    No Maroney means only two active backs. 


    Faulk isn't really a RB, so, it would just be Morris.

    Maroney needs to be returning kicks....and that's about it!

    He's inactive every weekend, why would this be any different?

    Since BB is restructuring the defense, maybe it is time to do something about offense too. I’m sure there is a running back out there happy to carry for Pats…Maroney is inefficient…I don’t know what’s his problem, but at this point he received a lot of chances to prove himself.

    Re: Should Maroney be inactive this weekend?

    I don't think sitting Maroney helps us, because we just don't have much at that position and taking Maroney out (as ineffective as he's been) only leaves us with fewer experienced backs. I would consider activating BJGE, however, and giving him some chances to show what he can do in a real game.  Something needs to be done about the anemic running game, and so starting to get BJGE into the mix makes sense to me. But I'd rather do that with Maroney still active as an option just in case BJGE struggles (or there's an injury).

    Absolutely agree.  Ms Maroney should consider another sport where physical contact isn't necessary.

    The funny thing is he ran 5 times for 21 yds last week. I am confused as why a 4 yd/carry is bad.could some one explain.did maroney took himself off the game after 5 carries ?

    I want law firm their to see what he does.He is slower than morris and maroney so i think he will have issues when people are in the backfield.

    perhaps it is time for a warren dunn.. arent there tons of guys out there for a pinch, low money role.. guys who could carry the rock 10 times or so but arent really good at special teams? something's up.. maoroney wasnt even on special teams this pat week.

    Never been a huge Maroney fan even when they drafted him, I always thought he was a result of the Minnesotta two back system with Marion Barber. But last week I thought he looked as good as he has all year (which is not saying much since he only had the ball 5 times) yet he ran with purpose and gasp even cut a run going outside up the middle for a 3 or 4 yard gain. One thing BB has repeatedly said about Maroney is his blitz pickup is only second to Faulk even though he wiffed on one last week. Christian Fauria said something earlier this week about just giving him the ball and letting him go and with Tenn up this week I would like to see them give Maroney the ball 15 to 20 times and see if he can be an everydown back or if Maroney will be the heir apparent to Kevin Faulk.

    It makes you wonder when two prominent skill position players are this state....this early in the season.  The futures of both Maroney and Galloway are in doubt and, when you analyze it, their productivity is disappointing considering there are only so many roster spots.  

    At some point some hard decisions will need to be made.  However, I think theri ahnds are tied right now as ther are no other alternatives.

    These stats are a week old, and I posted them on a different forum, but Mike Reiss dropped these stats on us...

    The breakdown of negative runs:

    Laurence Maroney -- 7 in 27 attempts

    Fred Taylor -- 2 in 45 attempts

    Sammy Morris -- 2 in 13 attempts

    Kevin Faulk -- 1 in 16 attempts

    THIS is how anyone else is better then Maroney!  More then a quater of his touches are for losses, which is unacceptable!  I'm not for him being made inactice, but I'd rather see him in a backup role...

    they all look pathetic to me.it states through five games.there isnt a running back on the team that has been worthy.im not sticking up for maroney,but he shouldnt be blamed for the rest of the backs sorry production either.look at this average for example.

    How is he getting blamed for other backs sorry production? Besides that I agree with you, and the only person we've yet to see during the regular season is BJGE...  Which explains why everyone is so high on him.  We all see the backs adding very little to our offense, and the magic cure MUST be the one back we haven't played...  Let us dream!

    I have two personal reasons on why this happens....  First, I keep reading interviews of Maroney where he talks a BIG game, and then never backs it up.  Second he's been around for long enough to make an impression that would allow me to overlook week by week issues, but he's yet to impress!  Faulk could fumble the ball three times in a game and I bet you'd get less of a reaction from fans because he's established good rapport over the years!

    this is true,maroney has been a bust,but if the production isnt there by any running back,no matter what round they were drafted,or how long they have been on the team.they should be replaced by a proven player that can get it done.

    An OL that could open up some running lanes would be nice too.

    Patriots are 9th in the NFL in rushing attempts (139) and 25th in YPA (3.6)

    They s*ck at running the ball, but it's a team effort.....

    They're not alone though....

    Atlanta has Michael Turner and averages 3.5 YPA as a team....
    Indy has Addai and Donald Brown and averages 3.3 YPA as a team.....
    Chicago has Matt Forte and averages 3.8 YPA as a team....
    Carolina has DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart and averages 3.8 YPA as a team....

    Hell, even Minnesota only averages 4.1 YPA with AD and Chester Taylor....

    Everyone is calling for BJGE its like saying the most popular player on a bad team is the backup QB, except this team is pretty good and we are talking about the RB's

    This is to everyone who responded to this post.

    I am not a Maroney fan period.
    I would love to see maroney placed in special offense because his inability to stay healthy is effecting the run offense A LOT!. Also his running style is horrible! the guy pretty much stands up and runs opening a lot of locations to get hurt!. I swear did everybody forget about BENJARVUS GREEn-Ellis! the guy had a great year in 08. his spped is great and his running style if just as great as reggie bush or feliz jones.
