Deuce is lazy?

If you're a Deuce lover .... don't read this article.. ;)

The Saints believe the drop-off in RB Deuce McAllister's production--he went from 1,641 rushing yards in 2003 to 1,074 this season and from 4.7 yards per carry to 4.0--can be traced in part to McAllister's work ethic. His lack of commitment also was a significant factor in his plummet on draft day. McAllister was expected to be a top 10 selection in 2001, but he wasn't chosen until the 23rd pick. He needs to work out harder, practice better and study more. The solution: Introduce Johnny Roland's size 13 foot to McAllister's backside. Roland, hired last week from the Packers, is one of the premier running backs coaches in the NFL. Among the players who have benefited from his work: Wilbert Montgomery, Walter Payton, Neal Anderson, Jerome Bettis, Michael Pittman, Emmitt Smith and Ahman Green. .

Why don\'t you just start a thread saying Archie is a \"crackhead\", or Hebert is gay....you sure do like to stir the pot. To make things worse, you posted it twice.

No, you just took what one person called work ethics, and translated it into lazy, and then double-posted a very degrading remark about one of the few people from our team who has had more than one trip to the pro-bowl.

No. The writer of the article is the one who suggested Deuce was lazy and I quote:

.
So it upsets you that one of your favorite players is being criticized? Hmmmmmmmm...

I don\'t know what to tell ya...

I\'ve read that article three times and still haven\'t seen the word \"lazy\" in it. Will you please cut out that part and leave the rest out of the article, because apparently I can\'t see the forrest because of the trees.

In AB\'s case, it is all about coaching, or defense, or some other excuse, but when it comes to Deuce it is all him...I guess the same excuses don\'t apply for him, right?

Saint_LB --

First, I never said Deuce was lazy. I asked if you guys thought he was lazy. That\'s why there\'s a big ol\' question on the title of this thread. You can read, right?

I\'m glad you read the article several times. You should be able to tell the writer is questioning Deuce\'s \"work ethic\".

What does \"work ethic\" mean to you. Or lack of.

Lack of work ethic = LAZY.... Get it?

Deuce is fine, down season but was injured and the line had few holes for him to run, this happens to the best of R.B\'s, you\'ll see he\'ll bounce back, just hope we keep him for a while, if he plays most of his career in N.O he\'ll go down as the best R.B in Saints history, and to answer the question no he\'s not lazy, in fact everything I heard was that he worked hard day in and day out, first time I hear these comments of him being lazy
