Reggie a.......

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I agree. He's got to learn patience. That's the main problem with him. The kid has crazy physical talent, but he not only has a giant bullseye on him, he's gotten frustrated and he seems to be trying too hard ...

I agree. He's got to learn patience. That's the main problem with him. The kid has crazy physical talent, but he not only has a giant bullseye on him, he's gotten frustrated and he seems to be trying too hard to be a human highlight reel. Like I said, if we can get a TE like Gonzo next offseason, this offense will really scare people.

Maroney, Jones-Drew, and Norwood probably would do better behind our line because they're more in Deuce's mold, especially Maroney. They're more power backs with a huge dose of speed than someone who's a blazingly fast 'tweener (which is what Bush is at this point).

i don't know, but i just really feel that reggie is trying to always hit the homerun, which is why he dances around in the backfield and tries to get to the corner, rather than squaring his shoulders upfield, and running full steam ahead.... whether those guys are jones-drew a power back? i'm not too sure about that one.... maroney, norwood, and addai yeah, but jones-drew is more of a slasher like reggie.... at least that's how he was in college... the biggest thing is that reggie is so used to being able to escape and fly down the field after dancing around and making ppl miss, that he is relying on that ability, only that in the nfl, everyone is a lot faster, so he can't rely on his speed as much as when he was playing the arizona's and washington state's of the world.... hopefully, in the offseason, he'll watch a lot of film and see how poorly his running has been and he starts to turn the ball upfield rather going east-west all the time...

Jones-Drew is like 5'7" 220. He's got speed, but he's built like a fire hydrant.

I swear, some of you guys don't even read other posts on this board. I don't even understand why we're discussing this.

NFL coaches were studying this kid before he was even drafted. You guys are freaking out after 8-games of his rookie year. Give it a rest. This kid gets game-planned for nearly as much as LT.

Moving on...

Oldies has it down. What are you supposed to do as a running back when defenses are basically planning for one thing....your demise. Reggie has to deal with this EVERY WEEK. It's almost as if fight or flight adrenaline rushes overcome opposing defenses to make sure he goes nowhere. If you notice they'll practically celebrate twice as much whenever they tackle him down. It could be just me but thats what I am seeing. You can't deny the fact that the attention he draws is a big reason for Colston and Brees' success. My only frustration with Reggie isn't the fact that his stats are lousy but he is not helping his own cause either. You take the notion that defenses are planning against you and you know you are gonna face some serious aggression from run defenses but when you do too much jigglin and juking before you hit top speed.......but I like most of you understand that HE WILL learn to adjust and be more north-south about it. You guys talk about Addai and Maroney. Who are their QB's? And who do you think defenses are going to plan for when they play those guys? It certainly isn't the RB's. Eventually people will see that Brees is developing (if he's not already there) into one of these elite types of Qb's. When that happens I promise you'll see less 8 in the box issues and ultimately....leaving Reggie with a little breathing room. We are 6-2 and I am heading into dangerous territory this weekend. I have a Steelers fan and a Falcon fan coming to my house to watch the game. Pray for me guys. BELIEVE IN THE TEAM AND THE SYSTEM. The Saints will succeed. GO SAINTS!!!!!

Reggie is not and cannot be utilzed as a receiver. He is a back and has the special presence to be a special weapon when he comes down off Cloud 9. Y'all remember the Thunder and Lightning package of NY Giants? That is what NOLA has right now with Reggie and Deuce and once they can ultimately exploit the potential this has (with Drew looking out Colston?)....hoo boy.
Any of you resident NOLAs think Reggie is being 'featured' too much? My fear in that Ravens game was that the team is forcing Reggie way too much. Trying to pass in the end zone? I never watched USC but did he do that in college?

Heck even Wali Lundy of the Texans has more rushing yards, a better yard per carry and more TDs.

Man I'm glad we took mario Williams.
