C.J. Spiller: Reason for lack of playing time not for me to answer

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He's not getting enough touches as was the situation in Buffalo... So, that begs the question, "Why do coaches not give C.J. Spiller more touches?" Starting to think we shouldn't sign free agents from Buffalo... The logic escapes me how ...

The logic escapes me how you'd assign that contract to him and not use him...

Yet you scheme an entire defense around Cam Jordan when that plan clearly has failed...

Apparently, he's not as dynamic as people thought. I have been surprised by his lack of big play ability. He needs to get juiced or something.

Payton said that one reason why he isn't playing more is pass protection. I have to agree with that statement. Hoped we would draft RB (someone like Jeremy Langford), not give this contract to Spiller.

If he wants more playing time we could use him at corner. Hell he couldn't be worse than the Flag Man.

Re: C.J. Spiller: Reason for lack of playing time not for me to answer

? No clue. Clearly the best RB and a top offensive threat with 5 touches a game ? and those are usually the typical busted sweep plays our OL cant block for anymore?
What a waste. Needs 15-20 touches. If I was CJ Id leave before SP ruins my stats completely.

We didn't score any points for the rest of the game.....
but ingram couldnt get a missely 12 inchs either that killed a drive

Oh you mean the 5 touches, um yeah. He should order a pizza, answer some email, pay some bills during the game and then tear off for his 1 touch a quarter.
You give CJ Ingrams touches and he'd blow him out of the water, even the up the middle runs. Worst thing you can do to an good RB is run him cold. He has no feel for the defense,OL, or the field. He's being mismanaged is what is happening.
We are wasting the best RB we have, and could have won a few more games if they would use him. Even NE cant believe we are not using him. They considered spiller their #1 threat on the Bills.
Should have traded Ingram kept Ivory, I said before.

Now its time for another miracle SuperBowl and go where no pig has gone before.

Re: C.J. Spiller: Reason for lack of playing time not for me to answer

we need another PT in the backfield for pass protection. That would allow SP to use CJ more like Darren Sproles or a Reggie Bush

the search continues
