Second year RB?
 
Which second year RB will have the best season?

cardsalltheway 03-16-2007 09:46 AM

I'm gonna say Laurence Maroney will because he will be pretty much the sole guy now.

portermvp84 03-16-2007 09:46 AM

Laurence Maroney will have a stand out year.

MaxV 03-16-2007 09:46 AM

I hope Joe Addai will.

Don Vito 03-16-2007 09:48 AM

With Dillon gone Maroney could put up some monster stats this year.

portermvp84 03-16-2007 09:50 AM

1. Maroney
2. Bush
3.Addia

MJD will be a pro bowler.

Splat 03-16-2007 09:51 AM

Wow this thread was up like 30 sec and had four posts lol.

Grizzlegom 03-16-2007 09:52 AM

i voted addai because MJD will still be sharing the load and i just dont like maroney.

i could see deangelo having a big year because deshaun is bound to get hurt.

Beans 03-16-2007 09:52 AM

Muzzoh Drew and Maroneyman.

Windy 03-16-2007 09:52 AM

Addai or MJD but I think LenDale White will have a breakout year.

I think Maroney will have the best year but I have this feeling that Reggie Bush will be much improved.

bigmac076 03-16-2007 10:01 AM

Joseph Addai

he plays for the patriots.

but the main reason is because when minnesota came to penn state everyone was hyping maroney as a potential heisman candidate and saying he would run all over our defense and they would kill us. he ended up running for like 24 yards on 15 carries or something like that but the whole thing just made me hate him.

I can live with that.

Rushing yards I'll take Maroney. Yards from scrimmage I'll take Bush.

bernbabybern820 03-16-2007 10:15 AM

if Bush can gain around 10 yards he'll have a great year. Too many players tackled him with one hand.

bsaza2358 03-16-2007 10:17 AM

I think Bush, White, Maroney, Addai, and MJD will all have great years. In terms of actual production, I foresee Maroney and Addai having the most success because there is really no one else to steal touches from them.

Freddy G 03-16-2007 10:54 AM

Mo Drew with still be splitting time, but he should have a lot of overall yards.

Bush will have the most yards, period.

Maroney will have the most rushing yards, and probably by a significant margin as well.

Draft King 03-16-2007 11:38 AM

MJD is going to have the biggest year of them all, with Fred Taylor getting older and having less carries, Jones-Drew will be forced the carry the load.

jkpigskin 03-16-2007 11:53 AM

wierd that everyone except maroney will be sharing time....

so i say maroney

New England - Laurence Maroney
[Home] Buffalo, Miami, N.Y. Jets, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Philadelphia, Washington
[Away] Buffalo, Miami, N.Y. Jets, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Dallas, N.Y. Giants

Indianapolis - Joseph Addai
[Home] Houston, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Denver, Kansas City, New England, New Orleans, Tampa Bay
[Away] Houston, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Oakland, San Diego, Baltimore, Atlanta, Carolina

New Orleans - Reggie Bush
[Home] Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Arizona, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Jacksonville, Tennessee
[Away] Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Houston, Indianapolis

I think I just may vote for Reggie Bush, given the wonderful draw of the NFC West in addition to the six division games against the NFC South (all of whom can be run on). He plays with one of the league's best backs in Duece McAllister though, which isn't the case with Laurence Maroney and Joseph Addai. That said, it wouldn't surprise me if Maroney has the most rushing yards, Bush the most receiving yards, and Addai the most yards from scrimmage.

It's hard to gauge though considering there's some flux in how New England and Indianapolis will handle their RB situations following the departure of veterans. How many goal-line carries will Maroney see? How much of the load will Addai have to carry?

There are backs that should consider themselves lucky that they don't have to face the Jacksonville Jaguars, Big John Henderson and Marcus Stroud specifically, twice a year like Addai does. It was hilarious how everyone trumpeted Mo Drew over Addai in 2006, when Drew has the enormous benefit of facing the Colts twice instead of the Jags defense twice (269 of Drew's 941 rushing yards - 28.6% for crying out loud - came in 2 games against the Colts). Considering they also ignored that Drew also had the benefit of playing behind Fred Taylor and one of the best run-blocking offensive lines in football, it's all par for the course I suppose.

Mauroney now that he's the feature back in New England.

Mini Steven Jackson :)

Space Ghost 03-16-2007 12:06 PM

My money is on Maroney because he will probably get the most touches out of all of those other guys.
