Can Maroney win it if the ball is in his hands at this time?

    Maroney gets the handoff.....

    How comfortable are you that we score that Maroney comes through to win the Championship?

    I'm not, but only because I would always want the ball in Brady's hands.

    If we ran in that situation, the problem would be with McDaniels, not Maroney.

    i say its in, i dont know if i had rather throw it either...our guys HAVE been dropping it...but just to be safe? i would put faulk in there instead, LOL
    no brady, no welker, no moss, no donte, no watson....just rit up the middle, hope the O-line helps...


    did i mention make ia a 4 wide set? with faulk behind brady? a position they have never before seen him take?

    One word: Vrabel.

    And for the record, I wouldn't be confident with Jim Brown or Walter Payton with the ball in his hands in that situation. I'd be nervous as hell.

    Another Maroney related thread what the hell is wrong with you guys. I know that being a fan of a 13 and zero team sucks but please.

    First of all if someone had to explain it to me it would have to be you since it was an ignorant question to be brought up in the first place.

    Hell i can make 8000 situational threads too. Does it mean i should?

    NO!

    To me its just another thread to bash Maroney in and its really starting to piss me off to come into this forum and see hate threads.

    Then go elsewhere,Who gives a s--t what you think?

    Don't like it? - Tough :bricks:

    And besides its not a Maroney bashing thread if you had any brains to figure it out,Its about how confident you would be in Maroney's chance to make or break the season if it was in his hands - I never used negativity in the original thread but you are not smart enough to figure it out.

    Go read other posts today and leave please if you don't like it

    It depends on how much he's practiced the direct snap play. ;)

    Just kidding. Last time around every Patriots fan knew it was coming 5 minutes in advance, and it still fooled Carolina. This time around, we should assume opponents have finally prepared for it.

    Why because it shows 70 percent of the people who are fans of this team have no confidence in SloMo? The poster who started this thread has every right to. Just because you cant take the critasism and are having a meltdown does not mean the thread is trash.

    Solid question that is VERY valid. SloMo is the weakest link on the O. Most people would have no confidence in Slaroney if it was ALL on the line.

    yea lets see..the steelers had parker and davenport...and they passed and tried a trick play. this has nothing to do with maroney. brady passes for the td. lucky you arent the coach calling for a run with 4th and 3

    And 99.9 percent of fans know that we wouldn't be running it in that situation regardless of who the running back is. It it were 4th and 1, maybe.

    I would not be very confident 4th and 3 down 4 in the final seconds, period. There is no "sure" thing there. I wouldn't want anyone except Brady with the ball, but that doesn't mean I'm 100% confident that he'll get it done, I mean we obviously didn't get it done on 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

    Most people would be NERVOUS and not 100% confident no matter who the hell was on the team. That means this thread is just trying to trick people into "realizing" that Maroney is bad.
