Sproles' Record should have an asterisk!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Do you realize that he set the record in the same year as the new kickoff rule that resulted in a record number of touchbacks? Sproles only returned 40 kickoffs this year vs. the 50+ of the past 3 years. ...

Sproles' Record should have an asterisk!

Do you realize that he set the record in the same year as the new kickoff rule that resulted in a record number of touchbacks? Sproles only returned 40 kickoffs this year vs. the 50+ of the past 3 years. He would have SHATTERED the record given 10+ more kickoffs and possibly topped 3,000 total yards!




For the record, I borrowed the argument from someone else.

great point, considering they are making the excuse that everyone is putting up huge yards this year. The fact is that Drew had more yards than anyone this year, so why could he do it and others couldn't? Maybe he is the best in the league...

Pete Prisco can suck a giant asterisk for all I care. Substitute the word for what I really think he should suck.
