Re: Our New & Improved Darren Sproles???

I see great blocking and him NEVER BEING HIT. This won't happen in the NFL. Reminds me of Reggie Bush and we know how that turned out. Sprolles breaks tackles.

Archer=Trindon Holliday

Bush, when healthy, was very lethal at times. And even now, he can be very dangerous. Thomas has tremendous speed and play-making ability, something we severely lack on offense.

Thomas has amazing vision and he utilizes his blockers to perfection.I am impressed by both players,but Thomas gets my vote.

Sproles might have one more year in him. I know he wasn't explosive last year and that doesn't bode well for him getting older. Draft picks for a 3rd or 4th sounds good to me too.

Re: Our New & Improved Darren Sproles???

I'd prefer Archer instead of Thomas. Thomas not only has no true position, he can't catch. While he's an explosive athlete, he's the type of player that will field a punt inside the 10 trying to make a big play than let the ball go for a touch back. While he will keep you on the edge of your seat, he will also cause you to gouge your eyes out. Every time he fields a kick, you're going to have a Hartley type feeling rolling around in your gut. He could fumble the ball or take it to the house.

He's a smaller Reggie Bush w/o a refined skill set. I honestly felt he should have been a defensive back in college.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Our New & Improved Darren Sproles???

For RBs... burst, vision, and elusive cutting trumps speed. Go through the past Combine results for RB 40 times... For the most part the top 3 fastest RBs from each year are not names we know.
