He would need vision to be what PT was.
Ingram STILL runs up peoples back rather than break left or right.
CJ never impressed me. Probably never impressed Payton either.
We haven't had a PT since PT.
Screen was a BIG part of Sean Payton-Saint-Brees success.
It's a piece Payton has been looking for and hasn't found it since PT left.
CJ was a crap shoot and it just didn't work out.
Sproles replaced Reggie and we never lost a beat.
In fact, Sproles was an upgrade in efficiency.
The Sproles impact is also still a void.
The Graham impact is still a void.
Payton just has to figure out how to use what we have and get the most out of it.

I agree Sproles was a bump up from Reggie but by Sproles last year team had adapted. They new how to line up by who was on tbe field. Sproles was getting hit early before he could get going. Thats why i said we need a alltound RB who can do both and keep defenses on their heels. Somebody with the ability to break of 50/60 yards if they get a break.

Just don't understand why we spent so much on Spiller when there were obvious holes across the depth chart...

And none of the media groupie wussies like Holder, Underhill nor Triplett have the brass to press the question...

They're more interested in their hair or other distractions...

All of the reporters close to the teams wont say anything the team doesn't want to hear. They are worried loosing the tidbits of info and access

Benson was trying to buy the Times-Picayune when he gobbled up the local Fox Station...

Benson hired Jim Henderson and put him on Fox and has him as the Mercedes spokesman...

Henderson and Peter Finney were the only two media men Benson would tread
lightly...

Guess that's why we saw such an immediate hack job on Renee Benson after being a media darling...

It's like Payton thinks Cadet is the next Ronnie Harmon. I just don't see it at all.

i'm telling yall its a chest popping contest with payton. you bow up in front of the little general you will be bumped from his squad, no matter what the consequences; hes the man and he is a parcels guy, he did the same thing. he would cut your but with just a bad joke. something else happened between them 2 that will not be repeated till payton writes his bio.
