4.7 yards per carry. By the way, Sammy Morris averaged 4.5 . Just some players that Maroney leads in the most important category, some by at least a full yard per carry: Joseph Addai Willis McGahee LaDainian Tomlinson Clinton Portis Frank Gore Willie Parker Marshawn Lynch Thomas Jones Edgerrin James Reggie Bush Ahman Green Rudi Johnson Shaun Alexander Jamal Lewis Larry Johnson Travis Henry Okay, so he doesn't score a lot of TDs. Neither did Barry Sanders. Willie Parker has 2 TDs yet is an MVP candidate, and Bettis used to be their red zone back. He also has ZERO fumbles thus far. He doesn't catch a lot of passes because that isn't his role. So what is everyone's problem with Maroney? The guy has been banged up, which is normal for a guy in his first year or two. The Patriots need a healthy Sammy Morris or a bigger back for goal line situations, or they can continue to set NFL records by throwing for TDs. In my opinion he is far from a bust, and a lot of people have unreasonable expectations.
