What about CJ Spiller?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Sorry if I missed something about him. Just trying to pick up info. Is he hurt, in the dog house, or just sat and watched. I just didn't see him play, and from what I hear he is looking better....

Re: What about CJ Spiller?

It was a last minute decision by Coach Peyton to make him inactive. Apparently he wasn't part of the gameplan for this week. I don't think he is in the dog house, rather we're shuffling the roster week to week.

He was a healthy scratch. Can't tell you why?

I wish I knew. He looked explosive in the pre-season with his speed and cuts.

Then comes the real season and we're giving those touches to Cadet. I don't get it.

Anytime Cadet is chosen over you, you have issues. Payton said Cadet fit the gameplan better. I don't get it seeing how nothing Cadet did yesterday, Spiller couldn't have probably done better.

It's because Cadet is better than Spiller.

Said no one ever.

Well I don't think you pay someone $4 million/year to be a healthy inactive. I'm not buying the game plan explanation. Something's up.

But this regime has shown time and time again that they will play the best players, regardless of contract or draft status.

Cadet probably plays special teams better than Spiller so he does more on gameday.

Which RB's we activate isn't the problem.

Maybe, but he would have been a difference maker against da Raiders.
