[QUOTE]In Response to Once again... Time to say GOODBYE to Maroney : I think Billy B is just waiting and hoping that one of these games, it just clicks for Maroney and he starts "getting it." He went down today on a soft hit. Good for us, as it allowed Fred Taylor to take over duties. FT shows some great cuts, acceleration, speed, and good decision making quickly. He is definitely our number one RB at the moment. I would like to see what BJGE could do, get him some carries on 1st and 10, and let's see if we can get some dynamite out of him.

Agree with Fred Taylor rpn
that he is, and should be considered the #1 back... Problem is that for Taylor, He ain't no spring-chicken anymore, and so can't be, nor should
as you would your feature back... Today he had 21 carries, and come December, when it matters most, we need him fresh... Everybody talks about getting running backs into some kind of rhythm, but Taylor's a Vet who has shown he knows how to come in and contribute on a moment's notice, so this should be much less a factor than keeping him fresh when he's needed most come playoff time... Ideally, I'd like to see him get around 15 and no-more-EVER than 20 carries in a regular season game split evenly with Benjarvis-Ellis (another hard, and instinctual runner for his size). Later, when he gets healthy, Sammy Morris can pick up the slack and do some splitting in for Taylor when he slows somewhat through the year so he's fresh come Winter.
I'm so past disgusted with Maroney's injuries, dancing, and overall lack of production as a feature back
, THAT I just pray BB gives BJGE the head nod from this point forward... I'm more disgusted with Maroney than even Galloway (because I'll give ANYONE and EVERYONE a few games, or a year or 2, BUT when we're talking 3, even 4 years...c'mon now)- Whom I BOTH (Galloway/Maroney) would consider putting on the practice squad (so noone takes Terrence Nunn). Flip a coin to see who goes, I don't care, Since whichever one we Do NOT keep on the team, I'm sure will suddenly have an illustrious and suddenly reinvigorated career after being picked up by an AFC East Rival...
