So Spiller appears to be a waste?

While not much can be judged from the game against Washington given Payton gave up, he was outcarried by Hightower when Ingram went down. On WWL's call-in show someone called him soft. Which begs the question if Spiller was worth bringing on? Yes he was the reason we won two games but it's obvious he's not getting the touches and when he does he's not making much with them. If Ingram were to miss time it appears there's no replacement.

With the game over, why put in Spiller and waste him getting hurt?
Nobody cares if Hightower gets hurt.

Spiller hasn't been used as much as any of us thought he would. Coach needs to either use him like Sproles or use Cooks that way and have Spiller in the slot or backfield

While I agree w this, it just goes to show how far payton's mental toughness has deteriorated. Saints used to never ever give up in their championship season. Down 17 in the 4th quarter w less than 5 minutes to play? No problem. Not anymore.

Re: So Spiller appears to be a waste?

first of all, spiller has really no seen the field much since he did not go all out for that 1rst down. he is in SP's dog house.

W should be using spiller more, a lot more, but if you're going to play look a puss, well...

Re: So Spiller appears to be a waste?

I've about given up on trying to guess what's going on behind the scenes in that organization. We might be spot on with our guesses or way the f**k off. Just when you think they're losing it,they pull off a win where we dominate and execute and everybody gets to play,followed by an embarrassing, BS performance by coaches and players the next week.

Exactly!

Reggie Bush ran out of bounds one yard short on 3rd down in 2009 and was immediately benched for the rest of the game.

It's all on Payton. And he will be gone after the season.
