Darren Sproles a perfect fit for Saints

Reggie who?

Remember that guy, the one with the big diamonds and the hot girlfriend and the Heisman Trophy that was taken away?

No?

Why would you, what with that little spark plug Darren Sproles the perfect fit, in every imaginable way, in the role Reggie Bush used to occupy for the New Orleans Saints?

Of the avalanche of records the Saints set this season, one big one has been overlooked because Drew Brees has been unconscious all season. In his first season in New Orleans, the 5-foot-6 Sproles set an NFL record for net yards with 2,696, six more than Derrick Mason's previous record with Tennessee in 2000. It was nice that Sproles was on the receiving end of the pass that broke Dan Marino's record for passing yards in a season, and that it was for a touchdown, but Sproles' more impressive contribution to the Saints is that he has done everything well -- and better than the guy he replaced.

Without Sproles, there might not be 5,476, Brees' ridiculous NFL record for passing yards in a season, or his NFL-record 71.2 completion percentage or his NFL-record 468 completions or his NFL-record 278 first-down passes or his NFL-record 13 300-yard games or his NFL-record seven consecutive 300-yard games. You get the point. There might not be 467.1, the Saints' NFL record for yards per game, 16.3 yards more than the closest team. And there certainly might not be 13-3, a record that earned New Orleans the No. 3 seeding in the NFC and a home date Saturday night with sixth-seeded Detroit.

The largest little man in football. Nanohercules.

I would personally like to thank the Bolts for sending us Brees and Sproles.
They kept Norv, so maybe they'll send us some more premium players.

San Diego rocks for being such a douchbag team. Thanks!
