Saints not short on offensive weapons

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Let's see, Carolina had He Hate Me returning kicks. They also have Chris Gamble who was a damn good returner in college. They also have Drew Carter, and Deshaun foster has returned kicks. So they weren't exactly devoid of players ...

So they weren't exactly devoid of players who could do it either. They CHOSE to let Smith do it cause he was the best at it, same with Bush here. Every team has guys who CAN return, but very few teams have difference makers at returner. Steve Smith is one, so is Reggie Bush.

Is that the "Bishop" in your avy?.......

Um, Chris Gamble is as good a returner as any we have. Outside of Reggie. Beerman sucks now, people need to give up that dream. How much weight has Deuce gained? He hasn't returned KICKS since his rookie season, did he ever return punts? We tried Stallworth on punt returns some last season, negative. Henderson has not done it either. So, basically, the choice is not to take out best option at punt returner and have him return, or take a hasbeen, a power back, a guy who did not do so well at it the prior year, or a guy who has never done it, over a guy who excels at it. Awesome. I guess we can get any scmoe to fair catch. Good call.

I don't know where he hate me is playing this year has to do with the fact Steve Smith still returned punts when he was in Carolina, but okay.

gamble might be as good as anyone on our team at returning punts, but you cannot negate the fact that we have more options than carolina does in that regard. which furthers my belief that there's no need to use bush on punt returns, but okay

ever wonder why deuce was limited to kick returns?
