Star Power

I'm a little put off by the amount of attention to Reggies TD sunday. Granted, it was the game winning score, but this kid has done nothing but played his heart out each game. Why I'm saying this is some have ignored what he was doing before and just pointing out that he didn't score yet. But he was active in keeping drives alive, encouraging his other team-mates, and breaking up arguements on the field that could have cost us penalties if they would have gone further. This kid is a team player. I never thought we'd get this much out of him. If I were ot Tampa Bay, I would have never have punted it to us like they did. It was just too perfect. Also, big props to our linebackers. I liked seeing Mr. Clark cracking people out there. My only complaint is I would have like to see them go down the field a little bit more. But a win is a win.

RE: Star Power

They made a big point to mention his 11 catches in addition to the punt return on ESPN tonight.

RE: Star Power

i just hate that Deuce had 2 beautiful runs yesterday that were simply overlooked on account of Reggie's 1st touchdown.

Not saying it shouldn't be mentioned as a PHENOMENAL game winner, but it wasn't the only play of the game. Deuce looks like he's going to get his 1,300 yards he was aiming for before the season. That's just an awesome recovery.

RE: Star Power

Yes indeed. Watching Duece run, it's amazing how much patience he has. It does even look like he's running that fast. But he's just waiting for his blocks to develop. That's a veteran move. I think Reggie has the tendency to out-run his blocks. He'll learn. Yes Reggies punt return did win us the game, but without Duece racking up all those yards in the first quarter, and without Brees playing smart....etc Reggies punt return would be too little too late. Overall message: Great team effort.

Deuce got his big media moment after RW was traded.
The big story then was that the Saints drafted a RB in the 1st rd (Deuce) when they had a proven RB (RW).
The next big story was that Deuce made the Saints not regret trading RW.

Reggie is the flavor of the month. BTW he won the Heisman a year ago so they have to hype him.
The media "Heads" have been talking him up for 3+ years now. Of course they have been on his nuts. They hate being wrong.
Even more. They love saying:"I Told You So!".
No one is overlooking or disrespecting Deuce.
Reggie is just hot to talk about right now.
Oh, By the way.
We're playing as a team.
We're 4-1.
Who Dat?

I'm no one.
Who are you?

Deuce and Reggie both got lots of pub tonight on ESPN. Face it, without Reggie, the Saints wouldn't be getting nearly as much press as they've gotten thus far, even if they had a 4-1 record.

BTW, the Saints are #5 in the Totally-Made-Up NFL BCS on FoxSports: http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/6045054

I think this is the first time I have ever referenced him but...
Michael Irvin did list BOTH Reggie and Deuce as two of the top 5 playmakers of the week. Someone else pointed out also that Steve Young listed Drew Brees as the #5 top QB this year. Not bad. Nice seeing NOLA boys getting more 'n more recognition.

All I can say is that I've never been more confident that our team won't panic or kill ourselves. (I might eat it later, but oh well). I'm a little nervous about this Eagles game mainly because of McNabb. I know we can do a shoot out, but with Harper out and our habit of giving up the deep ball, I'm gonna be biting my nails the whole game. But my question is this: How do you prepare for a guy on his first NFL start? I can belly-hoo about how the Saints gave up so much, but I will to this instead. I tip my hat to you Rookie Quarterback with the wierd name. You impressed me. I'm glad we only have to play you twice a year.

I think I love watching Deuce run the most, he's just fun to watch, as for Bush I wouldn't trade him away for nobody right now, this guy is the real deal and one day soon will be labeled as a special player, you can bank on it..
While a few of us were chatting here on the site Sunday during the game I was saying give the ball to Deuce more which they didn't, I mean Deuce was running wild the first half but the second half they didn't have him in to many plays.

Rest In Peace JoeSam, thanks for everything my friend.
