Well I was just watching NESN and the guys were talking about our boy Lawrence Maroney. They said he should be back this week and were comparing him to Marion Barber, saying he was injury prone and a bunch of other stuff, So I figured I would talk about the guy. LM is an average running back I feel the Pats drafted him to be a number one back but have found that he is the type of guy who is better with a couple other guys getting equal carries. Thats why I feel the Pats should look at the end of this season to get a good Number one Back and get rid of everyone else except Kevin Faulk and Sammy Morris because Morris is a good Backup and Faulk is a great third down back who catches everything. I was just wondering how fellow fans felt about Maroney and figured I would ask, What do you guys think?

Sammy Morris is the primary back and Laurence Maroney is his handcuff.

The Pats going with RB by committee doesn't help Maroney get to 1000. Neither does his showing last weekend.

Maroney is a stud when givin the chance I was expecting big things from him this year.  Bradys injury takes away from his production as defenses now dont prepare for the pass as much but the offense has had to grind it out more and that does benefit the run game. Maroneys been banged up a bit early but he should still produce 1000 yrd season.
