See the progression?

Remember a head coach that took what he had in his first season and challenged for a conference championship?!?

How can he do anything if he's either not in the field or not getting the ball? Not that I disagree but I still think it's an injury issue. He looked like a decoy today more than anything. And it led to a TD

Looks to me the writing is on the wall, Spiller is done in New Orleans. Seriously, Hightower gets 28 carries to Spiller's 3? Just not looking good for Spiller at this point.

Where is C.J.? Off my fantasy roster, that's for sure, .

Re: where is CJ Spiller?

He hasn't been given much of a chance, but he's done virtually nothing with what chances he's had. I don't get why... This guy was a dynamic talent just a couple of years ago, and he's still young. He doesn't look elusive or powerful, or anything positive right now.

I think it's too soon to be thinking about getting rid of him, though. 3 years left on his contract... And I don't think we'd get anything in a trade. They let Ingram plod his way around for 3 years before he ever showed any glimmer of ability.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Well stated .

I think the Saints would be crazy to get rid of CJ. This guy is a very good player and they will have to pay him one way or the other next season.

If the front off would cut him (which I don't think they will do), that would be a panic move more than anything else.

Side note: For whatever reason he doesn't run fluid. Hips appear to be stiff with little lateral speed. I'm starting to wonder if he is still nursing that off season injury, no?

I've noticed the same thing. This guy was so quick and elusive before coming here, and he just doesn't look like the same person. It's one thing to blame things on the O-line (which isn't hard to do), but you can tell that he just doesn't have it, even when there is a crease. The word you used is exactly what he looks like. Stiff.

It does make one wonder just how healthy he is.

He can barely change direction when he runs, my dad could elude more defenders than Spiller can.

Re: where is CJ Spiller?

Did you see him miss the blitz pickup and got Brees sacked?? That's what keeps you on the bench. He is struggling with the playbook and to me it appears he doesn't trust his knee yet to make cuts. But until he learns the playbook and picks up a blitz before releasing for a pass, his ass will ride the pine.

Re: where is CJ Spiller?

He reminds me a Reggie when he was a rookie. Couldn't find the hole with a seeing eye dog. He's struggling with our offense and I place that blame upon him. He'd be in more if he proved during practice he knew what he needed to do.
