If Bill Parcells comparing you to a Hall of Fame running back isn’t high expectations, I don’t know what is. Parcells let his old protégé know about this comparison before the playoffs last season. According to FOX NFL analyst John Lynch, “Parcells called this week and said, ‘Sean what are you doing? You’ve got Curtis Martin right in front of your eyes, and you’re not doing anything with him. Give him the ball.’”

Parcells probably wasn't aware of how good/bad Robinson was in pass protection.

There are 20 reasons to watch Robinson other than Parcells' view.

I've got my money on Parcels knowing what he's talking about.
Robinson looked good when he had the ball, no question.

I'll put my money on Sean Payton knowing if he can pass protect enough to buy more playing time. Payton saw him every day

If we have anything close to Curtis Martin, this offense is gonna be damn near unstoppable!

I just hope he does not have the issue he had holding on to the ball in camp like he did last year. second year backs make me nervous and I almost forgot most importantly improve on picking up the blitz

You mean like the fumble Ingram had in the playoff game against Seattle that basically cost us the game? Personally, I have never seen Robinson fumble the ball. Granted I never watched him in training camp, but still, I've never seen hi,pm fumble. Conversely, I have seen Ingram and PT fumble the ball, and I've seen them both fumble the ball in playoff games. I've also seen both PT and Ingram whiff on pass protection too, so all this stuff about learning the pass protections and fumbling is just so much balderdash. Do people think that Adrian Peterson is one of if not the best RB in the game today? Yeah, most do, and I've seen him miss blocking assignments and fumble multiple times in games, but no one in their right mind would even consider taking him out of a game. This kid we've got needs seasoning. He needs playing time, and the more he gets, the better he will become. Since when did we become placid? When did we become afraid to put promising talent on the field? This is a Payton trademark, and a Saints trademark. Let's continue to be bold and brash and do things our way, after all, it's taken us from the doldrums to a Championship and we need to continue to do what we do.
