Should I take the chance on Maroney? If I knew that either Dom Davis or Mike Bell were good to go for the entire season, I'd take the chance. Hard to tell if Maroney will get the bulk of the work w/Dillon in NE. Not worried about losing Lee Evans. I have enough depth to keep me out of trouble and think that Walker would be an upgrade... though not a big one.
What up FREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Long time no talk.
DON'T DO THAT DEAL. I don't like it.
Lamont, while not a stud, is pretty much the ONLY option that Oakland has at RB. Jordan will get 85-90% of their carries by season's end (unless an injury comes). He's no LT or LJ but he's still a top 15 RB IMO. Maroney definately has the upside but from everything I've heard (on sirius NFL radio) is that Dillon will be the #1 RB when the season kick's off. As long as Dillon is healthy the best you can hope for out of Maroney is 40% of the carries. Do you really want to have to hope for an injury for your RB to get the bulk of the carries?
I think Evans is primed for another 2004 campaign if not better. Look I got burned on Evans week in and week out last season. You know that cause you traded him to me. I don't blame Evans though. It was the QB situation. If you look at the ladder part of last season, Losman and Evans started to really gel.Evans went to phuk off the last 2 weeks of the season.
Walker will need time coming back from the ACL. He'll also need time to get in rythm with the offense and he'll need time to get his timing with Jake. That translates into alot of TIME. I think Javon will have a decent year and will eventually be a tremendous asset for the Broncos. That said, I don't think he'll have a great FF season.
