Reggie

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think Reggie may be accepting his role somewhat. I still think we are better with him and agree he can make plays that our other runners can not make. Our dilemma and more so the coaches is the price ...

I don't know if I would take anyone for him but I would take draft 'picks'. we have a history of doing well with later round draft picks. We could use some special teams help the ways its going.

Also doesn't make much sense to have a Number 2 overall pick sitting 3rd string anything. I mean come on really?

I'll say this in caps so its clear "I HOPE HE TURNS IT AROUND I HOPE HE WINS GAMES FOR US". Right now it doesn't make much sense business wise.
I asking what you think Reggie's trade value is. With his body of work, his injury history and his heavy contract, who is going to deal for him? What 'picks' would you as the decision maker give up for him?

This is all to say that I think we are stuck with Reggie for better or worse. I don't think we could get a deal done for him.

Re: Reggie

I don't see Loomis being able to trade Reggie due to his contract and his injuries. What team would be dumb enough to trade away their future for a 3rd down specialist/punt returner anyways (btw I like Reggie)

bill belichick also has a history of not using running backs well

he has a plethora of running backs because he doesnt know how to use them and the pats run game is virtually non-existant until the game is already won

the pats are ranked 13th in rushing offense but lets be honest....its not because of the running backs.....its because of the passing attack and the ridiculous offensive line they have

reggie is better suited in our system than any other in the league and he is very lucky to have been drafted by us.....he wouldnt have a job right now IMO if he had gone anywhere else

Re: Reggie

this is the team that passed for 5000 yards with out one receiver gaining a thousand, and the team that just had seven players score a td in one game. in other words they spread the ball around a lot and not one player is going to get huge stats every week. this is why they are so effective, and i still say you'll see the biggest impact from reggie the first time we are playing from behind, which hasn't happened yet. i don't think there is a better receiving back in the league than reggie and that fits great in our offensive scheme.

Re: Reggie

Our FO does seem to over pay players. Reggie is just one of them. However, I like Reggie and I believe he will turn it around soon. I hope he doesn't make me eat my words.
