Sproles is here now and as long as he can stay on the field, he's better in my book. Plus he has a knack for returning kicks, so no more holding my breath with Bush standing back there...
Amen brother, and he shuts up the Bushies.

I never loved Bush as a player. Since rarely watch college football (unless LSU is doing well) I had no expectations. All hype actually made me more skeptical. But I did get caught up in it during that 1st preseason schedule.

There were lots of times I cursed his name. But I did come to appreciate what he offered. I still think he's the best 3rd down back in the league. But I'm glad everything worked out like it did. Welcome aboard Darren!

He had moments of greatness, but moments. But I agree you cant compare Sproles and Bush yet. Give Sproles a year with Brees and Sean first. I think we will use him better here then in SD

But if you do, there stats are very close....but Sproles has a better YPC AVG.

Sproles has a better average for rushing, receiving and punt returns.

^ listen to the voice of reason, people.

I always appreciated what reggie gave to us. Was he perfect? Of course not. Who among you are? Lets see THAT list.

People have expectations. Thing is, they have them from their COUCH.

Fair enough, but if you re-read your post, it implied that we will win less without him. Like I said, I thought he was piece of the puzzle to our winning. Not as important as Brees or Thomas, IMO, but he was used to the best of his abilities. Now with an improved front 4 on D, and the addition of Ingram and Kreutz on O, I think were in better position now than we were during our 2009 season.
