Darren Sproles says he’ll do ‘whatever is needed’
1 Attachment(s)
METAIRIE — So, Saints fans. You say you still feel really rotten about Sunday’s 28-27 loss at Green Bay?

Well, put yourself in Darren Sproles’ shoes.

After getting a reprieve via a blown call on a fumble at the end of his kickoff return following the Packers’ go-ahead touchdown, Sproles suffered a rare drop on third down from the Green Bay 25.

Make the catch for the first down and the Saints probably either keep driving for a chip-shot field goal or maybe even a touchdown.

Either way, Saints win.

Instead, there was the bizarre sequence of a made field goal negated by a holding call, the next attempt delayed by an encroachment on the Packers, and, finally, Garrett Hartley’s miss from 48 yards out.

Welcome to the miserable world of 0-4.

“It killed me, man. It killed me,” the normally reticent Sproles said earlier this week. “I’ve never had one like (that) before. I definitely lost some sleep over that play.”

But in the NFL, you have to move on.

Talk is Cheap? Most unbiased fans would at least say this was karma for a truly horrendous call on a fumble. That call was so bad that I was embarrassed watching it! Regardless, Sproles has been consistently good this season and has kept his head up when a lot around him have let theirs drop. Do consider how much he brings to the team before we cane him for one dropped pass!

I like Sproles thinking there. Good attitude. They have to bounce back. They can do this.

I am confident that Sproles will deliver

So on Wednesday, the team’s first day back at practice, Sproles and quarterback Drew Brees stayed late to work on precisely the play that produced the drop — a quick out to Sproles who was lined up in the slot.

“I knew the drop had upset him, and he came up to me and said, ‘That’s not going to happen again,’ ” Brees said. “So we went out there and ran the play several times in a row and completed it like we always do.

“That says a lot about Darren and his mindset. He cares; he cares a lot. He is my go-to guy in all situations — especially crucial situations.”

Do you think on some of those extra snaps after practice was over, maybe Drew and Darren decided that Sproles should lead the Who Dat chant right before the game tonight?
