With Drew at QB defenses have to account for everyone.

I respect Coltson but I'm calling BS, loosing Sproles took away some of the predictability to this offense if anything the questionable play calling is more to blame

But we had a Defense, and Bush. Way better than Cadet

Valid point, all I can say is they have young players that are of uncommon quality in terms of attitude. Look, when we have players missing flights, late for meetings etc...no way that was going on in Seattle.

Can't believe I'm saying this but the loss of Jenkins and Harper hurt this team more than the loss of Sproles and I was happy to see can't tackle and can't cover leave

Re: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston says loss of Darren Sproles contributed to offensive struggles

Sproles was a huge part of our offense.... Sean Payton has always had that type of quick back to come out the back field catch passes and make plays... Reggie Bush... Darren Sproles.... This year no one... And that was a huge part we missed on offense... Yeah Brandin Cooks end around worked a few times but he isn't a RB.... He is a WR

Re: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston says loss of Darren Sproles contributed to offensive struggles

Bush trade lead us to Sproles. that was a solid option but his impact was not so great as Bush

Sproles trade leads us to cook. that failed to have the same kind of impact

Cooks lack of impact on defenses could lead us yet again to drafting another player that will cause teams to adjust to SP toy.

Cadet and Ingram give the saints the rosters spots.

my gut says the saints will be looking at Melvin Gordon, Duke Johnson or Ameer Abdullah to fill the roll

i like Rannell Hall UCF to fill Cadets roll

SP offensive game requires this type of impact player. always has and always will.

I'd like them to draft Duke in one of the mid rounds
