    Thankfully we have both, but if you had to choose who's style do you prefer? It's a bit of a Thunder vs. Lightning question.

    Poll upcoming...

    Without a doubt its Morris. I love his power. He doesn't dance around and man he runs hard. We don't often see him stuffed at the line. He usually always gets 4 or 5 yards out of nothing. He is powerful, I love it.

    Yeah, he reminds me of a 2004 Corey Dillon... except that Morris is a bit faster.

    I would of voted if you had a third option, they compliment each other well.

    Morris.....a big reason is HE PLAYS....I always think a RB's running style is better without the bench strapped to his arse....

    Morris is looking every bit as big a pickup as Moss, if not bigger.

    Not only is Morris's running style better. He's the way better back. You can tackle Maroney by sticking out your pinky.

    Yeah...he got a 40 some yard run against the Bengals. I have seen Maroney break some 20 yarders not much more. Corey Dillon broke longer runs than Maroney last year.

    Maroney: 7 runs over 20 yards
    Dillon: 3 runs over 20

    24 less carries

    if your saying Maroney is not a big play threat..your nuts.

    Morris is stronger..hes a complete different back. he cant run away from people like Maroney..hes not as explosive. not a back thing..its just different styles

    the OL has a lot to do with how you get yardage. last year..Maroney had 8 men in box because no1 respected our WRs. this year..its different. at times..holes werent there but Maroney did real well the games he played this year

    im not a Morris hater. im a huge fan but im trying to prove to you that your wrong about Laurence

    btw Morris in 8 seasons only has 7 runs over 20 yards..just as many as Laurence in 1

    Maroney would have EASILY scored if he were in on that play against the Bengals. That play was all about blocking. And Maroney would have taken that to the house.
