Something special brought Courtney Roby back to Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I love this guy. Such a huge heart. Whatever you ask him to do, he does it. There have been many preseason games where after the starters come out, and Chase came in, he would be the only one out ...

I love this guy. Such a huge heart. Whatever you ask him to do, he does it. There have been many preseason games where after the starters come out, and Chase came in, he would be the only one out there catching ANYTHING. Every year he kicks and claws and fights his way out of the bubble and onto the team, because he wants to be there.

I remember one preseason game against the 49ers, where the whole family of one of the 49er players was sitting next to me, cheering for their son/brother/boyfriend/cousin etc. Their guy was a 2nd stringer in the 49er defensive secondary, on the bubble, he came in during the 2nd quarter, I don't remember his name. But they're like, cheering for their guy, and one dude in the family goes, "they're throwing away from him, they don't like that side! He's got it locked down!". And I'm like, I don't know about that, pal, that guy Roby is pretty good, so is Chase, I wouldn't get too excited yet if I were you..... And sure enough, Chase was pulling a Drew move, and lulling the guy to sleep, throwing away from him, moving him off his position like a chess piece, THEN he throws to Roby like four or five plays straight in a row, and completely torches the dude. It was only second string preseason but one of the greatest smack talking moments I've ever had in the stands.

That was cool.

Roby is still on the bubble this year.......although I do believe that he makes it again this year.

He makes it every year due to special teams play.

Maybe this is the year he shines. He has never been much of a WR, but who knows?

Re: Something special brought Courtney Roby back to Saints

I don't care if he is "on the bubble" for the rest of his career, Roby is a huge part of our success at a very low-glory position, and his ROI on 900k is ridiculous. I have seen multiple plays a game where Roby single handedly sticks a returner for 5-10 yards less than he would have gotten without him there.

My mistake.
