    but its not like he ONLY does this to the bad teams. here are his game logs for the 2004 season:

    2004: Rush yards YPC
    Toledo: 107 7.7
    Illinois State: 141 7.8
    Colorado State: 132 7.8
    Northwestern: 145 6.0
    Penn State: 144 5.8
    Michigan: 145 7.6
    Michigan State: 54 4.2
    Illinois: 72 4.8
    Indiana: 89 5.6
    Wisconsin: 57 7.1
    Iowa: 156 8.2

    he also had 12 TDs. only 3 games where he didnt rush for 100 yards, and only 4 here he didnt avg atleast 6 ypc, but it never got under 4. he doesent do exactly what he did to tulsa against everyone, but he does perfrom good every week.

    There ya go man.. And he is the full time back so he will showcase his skills even more this year! :grin:

    Re: Draft Maroney NOW

    Anyone think the Vikings will ever draft a RB in the first round?

    I don't like the last RB we drafted in the first round! If we do that again lets hope he doesn't end up like him

    Yah I think Maroney would totally be worth it.. Since Bush and Williams will be gone by the time we pick.. Maybe even Laurence will be gone but that would be sick to get him!

    Re: Draft Maroney NOW

    I didn't think Maroney looked as good in the Tulsa game as he did last year. Other than the two long runs he got stuffed. I can't wait to see him against the big ten then we'll see how much he has improved.
    That said I would still love to have Maroney on the vikings. We need an everydown back. What we have is a bunch of slightly below average backs who are overated by vikings fans and have benefited from defenses focusing on our prolific passing attack. True Moore put up good numbers last year but if the coaches are always so quick to demote him he can't be that good.

    Hmm not bad i guess, but really do we need yet another runningback??? We could use the picks on something like our o-line, corner or linebacking core.

    Our rb's are already set even if he does have good stats.
