Far & away, the best RB to ever don the black & gold. Once he smelled endzone, there was no denying him 6 pts. The thing about Deuce is that not only was he exceptional on the field.....he was one of the most outgoing & friendly athletes I've ever met. My 12 yr. old will still tell you his favorite Saint of all time was Deuce because he always talked to him.

And as for the "work ethic" comment......I don't know of anyone who would agree with that. Deuce isn't playing because of injury......not bad work ethic.

I miss him too. He lives here in Madison, Ms. Or at least is here alot. My wife and I saw him a few weeks ago while we were out to dinner at AJ's. Not my favorite place in town but for some reason alot of people go there. As does Deuce. All that aside, He is NOT in football shape. I miss him also and told him so but he added that he feels the game has passed him by and he bought me a shot. He's just done. He is just living life right now and trying to hang on to whatever cash he has left which I don't think is much.

Deuce had terrible stats on 3rd/4th and short. That always surprised me.

Deuce was notorious for NOT being a work out guy. Anyone with any knowledge of Deuce McAllister knows that. Its rumored he still doesn't know where the weight room is at Ole Miss.

I'm shocked that anyone who's followed Deuce's career doesn't know that.

I liked Deuce because he played hard. It's a damn shame his knees cost him a few more years, but he always gave me the impression that he is a classy guy.

For what it's worth we couldn't run block when he was playing either. LOL

"Work ethic" & being a gym guy are two completely different things. Deuce was always at camp & was routinely early for practices. That was the point. Not to mention......his "work ethic" always showed up every Sunday.

Thanks man. He really is. One of the most humble and approachable people you will ever meet.
