I always get a kick out of Rotoworld
Maroney will take his "almost" annual 3 or 4 games off with injury
There is death,taxes and a Maroney injury
When do we get the injury list and the status of the players on it?
That they were all in sweats seems to mean they're not far off. SMY tweeted a few days ago that she's hearing Edelman will be back after two weeks.
Twitter / shalise manza young: Hearing the Julian Edelman ...
Actually, Morris has missed the same number of games as Maroney since he's been here.
I wonder what Cunningham's "ankle" injury is. He hasn't put on pads in a month.
Turned out he doesn't have one His foot is like jelly
True, but Morris is old.
The fact of the matter is that the Pats haven't had a lead back or primary back play a full 16 game schedule since Antowain Smith in 2002. To single out Maroney for missing games is kinda silly since Dillon, Morris, Taylor, Antowain Smith didn't play a full season in any year since 2002 Well Smith did, but it was when he played with NO). Dillon came the closest in 2004 when he played 15 games. Personally, I think Belichick might strategically hold RBs at times during the season to try to keep them fresh.
Bad news for Edelman, but we can cover for him. Brace and Cunningham, in particular, practicing is great news.
Maroney is not even remotely injury prone when compared with Mssrs. Taylor and Morris.
Funny how you Maroney haters MISS the fact that Fred Taylor was GONE for most of last year and that Morris's injuries are significantly MORE than Maroney's. Faulk has been durable the past few years, but he had many injuriies each year in the early 00s. Running backs get beat up..have injuries..You see what you wish to see and miss reality.
Might this be also the reason Green-Ellis is on the team?? For added depth??
Maroney does suck. Too many people on here gulp his koolaid. Every year he comes out and promises to stop being a puss and hit the hole, never happens. He's never been a feature back and will never be one.
Did you even watch Maroney play last year?
Like Maroney this preseason... have to think the effect of less wear and tear on his body played a part.
Feature backs are few and far between now...Dillon was the closest the team has had...I really do not care if Maroney is a feature back or not..NEVER thought he was going to be...and think he's fine with an arsenal of backs..RB by committee..that is a bit better in many ways. With a feature back, all falls on him..he goes down..that's it. With many, they can have their bumps and bruises and rest a game or two here and there. THAT is why Green-Ellis is an important part of this group..even though so few understand that. Maroney is not the inside rusher that Taylor or Morris is, but if he gets to the outside he can be dangerous. Just part of a good group of RBs..and that is OK in my book.
