    Laurence,

    Thanks for your hard play tonight. It wasn't easy to run on that defensive line, and you didn't have much success getting good yards. When the game was on the line, you stepped up and played with your heart. Thanks for the two great catches and some solid 4th quarter runs. We would not have won without your hard work tonight. This type of play is why we drafted you. Let's keep building on it.

    Re: Than God For Laurence Maroney

    I second that. As I mentioned in another thread, Laurence Maroney was one of TWO OFFENSIVE PLAYERS tonight who actually played consistently well. He ran up against a tough DL, in the face of a HORRENDOUSLY LAME Patriots offensive line performance, and he made big plays when we needed him to.

    In addition, the few times he was called on to do so, LoMar did a very creditable job in pass protection. Thank God he played so well. If he hadn't, we lose. DEFINITELY.

    Maroney averaged more than half a yard per carry BETTER than other running backs who'd played against the Ravens and, if you listened to certain people, that shouldn't matter.

    Maroney threw several blocks that bought Brady enough time to make throws. And he had 2 CLUTCH pass catches for 79 yards.

    Re: Than God For Laurence Maroney

    Hear, hear; and it's about effin time that BB and lil' Skippy start using him Properly, i.e. with a lead FB and gaining a head of steam with the handoff. These lethargic-looking draw plays give LaMa absolutely no momentum whatsoever. And for eff's sake, toss the ball out to him in space! WTF is so dam hard about that?

    We need you down the stretch LOMO I don't want Mcfadden in a Pats jersey sorry National.
    I want to rebuild this aging defense and now we can rebuild the defense thru the draft by trading down.
    Thank god go Patriots lose niners!

    Re: Than God For Laurence Maroney

    He looked really good in open space on the check down tonight. It gave him the time he needed to get into an open field and explode. IMO, this is a maturity process. If he learns to bring this more to the line, he will excel to the back we all want him to be.

    I also think that the Pats need to show more looks of Maroney in the passing game so the D doesn't automatically think run when he is in.

    Re: Than God For Laurence Maroney

    Outside of maybe the Washington game, this was Maroney's best showing this season, IMO. He came up huge. Hope he continues to prove his critics wrong, and earn the trust of the coaching staff.

    He played pretty well, though I thought the "breaking glass" sound effect in the chat room every time he carried the ball was pretty funny.

    Do you need the moderator to edit your thread title from LM to Kevin Faulk. What did Maroney make 2 plays. One wasn't even a run play it was a pass then run, and made one 2 yard run for a first down. That was about it. I wouldn't cal it good work.
