Darren Sproles.

Darren Sproles vs. Texansí defense: While the Texans didnít blitz as much as you would expect, Sproles still had a great day. He had six receptions for 50 yards and a 30-yard touchdown on a sweep. Again, he has been an impact player for the Saints, a rich-manís version of Reggie Bush.

Put them in pads and give 'em a football and Sproles outruns Reggie to the endzone.

Reggie seldom outran anyone, Sproles looks like he can do it regularly.

He's better than Reggie Bush, imho.

That would be a poor-man's version of Bush; isn't he costing us less than what we would have had to pay Bush to stay?

I agree I never understood how Reggie was an important part of our offense and we supposingly built our offense around Reggie (per payton). The day he was traded was the best thing we ever did as a team. Sproles is gonna be somebody!! Anytime he gets a return he's a threat at big yardage and/or a TD. He actually makes the kick returns interesting compared to years past.

OK...I'm gonna just write this off as someone exagerating for effect.

Surely you don't think that trading Bush away was more important than signing Brees...as just one example?

They can cough up Hester and then we would have three of a kind.

But Sproles has what Reggie didn't. An understanding that you need to run north/south. He has instincts for finding the gaps and lanes or at least processes faster on the field.
Sproles knows not to run out in the street in front of that truck...Reggie had to stop and think about it. Sproles hits the creases HARD and can shed arm tackles. Sproles gets his yards quickly and is built with a low center of gravity. Worth every penny.
