Comparing Sproles vs Bush

This will make a better discussion after the Superbowl, but since I've had it with the whole NFL Network Faulk-Sanders love fest instead of the HOF game that should be on, I thought I'd bring it up now. What factors make a better running back? Yardage, perceived quickness, games played per season? What else? Everything I've read lately seems to take it as a given that Sproles is almost as good as Reggie and we didn't lose too much to Miami. I'm not convinced we didn't didn't get the better end of it.

Durability is at the top of the list. You can't make the team from the bike.

We'll miss Reggie's leadership.

I think Sproles is a pretty good leader too. I don't tknow if carries bats but I've read he's more of a quiet leader.

We've got enough leaders on this team that I don't think we'll miss Reggie's leadership on or off the field.

Watched him at practice yesterday.
Impressions:
vision
body control
burst
decisive
Sproles>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>> Bush

Listened to the 5 min of football content a midst the 55 min of commercials per hour on WWL-radio.
Bobby Hebert says to stop all the Sproles-Bush comparisons. That we are better than that.
SCREW YOU "Cannon"!
He and Deke think they know everything, and own Saints football.
That program is un-listenable anymore.
I miss Buddy-D soooooooo much.

I'll never understand why people dislike Reggie. If nothing else, I'll remember how he stepped up in that playoff game against arizona. We went to the NFC championship twice won a Super Bowl with him, let's see how many we play in and win without him.

Sproles reminds me a little of Warrick Dunn in the way he runs. A little guy who runs with power and balance, and turns it upfield quickly to squirt though the hole.

He's a solid addition.
