Just giving you all some feedback on Sproles.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Does Sproles like running out of bounds as much as Bush? It always seemed Bush liked those really long white lines....

Yes, last year was rough for Sproles. I had him on my fantasy team as a backup and his numbers were dismal. I'm hoping Sproles has a Jets/Tomlinson-like bounceback in him!

And Sproles has one more year under his belt than Bush. The problem with Bush is that it is all mental! His mental lapses when carrying the ball is horrible. Watch tape and you see how he carries on PR especially. When crowd gets near him he has the ball away from his body when you are suppose to have it next to you. The way he dances allows for players to come from behind and knock the ball out with ease. If he is mentally out of the game we are done. We are so much better off with Sproles.
plus bush only played in 10 games since we drafted him (exageration)

The guy averages 5.3yd per carry and almost 9yds per reception and you "Won't miss him"???

Speaking of 'overpaying' - he sure kicked Ryan Mathews butt.

I'm not glad that he's gone but I won't miss him either. In the last couple of weeks they used Antoine Cason for kickoff returns and he did better.

Now if they gave him a contract similar to the one you guys gave him, I might like that but he was not worth 6.5 million.

All in all, I think it was a good signing for you guys. Last season was a disappointment but this could be a healthy change for him. As for Mathews... if he stays healthy, I have faith in him.

Not me. Sure there was question regarding his shoulder injury at the time but I still didn't think his time was over.

I'm not saying Sproles is done either. I think he was a good pick up for you guys. Sproles gave us some great moments but he just wasn't worth as much as we paid him.

Hmmmmm. Never notice that, but you guys have watched him play more than I have. No, I can say that Sproles is good at staying in bounds on tight plays.

True, but Bolts4Life hasn't ever done that.

For a non-Saints fan he is the least offensive that I have seen.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Sometimes it's the value per dollar that you are looking at and that leads to disappointment. I wish him well.....although I don't think he will stay healthy long enough to do well.

I am looking for good things from Sproles.
