Yea, Buck really hurt us Sunday.

This is an interesting trade. Moroney has been an underachiever, but he is young... and clearly knows the offense.

Not a bad thing to have some young depth, and I'm guessing we didn't give up much.


Now how about acquiring a ****ing linemen?

Report from ground zero:

He was a healthy scratch this past week...in Bill's doghouse essentially since day one. Occasionally shows flashes of what made him a #1 pick, but isn't very consistent and doesn't always appear to work hard.

I like this if it's for a conditional 5th or 6th....he was basically going to be cut sooner or later anyway.

Would prefer to have my young depth aquired before TC not in the middle of a season.

This reeks of desperation.

Missed The game agaisnt Cinn with a thigh injury...
so is a thigh injury a hammy?

We better not have given up much for this! Physical better be thorough, to include MRI of the legs, and back (sciatic nerve can show up as leg pain).

He may know the system (somewhat) but a bench RB won't help us any.

At the same time Buckhalter looked bad, and we need help.

Too early to tell if we're fine, but I agree that we need to give them some time together before getting upset. Our three established linemen have been hit by injuries and we're starting a rookie at center, of course there are going to be issues at this point.

Interesting to see what this pick is for Maroney, we don't have a 5th or 6th round pick next year to offer so I'm not sure what it could be. Conditional, maybe?

I like the acquisition in one regard. Always thought he was a good natural runner, maybe a change of scenery will be good for him.

On the other hand, he's coming here to play in the same offense that he's spent the last few years sucking in for the Patriots.

Hardly the middle of a season.

Trade deadline is not the middle of the season either, the season is on you should be going to war with the guys you have not picking through scraps when you should be gameplanning for Seahags.

You know what really pisses me off is that both Bumhalter and Shortgain go down in TC/PS and yet they trot out guys like Ball and Hall all PS. They should have gone out and got some healthy depth then not after they step on their dick in week 1. Just think how much better the new Patsy castoff would be with a chance to prove himself during PS.

What if Maroney is as ineffective here as he was in NE

Would have been nice to have a guy like Thomas Jones in Bumhalters role.

This trade has absolutely nothing to do with Moreno. It may have something to do with Buckhalter looking loke crap, and with how little depth we have at the RB position.

Direct result of how awful Buckhalter looked on Monday. I've been predicting since Day 1 of the McDaniels regime that passing is now first and formost, and that running would be a constant struggle for this team.

If a RB is going to get yards in this system, it will be on their sheer talent alone, not the system.

I agree Bow...but IF Maroney is healthy and can stay that way for a season...i would rather have him backing up Moreno than Buck.

Wow I know he fumbled on the weekend, but damn, I didn't realize Buckhalter fell out of favour so fast here.

Yeah, he fumbled at a crucial moment, but... he just didn't look good out there, either. Last year, when he was healthy, he really delivered some punishment. Seemed like on Sunday he was tentative and afraid of contact.

Yea, you get the feeling they watched the tape and saw him struggling, plus the fumble. Plus... the guy just can't be depended on. Too bad, I like him when he's healthy.

Moroney has had flashes. Hopefully he can pull a Cedric Benson and turn his career around.

I never saw why they even signed Buck. Philly signing mike bell made more sense. This team has more holes that my old shorts. Giving up anything for a guy with an injury history and the missed opportunities worries me. If denver has a future with McDaniels, it's two years away. But what's the choice? They need a body now. Who knows? Maybe it'll work.

The thing that scares me about Maroney is that he always seems to follow his blocks a little too closely, like right into their backs. ;D

This is a great move. Maroney is a powerful back and could really benefit from a change of scenery.

We now have 3 good options at tailback. I don't see what the issue is.

I think Maroney is the type of player they thought they were getting with JJ Arrington last year. A quality back up that can be lethal on 3rd downs.

What has Maroney ever done to make anyone think he is a homerun hitter?

He's not anywhere near the neighborhood of Chris Johnson or Jamaal Charles, but he's the type of back who can spring off a long one if you give him a crease.

In addition to adding a backup running back, I'm guessing part of this is to free Eddie Royal from special teams duty. Maroney is a pretty good kickoff returner.

09-14-2010, 01:55 PM
I do like how Maroney usually makes upfield cuts instead of dancing too wide. He does have some good speed and power when he brings his "A game."

