You think so? What about all the talk about just hanging in there until 2017? There's a few teams out there that would gladly take SP and are in the market for a H/C, Detroit being one of them, and I'd kinda' like to see him make that move ... if he's gotta' go, .

Re: So Spiller appears to be a waste?

I can see the speed returning and the cuts are getting sharper.

BUT what i do see is Spiller trusting that knee. Mentally he is not just not there, unlike Hightower.

Will spiller ever get over his fear? That is the question.

Re: So Spiller appears to be a waste?

So, by the stats after 9 games in:
Rushing 30/110 yds
Receiving 26/ 208 yds
2 TDS/ 1 Fumble

This is roughly 3 carries and 2+ receptions per game. Really? This is what you paid for? SP isn't giving this guy the rock, but no one seems to know why.

Re: So Spiller appears to be a waste?

Coach has packed it in. It's my opinion but he doesn't have the same control over this team. Remember in the past, players would talk about how they were afraid of getting the "look" from Payton when they screwed up? You don't hear anything about that anymore. This team does not fear him like they use to. He has lost this team and I really don't think he will make it past this season.

I hope I am wrong. I've stated before that I hope Payton stays but his buddies have got to go. We need some fresh ideas and we are not gonna get them from the current staff.

Apparently Spiller just isn't explosive as Payton thought and he isn't elusive either. I agree that he looks tentative.

If I am Payton Spiller doesn't get many looks either. He's done nothing to deserve them. Ingram would get every carry and reception with Robinson being out. He has been fighting for every yard he can. Spiller has been fighting for nothing.

Re: So Spiller appears to be a waste?

So I might need to drop Spiller from my fantasy team. Should I go ahead and pull the trigger and should Ingram get hurt just rely on DWill and Gore as my number 2 and 3? I also have Matt Jones but who knows with him. I also have Watkins, Decker, Hurns.
