These past few weeks leave me convinced that Deuce has made a realization: this organization is happy to be mediocre. Seems to me that Deuce is hungry and has no desire to play for a mediocre team that doesn\'t seem to want to get better. It also reads like frustration for one of the premier backs in the league to have to work against the coaching staff to try and win games. Reading between the lines, it seems like Deuce doesn\'t think the coaches are listening, so he\'s going to the fans. At any rate, he really doesn\'t seem happy. I\'m scared for his future with this team.

Danno,

I\'m just wondering about something - all this Deuce is no good talk, what is it based on? Sure, the guy didn\'t exactly light it up at the end of last season when we played 3 of 4 games against top 5 run defenses in the league. The one game we didn\'t? Deuce had a 100 yards.

Sure he lpayed poorly in week 1, but the entire offense did too. He had a similarly poor game in week 1 against the same team last season, and then clicked off 1600 yards. That\'s gotta be the best year for a Saints RB in 20 years... if not ever. I\'m just wondering where you\'re coming from on this. If Deuce isn\'t a top 10 RB than you need to point at McCarthy, b/c there is no doubt that the guy is a top ten talent.

I have to agree with BMG on this one. Deuce has always been a gamer but let\'s face it, the life of a RB in the NFL is not a long one. He\'s given us the yards we have needed on the ground to stabilize a sputtering offense and I think he\'s starting to get frustrated. Players aren\'t as stupid as some would have us believe, they are the first to see if something isn\'t going to work. He probably felt this way back during preseason but wanted to give it a chance before he said anything. He\'s not the only one complaining about the new offensive scheme, analysts, fans, other players and the press are also complaining. The only difference is, he\'s the one getting pounded by 300lb. defensive lineman and we all have the luxury of sitting here, in the comfort of our seats, drinking a cold one, not worrying if the next play is the end of our career because some idiot Ofeensive Coordinator decides, \"what the ****, we don\'t need a fullback, let\'s try something completely different because I don\'t know what I\'m doing anyways.\" I say, \"Geaux Deuce and may the football gods smile upon you!\"

Tell ya what. Deuce needs to quite worrying about the full back and start worrying about holdin\' on to the stupid football. Two games...two fumbles...and counting.

Count the games, yards, and fumbles so far for your answer.


Sure he lpayed poorly in week 1, but the entire offense did too.
This was never an acceptable argument when you were bashing Brooks last year.

That\'s gotta be the best year for a Saints RB in 20 years
Brooks, by the time he\'s finished, will have broken every passing record the Saints have, and likely some NFL ones too. This never made a difference in the Brooks debate, so, why should it matter where Deuce is concerned?

I\'m just wondering where you\'re coming from on this. If Deuce isn\'t a top 10 RB than you need to point at McCarthy, b/c there is no doubt that the guy is a top ten talent.
Following your argument, Deuce is top 10, but his teammates need to perform or he can\'t. Once again, this argument never held water where the Brooks debate was concerned.

I know where Danno is comin\' from. So do you. It\'s time to be honest. What\'s good for the goose is good for the gander. Eh Whodat?

Deuce just needs to get started early and if so he will be great for the rest of the game.
