Deuce is lazy?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I guess playing on a bad ankle, missing 2 games, and being so far behind early in games didn\'t have any thing to do with his drop off this year after all ! Not to mention all of the holding ...

Deuce is lazy?

I guess playing on a bad ankle, missing 2 games, and being so far behind early in games didn\'t have any thing to do with his drop off this year after all ! Not to mention all of the holding calls that brought back some of his runs. You just got to love the media and they wonder why Saban doesn\'t want them around. Deuce is the man, Sully is the one that needs a Shaq size foot in his rear!

Deuce is lazy?

Its been said for a couple years that Deuce isn\'t exactly a workout warrior. It hasn\'t been an issue because he\'s produced big numbers. Well now its starting to catch up to him.
Yes, I think he is lazy. I\'ve stated that for a year and a half now. Now he\'s getting banged up, yet again.

Ernie Conwell caught him from behind on a breakaway!
And caught him rather easily. I just can\'t believe Saints fans are excusing the obvious.

Deuce is fat and slow!

Excuses, excuses, excuses. That’s all anyone ever makes for the New Orleans Saints’ organization.

C\'mon Danno. I think it is plainfully obvious that Conwell could not catch Deuce in a sprint. From watching that play it is equally obvious that Deuce was looking for something behind him as he ran. My guess is he was trying to let Conwell get in front of him for a block. You may be right after all in saying he was overweight and he may have a problem with conditioning, but to continually use this one play, when there is certainly something going on in it which should mitigate the accusation that Conwell ever could outrun Deuce, is overlooking the big picture in order to make a point.

The big picture is our 225 lb 4.3 speed RB is slowly turning into a 240 lb 4.8 speed Ironhead Heyward. It was obvious he started slowing down last year. Its a shame that so few refuse to acknowledge it for whatever reason. I guess past success earns him a free pass. I say BS.
He is our best player, and one of our team leaders. He needs to start acting like it.

Hey Not making excuses here or anything......
Do you guys think that his drop in production has anything to do with a terrible O line........ I bet you guys can\'t remember a single play that Deuce was able to get past the line of scrimage without being hit....... and yet he still had a 4.0 per cary av. come on 4 x 3 = 12 withoout a 5 yard illegal motion procedure on nearly every series and a hold or two damn he is still a first down Machine... Our O line was Disasterous this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :casstet:

I Do agree though that Deuce had a hard Year this year, ankle and all.... He was not in the best shape, but lets hope this is corrected, not only do we have a RB coach but according to our own B&G we are interveiwing Rb coach from Denver for OC......... I think Deuce will respond when challenged, I just wish Brooks would, I mean Really I have heard for 3 years that \"this year is make or Break for Brooks\"
Just had to add that to stir the POT!!!!!!!!!!

I got \"railed\" for suggesting he wasn\'t the second coming, and sure I recognize he\'s a horse, but he keeps getting propped up for two years ago. DM\'s initials aren\'t AB. If they were the \"free ride\" would be Ovah!

Well one difference between AB and DM, we know we chose the right runningback........ err.... Ricky Williams.......

But With Arron the Jury is still way out....... And Arron supporters better hope J.T. O\'sullivan is a flop, Cause Our Home town Boy just left NO to take Carolina to the superbowl...
I do not like being hard on Arron, Trust me I wish him the best luck ...... but I do not beleive in him like I do Deuce or Horn, cause in my opinion they have left it all on the feild, Arronn always seems to walk off the feild with at least a half a tank...... I wish he would let it all hang out and be a leader by example......

In Deuces Case he has done that, only in my opinion from watching the games... He does need to work harder!!! I feel Hypocritical saying that as I sit here typing out of shape , But I am not being paid huge bucks to play Pro football either!!!!!!!!! I think with this new RB coach, and possible new ex Rb coach from Denver as a OC, the coaching staff is sending a message.......

maybe they wont draft a Rb in the First Round LOL........

This is a journalist that\'s trying to get some pub.

When your running back produces 4 yards a carry, don\'t blame him when the coach won\'t hand him the ball or the defense gets behind early in the game, and inturn you\'re forced to abandon the run. The only problem I\'ve ever had with Deuce is his missed blocking assignments. There\'s nothing wrong with his running.
