Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

He wanted to stay, he found out he was traded via Twitter - face it, whatever happened, maybe it was an accident, or a slip-up, but if that's true, then that aspect of it was handled VERY poorly by the Saints organization. His wife going off on a rant was kind of comical, but still....team could have handled it better.

Now he has earned NFC Special Teams Player of the Week and NFC Offensive Player of the Week awards this year, the first player in league history to do so in the same season. OK, which current Saints player on the roster has done anything CLOSE to that, this year? Just name one, I'm waiting!

Until things change, I think some Saints fans just need to chill out, look at their own team's predicament, and get used to being on the dumping end of the bucket with stuff like this. I can't believe all the hate and putdowns directed at Sproles, here and elsewhere, when it WAS the Saints front office who screwed up that situation.

Between Sproles, Jenkins, Harper, & De La Punte, it seems like some Saints players have left the Saints, and they seem to be doing pretty well at their new destinations. Meanwhile, some guys, like Brodrick Bunkley & Pierre Thomas for example, took a pay cut and stayed, and are doing pretty miserable.

We've apparently got a team and a locker room that's literally falling apart. Factions in the locker room, rumors that veteran guys are unhappy, we have big money stars acting like big shots and underperforming, we have players throwing temper tantrums on the sidelines, a hopelessly confused defense of 2nd string nobodies, and idiotic fake punts. GOOD GRIEF.

Judging from how harshly some Saints fans are jumping on Sproles, it looks like he hit a nerve!

Ask Drew Brees about being disrespected.

Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

Sproles said he was told by Saints coach Sean Payton that he was being released, only to find out on Twitter he would be traded instead.

lack of professional courtesy i agree. but professional courtesy is as good as a mans word and a hand shake in business today. not worth a thing. so why the surprise?

Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

hagan and Saintsbro, I like how you both said that .
Very well said!!!

MEANWHILE, lets get back to worrying at Saints 2014 who are very rich in talent who have very rich contracts too and we are not seeing too much work.
W-L. L-W. Cannot win them all, but the Saints have been playing overall, very poorly so far.

Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

First it was just his wife, or girlfriend or whatever she is (I can't remember) running her mouth at the Saints and now he's at it? Now I really don't miss him. He stunk last year. Period. He was healthy, and he did nothing. It got to the point that every time he was in the game you knew exactly what was coming, as we tried to force feed the crap out of him, with horrible results. He's had one good game for Philly. Let's not even act like he's making a come back after he had one good game and a couple so-so games.

Same thing with Jenkins. "he's ball hawking for them, we shouldn't have let him go". And uh.... how is that defense looking? Is he getting burned on pretty much every pass in the middle of the field? I bet he is. Don't miss either of them.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

You mean that same predictable offense that ranks 3rd best in the NFL?

Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

We are getting stopped more on third downs and in the red zone more settling for three points instead...

Whether it's being predictable, failure to execute in individual assignments, age, or a combination of same, there's something askew...