I watched him in college when he came to Tulsa and torched TU for over 200 yards with ESPN in attendance.

Considering there's not going to be a 2011 draft, we just got ourselves a free young, talented RB.

Considering the draft is independent of a lockout and it's happening even if the players are locked out, no they didn't.

Hopefully he can turn that around here

Typical freakout session on the Mane.

This is a great move. Maroney is a powerful back and could really benefit from a change of scenery.

We now have 3 good options at tailback. I don't see what the issue is.

If you mean Brown as the third I too am interested in seeing what he can do when healthy

Yeah baby, I'm gonna tell you about some rock and roll girls I know. Yeah, make me feel good!


I got a girl named Boney Maroney
She's as skinny as a stick of macaroni
You always see her dancing with her blue jeans on
Yeah she ain't no fat, just skin and bones.


And I love her
And she loves me
Oh how happy now we can be
Makin' love underneath the apple tree
Whew, Yeah!


Oh, her mama and her papa too
Just say exactly what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna get married on a night in June
And we'll rock and roll by the light of the moon.

She's a real upsetter, She's a real live wire

Now I love her
And she loves me
Oh how happy now we can be

I do like how Maroney usually makes upfield cuts instead of dancing too wide. He does have some good speed and power when he brings his "A game."

I watched him in college when he came to Tulsa and torched TU for over 200 yards with ESPN in attendance.

Maroney is an indecisive runner. Watch him, he will make cuts, but too often he makes them in the wrong place or takes too long to decide when to make them. Maybe we can fix that, but it's been a problem his entire career.

Ummm Maroney has 5 fumbles in his 4 year career... hardly a fumbling problem.

Pay attention to when those fumbles are occurring
Keep in mind that this guy has been in the doghouse or injured practically his whole career, so fumbles are hard to come by if you aren't getting the PT

I pulled this off the Patriots SBNation blog

"However, there was his fumbling problem. Over the nine game stretch, Maroney fumbled three times, including one costly goal line fumble against the Colts. In week sixteen against the Jaguars, Maroney suffered his fourth fumble of the season, including his second at the goal line. Following the fumble, Maroney didn't touch the ball the rest of the regular season, and was a healthy scratch against Houston in the regular season finale. In the team's playoff loss to the Ravens, Maroney only carried the ball once, despite getting the start."

I had a feeling the Broncos were going to go for a back in the draft this next year, so getting Maroney for a fourth and receiving a sixth isn't a terrible deal. I think he'll be a good second back for us.

Picks we have are 1, 2, 2, 3, 6, 7.

Exactly, that's my big concern here. At least Buck could squirt through small holes and sometimes make something out of nothing. Maroney really needs a good line in front of him opening holes. Our line right now is not going to do that. We need a slasher, Maroney does not fit that bill. We'll see.

We feel Lawrence gives us a great option at tailback to spell Moreno. I know what the guy is capable of, we saw an opportunity and took it. I was likely gonna blow that 4th on a blocking tight end anyway, lol.

Not thrilled with that. It makes sense on paper, but I wonder what the issue is with the guy. Maybe they just think Taylor is better and since Maroney can't play ST he's in no man's land? Maybe a change of scenery is needed, but the Pats don't usually trade guys away that do well on other teams. We'll see. He's better than what was there he's worth a fourth. However I hope we trade for more picks this year.

I'm happy with our day one arsenal, but day two leaves a lot to be desired with only the 3, 6 and 7. I wouldn't doubt that we'll attempt to acquire more picks. Hell, it seems like we don't have a problem traded future selections to get picks in the current draft year so we will see.

Basically, I think it comes down to this:

We get a player now who has had decent success in the past, and can contribute. He has a familiarity with McDaniels and the offensive system. He can do more for us now than an Andre Brown or whoever else we have. He will likely contribute more down the road than a rookie running back would have this coming year (poor RB class anyways) unless it was a stud who was supposed to be selected high.

In my eyes, this will allow us to address our front seven (hopefully) in the coming draft, and not have to worry about selecting another running back.

the point is, people here eye in on the negatives even tho the positives outweigh them. The only way to overcome it in Denver is to make 1 big play and then you're certified.

If you're a solid player, that's not allowed.

That's what I see. But it seems obvious that McDaniels wants this guy. So, I can spin this two ways.

