When asked if there is one thing he wants to work on this offseason, Darren Sproles was quick to answer.

“Be more patient,” responded Sproles. “I need to let the play develop just a little bit more. Let more holes open up and visualize my route before I take off.”

That vision Sproles is talking about is what FB Jed Collins says is the key to Sproles’ knack for making big plays.

“I don’t think the average fan understands how great his vision is,” said Collins. “He has even helped me in knowing where people are going to be after the snap, their responsibilities and coverages. His vision helps in setting up blocks, making the first guy miss and knowing where the second guy is coming from.”

Although his approach might change slightly, his goal every time he touches the ball remains the same.

“To help us win,” said Sproles. “As long as I get in the end zone it doesn’t matter how I got there.”

One of our best acquisitions ever... It seems like Darren isn't going to slow down anytime soon, only get better! I knew there was a reason that I got that #43 jersey!

I hope we find someone else to return punts/kicks. I'd like to keep this little dynamo around for a long long time.

He gets run down as advertised. We need a dedicated returner with real speed but doubt we get one.

The difference between a good player and a great player is Football IQ.

Cadet was pretty shaky last season as a return man, but just wait until ol' Sean gets on his ass and whips him into shape. I think he'll benefit from actually having a head coach next season and Darren will get a rest.
