not even mentioning defense, but really, is duece the man he was?
can he return to his old form? i've seen very few flashes of it before he was hurt......and truthfully, i am worried about him........
sure, a super star qb would be welcome on any team but come draft day, who do you think will pass on bush and take leinart, really?
i would really like to know who thinks we're best to stick with duece? smitty

RE: qb, i

I am not sold on Deuce right now. Even before the knee injury, it appeared that he lost a great deal of speed. At this point I do not see anyone passing on Bush to take Leinart, including the Saints if they happen to get the top pick.

you noticed too, huh? if we're throwing out scenarios, how about this?
let's trade brooks, duece and the 1st or 2nd (hopefully) (by the way, anyone thinking houston is gonna win, well, i would'nt ...and then again, the saints would be blessed enough to pull an upset) to the giants for eli.....................smitty

Smitty- I would trade Brooks, Deuce, and 1st round draft pick for Eli in heartbeat. Only issue is I do not think the Giants would go for it...

u, guys are cracking me up. good to see humor in here. but have to differ on your opinion, granted deuce had a down year maybe year and half. but he's the ideal type player regardless of position. never give up on a player after injury too many rb's have come back from acl's edge the latest. deuce has the heart of a lion and i would hate to see a class act like him leave.

i never questioned deuce's heart and he is the class act of the saints.......
i miss him and it was long before the injury............
truely, i do have tears in my eyes again as i find myself lmao just thinking where the saints will be much less who they will draft and trade..........
there really is humor in misfortune and for some reason the saints have my attention.....smitty

Can't bring myself to give up on Deuce, either. When he's on, he is upper echelon. Can only hope that he can regain his old form. Just my opinion, I haven't heard anything in regards to his knees.

I hope he can to BnB but I'm afraid of the fact that we haven't heard anything about his knees. If we draft Bush we could keep both and pound the run all game long.

RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: qb, i

I think Deuce needs to get back to hitting the holes with speed but I never thought he was all that fast anyway so I haven't noticed a drop off there. My biggest problem with the running game has been blocking. There just have not been the holes that have been there in the past for Deuce. Still, he's got some things to work on and coming back off the injury isn't going to be easy.
