Deuce looks much thinner, an much faster!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think he looked pretty good out there. I can tell he's definitely feeling the competition, and looks to be thriving off of it. I cracked a big long grin when he bulldozed his way into the endzone. It's been ...

I think he looked pretty good out there. I can tell he's definitely feeling the competition, and looks to be thriving off of it.

I cracked a big long grin when he bulldozed his way into the endzone. It's been awhile.

Yeah, well.....he better look good. He's got a rookie by the name of Reggie Bush nipping at his heels like a rabid chihuaha.

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.

Whoopsie Brah!
They must co-exist.
The Salary Cap situation dictates this.
Their individual success (long term) to me seems to rest within a symbiotic relationship.
Deuce+Reggie=longevity
or if you will
Reggie+Deuce=longevity
For both of their careers
It still is in question as to how this will play out.
From what I have seen of Deuce though, I have a hard time believing he would begrudge another player helping his team win.
Reggie shared carries/ touches with LenDale White.
I have a hard believing he would be upset with Deuce's touches if it benefits his team.
Then again,.
I could be full of poop.
I am and will continue to be a.............

SUNSHINER!!!

Sean pretty much knows and is comfortable with his running game.
You don't scheme for a particular opponent in the preseason.
Also, Why would you "Tip Your Hand" and give up your playbook when you have Deuce and Reggie?
We weren't playing against the Colts as much as finding out what our personnel are capable of executing within our own (vanilla) playbook.
The emphasis was obviously on the O-Line and the WRs.
Look at the run to pass ratio in the first half.
Why look at Deuce?
Why look at Reggie?
Will either of them be cut?
Need I answer?
The WR s needed a showcase.
As did Brees' arm.
Again, I doubt the staff even looked at the Colts' personnel and scheme as far as winning the game.
Who cares?
The Preseason is used to evaluate your own personnel to see how well they will execute your team's overall scheme.
Could the Saints compete with the Colts in the Regular Season?
Not likely.
This is Preseason though.
Take a deep breath and relax....
We seem to have a tough coach that win or lose (this year) will only accept competitive players around him.
That alone is a reason for me to think of............

SUNSHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice to see. Like Rocky stated, their success depends on each other. Hopefully we see the old Deuce and lots of it healthy for the whole year!!!

Umm... then why pound the ball with Deuce and Reggie in the second half Rocky? You're just making an excuse for them to suck. I do see the point you're trying to make though... but it's not working here. So first half Payton decided to evaluate the WR's and in the second half it was the RB's turn. Come on now.

He looked good, glad for a few reason, one he'll be a big part of our offense again and yesterday I drafted him in my league and wondered if I made the right choice, I also drafted Bush in the event he couldn't play due to injury,
I'm worried about our chances this season in winning, we just look awful to say the least, keeping the faith though...

Ditto for being a good outing for Deuce. I do think the one thing they do not want to show much at all until the season is the sets with both Deuce and bush in the same backfield. THAT will be a powerful weapon full of options, Once we get to Cleveland I believe we will be saying "Ohhhh, like THAT!" hehe
