Can we set a target date say for 2020?
The money he is getting and the picks we can get for him. I don't think we can afford to wait that long.

Re: What's with all the hate on Reggie?

I think he still has that scared rookie look in his eyes. That fumble against the jets, was completely his fault. He was carrying the ball like a elementary school kid carries their history book. I dont hate him, but i cant say ive never used a few swear words when talking about his gameplay. He just needs to get his head together.

Oh. Inner ear problems cause dizziness, nausia, and sometimes vomiting, when u are in constant motion, or even when u are standing still. So riding a roller coaster would be pretty ignorant, if u have this problem. So, nothing to do with fear. More like a hatred for puking. Its ok, the person this statement is written for, will know what its about.

Re: What's with all the hate on Reggie?

If you think of him a wide receiver/return man and not a running back it fits in your brain.

How much we paid for a return man wide receiver doesn't fit in your brain.

Erik Metcalf--A multi-talented player, Metcalf excelled at offense and as a returner on special teams. In his second NFL season, he led the league in kickoff return yards (1,052) and return touchdowns (two). He also led the NFL in punt return touchdowns in four different seasons (1993-1995, 1997). Overall, Metcalf finished his career with 2,392 rushing yards, 541 receptions for 5,572 yards, 3,453 punt return yards, and 5,813 yards returning kickoffs. This gave him a total of 17,230 all-purpose yards, ranking him among the NFL's top 10 in that category at the time of his retirement. He also scored 55 touchdowns (12 rushing, 31 receiving, ten punt returns, two kickoff returns).

I don't get the concern for all the money he is being paid. If I had to pay it...then I'd get it. The Saints have a great team and are undefeated. How much each player is making doesn't seem to have an effect on how they play together as a unit.

Re: What's with all the hate on Reggie?

wow, Eric Metcalf, good mention. I used to watch him light up the Oilers, and then he gave the Saints some **** when he played for ATL. Good comparison.

I dont give a hoot about who makes what.

Re: What's with all the hate on Reggie?

I was just trying to have some fun on the last post similar to this. I was calling him clay eater or he could be a candidate to suffer a turf head injury.
For whatever reason this guy is lacking something this year. I am baffled as to what it is. Certainly power is not his game and never has been. I agree if he can put together games like Minn last year he will be able to earn his stripes and legitimize his status on this team. If not he is going to have a hard time getting that money next year. So far most will agree he has been overshadowed by the rest of the running backs. Maybe his pride is hurt and he has some other problems with the coaches we do not know about. For now I think we stick with him and see what happens and hope for the best.

last year he could change a game single handidly by returning a punt for a TD or at least gaining yardage on a punt return....reggie hasnt done much of anything on special teams and to be honest....im getting nervous just seeing him on the field for fear of him putting the ball on the ground
Absolutely agree. anytime I hear "Bush back to receive the punt" i **** myself
