Deuce has looked really good in the two games he's played - granted, he only had, like, 2-carries in the first game. He still did nice pounding the ball and making the hole that wasn't there. Deuce is going to hurt teams this year. And, just when they figure out how to stop them, Baby Matrix brings a whole new deminsion. Then, while the team is debating over who to cover, there goes Joe Horn over the top.

I can't wait until the regular season. We'll actually have a game plan and won't be evaluating talent. I think Payton was trying to get Brees into the feel of the game for the first half. Brees had very little playing time in the first two games. His shoulder is fine, but he hasn't thrown long routes all Summer and it's time he gets a lot of reps to find his groove once again.

I don't understand why we didn't try to pound the ball more the first half... the outcome would have been much closer. Deuce does look good out there... just like the Deuce of old.
That is EXACTLY what I was thinking papz. We were trying to throw it way too much, to guys like Ernie Conwell and Jammal Jones. We need to be pounding it in there with Deuce (who by the way looks better than he has in years, more on this later) and then swinging it out to Bush. We threw it almost 20 times in the first half.

Anyways, about Deuce. He looks a lot slimmer than he has the last two years, which I think is probably the best thing for him. The last two years he just kept getting bigger and bigger and you could tell that it was taking a toll on his speed and agility. I always think back to that game against the Panthers at the end of the 2004 season when Deuce broke that long run down the left side, and offensive linemen were beating him down the field getting blocks and defensive linemen were chasing him down. It was ridiculous. Now he looks streamlined, but he's just naturally a big fella so he can still use his power to his advantage. I am looking for Payton to give the ball to the big man, and then mix in Bush runs and Brees passes.

Hey Saint25, you know you have my login name on another site

Anyways, Deuce is back to the old take a 80 yarder on Phillies D form...I think he'll get his 1,000 yards again this season coming off an injury, even though his run was against a lower rated D

I think he was doing good before the injury, and I was sure he would be back after the injury. I hope the Saints lead the league in rushing, with Deuce and Reggie.

Duece looks great..lean and fast! Reggie and Duece have to co-exist, but Duece knows if he doesn't bring it, he will not be around more than a year. If he continues to play at a high level, then he will get the touches. Competition is good in this case. Duece has to perform
