apparently you've never heard of pierre thomas before. he's not only had great success on screen passes, he's scored on NUMEROUS screen passes.

After that, he returned with a vengeance! He was a demon on Special Teams and came in handy as a running back and receiver. I have some favorite moments of Sproles. Two in particular are in the 2007 playoffs in Indianapolis when a short pass lead to a touchdown. The other is the game winning run in the playoffs against the Colts.

Though last season, he was terrible. I think we overpaid him. Too many fumbles for a guy that was making 6 million. To the point where he lost his starting position as kickoff/punt returner. I won't miss him at all this season.

Anyway... I hope he can regain what he had with you guys and even more. Here's to a great season!
Now, if we could just get a few of those cheerleaders of yours....

I think its a good sign.
Oh I like that one better. I was thinking of Colts fans and another CB.

Three whole fumbles and a fan turns on a player?

Really? Three?

I'd bet large sums of money you'd fumble every single time.

If our coaching staff likes him, so do I.

Geaux Sproles.

Three fumbles in one year? Didn't Bush have a 3 fumble game or two?

EXACTLY! We are stacked on WR, we need a Running Back that can actually RUN the ball! This is the one good argument I have heard made in favor of Reggie over Sproles, but it STILL just proves why we will be better off with Sproles. He can RUN the ball.

I'm not sure we'll rely on Sproles running the ball all too often, as long as Ingram, Ivory, & P.T. can stay healthy

This is almost vaguely kind of on topic, but I'm sharing it anyway.
