Another Power Back?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; In all this I see stecker as the odd man out. Bennet will most likely get 3-5 touches a game, He'll provide Duece with a break while still allowing Bush to move into the slot and open up the field....

Why would we need another power back? We have Deuce....and with Bush we will now have the Southern version of thunder & lightning.

Bennett was signed because we never dreamed Houston would give us Bush. Bennett is a rocket but he is not a power back. Bush will never survive many years of pounding the middle. Duce is our one and only true power back (TB) inbetween the tackles, Now with bush, thank you Houston, on the roster I do not see the $$ sense in keeping both. Fan sense yes, money no. In two years we will have a choice to make, or at least start thinking about, what to do because of the $$ tied up in the backfield. The time frame will be in how long Bush's contract is for. This is an issue I think we discussed in another thread, and time will come when have to choice. Is it better now to get a back that can possible step in when and if Duce is no longer on the team. I really doubt (seriously) we would trade Bush if he can stay healthy and do half of what we think he can do. Duce has a chance because with Bush the D can not line 8 in the box. Same with Brees.
If both stay and can keep healthy i will happy. I just do not think Bush is a every down back. He is to good to keep in the TB position only.
The only other thing I can hope for is Karney get the chance to show what he can do. Who know we could have a Larry Zonka type in the waiting and Bush can be our Mercury Morris.
