I agree with whodi's original statement, there is no reason right now, or IMO, the foreseeable future for us to HAVE to do anything with Deuce. He's a high character guy who when healthy is damn good. I think especially with the rising of the salary cap, it will allow us to keep both Deuce and Reggie. I mean if you really think about it, it's not hard to imagine how good we can make it having both of those guys in the same backfield. There are so many different things we can do, so many mismatches that we can exploit with Reggie splitting out or going in motion and Deuce pounding it inside or even busting it to the corner. I think for now we need to keep him because he's such an asset still. I hope he's a Saint until the day he quits football.

I say they'll keep the both of them as long as they can!

as long as both guys are happy about sharing the backfield, I say leave it alone.

Well it has been said a million times..having Reggie Bush on the team helps Deuce. it helps him prolong his career by not having to be the workhorse. Yes, he will still get the bulk of the carries, but Bush takes a lot of heat off of him. Whats funny to me, is that when Deuce came in, he was lightning, and ricky williams was thunder...now deuce has evolved to thunder. People tend to forget that Deuce has top end speed for a RB. I dont see why getting rid of him is necessary. I think we should keep the two of them and keep the defenses guessing. Getting rid of Deuce just means the saints would have to go out and get another quality back to play his role.

It's all in the reflexes.
