should have piled through the two defensive lineman and the MLB who were in the backfield as soon as he took the handoff. If he can't do that, then this bum doesn't deserve to be wearing a Flying Elvis. Get his useless ass out of Foxboro.

    I thought he showed improvement last night. One fewer stutter steps before accelerating. And his acceleration is top drawer, among the best in the league. He's below average at making people miss, but if he can continue to reduce the time it takes him to decide on a path and accelerate into it, he's a good back. A little below average for a starting NFL back (there are a lot of very good ones out there now).

    The big problem I see with the Pats running game is that neither Morris nor Taylor is really an outside running threat. I know they have Faulk, but on first and second down they really need someone to keep the linebackers honest. Maroney at least can get to the edge. I don't understand what's going on with him, but to me he has to be one of the two lead backs. They were outstanding in 2007 with him and Morris in the beginning of the year.

    I can't see Maroney being traded or cut at this stage. If BB wanted to trade he would have showcased Maroney more in the pre-season games, and not kept him back until the second teams emerged in the 4h and most meaningless game.

    I could see it as a decoy move though, at least for the first 2 games as the Bengals and Jets prepare for a 1-2-3 of Taylor, Morris and Faulk.

    I continue to be amazed by the abyssmal ignorance displayed by sports reporters. Kaczur on PUP for example and worse yet the Maroney cut hysteria. If there is one RB whose stock plummeted last night it was bjge who turned a TD into an embarrasing stop, not that one play should determine anyon's fate (q.v. Brady's underthrow TD that became an INT)

    Maroney played against players that might get a chance to play in a real NFL game if the 4 people in front of them get hurt.

    Agreed, but I don't totally blame BJGE for the stop on the 2ft line. The backside blocking wasn't good enough on that play. However a more talented, powerful runner like Corey Dillon, Emmit or LT in his prime may have gotten though....