1. Maroney is a steal for a swap of 4th and 6th rounders, and he's really gonna help this team two years from now so giving up draft value is not an issue. 2. McDaniels really sees nothing wrong in giving up draft value for a guy who might, might, in the best case scenario, make a significant difference in two or three games this year, and was too damn stupid to sign a FA, like Mike Bell, who could do about the same without giving up draft value, and has zero ability to manage a draft or personnel dept.

Lets not forget Josh has little hoody syndrome in the draft and loves to pick up extra picks (or trade them away). Either way Josh has a tendency to stockpile picks come April even if it means trading star players.

Why are you ignoring the 6th? And why did he make the 53 to get cut after week one? So he could be paid then cut?

Because rarely do you get anything out of 6th or 7th rounders but camp bodies and Practice Squaders. A 4th rounder is area of the draft were you get guys that have raw talent to play in the NFL but need a little development time (a season or two) to become a player in NFL. Look at Sammie Lee Hill for Detroit as an example - small school player that became a good starter after season of learning the game.

And Maroney was in the doghouse in NE and just made the cut because they couldn't find a better player on the waiver wire or a trade at the time. The Boston paper and WEEI were surprised he made it. With this trade they found someone and have no problem moving him. Since he is in last year of his deal, and there is no cap, they most likely have cut him at any time once they found a replacement, which I am sure they were looking for.

Why's that? Because you tards saw one play of a good receiving TE beating Haggan? YA HE SUCKS OFF WITH HIS HEAD

You Tards?

It was more than one play where Hagan was out of position or got exposed in coverage. Look man I want to see this team win. I respect Josh McDaniels and this freaking team. If you can't see that we have a glaring hole in our linebacking core then your blind. Just wait until we play the Titans and Chris Johnson puts up 200 plus on our slow linebacking core. The whole idea behind beefing up your defensive line is so you can afford to have smaller quicker linebackers not freaking 270 pound mammoths. I love the physical nature of this defense, but we really need another backer in the Mold of DJ starting in the middle.

He's an emergency band-aid. Problem is we've got a sliced jugular. I sure hope he can make his own holes as well.

I really hope not. I liked this guy in college. If it's a bandaide then McDaniels really screwed the pooch by not getting a FA who could actually play, e.g. Mike Bell, without giving up draft depth, which this team needs because it's got talent problems. Band aids aren't gonna help beyond maybe hiding how bad it is.

@MaxBroncos Believe Mike Shanahan said outright that if Broncos didn't draft Cutler, they would have drafted Maroney in '06.

right, because Maroney is so old at 25.

The word veteran doesn't mean old, it means a player that made it through a season or two. But now that you mention it, at best Maroney has 4/5 years left in his body, since running backs usually stop being productive when they hit 30.

We need to face the fact that McDaniels and Xanders don't respect the draft and are willing to trade the opportunity to acquire young potential talent for veterans.

I think 2008 was on the job training. It was a horrible draft anyway you slice it, unless you just go total homer. 2009 ... I dunno. Could be some good stuff in those later rounds, and I'm not gonna call Tebow a bust before he gets some coaching and a chance.

but Maroney was a good looking prospect coming out. Billicheat is not exactly a guy with a history of having a continuity of running backs. If Maroney is healthy and has a decent attitude he could help for a few years. If not ... we'll see.

Bet you Shanny is jealous

Remember he said that if Broncos didn't draft Cutler, they would have drafted Maroney in '06.

http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/27785/denver-adds-laurence-maroney-to-rb-mix

Laurence Maroney is a Denver Bronco.

It’s a move four years in the making.

In the 2006 draft, Denver coach Mike Shanahan said he nearly drafted Maroney out of Minnesota, but the Broncos pulled off a trade and drafted quarterback Jay Cutler. Shanahan thought Maroney was a perfect fit for Denver’s zone blocking, downhill running style.

Maroney clearly fits new Denver coach Josh McDaniels’ style. McDaniels was Maroney’s offensive coordinator in New England prior to coming to Denver last year. When it was rumored this summer that Maroney would be put on the trade market, Denver was a logical potential destination because of his history with McDaniels and Denver’s issues at the position.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Maroney was traded for Denver's fourth-round pick in 2011. Denver also gets New England's 2011 sixth-round pick, according to Schefter.

Maroney fell out of favor in New England this season. He missed the Patriots’ season opener with a thigh injury.

