"It's an adjustment," Sproles continued. "I like my role, though."

I absolutely love it. What a great pickup. He's everything the Reggitarians were hoping Bush would be.

Great pickup & we still get something for RB - no matter how little or what high round.

Totally agree...I also dig that the pro Bush camp has been muzzled. I believe Saints should deal with San Diego more often...Brees then Sproles what other major contributors could they send our way

Reggitarians...that's funny

So I guess that makes me a Reggitarian-American?!?

But he is unquestionably, the second best free agent signing since Brees, though Greer is right there...
