To answer your question, NO. Our coaches have scrapped what works to rework the offense with what does not work.

There's coaching malpractice everywhere in our offense.

Payton is too predictable,

Toss to sproles
Flare pass to sproles
slant pass or out to sproles

those are the 3 plays he has that payton calls

Sproles was hammered there for a stretch. Teams have gotten better at game planning for Sproles and Graham. With the inconsistent running attack the receivers have needed to step up, but with the lack of protection from the O-line, that has been hard to accomplish because Brees doesn't have time to get them the ball.

Are you serious? Not busting your chops here, but if you dont win where do you see us playing in what playoffs. I'm scared as hell for this game coming up.

Re: Sproles being phased out?

I for one am sick of the committee approach that our offense has become, its been figured out and is no longer effective

If we are going to use sproles we need to stop being so damn predictable, if we are not using him lets go forward with pierre, ingram and khiry and see what we can get for sproles.

We need a real number one WR, someone that isnt brought into the game for 2 snaps and then replaced by someone else for the sake of "matchups"

Maybe Sproles just isn't all that good anymore.

+1.. just about every time we substituted Ingram (after a positive run I might add) for Pierre, Luke Kuechly was licking his chops. He knew the damn play as if he was in our huddle.

He just doesn't look as quick anymore. He used to stop and go on a dime and was full speed after 2 steps. I'm not seeing that anymore.

Also, Lance Moore doesn't look as quick in and out of breaks as he used to.

Even PT looks a half-step slower than last year.

I wonder if age is finally catching up to some of these guys?
