    Sammy's a beast. He was missed last year, put to much running/blocking load on KF, can't wait to see him line up again this season.

    I LOVED watching him play in that first game last year!!!

    I think our RB`s have developed alot last year. Maroney`s finished strong and kyle moved from the pratice squad and actually carried the ball well. People forget morris was on his first year too.

    so we got 2 second year guys in the system morris and kyle and a vastly improved maroney. so i am confident they will hold the fort down.

    I agree, I think that Corey did a lot to help Maroney along in 2006 and although it may have taken a little time for LM to come along last year, I think that he made HUGE strides by the season end.

    Can't wait to see what they will do this year. I love to see Morris hit the gap and then JUMP up and run out after he's been tackled.

    I feel VERY good about our running game.

    Great news! I wonder if Moss/Brady would have still gotten the records if he had stayed healthy. He was a steamroller and once he went down, they seem to pass more. Anyhow, glad to see him healthy again.

    IMO - Yes, and in fact they might have tacked on a few more TD's because of the 3rd Down conversions that Sammy would have contributed. Not saying that there were a lot of those, but I know Sammy would have been a factor in those downs.

    Yeah . . . Imagine teams having to defend 3rd-and-2 with Moss, Morris, and Welker on the field. :D

    Finally some details on the injury. sternum clavicle separation -- what a freaky injury. Hope he's a monster on the field again.

    Patriots RB recovering from injury Patriots RB Sammy Morris is recovering from a sternum-clavicle separation suffered vs. Dallas last October. "I'm really pleased with my progress," said Morris, who began lifting weights 6 weeks ago per the Boston Globe. "The doctors say everything looks good and that it was a freak injury, but that guys bounce back from it." Morris was the team's best running back when he got hurt, having posted back-to-back 100-yard games. He's getting up in age (turned 31 Sunday) but has low mileage (459 career carries). Laurence Maroney cannot rest on his laurels. If Morris doesn't challenge him then possibly some rookie RB will.
