[QUOTE]In Response to Re: BB Calls Out His O-Line : Show me the games where Maroney ran for "20 yard scampers" in garbage time. Maroney was half or more of our running game in 06 and 07. For those of you who are keeping track those years were AFC championship and Superbowl appearances. Only an idiot would suggest that Maroney has not made solid contributions to our football team.

Lets look at his "solid" contributions this year. The Maroney we all know and love mixes his texas two-step with a long carry and it makes his production look better on paper than what it really is. Below is a game by game break down for 2009. I subtracted his longest carry each game (in parenthese) to see what his real average was. Obviously 1 carry is deducted to account for his longest run. Lets see how he performs the majority of his carries. TrueChamp is correct, Maroney is an outstanding contributer.
Game 1: 9 for 21 = 2.33 (Long of 11)
Game 2: 5 for 11 = 2.2 (12)
Game 3: 3 for 12 = 4.00 (5)
Game 4: 6 for 1 = .16 (5)
Game 5: 4 for 11 = 2.75 (10)
Game 6: 15 for 78 = 5.2 (45)
Game 7: 12 for 30 = 2.72 (13)
Wow, this production is "solid". That is an exceptional 2.76 YPC for the season. With the exception of the Titans game, who put up one he ll of a defense I might add, Maroney the Amazing has managed 1 other 4.0 YPC game. ALL of the rest were well under 3, even the TB game. I suppose if we go for it every fourth down, he'll get us a first down every four plays.
Explain this? Cause apparently I'm an idiot to think that Maroney the Amazing has many outstanding games. If you'd like, I'll break down his prior seasons to see how Amazing his contribution really is.
