Re: Rumor: Deuce MAY be Cut Tomorrow?

Looks more and more like we will be picking Deuces replacement in the draft. Can anybody say.... Mendenhall.

IMO it's only a rumor , at least for now because I never heard or read any reports of the "cut"

Re: Rumor: Deuce MAY be Cut Tomorrow?

To me, this sounds a lot like a few years ago when the saints drafted Deuce while Ricky was still on the roster. Replace an aging and often injured RB with a young stud replacement. If you remember back to that year, the saints had MUCH greater needs than RB, but that pick really paid off later on.

Don't get me wrong, I am in no way comparing Ricky and Deuce, but it does sound like a similar situation.

I would like the saints to fix some holes on defense, but I am also a firm believer in drafting the best talent available in the first round and worry about need in later rounds.

If they didn't want him they wouldn't have pushed it back. Nice job front office and good luck Deuce.

Re: Deuce rumor and restructure (merged)

Not too throw too much man-love at Deuce, but WHAT A SAINT! Instead of throwing a tantrum about the front office playing Missouri (show me) with his health, instead he says, "OK, I'll show you"

No negative press. No sideways comments. Pure class. The Saints are bigger than one player, but if this front office plays him dirty after this I have to think long and hard about it.... I don't root for the bad guys. Ever.
