SCOTT FERRELL: Saints, Deuce face weighty issue

February 13, 2005

"The Saints weren't happy with RB Deuce McAllister's conditioning or performance this season. He carried about eight pounds more than coaches would like, and it showed in his lack of speed. Look for the team to work McAllister hard to get his weight down to around 225.''

The Sporting News probably shouldn't count New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister among its readers.

Which came 1st, gaining weight, then the injuries
Or injuries then the weight gain.

Deuce at 225 = Pro-bowler.
Deuce at 240 = Ron Dayne.

Ron Dayne never had a 1000 yard season as far as I know. Of course, you\'re overlooking one major stat...

440 yards in the last 4 games. That\'s 110 yards per game at the weight you\'re complaining about. It didn\'t seem to bother him any during those games.

As far as injuries...McAllister had a similar injury before in his career when he probably fit the 250 lb bill you seem to want him to fit now, so logic doesn\'t dictate that injuries are a weight issue either.

Scotty, you\'re a pretty knowledgable guy. But if you can\'t see a drastic difference in the 2002 Deuce and the 2004 Deuce then there\'s no way I\'ll convince you of anything. I\'m not overlooking any stats. I don\'t need to look at stats to see he looks slower and fatter than he ever has.

Deuce is overweight. Point out all the stats you want, they\'d be better if Deuce was at 225.

And the Ron Dayne example was simply an example. Also Ron Dayne never got a free pass to be the starter for 16 games either. He could have probably averaged the measly 64 yards/game necessary to eclipse Fat McAllisters numbers.

More and more reports keep pouring in about McAllister\'s condition problems and the excuses keep piling up.

But what would our beloved Saint do without excuse after excuse. Excuses, excuses, thats all anyone ever makes for the Saints.
