I'm really happy for the guy. Must be his best rushing performance so far in his career. Only 27 yards away from 1000 which only makes me think the Saints used him the wrong way. He is proving he is a RB and not an expensive decoy.

Great for Reggie. 200yards, and there was only 1 huge run of 76. It was probably as good a game running as he's ever had.

Even if you remove the 76 yarder he still averaged 5.3 per carry.

Sorry to tell you guys this, but I'd heard it was a 4th rounder if he played well.

Looks like a win-win deal for both teams.

I'm happy that he's doing well, but i am way more happy that we have sproles instead of Reggie

Reggie is a good player, we may have used him wrong but injuries don't lie and he couldnt stay healthy for us.

Sproles is better for us, good luck to reggie,

Really happy for him as well, I knew he had talent, but it wasn't the fit for us. We got Sproles who is getting it done, and RB is getting it done elsewhere.

Reggie didn't fit our offense, simply put. We spread the ball around too much to different players to allow Reggie to get enough touches to get into a rhythm. He's very much a rhythm runner(like a Barry Sanders, though not saying he is Barry Sanders) who has a bunch of negative plays, but kind of continually works at manipulating the defense in order to finally find some hole. It is almost as if he learns what to do to a defense the more and more touches he gets. The way we used him in our offense was 1 touch every so often and it ended up putting him into situations where he'd just get tackled in the backfield. There was no way he'd ever have worked in our offense to full potential. Sproles fits our offense much better.

Looks like he's going to crack 1,000 yards and play all 16 games. Huge game today. I don't know how much he has to do get get us the best pick possible, but I think he's going to do it.

Reggie didn't fit our offense because we have an unselfish offense. Good for him, he finally got what he wanted and we got what we wanted in Sproles.
