    The only different between me and Peter King (or most sports writers) is that I actually know that I'm not a football expert.  I can sit back and say "they should do this or that" but I don't actually know the differece between cover 5 and cover 8 let alone which matchups make wake one more effective than the other.

    Agree with all that but in this instance, it wasnt like King said they needed to draft THIS guy with THIS pick.  He was just surprised that the pats had TWELVE picks and could not find ONE running back to take in the WHOLE draft to bring in and push Mauraony.  Is that such a horrible statement.  I was pretty surprised they didnt take a back with any of the picks as well.  Weren't the majority of people surprised they didnt take a back at all?

    And my surprise goes beyond Mauraony as all there backs are old.  Isnt it possible that after this upcoming year NONE of the current backs are on this team.  So not only do they need to replace 1 back but I would think several next year.

    In Response to Re: Peter King calls BB out for not drafting a RB : Agree with the idea but isnt Barber just as injury prone as everyone else we have?  He lost his starting job in Dallas because he couldnt stay on the field.

    But, Barber is only 26 and with Morris and Taylor we have older injury prone backs. Considering Barber and Maroney were team mates in college, they may develop into something. The thing being, Barber wouldn't be called on to run it 20 times a game. Having Barber in with Faulk on 3rd down situations? What a lovely gift to give opposing defenses huh? Ask Jerry Jones if he'd take a 5th rounder or maybe even a swap for BJGE? Dunno if it'd happen but, I for one LOVE watching Barber run. One of my favorites and surely has plenty left in the tank, especially as a non-featured back.

    Again, agree with the idea.  But we have so many guys right that we start every sentence with, If they stay healthy......   I am a barber fan too, so if we could get him at a reasonable price, it would be worth it.  As you said he is still young.

    RB was pushed under the rug until 2011

    we will live will another year of work around at that position.

    Morris - like this guys hard running, but he is injured too often
    Freddie Taylor - way beyond his best years.  get what we can
    Faulk - 3rd down specialist
    BJGE - tough runner - may be a go to person for rushing yardage - situational back.

    In all, we truly do not have that dependable back.

    Barber lost his job because he wasn't running like he did the prior year.  Yes, he's injury prone but that wasn't the reason why he lost his job.  He's just not the runner he use to be.  The contact has taken it's toll on the guy and that was a worry down here when he first came on the scene.  Playing 2nd fiddle to Jones won't be too bad as Jones has a hard time staying healthy himself.

    Obviously, the RB class of '10 didn't impress BB and that BB still has confidence in a Morris/Taylor combo with Maroney for depth.

    In spite of Maroney's failure, it wouldn't surprise me if BB takes a run at Mark Ingram from Alabama in 2011 with the Raiders' pick. If he can remain healthy, Ingram will be one of the best RBs in the draft.

    maroney is still really young... he ran well towards the end of the year last year, but he had that fumbling problem.  i dont think BB lets maroney enter the 2010 season without working on that and i think it'll be alright, and if not its his contract year and he doesnt get an extension. win win for the pats. either he has a strong showing and we retain him or he doesnt and he's gone.
