    Interesting.  I like Maroney, hate to see him go but it's probably the best for this team right now to cut him loose.  Bill has been very patient.  Shows that they must feel really good about the RB options right now or hopefully making room  for something big.

    The Pats also traded a bunch of goal line fumbles with the deal!

    Maybe he meant second pick in the 5th round. Much more realistic.

    i really hope this means the pats are confident in BJGE. i like what i see when he runs up the gut. he is like a little bowling ball.

    Outstanding. Maybe we can re-sign Murrell or bring in another LB or DL..or the easter bunny. Anything at this point will be an upgrade.

    I'm on record saying I don't like this at all.  Maroney isn't the greatest but he's the most reliable RB we have.  The Pats know what the have (had) in him.  You've got Morris and Taylor who get hurt and will probably again.  They're just getting older and the hits take more of a toll.  I've never have been a BJGE fan.  This really surprised me.

    Not a fan of this move. 

    This leaves us with Fred Taylor (who is good), but bound to get hurt. Then sammy morris who really isnt much good and is very injury prone. Faulk is a 3rd down specialist. 

    mark it down guys, if we don't get another RB, then BJGE will be our feature back come playoff time. I am not saying this is a terrible thing, but I do not see much potential in him, unlike most fans. 

    Maroney wasn't great, but he was depth at a position that gets hammered consistently.

    Now I would trade Mankins for Marian Barber easily.

    i agree that maroney is not the complete failure that everyone makes him out to be, but i completely disagree with your view on BJGE. i have been a lawfirm fan ever since his 100 yard game his rookie year when he had to play out of necessity due to injury. i really think the kid can play

    I don't know, I think I'd want more for Mankins than yet another beat up RB.  We have those.

    Something is brewing....Maroney was cheap and insurance....needed the roster spot...I think the Pats are moving Mankins for a player and a pick...we'll see....

    I don't like this unless it pans out to be something bigger. I think Maroney still had value and the Pats only get a fourth rounder and give up him and a sixth? I'm not a fan at all. I'm really hoping there's another trade coming or they sign someone that plays very well. BB always seems to surprise me I guess...

    I hope Maroney does well unless he plays the Pats.

    I'm not a in a position to evaluate this trade--I'm pretty sure Bill Belichick is in a better position to decide Maroney's trade vs. roster value.  I will say I am surprised this was only for a swap of our 6th round for their 4th round (http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/nfl/news/story?id=5572724&campaign=rss&source=NFLHeadlines). I would have guessed it would have been for a 3rd.  Oh well--maybe that means this is more about making space on the roster for an addition.

    I will also say thank you Laurence for your time here in New England, for being a good football player and citizen, and I wish you the best of luck in Dencer (except when playin us).

    Not sure why any Pats fan would be happy about this.  This just is another high draft pick bust by the pats.  This guy was suppose to be the running back of the future.

    Now what the trade amounts to is we just traded a first round pick for a 4th round pick.  Not a happy day at all.

    Re: **Maroney Traded to Denver**

    reasonable trade...4th round pick is nice...they weren't going to resign Maroney after this season anyway, so it's good business to get something for him now, especially since he obviously had slipped significantly on the club's RB depth chart...think we'll be fine w/ the backs we have...

    Barber does get beat up for sure, but I think he would take less of a beating here in this rotation.  I mean of course I'm hoping for Steven Jackson, but I don't think that is going to happen. 

    I wonder if and who they have in mind

    To think that Joseph Addai was still on the board when we drafted Maroney.

    I'm still of the view that we should go after Haynesworth. He'd be a terrific defensive end in the 3-4 system. The style of play, the mentality, he had in the 4-3 does not translate to the 3-4 NT. Shanahan is making a huge mistake using him in that capacity. At the 3-4 end position, though, that attacking mentality is perfect.

    Whatever you think of Maroney, essentially giving him away when you've got two virtually guaranteed injuries, an aging third-down specialist and the Law Firm in your backfield is a bad, bad move.
