Darren Sproles vs. Reggie Bush: Who's the superior weapon?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Face it. The Saints rarely have good fortune with first round draft picks. May need to begin following the Bellicheck draft Philosophy....

I think Reggie is great and I wish him nothing but success in the rest of his career. I root for him when I see the Dolphins play.

But that being said...

Sproles... and in my mind, it's not even close.

Last season Sproles came in and filled Reggie's role. There wasn't an offseason to prepare Sproles or to come up with plays designed for his talents, he had to fit into the position built for Reggie. Not only did he do it, he did it better than Reggie ever did. Sproles is the running back we always wanted Reggie to be.

I will say it like I said where you lifted this post from. Reggie was not good when he was here and made of glass. He had all the potential in the world but never did anything that would make me believe he had any impact on the outcome of any game. Sproles has done more in one year than Reggie did in 6 years and he did it in SD too. Sproles is what Reggie was supposed to be. Yea Reggie had a good year in Miami, but that was his first and it was only solid. Sproles was putting up solid numbers in SD too. Anybody who would argue on the side of Reggie in this argument is like a Falcons fan who still cannot let go of Vick.

Edit
Just goes to show you how the philosophy on two different boards can be at such opposite ends of the spectrum. On that other board almost all said Reggie. I love how the posters here are so down to earth and seem to look at things from a realistic point of view. Another reason why I love this place.

Reggie gained mind boggling yardage, he must of had 1800+ yards each season.

Horizontally.

highlight of the article;

"Bush, in particular, is an outstanding perimeter runner"

Sproles is a god and should not be compared to lesser mortals.
