Spiller was always playing hurt. Red flags were there. If Spiller can't make the cut or have that burst then he is no good to us.

Re: CJ Spiller

Murphy has been a pleasant surprise.Spiller so far is an unknown to the fans. Payton has a plan ,I just hope CJ can get on the field to see how it works .Guy has star potential. He needs to get healthy quick. So does Byrd.!!!!!

Re: CJ Spiller

The thing is, our use of the satellite back was figured out. The last year Sproles was with us he was completely ineffective because teams knew what we were doing with him. We became so predictable. I think it was crazy to sign Spiller to the same contract that we gave Ingram.

Re: CJ Spiller

I have 100% faith in Spiller. Ive watched him run in college, and his transition to the NFL was seemless unlike Ingram or Reggie. So he was NFL ready day one, on a bad team. Everyone was still slow to him.
He is a pure natural HalfBack. Something Reggie was not and Sproles was not. Spiller has 1/10th sight and foresight, and has made some of the best DL and LB's look silly. You have to be born with it, can not be taught that.
He has the same mental football ability as Adrian peterson, but not the durability or shear power, but the same running ability.
This is why I think he gets hurt. He thinks all or nothing. Something that made Deuce the best. But he is more fragile than those RB's, he just does not know it and pushes it every time.

I wanted this kid in the draft. Heal him up. Spiller will come out to play day one.
Mute the song is silly


I would be stunned if he didnt do way better here than on a bad team like Buffulo, and better than any scat back we have had. Even Belicheck said he was huge problem. Reggie hit holes or died, Sproles hit holes faster or he died, spillers makes holes and finds holes he never gives up.
I really like this kid, think we will get 3 good years out of him. LOL, and he ran like this on a realllly Cr@ppy team with no OL. Im not worried. Brilliant signing.
Payton signed this kid so fast, I think, because he saw what I saw, and wanted him from the draft. Hes a pure natural half Back born to run the ball. Ask yourself a simple question what would have Spiller done with our OL, Brees, and SP from the draft ? Murphy = Spiller lol um no.
Yeah I know.

Saints proved that pigs could fly in 2009.
Now its time for another miracle SuperBowl and go where no pig has gone before.

Right! He did absolutely NOTHING to prove he was capable of being successful in a role similar to how Sean Payton would use him.

How did we ever pay so much money for a running back who only amassed 2,000yds rushing and 800yds receiving in two seasons....

Its the NFL. Who's NOT playing hurt?

The kid missed 7 games in 2014 and 1 the previous season.

Re: CJ Spiller

Being injured and missing games are two different things. All I see is a guy sitting on the bench injured who apparently isn't always injured.

Im sure Spiller got the sh@t kicked out of him being on that bad team with no OL, bad QB play. The injuries are understandable.
Remember B.Walsh said the Browns were QB killers. I cant imagin running the ball in Buffalo, amazing hes not broke forever, testament to his fighting ability.
