Hold your breath!

As a Saints fan, I think Deuce\'s injury is very misfortunate. When any team lines up against us, they know that Deuce can burn them if he gets a hole, and that part of our offense is out for the next 4 games at best.

The character of this team will be tested in the coming weeks and everybody will have to fill the gap. Whether you think Deuce`s contributions lately have been up to our expectations or not, our potential to have a strong running game has now fell in the \"I doubt it\" catagory. I can\'t really see any blessing or silver lining over Duece\'s injury, unless it\'s a total combined team effort by both offense and defense, special teams, and by each and every player, to make a conscience effort to play 4 quarters of mistake-free football.

If we can stop these stupid penalties like \"false starts\" and \"running into the kicker\", if our defense can shut down somebody`s running game, if the same Brooks keeps showing up that showed up last week, if our receivers can continue to keep actually catching the ball, if our O-line starts making holes........ then when Deuce gets back, I will push my sister-n-law off the terrace level to land on Deuce as he enters the dome.

I agree maybe losing Duece was a blessing in disguise it will show the true character of the team. We did it without Ricky can we without Duece. Of course ricky was gone for the season. Until we got to playoffs. Right after Blacke got hurt.

U wouldn\'t stand for it if this was AB, nor would it make sense.
None of the AB stuff made sense eh? I knew you\'d come around.

I guess it takes 2 fumbles, and 1 injury to get all the Deuce haters out, and talking smack about the best player on this team. That\'s pathetic! The 2 fumbles are indefensible, but it\'s the first 2 games of the season, and it doesn\'t help when you have to make moves 3 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Were you people watching the same games that I was? The real problem is the coaching staff being afraid to abandon the 2 TE offense.

I don\'t think anyone is hatin on Deuce, Just being real about the situation. He has\'nt been himself and maybe he needed the break and maybe the team needed to have their crutch taken away for a while so they can play like they are supposed too.

The real problem is the coaching staff
I agree. Deuce has proven that he has talent and ability, 2 fumbles (one directly
following a painful injury) don\'t constitute a call for his head. The coaching staff,
on the other hand, hasn\'t proven their ability to bring a consistant football team to
the turf each week. I think the Saints have the talent, but I don\'t think it is being
used effectively by the coaching staff. JMO.

I like a player that plays up to his potential. If a guy can\'t do it, I\'m gonna gripe. If he does do it, then I\'ll love him.
So then, here\'s a question for you. Since say, oh, last November, do you consider what Deuce has done (or in fact not done -- score) \"playing up to his potential\"?
