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

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Damn good thread going on here! The Super Bowl has been mentioned and I'm thinking that was the 2009 season. We are now coming into 2015 it's almost hard to believe how long ago that really was....

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

All I'm saying is Sproles was a great player for us and fit our scheme well,but the last year he was here he really wasn't setting the world on fire and I know most of you can agree with that. Sproles leaving had little to no effect at all on our offensive struggles. Dropped passes and Not protecting Brees was the problem,along with lack of emotion and execution. I think we let go of Spoles at the right time.

which is why I'm back to being hard on every move they make again, the honeymoon is over for winning a championship plus the window is closing because like it or not accept the fact that the Saints will spiral back to mediocrity once Brees retires

Then why didn't you ask me instead of being a douche? My point is not that complicated...we won a Super Bowl without him and now all of a sudden our offense can't function because he left? We all know what contributed to our problems,and losing Sproles isn't one of them.

Your line of logic doesn't make sense.

This is a completely different team then 09. Hell, by 2011 when Sproles was brought on we only had 10 players remaining from the SB roster. We won a Superbowl without Cooks, Jimmy, Stills, Ingram so we might as well get rid of all of them... Oh wait Goodwin won a Superbowl with us so obviously we should keep him, can we bring Shanle back too?

Not trying to be a Douche, but I do feel I'm pointing out the obvious.

Lastly, Colston didn't say the offense could function without him, he just said they were different and less effective without him.

Things end up different if Cooks doesn't go on IR and the play calling wasn't so predictable for most of the season

You did not point out the obvious,you responded with sarcasm because my comment wasn't logical to you. I understand your thinking,but you're looking way to deep into my comment. It was just a simple comment towards Colston's BS remark. It comes across to me like he's making excuses. If you disagree with me,that's fine but if you still don't understand,then just let it go.

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

Problem is simple football, Line of Scrimmage...

And when we took on what was then upstarts like Seattle, San Fran in the playoffs they weren't intimidated by our offense...

We had a very, very effective offensive line that could smack teams in the mouth in the past...

Nicks left, Evans and Strief got older, like Parcells, Madden et al would say, it starts upfront...

We get to where we can easily pick up two downs by just snapping the ball, which...

Having a powerful offensive line 'masks' inefficiencs of our defense, because...

Or having that lunch pail front seven type on defense that could scrap and scrape and weren't wore out from losing the time of possession...

But fixing the offensive line can happen real fast this offseason cause it's like having a group of bullies that have the ball and no one can get to it because it's protected...

I mean look at what Dallas achieved and they have Romo at quarterback; and Dallas smacked Seattle this season...

Fix the offensive line. Fix the defensive front seven. Celebrate Lombardi Gras again...

I wonder what an upgrade at center would do for Grubbs?

And the D line has excellent your talent in Jordan and Hicks.
