Lots of people here think he's a bust and that he should be released. It's a topic worthy of discussion. I never understand why people question threads on a forum.

If he's healthy; he will see more touches and we will see his potential. Spiller can ball as that screen/draw type back, we've all seen what he's capable of with Buffalo

Spillers main issue was the 6 inches between his ears more than anything. So till he hit the field and proves that is no longer an issue I am holding back optimism. That is the hardest injury to over come once it sets in.

I am still stumped at the contract the saints signed him for. well at least Byrd has company in the stumped club.

Re: Looks like Spiller will be back

I think running a bunch of two back sets with spiller in there would be great for their running/screen game and open up deep throws. Spiller is bound to get hurt, so just play him as much as you can, while you can.

No need to try and prevent the inevitable.

Clearly. As evidenced by the numerous "brilliant" moves they've been making. I love when people just say "they know more than us". Just because they have a job in something that we aren't doing, that does not make them smart. Evaluating talent does not take a genius. It takes having eyes. I'd love to see Spiller work out, personally, and have not given up on him. But just saying they know better than us, isn't adding anything to the thread.

The reason it's a thread is because we were hearing at the end of the regular season that he was likely gone. The fact that those reports are being contradicted is noteworthy.

The fact is that they do know FAR and away more than any of us. We do not have access to practices, film, medical records, financial details, personal conversations, etc. While as you pointed out, all we have is our eyes watching limited play and reading tripe from writers that know little more than us. Opinions are fine, but any implication that they don't know what they are doing is ridiculous.

Consider source of the rumblings at the end of the season. They are paid to produce words. Fact or insight is not a requirement.

I don't know if you've noticed, but it's the year 2016 now. There isn't much that ISN'T videotaped for us to see. But why go on youtube and watch video when you can watch all of the live telecasts that are available to us in this age? So you're telling me that what happens in practice, that I might not see, is completely different from what is happening on the field?

You seem hell bent on convincing yourself that we're all a bunch of morons, as fans. Do you get a kick out of someone telling you you're dumb or something? This is not rocket science, it's football. Who cares that they have medical records and we don't? Did they not have medical records of Jairus Byrd before giving him over 50 million dollars?

You're not helping your case with that one. You can have access to everything the world can give you, and it makes no difference if you don't know what to do with it. I'm calling out Mickey Loomis, as I simply think he's a lackluster GM. People get fired in this business all the time. So unless you have a better defense for him other than saying he's paid to do it, and we're not, then I will stand by my statements.

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