The knock on all small RB's is that they will struggle in pass protection...Drew has been great in pass protection all year...the 1st game of the year he proved that to me when he knocked a rushing Roy Williams on to his side on a weak side blitz...
Maroney isnt getting enough credit. our playcalling, as you've probably heard, BLOWS. the plays are all Maroney inside and we have 8 men in box usually. however..hes 3rd in terms RBs in yards after contact..so considering contact usually happens at line of scrimmage because our OL isnt very good..that tells you a lot
2. How many yards can a running back pick up after contact? The top-five backs in average yards after contact are all significantly better than the 2-yard after-contact average in the NFL. The top-10 NFL backs with a minimum of 150 carries that make something happen after the first tackler strikes are Gore, Travis Henry, Laurence Maroney, Taylor, Cadillac Williams, LaDainian Tomlinson, Westbrook, Chester Taylor, Kevin Jones and Tiki Barber in that order.
i like MJD though and i admit hes looking better than Maroney right now..better than many RBs infact but Maroney deserves credit with what hes doing..no great threat at WR..inconsistent OL and horrible playcalling..we pass on Colts who were top 10 in pass defense against their deadlast run D. why not run it? Maroney was averaging over 4.5 easily and yet we kept passing. i hate Josh McDaniels btw..QB coach turned into OC = passing a lot and inside runs