The Broncos have been plagued by injuries since the beginning of training camp. Last weekend, Knowshon Moreno, in his first action since being hurt in the first day of training camp, had 60 yards rushing. His backup, Correll Buckhalter, had 15 yards.

Expect Maroney to be used in short-yardage situations. Maroney is 5-11, 220 pounds. He had 757 yards rushing and nine rushing touchdowns last season. His best NFL season came in 2007 when he had 835

They don't stop being productive, they're just not as good. Productive means they can still make the team.

Veteran can be thrown around, but the point is, a 4th round pick is a bigger gamble than a RB you know can play in the NFL.

Yikes, tough crowd.

We feel Lawrence gives us a great option at tailback to spell Moreno. I know what the guy is capable of, we saw an opportunity and took it. I was likely gonna blow that 4th on a blocking tight end anyway, lol.

I'm seriously very hungover after drinking so much in that heat for the past 2 days with Del Rio, that dude's intense. I never understood wearing a suit in florida when you've never won anything. I'm gonna hit the steam room. Elevation can kind of give you a superman complex.
I'll be back later.

Hey coach might want to know his name is spelled Laurence not Lawrence...I mean for the depth charts and all.

Shanahan uniformly impressed by Maroney
Jeff Legwold, Rocky Mountain News

Published September 23, 2006 at midnight

ENGLEWOOD - If blue-ribbon quarterback prospect Jay Cutler were not in a Denver Broncos uniform right now, running back Laurence Maroney would be.

The Broncos will get their latest look at Maroney, who was the New England Patriots' first- round draft selection in April, on Sunday night in Foxborough, Mass. But they certainly have seen plenty of the 220-pound back before.

"Oh, yeah, when I look at Maroney, and we looked at him a lot, we thought he had everything," Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said. "He's got speed, elusiveness, power, that ability to make people miss. You didn't see a lot in pass protection (in college), but you saw plenty of toughness.

"When you look at running backs, there are very few that can separate themselves from the rest of the pack. We thought he had a chance to be one of those."

And had the Broncos not swung the draft-day deal with the St. Louis Rams to move up from the No. 15 pick to No. 11 to select Cutler, Maroney would have been trying to get his carries in the Broncos backfield.

The Patriots selected Maroney at No. 21, and the rookie already has pushed his way into the lineup. Maroney and three-time Pro Bowl selection Corey Dillon, a 10th-year veteran, are platooning in the Patriots backfield.

Dillon, who battled nagging injuries last season that limited him to 12 games and 10 starts, has carried the ball 36 times for 153 yards this season; Maroney has 151 yards on 33 carries.

The Patriots certainly were looking for an upgrade in the offseason after finishing 24th in the league in rushing.

"Our running game has been more productive this year," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "We've had good production out of our line, our backs and our receivers blocking. . . . We've definitely improved it."

The Patriots have leaned on the running game so much that they have called rushing plays on almost 60 percent of their offensive snaps in the first two games.

Maroney had three 1,000-yard rushing seasons at Minnesota - he entered the draft as a junior - setting a school record with 1,464 yards in '05 despite leaving three games early.

I had a feeling the Broncos were going to go for a back in the draft this next year, so getting Maroney for a fourth and receiving a sixth isn't a terrible deal. I think he'll be a good second back for us.

Draft for 2011:

Picks we have are 1, 2, 2, 3, 6, 7.

We wanted Gerhart this year and the Vikes surprised us by trading up to get him.

Trade deadline is not the middle of the season either, the season is on you should be going to war with the guys you have not picking through scraps when you should be gameplanning for Seahags.

You know what really pisses me off is that both Bumhalter and Shortgain go down in TC/PS and yet they trot out guys like Ball and Hall all PS. They should have gone out and got some healthy depth then not after they step on their dick in week 1. Just think how much better the new Patsy castoff would be with a chance to prove himself during PS.

What if Maroney is as ineffective here as he was in NE

Would have been nice to have a guy like Thomas Jones in Bumhalters role.

More Dove Valley Drama

Stupid Josh why didnt he KNOW that Buck would not spring back well from his ill defined neck and back injury and that Knowshon wouldnt be ready to rumble in game one behind a patch work mostly rookie Oline?! Why didnt he trade for Arian Foster or better yet work a deal for CJ in March!?! ..... If these dumb coaches we have were only as prescient as us Omaners we'd be a lock for the Lombardi this year!
