Depth, depth and more depth.

When the Saints drafted Reggie Bush second overall in the 2006 draft, fans wondered how the carries would be shared between Bush and veteran Deuce McAllister. There was concern that McAllister would not be happy about sharing touches.

The situation could not have worked out better. McAllister and Bush, who employ different running styles, have a singular goal in mind: winning. Both players epitomize the phrase “team players” and are leading presences in the Saints’ locker room and beyond.

McAllister, the “thunderback” out of Ole Miss, has no problem splitting carries with the dynamic Bush and the two runners complement each other like few other duos in the league. McAllister churned out three one hundred yard rushing games out of the last four games he appeared in during the regular season and eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark for the fourth time in his first six season. In so many words, Deuce was turned loose, a harbinger of things to come in ’07.

How can you not love our chances with the running backs we have. These guys are special. I even like the ones who haven't played a down. All I can say is WOW! What a team.
