Default Maroney vs. Lynch

A look back to last year.
On September 14th, the Broncos traded a 4th rounder to the Patriots for Laurence Maroney and a 6th round pick.

On October 5th, the Buffalo Bills traded Marshawn Lynch to the Seattle Seahawks for a 4th rounder and a conditional pick in 2012(a 5th or 6th round pick).

Basically, I want to know why we didn't look at getting Lynch and instead went with the horrible Maroney.

You are asking people to make sense of what McDaniels did here. This is impossible. The guy was far too stupid for normal people to understand.

Because Mcdummy only like patriot players

Lynch also had some off the field issues, and was suspended for multiple games at some point.

McD is on a mission to F up as many NFL teams he can. Getting a guy like Lynch would have slowed that down.

Clearly a terrible move but perhaps Lynch wasn't available when McD acquired Maroney.

Lynch's character/off field issues is what got him traded. Teams don't jump at giving up picks for those guys. hindsight is 20-20.

Oh, and Maroney was a Pat.

Maroney was horrible, that guy was the definition of awful, his typical statline was 12 carries for 15 yards.

You mean all of our worst starters other than Tebow? Or the fact that he gave away players that were twice as good and used 15 picks in the first three rounds for guys that are considered weak links on the team? All of the best players are Shanahan and Fox guys. This is still true after he gave away many good Shanahan starters. Just pathetic...

McFans will be McFans.

Dude, it was an interesting article thats all I'm saying. Jesus.

I liked the guy, thought he lost it big time at the end there and deserved to be fired. Then I moved on.....maybe some good advice in there somewhere

Classy.

It's called context, McFan.

remember the catch Lelie made against the Raiders?

according to some on the board this would mean:

a) I think we should have kept Lelie and have him on the roster today
b) I still regret the firing of Shanny because I liked Lelie
c) I shouldn't be able to watch this year's wide recievers because I still miss Lelie
d) I'm retarded
e) I have a pro-Hawaii agenda and hate the Broncos today
f) I think Lelie is better than Decker
