Sproles or Roby on Kick Returns?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Interested to see what happens Thursday night. When they signed Sproles, I thought for sure he'd be the KR guy, but then Roby survived the cuts and was named special teams captain. Is Roby just a gunner or is he ...

Sproles or Roby on Kick Returns?

Interested to see what happens Thursday night. When they signed Sproles, I thought for sure he'd be the KR guy, but then Roby survived the cuts and was named special teams captain. Is Roby just a gunner or is he our KR guy until further notice?

Crosby has such a weak leg (terrible touchback percentage) that whoever's back there Thursday should see some open space.

Not with Crosby kicking off.

Guy had 84 kickoffs last year . . . 4 touchbacks.

I don't want Sproles unnecessarily injuring himself if Sean figures him heavily in the three-prong running attack with Ingram and a rotation of who else we have.
I would, however, put Sproles in there two or three times just for ****s and giggles but leave the majority of returns for Roby just for him to contribute.

Give me Sproles... he's more elusive and explosive.

I would love to see Sproles show us what he is capable of now that he is in Black and Gold.

I'd like to see them alternate to some degree myself. Keep them motivated.

Also keeps them fresh on O.

The whole kick off rule just bites... but we have to be ready and take chances. I think they ought to change or do away with the extra point. Move it back to the 20 also or make everyone go for 2.

Depth chart says it's Devery Henderson . . . I'm guessing that's wrong.

Make TD's count for 7 and a two point option is either plus 1 point if you make it or minus 1 point if the defense stops you.
