Final Maroney thought; Wednesday slate
By Mike Reiss
On Twitter, @Quotesfromthe6 writes, "You should do a story about Maroney's AFC championship game vs. San Diego. Main reason we won. Always class act despite unfortunate events."
Laurence Maroney was immense that day in the 2007 playoffs as the Patriots beat the Chargers 21-12 to earn a berth in Super Bowl XLII. He had 122 yards on 25 carries, with one touchdown.
It was arguably his best performance in his four seasons in New England and a reminder that the word "bust" is too harsh to describe Maroney's time in New England.
While Maroney did not reach first-round expectations and become the game-breaking threat many thought he would be -- in part because of injuries -- he was still a contributor to some very good teams.
Here is a look at today's media schedule as the Patriots prepare for Sunday's game against the Jets:
11:15-noon -- Media access to the locker room
11:15 a.m. -- Tom Brady media access
12:15 p.m. -- Bill Belichick press conference
1:05 p.m. -- Media access to practice
3 p.m. -- Rex Ryan conference call to New England
4 p.m. -- Injury report released
4:30 p.m. -- Mark Sanchez conference call to New England
